    1 David, tempted by Satan, forces Joab to number the people. 5 The captains, in nine months and twenty days, bring the muster of thirteen hundred thousand fighting men. 10 David repents, and having three plagues propounded by God, chooses the three days' pestilence. 15 After the death of three score and ten thousand, David by prayer prevents the destruction of Jerusalem. 18 David, by God's direction, purchases Araunah's threshing floor; where having sacrificed, the plague stays. VERSE 1 - A.M. 2987. B.C. 1017. An. Ex. Is. 474. again. * 2Sa 21:1-14 - he. This verse, when read without reference to any other part of the word of God, is very difficult to understand, and has been used by those who desire to undermine the justice of God, to shew that he sought occasion to punish--that he incited David to sin; and when he had so incited him, gave to him the dreadful alternative of choosing one of three scourges by which his people were to be cut off. On the face of the passage these thoughts naturally arise, because "the Lord" is the antecedent to the pronoun "he,"--He moved David. But to those who "search the Scriptures," this exceedingly difficult passage receives a wonderful elucidation, By referring to 1 Ch 1 21:1, the reader will there find that Satan was the mover, and that the Lord most righteously punished David for the display of pride he had manifested. Oh! that Christians, who sometimes have their minds harassed with doubts, would remember the promise, that what they know not now they shall know hereafter; and if no other instance of elucidation than this passage occurred to them to remove their doubts, let this be a means of stirring them up to dig deeper than ever into the inexhaustible mines of the Inspired Word. * Jas 13 1:13,14 - moved. * 2Sa 12:11; 16:10 Ge 45:5; 50:20 Ex 7:3 1Sa 26:19 1Ki 22:20-23 * Eze 14:9; 20:25 Ac 4:28 2Th 2:11 - Go, number. * 1Ch 27:23,24 VERSE 2 - Joab. * 2Sa 2:13; 8:16; 20:23; 23:37 - Go now, etc. or, Compass now all. * 1Ch 21:2 - from Dan. * 2Sa 3:10; 17:11 Jud 20:1 - and number. We know not in what the sinfulness of this action consisted. Some think it was a contempt of the promise that the Israelites should be innumerable, and that they ought not to have been numbered without an express command, as in the days of Moses. Others suppose with Josephus that it was a kind of sacrilege, in omitting to collect the half-shekel a-piece for the use of the sanctuary. It however would appear that pride and ambition, and a desire of conquest, induced David to this measure, and rendered it so displeasing to God. - that I may. * De 8:13,14 2Ch 32:25,26,31 Pr 29:23 Jer 17:5 2Co 12:7 VERSE 3 * 2Sa 10:12 1Ch 21:3,4 Ps 115:14 Pr 14:28 Isa 60:5 VERSE 4 - the king's. * 1Ch 21:4 Ec 8:4 - went out. * Ex 1:17 Ac 5:29 VERSE 5 - Aroer. * De 2:36 Jos 13:9,16 1Sa 30:28 Isa 17:2 - river. or, valley.
