2 Samuel 24
NMV
24
1And again the anger of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) was kindled against Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God], and he moved David [beloved] against them to say, Go, number Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] and Y’hudah [Let Him (God) Be Praised].
2For the king said to Yo’av [Yehovah is father] the captain of the host, which [was] with him, Go now through all the tribes of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God], from Dan [Judge] even to Be’er-sheva [Well of the sevenfold Oath], and number you2f the people, that I may know the number of the people.
3And Yo’av [Yehovah is father] said unto the king, Now the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) youi God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] add unto the people, how many soever they be, an hundredfold, and that the eyes of my lord the king may see [it]: but why does my lord the king delight in this thing?
4Yet the king’s word prevailed against Yo’av [Yehovah is father], and against the captains of the host. And Yo’av [Yehovah is father] and the captains of the host went out from the presence of the king, to number the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God].
5And they passed over Yarden [Descender], and pitched in ‘Aeo’er [Ruins], on the right side of the city that [lies] in the midst of the river of Gad [Good Fortune with Troublesome Effort], and toward Ya’zer [Helped]:
6Then they came to Gil’ad [Rocky Region], and to the land of Tachtim-Hodshi [lowest-moon]; and they came to Dan-Ya’an [purposeful judgment], and about to Tzidon [Hunting],
7And came to the strong hold of Tzor [a rock], and to all the cities of the Hivi [Villagers], and of the Kena’ani [Merchants]: and they went out to the south of Y’hudah [Let Him (God) Be Praised], [even] to Be’er-sheva [Well of the sevenfold Oath].
8So when they had gone through all the land, they came to Yerushalayim [Foundation of Peace] at the end of nine months and twenty days.
9And Yo’av [Yehovah is father] gave up the sum of the number of the people unto the king: and there were in Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] eight hundred thousand valiant men that drew the sword; and the men of Y’hudah [Let Him (God) Be Praised] [were] five hundred thousand men.
10And David’s [beloved]’s heart struck him after that he had numbered the people. And David [beloved] said unto the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), I have sinned greatly in that I have done: and now, I beseech (to call upon; appeal; beg) youi, O Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), take away the iniquity of youi servant; for I have done very foolishly.
11For when David [beloved] was up in the morning, the word of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) came unto the prophet Gad [Good Fortune with Troublesome Effort], David’s [beloved]’s seer, saying,
12Go and say unto David [beloved], Thus says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), I offer youi three [things]; choose youi one of them, that I may [do it] unto youi.
13So Gad [Good Fortune with Troublesome Effort] came to David [beloved], and told him, and said unto him, Shall seven years of famine come unto youi in youri land? or will youi flee three months before youri enemies, while they pursue youi? or that there be three days’ pestilence in youri land? now advise, and see what answer I shall return to him that sent me.
14And David [beloved] said unto Gad [Good Fortune with Troublesome Effort], I am in a great strait: let us fall now into the hand of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate); for his mercies [are] great: and let me not fall into the hand of man.
15So the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) sent a pestilence upon Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] from the morning even to the time appointed: and there died of the people from Dan [Judge] even to Be’er-sheva [Well of the sevenfold Oath] seventy thousand men.
16And when the angel stretched out his hand upon Yerushalayim [Foundation of Peace] to destroy it, the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) repented him of the evil, and said to the angel that destroyed the people, It is enough: stay now youri hand. And the angel of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) was by the threshing place of Aravnah [I shall shout for joy] the Y’vusi [Threshers].
17And David [beloved] spoke unto the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) when he saw the angel that struck the people, and said, Lo, I have sinned, and I have done wickedly: but these sheep, what have they done? let youri hand, I pray youi, be against me, and against my father’s house.
18And Gad [Good Fortune with Troublesome Effort] came that day to David [beloved], and said unto him, Go up, rear an altar unto the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) in the threshing floor of Aravnah [I shall shout for joy] the Y’vusi [Threshers].
19And David [beloved], according to the saying of Gad [Good Fortune with Troublesome Effort], went up as the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) commanded.
20And Aravnah [I shall shout for joy] looked, and saw the king and his servants coming on toward him: and Aravnah [I shall shout for joy] went out, and bowed himself before the king on his face upon the ground.
21And Aravnah [I shall shout for joy] said, For what reason is my lord the king come to his servant? And David [beloved] said, To buy the threshing floor of youi, to build an altar unto the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), that the plague may be detained (held) from the people.
22And Aravnah [I shall shout for joy] said unto David [beloved], Let my lord the king take and offer up what [seems] good unto him: behold, [here be] oxen for burnt sacrifice, and threshing instruments and [other] instruments of the oxen for wood.
23All these [things] did Aravnah [I shall shout for joy], [as] a king, give unto the king. And Aravnah [I shall shout for joy] said unto the king, The Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) youi God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] accept youi.
24And the king said unto Aravnah [I shall shout for joy], No; but I will surely buy [it] of youi at a price: neither will I offer burnt offerings unto the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) my God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] of that which does cost me nothing. So David [beloved] bought the threshing floor and the oxen for fifty shekels of silver.
25And David [beloved] built there an altar unto the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), and offered burnt offerings and peace offerings. So the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) was entreated for the land, and the plague was detained (held) from Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God].
