1 καὶ ἔστη διάβολος ἐν τῷ Ισραηλ καὶ ἐπέσεισεν τὸν Δαυιδ τοῦ ἀριθμῆσαι τὸν Ισραηλ 2 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Δαυιδ πρὸς Ιωαβ καὶ πρὸς τοὺς ἄρχοντας τῆς δυνάμεως πορεύθητε ἀριθμήσατε τὸν Ισραηλ ἀπὸ Βηρσαβεε καὶ ἕως Δαν καὶ ἐνέγκατε πρός με καὶ γνώσομαι τὸν ἀριθμὸν αὐτῶν 3 καὶ εἶπεν Ιωαβ προσθείη κύριος ἐπὶ τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ ὡς αὐτοὶ ἑκατονταπλασίως καὶ οἱ ὀφθαλμοὶ κυρίου μου τοῦ βασιλέως βλέποντες πάντες τῷ κυρίῳ μου παῖδες ἵνα τί ζητεῖ ὁ κύριός μου τοῦτο ἵνα μὴ γένηται εἰς ἁμαρτίαν τῷ Ισραηλ 4 τὸ δὲ ῥῆμα τοῦ βασιλέως ἐκραταιώθη ἐπὶ τῷ Ιωαβ καὶ ἐξῆλθεν Ιωαβ καὶ διῆλθεν ἐν παντὶ ὁρίῳ Ισραηλ καὶ ἦλθεν εἰς Ιερουσαλημ 5 καὶ ἔδωκεν Ιωαβ τὸν ἀριθμὸν τῆς ἐπισκέψεως τοῦ λαοῦ τῷ Δαυιδ καὶ ἦν πᾶς Ισραηλ χίλιαι χιλιάδες καὶ ἑκατὸν χιλιάδες ἀνδρῶν ἐσπασμένων μάχαιραν καὶ Ιουδας τετρακόσιαι καὶ ὀγδοήκοντα χιλιάδες ἀνδρῶν ἐσπασμένων μάχαιραν 6 καὶ τὸν Λευι καὶ τὸν Βενιαμιν οὐκ ἠρίθμησεν ἐν μέσῳ αὐτῶν ὅτι κατίσχυσεν λόγος τοῦ βασιλέως τὸν Ιωαβ 1 But now Satan disturbed the peace of Israel, by inciting David to make a re-gister of the people. 2 From David the word came to Joab and to the rulers of the people, Go through all the tribes from Dan to Bersabee, make a muster-roll, and let me know the full tale of them. 3 Why, said Joab, my prayer is that the Lord may increase the number of his people a hundredfold. But, my lord king, are we not all at thy service? What need, my lord, to carry out such a design as may bring guilt on the whole of Israel?[1] 4 But the king’s will might not be thwarted; so Joab left his presence to make a review of the whole country, and when he came back to Jerusalem 5 he handed in to David the number of those he had registered; the full muster-roll was one million one hundred thousand that bore arms in Israel, with four hundred and seventy thousand in Juda. 6 Levi and Benjamin were never counted, so loth was Joab to execute the king’s will. 1 Consurrexit autem Satan contra Israël, et concitavit David ut numeraret Israël. 2 Dixitque David ad Joab et ad principes populi: Ite, et numerate Israël a Bersabee usque Dan: et afferte mihi numerum ut sciam. 3 Responditque Joab: Augeat Dominus populum suum centuplum quam sunt: nonne, domine mi rex, omnes servi tui sunt? quare hoc quærit dominus meus, quod in peccatum reputetur Israëli? 4 Sed sermo regis magis prævaluit: egressusque est Joab, et circuivit universum Israël: et reversus est Jerusalem, 5 deditque David numerum eorum quos circuierat: et inventus est omnis numerus Israël, mille millia et centum millia virorum educentium gladium: de Juda autem quadringenta septuaginta millia bellatorum. 6 Nam Levi et Benjamin non numeravit: eo quod Joab invitus exsequeretur regis imperium.
7 καὶ πονηρὸν ἐφάνη ἐναντίον τοῦ θεοῦ περὶ τοῦ πράγματος τούτου καὶ ἐπάταξεν τὸν Ισραηλ 8 καὶ εἶπεν Δαυιδ πρὸς τὸν θεόν ἡμάρτηκα σφόδρα ὅτι ἐποίησα τὸ πρᾶγμα τοῦτο καὶ νῦν περίελε δὴ τὴν κακίαν παιδός σου ὅτι ἐματαιώθην σφόδρα 9 καὶ ἐλάλησεν κύριος πρὸς Γαδ ὁρῶντα Δαυιδ λέγων 10 πορεύου καὶ λάλησον πρὸς Δαυιδ λέγων οὕτως λέγει κύριος τρία αἴρω ἐγὼ ἐπὶ σέ ἔκλεξαι σεαυτῷ ἓν ἐξ αὐτῶν καὶ ποιήσω σοι 11 καὶ ἦλθεν Γαδ πρὸς Δαυιδ καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ οὕτως λέγει κύριος ἔκλεξαι σεαυτῷ 12 ἢ τρία ἔτη λιμοῦ ἢ τρεῖς μῆνας φεύγειν σε ἐκ προσώπου ἐχθρῶν σου καὶ μάχαιραν ἐχθρῶν σου τοῦ ἐξολεθρεῦσαι ἢ τρεῖς ἡμέρας ῥομφαίαν κυρίου καὶ θάνατον ἐν τῇ γῇ καὶ ἄγγελος κυρίου ἐξολεθρεύων ἐν πάσῃ κληρονομίᾳ Ισραηλ καὶ νῦν ἰδὲ τί ἀποκριθῶ τῷ ἀποστείλαντί με λόγον 13 καὶ εἶπεν Δαυιδ πρὸς Γαδ στενά μοι καὶ τὰ τρία σφόδρα ἐμπεσοῦμαι δὴ εἰς χεῖρας κυρίου ὅτι πολλοὶ οἱ οἰκτιρμοὶ αὐτοῦ σφόδρα καὶ εἰς χεῖρας ἀνθρώπων οὐ μὴ ἐμπέσω 14 καὶ ἔδωκεν κύριος θάνατον ἐν Ισραηλ καὶ ἔπεσον ἐξ Ισραηλ ἑβδομήκοντα χιλιάδες ἀνδρῶν 15 καὶ ἀπέστειλεν ὁ θεὸς ἄγγελον εἰς Ιερουσαλημ τοῦ ἐξολεθρεῦσαι αὐτήν καὶ ὡς ἐξωλέθρευσεν εἶδεν κύριος καὶ μετεμελήθη ἐπὶ τῇ κακίᾳ καὶ εἶπεν τῷ ἀγγέλῳ τῷ ἐξολεθρεύοντι ἱκανούσθω σοι ἄνες τὴν χεῖρά σου καὶ ὁ ἄγγελος κυρίου ἑστὼς ἐν τῷ ἅλῳ Ορνα τοῦ Ιεβουσαίου 16 καὶ ἐπῆρεν Δαυιδ τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς αὐτοῦ καὶ εἶδεν τὸν ἄγγελον κυρίου ἑστῶτα ἀνὰ μέσον τῆς γῆς καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ ἡ ῥομφαία αὐτοῦ ἐσπασμένη ἐν τῇ χειρὶ αὐτοῦ ἐκτεταμένη ἐπὶ Ιερουσαλημ καὶ ἔπεσεν Δαυιδ καὶ οἱ πρεσβύτεροι περιβεβλημένοι ἐν σάκκοις ἐπὶ πρόσωπον αὐτῶν 17 καὶ εἶπεν Δαυιδ πρὸς τὸν θεόν οὐκ ἐγὼ εἶπα τοῦ ἀριθμῆσαι ἐν τῷ λαῷ καὶ ἐγώ εἰμι ὁ ἁμαρτών κακοποιῶν ἐκακοποίησα καὶ ταῦτα τὰ πρόβατα τί ἐποίησαν κύριε ὁ θεός γενηθήτω ἡ χείρ σου ἐν ἐμοὶ καὶ ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ τοῦ πατρός μου καὶ μὴ ἐν τῷ λαῷ σου εἰς ἀπώλειαν κύριε 7 But meanwhile, in his displeasure at the command given, the Lord had begun to smite down Israel; 8 whereupon David confessed to the Lord, I have sinned greatly in what I have done; give my sin quittance; I have played a fool’s part. 9 And the word of the Lord came to Gad, that was David’s seer, 10 Go and give David this message from the Lord; Here are three choices I grant thee, to choose thy own punishment. 11 So Gad presented himself before David, bidding him in the Lord’s name make his choice. 12 Wilt thou have three years of famine, he asked, or three months of flight before thy enemies, and yet no escape, or three days in which the Lord’s own sword of pestilence shall pass through the land, his angel dealing death all through the realm of Israel? Think well, and tell me what answer I shall make to him whose message I bear. 13 I am hard pressed on all sides, David told him; but it is better to fall into the hands of the Lord, so rich is he in mercy, than into the hands of men. 14 So the Lord sent a plague on Israel, by which seventy thousand men perished. 15 But when his angel reached Jerusalem, ready to carry out his errand and smite it, the Lord was moved with pity over their great calamity; and he said to the angel that would have smitten them, It is enough, stay thy hand. The angel of the Lord stood close, then, to the threshing-floor of Ornan the Jebusite; 16 and David, looking up, saw him standing there with drawn sword between heaven and earth, with his face towards Jerusalem. At that, both he and all the elders, that went clad in sack-cloth, fell prostrate on the ground. 17 Nay, said David to the Lord, was it not at my command that the muster-roll was taken? The sin is mine, the fault is mine; these poor sheep of mine, what wrong have they done? Against me turn thy hand, O Lord my God, and against my father’s race; let the people be smitten no more. 7 Displicuit autem Deo quod jussum erat: et percussit Israël. 8 Dixitque David ad Deum: Peccavi nimis ut hoc facerem: obsecro, aufer iniquitatem servi tui, quia insipienter egi. 9 Et locutus est Dominus ad Gad videntem Davidis, dicens: 10 Vade, et loquere ad David, et dic ei: Hæc dicit Dominus: Trium tibi optionem do: unum, quod volueris, elige, et faciam tibi. 11 Cumque venisset Gad ad David, dixit ei: Hæc dicit Doinus: Elige, quod volueris: 12 aut tribus annis famem; aut tribus mensibus te fugere hostes tuos, et gladium eorum non posse evadere; aut tribus diebus gladium Domini, et pestilentiam versari in terra, et angelum Domini interficere in universis finibus Israël: nunc igitur vide quid respondeam ei qui misit me. 13 Et dixit David ad Gad: Ex omni parte me angustiæ premunt: sed melius mihi est ut incidam in manus Domini, quia multæ sunt miserationes ejus, quam in manus hominum. 14 Misit ergo Dominus pestilentiam in Israël: et ceciderunt de Israël septuaginta millia virorum. 15 Misit quoque angelum in Jerusalem ut percuteret eam: cumque percuteretur, vidit Dominus, et misertus est super magnitudine mali: et imperavit angelo qui percutiebat: Sufficit, jam cesset manus tua. Porro angelus Domini stabat juxta aream Ornan Jebusæi. 16 Levansque David oculos suos, vidit angelum Domini stantem inter cælum et terram, et evaginatum gladium in manu ejus, et versum contra Jerusalem: et ceciderunt tam ipse quam majores natu, vestiti ciliciis, proni in terram. 17 Dixitque David ad Deum: Nonne ego sum, qui jussi ut numeraretur populus? ego, qui peccavi? ego, qui malum feci? iste grex, quid commeruit? Domine Deus meus, vertatur, obsecro, manus tua in me, et in domum patris mei: populus autem tuus non percutiatur.
18 καὶ ἄγγελος κυρίου εἶπεν τῷ Γαδ τοῦ εἰπεῖν πρὸς Δαυιδ ἵνα ἀναβῇ τοῦ στῆσαι θυσιαστήριον τῷ κυρίῳ ἐν ἅλῳ Ορνα τοῦ Ιεβουσαίου 19 καὶ ἀνέβη Δαυιδ κατὰ τὸν λόγον Γαδ ὃν ἐλάλησεν ἐν ὀνόματι κυρίου 20 καὶ ἐπέστρεψεν Ορνα καὶ εἶδεν τὸν βασιλέα καὶ τέσσαρες υἱοὶ αὐτοῦ με{T'} αὐτοῦ μεθαχαβιν καὶ Ορνα ἦν ἀλοῶν πυρούς 21 καὶ ἦλθεν Δαυιδ πρὸς Ορναν καὶ Ορνα ἐξῆλθεν ἐκ τῆς ἅλω καὶ προσεκύνησεν τῷ Δαυιδ τῷ προσώπῳ ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν 22 καὶ εἶπεν Δαυιδ πρὸς Ορνα δός μοι τὸν τόπον σου τῆς ἅλω καὶ οἰκοδομήσω ἐ{P'} αὐτῷ θυσιαστήριον τῷ κυρίῳ ἐν ἀργυρίῳ ἀξίῳ δός μοι αὐτόν καὶ παύσεται ἡ πληγὴ ἐκ τοῦ λαοῦ 23 καὶ εἶπεν Ορνα πρὸς Δαυιδ λαβὲ σεαυτῷ καὶ ποιησάτω ὁ κύριός μου ὁ βασιλεὺς τὸ ἀγαθὸν ἐναντίον αὐτοῦ ἰδὲ δέδωκα τοὺς μόσχους εἰς ὁλοκαύτωσιν καὶ τὸ ἄροτρον καὶ τὰς ἁμάξας εἰς ξύλα καὶ τὸν σῖτον εἰς θυσίαν τὰ πάντα δέδωκα 24 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Δαυιδ τῷ Ορνα οὐχί ὅτι ἀγοράζων ἀγοράζω ἐν ἀργυρίῳ ἀξίῳ ὅτι οὐ μὴ λάβω ἅ ἐστίν σοι κυρίῳ τοῦ ἀνενέγκαι ὁλοκαύτωσιν δωρεὰν κυρίῳ 25 καὶ ἔδωκεν Δαυιδ τῷ Ορνα ἐν τῷ τόπῳ αὐτοῦ σίκλους χρυσίου ὁλκῆς ἑξακοσίους 26 καὶ ᾠκοδόμησεν Δαυιδ ἐκεῖ θυσιαστήριον κυρίῳ καὶ ἀνήνεγκεν ὁλοκαυτώματα καὶ σωτηρίου καὶ ἐβόησεν πρὸς κύριον καὶ ἐπήκουσεν αὐτῷ ἐν πυρὶ ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ ἐπὶ τὸ θυσιαστήριον τῆς ὁλοκαυτώσεως καὶ κατανάλωσεν τὴν ὁλοκαύτωσιν 27 καὶ εἶπεν κύριος πρὸς τὸν ἄγγελον καὶ κατέθηκεν τὴν ῥομφαίαν εἰς τὸν κολεόν 18 Then, at the bidding of the Lord’s angel, Gad would have David go up to Ornan’s threshing-floor and build an altar there to the Lord his God; 19 and Gad’s word, that was the Lord’s word, the king made haste to obey. 20 Ornan and his four sons, that were threshing wheat there, had hidden themselves upon sight of the angel standing above them; 21 but now, as he saw David approaching, Ornan went to meet him, and did reverence, bowing down to earth. 22 Give me, David said, this site of thy threshing-floor, to build an altar to the Lord here; ask what price thou wilt, only let the people be plagued no more. 23 Why, said Ornan, let the king’s grace take all he needs and do what he will with it; here are oxen for the sacrifice, here is the sled for kindling-wood, here is corn for the offering; most readily I make the gift of them all. 24 Nay, said the king, I must pay thee their price in money; should I accept them from thee, and offer the Lord a sacrifice which costs me nothing? 25 So David paid Ornan six hundred golden sicles, duly weighed out, for the price of his land; 26 and there he built an altar to the Lord, and brought burnt-sacrifice and welcome-offering. Fire came down from heaven upon his altar of burnt-sacrifice, to prove the divine acceptance of his plea; 27 and with that, at the Lord’s bidding, the angel put his sword back in its sheath. 18 Angelus autem Domini præcepit Gad ut diceret Davidi ut ascenderet, exstrueretque altare Domino Deo in area Ornan Jebusæi. 19 Ascendit ergo David juxta sermonem Gad, quem locutus ei fuerat ex nomine Domini. 20 Porro Ornan cum suspexisset et vidisset angelum, quatuorque filii ejus cum eo, absconderunt se: nam eo tempore terebat in area triticum. 21 Igitur cum veniret David ad Ornan, conspexit eum Ornan, et processit ei obviam de area, et adoravit eum pronus in terram. 22 Dixitque ei David: Da mihi locum areæ tuæ, ut ædificem in ea altare Domino: ita ut quantum valet argenti accipias, et cesset plaga a populo. 23 Dixit autem Ornan ad David: Tolle, et faciat dominus meus rex quodcumque ei placet: sed et boves do in holocaustum, et tribulas in ligna, et triticum in sacrificium: omnia libens præbebo. 24 Dixitque ei rex David: Nequaquam ita fiet, sed argentum dabo quantum valet: neque enim tibi auferre debeo, et sic offerre Domino holocausta gratuita. 25 Dedit ergo David Ornan pro loco siclos auri justissimi ponderis sexcentos. 26 Et ædificavit ibi altare Domino, obtulitque holocausta et pacifica, et invocavit Dominum; et exaudivit eum in igne de cælo super altare holocausti. 27 Præcepitque Dominus angelo, et convertit gladium suum in vaginam.
28 ἐν τῷ καιρῷ ἐκείνῳ ἐν τῷ ἰδεῖν τὸν Δαυιδ ὅτι ἐπήκουσεν αὐτῷ κύριος ἐν τῷ ἅλῳ Ορνα τοῦ Ιεβουσαίου καὶ ἐθυσίασεν ἐκεῖ 29 καὶ σκηνὴ κυρίου ἣν ἐποίησεν Μωυσῆς ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ καὶ θυσιαστήριον τῶν ὁλοκαυτωμάτων ἐν τῷ καιρῷ ἐκείνῳ ἐν Βαμα ἐν Γαβαων 30 καὶ οὐκ ἠδύνατο Δαυιδ τοῦ πορευθῆναι ἔμπροσθεν αὐτοῦ τοῦ ζητῆσαι τὸν θεόν ὅτι κατέσπευσεν ἀπὸ προσώπου τῆς ῥομφαίας ἀγγέλου κυρίου 28 So David, finding that the Lord had granted his prayer upon Ornan’s threshing-floor, offered more victims there. 29 As for the tabernacle which Moses made for the Lord in the wilderness, and its altar of burnt-sacrifice, they were still, at this time, in the hill-sanctuary at Gabaon; 30 and to that altar David might not repair, in his need of the Lord’s help, so adread was he of the sword which the angel of the Lord carried.[2] 28 Protinus ergo David, videns quod exaudisset eum Dominus in area Ornan Jebusæi, immolavit ibi victimas. 29 Tabernaculum autem Domini, quod fecerat Moyses in deserto, et altare holocaustorum, ea tempestate erat in excelso Gabaon. 30 Et non prævaluit David ire ad altare ut ibi obsecraret Deum: nimio enim fuerat in timore perterritus, videns gladium angeli Domini.
