2WHY DID DAVID NUMBER THE ISRAELITES? 2 SAMUEL 24:11 The anger of the LORD was aroused against Israel, and He moved David against them to say, Go, number Israel and Judah.
3WHO DID DAVID TELL TO NUMBER THEM? 2 SAMUEL 24:22 The king said to Joab the commander of the army who was with him, Go throughout all the tribes of Israel, from Dan to Beersheba, and count the people, that I may know the number of the people.
4WHAT DID JOAB SAY TO KING DAVID? 2 SAMUEL 24:33 Joab said to the king, May the LORD your God add to the people a hundred times more than there are, and may the eyes of my lord the king see it. But why does my lord the king desire this thing?
5DID JOAB DO AS DAVID COMMANDED? 2 SAMUEL 24:4-74 Nevertheless the king's word prevailed against Joab and against the captains of the army. Joab and the captains of the army went out from the presence of the king to count the people of Israel.5 They crossed over the Jordan and camped in Aroer, on the right side of the town which is in the midst of the ravine of Gad, and toward Jazer.6 They came to Gilead and to the land of Tahtim Hodshi; they came to Dan Jaan and around to Sidon;7 They came to the stronghold of Tyre and to all the cities of the Hivites and the Canaanites. Then they went out to South Judah as far as Beersheba.

7HOW DID DAVID FEEL ABOUT THE NUMBERING? WHAT DID DAVID SAY TO THE LORD?2 SAMUEL 24:1010 David's heart condemned him after he had numbered the people. David said to the LORD, I have sinned greatly in what I have done. Now, I pray, LORD, take away the iniquity of Your servant, for I have done very foolishly.
8WHAT CHOICES DID THE LORD GIVE DAVID? 2 SAMUEL 24:11-1311 When David arose in the morning, the word of the LORD came to the prophet Gad, David's seer, saying,12 Go, tell David, Thus says the LORD: I offer you three things. Choose one of them for yourself, that I may do it to you.13 Gad came to David and told him. He said to him, Shall seven years of famine come to you in your land? Or you shall flee three months before your enemies, while they pursue you? Or shall there be three days' plague in your land? Consider and see what answer I should take back to Him who sent me.
9WHAT CHOICE DID DAVID MAKE? WHY? 2 SAMUEL 24:1414 David said, I am in great distress. Please let us fall into the hand of the LORD, for His mercies are great; BUT do not let me fall into the hand of man.

12WHAT DID DAVID SAY TO THE LORD? 2 SAMUEL 24:1717 David spoke to the LORD when he saw the angel who was striking the people, and said, Surely I have sinned. I have done wickedly. BUT these sheep, what have they done? Let Your hand, I pray, be against me and against my father's house.
13WHAT DID GAD TELL DAVID TO DO? 2 SAMUEL 24:18-1918 Gad came that day to David and said to him, Go up and erect an altar to the LORD on the threshing floor of Araunah the Jebusite.19 So David, according to the word of Gad, went up as the LORD commanded.
14HOW DID ARAUNAH RECEIVE DAVID? 2 SAMUEL 24:20-2120 Araunah looked, and saw the king and his servants coming toward him. Araunah went out and bowed before the king with his face to the ground.WHAT DID DAVID SAY TO ARAUNAH?21 Araunah said, Why has my lord the king come to his servant? David said, To buy the threshing floor from you, to build an altar to the LORD, that the plague may be withdrawn from the people.
15WHAT DID ARAUNAH SAY TO DAVID? 2 SAMUEL 24:22-2322 Araunah said to David, Let my lord the king take and offer up whatever seems good to him. Look, here are oxen for burnt sacrifice, and threshing implements and the yokes of the oxen for wood.23 All these, O king, Araunah has given to the king. Araunah said to the king, May the LORD your God accept you.
16HOW DID DAVID RESPOND TO ARAUNAH? 2 SAMUEL 24:2424 The king said to Araunah, No, but I will surely buy it from you for a price. Nor will I offer burnt offerings to the LORD my God with that which costs me nothing. So David bought the threshing floor and the oxen for fifty shekels of silver.
