Context Readings

David And The Census Of The People

11 And in the morning when David had risen, the word of the LORD came unto the prophet Gad, David's seer, saying, 12 Go and say unto David, Thus hath the LORD said, I offer thee three things: choose one of them, which I will do unto thee. 13 So Gad came to David and told him and said unto him, Shall seven years of famine come unto thee in thy land? Or wilt thou flee three months before thy enemies while they pursue thee? Or shall there be three days' pestilence in thy land? Now advise, and see what answer I shall return to him that sent me.
