Treasury of Scripture

Then David said to Ornan, Grant me the place of this threshing floor, that I may build an altar therein to the LORD: you shall grant it me for the full price: that the plague may be stayed from the people.

Grant [heb[ Give

1 Kings 21:2
And Ahab spake unto Naboth, saying, Give me thy vineyard, that I may have it for a garden of herbs, because it is near unto my house: and I will give thee for it a better vineyard than it; or, if it seem good to thee, I will give thee the worth of it in money.

thou shalt grant

2 Samuel 24:21
And Araunah said, Wherefore is my lord the king come to his servant? And David said, To buy the threshingfloor of thee, to build an altar unto the LORD, that the plague may be stayed from the people.

that the plague

Numbers 16:48
And he stood between the dead and the living; and the plague was stayed.

Numbers 25:8
And he went after the man of Israel into the tent, and thrust both of them through, the man of Israel, and the woman through her belly. So the plague was stayed from the children of Israel.









(22) Then (and) David said to Oman, Grant me the place of this threshingfloor, that I may build.--Literally, Pray give me the place of the threshingfloor. Samuel, "And Araunah said Why is my lord the king come to his servant? And David said, To purchase from thee the threshingfloor, to build," &c.

Grant it me for the full price.--Literally, At a full price give it me. These words are not in Samuel. (Comp. Genesis 23:9--Abraham's purchase of the Cave of Machpelah.) The recollection of that narrative may have caused the modification of the present. The last clause is word for word as in Samuel.

Verse 22. - The place of this threshing-floor; i.e. the place on which the threshing-floor was made. It was the level summit of the middle elevated ground of the eastern ridge on which Jerusalem was situate (1 Chronicles 11:4-7).
