Judgment for David's Sin
8Then David said to God, “I have sinned greatly because I have done this thing. Now I beg You to take away the iniquity of Your servant, for I have acted very foolishly.” 9And the LORD instructed Gad, David’s seer, 10“Go and tell David that this is what the LORD says: ‘I am offering you three options. Choose one of them, and I will carry it out against you.’ ”…

1 Chronicles 29:29

1 Samuel 9:9

2 Samuel 24:11
For when David was up in the morning, the word of the LORD came unto the prophet Gad, David's seer, saying,









(9) And the Lord (Jehovah) spake unto Gad.--Samuel, "And David arose in the morning. Now a word of Jehovah had come to Gad the prophet, a seer of David, saying--" This appears to be more original than our text.

David's seer.--Better, a seer of David's, for the same title is applied to Heman (1Chronicles 25:5). For Gad, see 1Samuel 22:5, and 1Chronicles 29:29. From the latter passage it has been inferred that it was Gad who wrote the original record of the census.

Verse 9. - Gad, David's seer. The parallel place says, "The Prophet Gad (הֲנָּבִיא), David's seer" (2 Samuel 24:11). The Hebrew word here used in both passages for "seer," is חֹזֶה, in place of the word of higher import, הָרֹאֶה, the use of which is confined to Samuel, Hanani, and to the person spoken of in Isaiah 30:10. In this last passage our Authorized Version translates "prophet" while in 1 Chronicles 29:29 our Authorized Version translates both Hebrew names in the very same verse by the one English word "seer." Gad was, perhaps, a pupil of David (2 Samuel 22:8), and was the successor of Samuel (1 Chronicles 9:22) in this office.
