Cf. (See Scofield "2 Samuel 24:9") .

21:12  Either three years' famine; or three months to be destroyed before thy foes, while that the sword of thine enemies overtaketh thee; or else three days the sword of the LORD, even the pestilence, in the land, and the angel of the LORD destroying throughout all the coasts of Israel. Now therefore advise thyself what word I shall bring again to him that sent me.

six hundred shekels of gold

A discrepancy has been imagined in the two accounts, 2 Samuel 24:24, ; 1 Chronicles 21:25 ; 2 Samuel 24:24 records the price of the threshingfloor (heb. goren); 1 Chronicles 21:25 of the place (Heb. magom, lit. "home," 1 Samuel 2:20 ) same word or area on which afterward the great temple, with its spacious courts was built. 2 Chronicles 3:1 .

David gave fifty shekels of sliver for the "goren"; six hundred shekels of gold for the "magom."

21:27  And the LORD commanded the angel; and he put up his sword again into the sheath thereof.
