Read 1 Chronicles 21:24 Using Other Translations
And king David said to Ornan, Nay; but I will verily buy it for the full price: for I will not take that which is thine for the LORD, nor offer burnt offerings without cost.
But King David said to Ornan, "No, but I will buy them for the full price. I will not take for the LORD what is yours, nor offer burnt offerings that cost me nothing."
But King David replied to Araunah, “No, I insist on buying it for the full price. I will not take what is yours and give it to the LORD . I will not present burnt offerings that have cost me nothing!”
