The Lord's Judgment of David's Sin

10 But kDavid's heart struck him after he had numbered the people. And David said to the Lord, lI have sinned greatly in what I have done. But now, O Lord, please take away the iniquity of your servant, for I have done mvery foolishly.


And David said to God, I have sinned greatly in that I have done this thing. But now, please jtake away the iniquity of your servant, for I have acted very foolishly.


fFor the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to give strong support to those gwhose heart is blameless1 toward him. hYou have done foolishly in this, for from now on iyou will have wars.
