I must say that Bible reading is not an easy task where you use just your feelings to absorb the meaning of the texts. Reading the Bible is studying the Bible, it requires some technical aspects of it. Therefore, I am compelled to also journal the texts which I find needed further research to help me fully understand the passages and stay true to the correct way of interpreting the texts.
Instead of giving commentaries, I will just list down the site(s) I read as my references. Since I consider this blog as journal, I might want to read these entries again in the future and probably will want to recall where I read about the explanations to my queries.
My question about this text is why would David had angered God in doing census?
- Why was God so angry at David for taking the census?
- Why did God punish King David
- for taking a census?
- David’s Census and the Plague
- Who Authorized David’s Census? God or Satan?
