  • 18 Now the angel of the LORD had commanded Gad to say to David that David should go up and raise an altar to the LORD on the threshing floor of Ornan the Jebusite.
    19 So David went up at Gad's word, which he had spoken in the name of the LORD.
    20 Now Ornan was threshing wheat. He turned and saw the angel, and his four sons who were with him hid themselves.
    21 As David came to Ornan, Ornan looked and saw David and went out from the threshing floor and paid homage to David with his face to the ground.
    22 And David said to Ornan, "Give me the site of the threshing floor that I may build on it an altar to the LORD--give it to me at its full price--that the plague may be averted from the people."
    23 Then Ornan said to David, "Take it, and let my lord the king do what seems good to him. See, I give the oxen for burnt offerings and the threshing sledges for the wood and the wheat for a grain offering; I give it all."
    24 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."
    25 So David paid Ornan 600 shekels of gold by weight for the site.
    26 And David built there an altar to the LORD and presented burnt offerings and peace offerings and called on the LORD, and the LORD answered him with fire from heaven upon the altar of burnt offering.
    27 Then the LORD commanded the angel, and he put his sword back into its sheath.
    28 At that time, when David saw that the LORD had answered him at the threshing floor of Ornan the Jebusite, he sacrificed there.
    29 For the tabernacle of the LORD, which Moses had made in the wilderness, and the altar of burnt offering were at that time in the high place at Gibeon,
    30 but David could not go before it to inquire of God, for he was afraid of the sword of the angel of the LORD.

    2019-05-22   David, who once proudly declared he would build God a lavish Temple, now constructs a small altar and humbly repents.

이해하기(Understanding)
The prophet Gad spoke God’s commands. Gad instructed David to go to the place where God turned His heart from judgment, Ornan’s threshing floor, and to build an altar of praise there. David, who pridefully called for a census, now obeyed God’s Words as a humble servant (vv. 18-19). Though Ornan told David that he could have the land and burnt offerings without any cost, David pays him 600 shekels. Unlike performing a census to receive more taxes from the people, David now respects even the smallest possessions of the people. As David built the altar and gave the offering, God brought about fire on the altar as a sign (Lev. 9:24; 2 Chr. 7:1) that He has received the worship. David, having experienced the harsh punishment, was fearful of worshipping at the Tent of Meeting in Gibeon. Instead, he began to worship in the place of forgiveness: the altar at Ornan’s threshing floor (vv. 20-30).



적용하기(Applying)
Who is God?
God offers His hand of grace to sinners first. He forgave David, who was afraid of worshiping at the tent in Gibeon for fear of punishment, by meeting him at the altar on the threshing floor. Where is the ‘threshing floor’ at where God is waiting for you?

What lesson is God teaching you?
The threshing floor of Ornan becomes the foundation of Solomon’s temple. This is the place where disaster and curses stopped, where restoration and peace began, and where answer to prayer and forgiveness of sin occurred. In Jesus, the true temple, anywhere a believer kneels in prayer is God’s house.


기도하기(Praying)
Help me to pray and read the Word anywhere to reap the blessings of the Holy place.
