2 Samuel 24:12-14 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

12 “Go and tell David, ‘This is what the Lord says: There are three ways you can be punished. Choose the one you want.’”

13 So Gad went to David and said to him, “Choose one of these three: seven[a] years of famine for you and your country, being chased by your enemies for three months, or three days of disease in your country. Think about it, and decide which one you want. I must give your answer to the one who sent me.”

14 David said to Gad, “This is a terrible situation to be in. But it would be better to be punished by the Lord than by anyone else, because he is very merciful.”


  1. 2 Samuel 24:13 seven 1 Chron. 21:12 and the ancient Greek version have “three.”
