2 Samuel 24:15-17 New English Translation (NET Bible)

15 So the Lord sent a plague through Israel from the morning until the completion of the appointed time, and 70,000 people died from Dan to Beer Sheba. 16 When the angel[a] extended his hand to destroy Jerusalem, the Lord relented from his judgment.[b] He told the angel who was killing the people, “That’s enough! Stop now!”[c] (Now the angel of the Lord was near the threshing floor of Araunah the Jebusite.)

17 When he saw the angel who was destroying the people, David said to the Lord, “Look, it is I who have sinned and done this evil thing! As for these sheep—what have they done? Attack me and my family.”[d]
