12 Go, and say unto David, Thus saith the Lord, I offer thee three things, choose thee which of them I shall do unto thee.
13 So Gad came to David, and showed him, and said unto him, Wilt thou that [a]seven years famine come upon thee in thy land, or wilt thou flee three months before thine enemies, they following thee, or that there be three days pestilence in my land? now advise thee, and see, what answer I shall give to him that sent me.
14 ¶ And David said unto Gad, I am in a wonderful strait: let us fall now into the hand of the Lord, (for his mercies are great) and let me not fall into the hand of man.
2 Samuel 24:13For three years of famine were past for the Gibeonites’ matter: this was the fourth year to the which should have been added other three years more, 1 Chron. 21:12.
