Second Samuel 24:24

This website has been moved to: https://debatemap.live

2 Samuel 24:24: Then the king said to Araunah, “No, but I will surely buy it from you for a price; nor will I offer burnt offerings to the Lord my God with that which costs me nothing.” So David bought the threshing floor and the oxen for fifty shekels of silver.

1 Chronicles 21:24-25: Then King David said to Ornan, “No, but I will surely buy it for the full price, for I will not take what is yours for the Lord, nor offer burnt offerings with that which costs me nothing.” So David gave Ornan six hundred shekels of gold by weight for the place.

Second Samuel says that David bought the threshing floor from Araunah for 50 shekels of silver, but First Chronicles says that David bought the threshing floor from Ornan for 600 shekels of gold.

Contradictions:
1. David bought it from Araunah != David bought it from Ornan.
2. David bought it with silver != David bought it with gold.
3. David bought it for 50 shekels != David bought it for 600 shekels.
