June 13, II Samuel 24:10-17
We do no know the extent of David's sin, we can surmise that it had something to do with numbering his men. Whatever it was I believe it was something that caused the people to sin also, hence the judgments from God are against all of Israel. In David's choices he has two that would protect himself and family, a famine would not effect him as king, nor would a war as he could remain at home, but a pestilence would hit everyone from the lowest servant to the king and as David accepted his own guilt he chose the last. We could try to second guess God, finding fault in the deaths of 70,000 men but we don't know all of the circumstances. And as David witnesses the people suffering he reaches a deeper repentance asking God to stop the judgment on the sheep, which could be either livestock or David's people as he was a shepherd, and to bring the judgment on himself. That should be the attitude of any ruler, or any person for that matter. This is my sin and the people should not suffer for it.
