25 So David gave Araunah six hundred pieces of gold* in payment for the threshing floor.1
26 David built an altar there to the LORD and sacrificed burnt offerings and peace offerings. And when David prayed, the LORD answered him by sending fire from heaven to burn up the offering on the altar.
27 Then the LORD spoke to the angel, who put the sword back into its sheath.
28 When David saw that the LORD had answered his prayer, he offered sacrifices there at Araunah's threshing floor.
29 At that time, the Tabernacle of the LORD and the altar that Moses made in the wilderness were located at the hill of Gibeon.
30 But David was not able to go there to inquire of God, because he was terrified by the drawn sword of the angel of the LORD.
