Question 30 - Truly, how much was the price of purchase? To whom he said?

2 Samuel 24:24 NKJV - "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 21:25 NKJV - "So David gave Ornan six hundred shekels of gold by weight for the place."

                Even though the Lord God is one, there are plenty of temples for Him in every village and cities in these days. Thus, it is possible that King David purchased different places from different masters to build altars for the Lord Jehovah and to give sacrifice to Him by consecrating it.
