 2 Samuel 24:7-20

7 They went to the strong, walled city of Tyre and to all the cities of the Hivites and Canaanites. Finally, they went to southern Judah, to Beersheba. 

8 After nine months and twenty days, they had gone through all the land. Then they came back to Jerusalem. 

9 Joab gave the list of the people to the king. There were eight hundred thousand men in Israel who could use the sword and five hundred thousand men in Judah.

10 David felt ashamed after he had counted the people. He said to the Lord, “I have sinned greatly by what I have done. Lord, I beg you to forgive me, your servant, because I have been very foolish.” 

11When David got up in the morning, the Lord spoke his word to Gad, who was a prophet and David’s seer.

12 The Lord told Gad, “Go and tell David, ‘This is what the Lord says: I offer you three choices. Choose one of them and I will do it to you.'” 

13 So Gad went to David and said to him, “Should three years of hunger come to you and your land? Or should your enemies chase you for three months? Or should there be three days of disease in your land? Think about it. Then decide which of these things I should tell the Lord who sent me.” 

14 David said to Gad, “I am in great trouble. Let the Lord punish us, because the Lord is very merciful. Don’t let my punishment come from human beings!” 

15 So the Lord sent a terrible disease on Israel. It began in the morning and continued until the chosen time to stop. From Dan to Beersheba seventy thousand people died. 

16 When the angel raised his arm toward Jerusalem to destroy it, the Lord felt very sorry about the terrible things that had happened. He said to the angel who was destroying the people, “That is enough! Put down your arm!” The angel of the Lord was then by the threshing floor of Araunah the Jebusite. 

17 When David saw the angel that killed the people, he said to the Lord, “I am the one who sinned and did wrong. These people only followed me like sheep. They did nothing wrong. Please punish me and my family.” 

18 That day Gad came to David and said, “Go and build an altar to the Lord on the threshing floor of Araunah the Jebusite.” 

19 So David did what Gad told him to do, just as the Lord commanded. 

20 Araunah looked and saw the king and his servants coming to him.

Genesis 35:7
There Jacob built an altar, and he called that place El-bethel, because it was there that God had revealed Himself to him as he fled from his brother.

And this stone, which I have set for a pillar, shall be God’s house: and of all that thou shalt give me I will surely give a return back unto thee.

Jacob’s Ladder

16When Jacob woke up, he thought, “Surely the LORD is in this place, and I was unaware of it.” 

17And he was afraid and said,“How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God; this is the gate of heaven!”

“My belief is that, morally, God and Satan are vaguely on the same page.

According to the common understanding of Satan’s origins, ‘holiness’ is, metaphorically, frozen stiff in his veins: and at that a corrupted formula – i.e. legalism.

The vital difference is that God is willing to offer grace for our sins; he delights in grace.

God is the one and only holy and just punisher of sin, yes, but that is partly so because punishment for the sake of punishment is not something he loves.

Whereas Satan, as the accuser, and as it is written, actually seeks God’s permission to punish; he, being a seasoned legalist, delights in finding wrongs and will defy his own morality just to expose immorality.

This is why both the anti-religious soul and the violently religious soul are, whether consciously or unconsciously, and sadly enough, glorifying their biggest hater:

Satan is not only a lawless lover of punishing lawlessness, but also the sharpest theologian of us all. He loves wickedness, but only because he loves punishing wickedness.”
