ARAUNAH ( 2 Samuel 24:18 ; called in 1 Chronicles 21:15 , 2 Chronicles 31:1-21 Ornan ). A Jebusite who owned a threshing-floor on Mount Moriah. This spot was indicated by the prophet Gad as the place where an altar should he erected to J″ [Note: Jahweh.] , because the plague, which followed David’s numbering of the people, had been stayed. David bought the threshing-floor and oxen for 50 shekels of silver. The price paid is given in 1 Chronicles 21:15 as 600 shekels of gold a characteristic deviation from the earlier account.
