4.God sent his prophet to threaten David with how many years of famine?
(a) Seven (2 Samuel 24:13)
samauel chapter 24 verse 13 says in king james version
."13So Gad came to David, and told him, and said unto him, Shall seven years of famine come unto thee in thy land? or wilt thou flee three months before thine enemies, while they pursue thee? or that there be three days' pestilence in thy land? now advise, and see what answer I shall return to him that sent me (this in the king james version)
samuel chapter 24 verse 13 says in the international version
in the new international version there is no contradition.it reads as follows"13 So Gad went to David and said to him, "Shall there come upon you three years of famine in your land? Or three months of fleeing from your enemies while they pursue you? Or three days of plague in your land? Now then, think it over and decide how I should answer the one who sent me."
so now i have shown from version to version..contradiction.
(b) Three (I Chronicles 21:12) king james version
first chronicles chapter 21 verse 12 in the king james version says as follows
12Either three years' famine; or three months to be destroyed before thy foes, while that the sword of thine enemies overtaketh thee; or else three days the sword of the LORD, even the pestilence, in the land, and the angel of the LORD destroying throughout all the coasts of Israel. Now therefore advise thyself what word I shall bring again to him that sent me.
1 Chronicles 21:12 (New International Version) 12 three years of famine, three months of being swept away before your enemies, with their swords overtaking you, or three days of the sword of the LORD -days of plague in the land, with the angel of the LORD ravaging every part of Israel.' Now then, decide how I should answer the one who sent me."
