What punishment would you have selected? The famine, the war or the plague? I might have selected famine in the hopes that I could have lessened the death toll by rationing and getting grain from faraway places that did not have famine (Egypt). What an awesome sight David was allowed to see when the angel of death was standing over Jerusalem with sword in hand ready to strike Jerusalem. I’m not always aware of the supernatural world around me that I can’t see. Just because I can’t see it does not mean it’s not there!
