Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Samuel 24:17

_ _ David ... said — or, “had said,”

_ _ I have sinned ... but these sheep, what have they done? — The guilt of numbering the people lay exclusively with David. But in the body politic as well as natural, when the head suffers, all the members suffer along with it; and, besides, although David’s sin was the immediate cause, the great increase of national offenses at this time had (2 Samuel 24:1) kindled the anger of the Lord.

2 Samuel 24:17

And David spake unto the LORD when he saw the angel that smote the people, and said, Lo, I have sinned, and I have done wickedly: but these sheep, what have they (k) done? let thine hand, I pray thee, be against me, and against my father's house.

(k) David did not see the just cause why God plagued the people, and therefore he offers himself for God's correction as the only cause of this evil.
