1 Chronicles 21:3

English Standard Version

New International Version

New Int. Readers Version

3 Joab replied, “May the Lord multiply his troops 100 times. King David, you are my master. Aren't all of the men under your control? Why would you want me to count them? Do you want to make Israel guilty?”

King James Version

3 And Joab answered, The LORD make his people an hundred times so many more as they be : but, my lord the king, are they not all my lord' servants? why then doth my lord require this thing? why will he be a cause of trespass to Israel?
