1st Chronicles 27:24Wrench

ZeruYah's son [General] Joab {JAH-Dad} starts to number [Israel's population].
But he stops, because [YAH drops] fire-rage against Israel [to discourage future human-enumeration].
So [the royal scribes refuse to] log the [forbidden] census into the chronicles of king David.
