So Gad [runs] to [king] David.
[Gad] asks him, “[Do you want]:
  • 7 years of famine to [starve] you and you land?
  • Or would you [rather] flee for 3 months before your enemies, while they chase you?
  • Or [do you choose] 3 days [of] plague [to ravage] your land?
  • Now consider [these 3 punishments].
    Decide what answer I'll relay to [YAH] who sent me [to you].”
