    Stayed - Detained; held.

    Clarke's Commentary on 2 Samuel 24:25

    David - offered burnt-offerings - And that these sacrifices were pleasing to the Lord, is evident from a circumstance marked in the parallel place, 1 Chronicles 21:26 : David called upon the Lord, and he answered him from heaven by fire upon the altar of burnt-offering.

    The plague was stalled - Jerusalem did not share in the common calamity, seventy thousand being the whole that were slain throughout the land.

    This book is unfinished, and requires 1 Chronicles 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, and 29, to complete it. A few things relative to this history may be found in the beginning of the following book; but the information in 1 Chronicles much more extensive and satisfactory.
