Who incited David to count the fighting men of Israel? (2 Samuel 24:1 vs 1 Chronicles 21:1)

This is a very common argument that skeptics try to lob at Christians, but it’s really just another example of how the most popular Bible versions contain poor translations choices.

You can even touch the rocks and feel how easy they crumble away. Take time to watch the water crashing around the base of the limestone stacks
