 Araunah
    agile; also called Ornan 1 Chr. 21:15, a Jebusite who dwelt in
    Jerusalem before it was taken by the Israelites. The destroying
    angel, sent to punish David for his vanity in taking a census of
    the people, was stayed in his work of destruction near a
    threshing-floor belonging to Araunah which was situated on Mount
    Moriah. Araunah offered it to David as a free gift, together
    with the oxen and the threshing instruments; but the king
    insisted on purchasing it at its full price (2 Sam. 24:24; 1
    Chr. 21:24, 25), for, according to the law of sacrifices, he
    could not offer to God what cost him nothing. On the same place
    Solomon afterwards erected the temple (2 Sam. 24:16; 2 Chr.
    3:1). (See ALTAR.)
