The price of Araunah's threshing floor, where David offered his sacrifices, was only fifty shekels of silver. However, David (possibly later) paid Araunah (also called Ornan) "six hundred shekels of gold" for his "place" (1 Chronicles 21:25). This "place" evidently included all the grounds on which the magnificent temple of Solomon would eventually be built.
