The parallel passage (2 Samuel 24:24) says that David paid Ornan fifty shekels of silver for his threshing floor. However, this amount was only for David's sacrifices. Evidently, the six hundred shekels was agreed upon later by David to purchase the site used for the temple (2 Chronicles 3:1). The site, on Mount Moriah, was also significant as the place where Abraham had been asked to offer his son Isaac (Genesis 22:2).
