Hebrew: ארונה or אֲרַוְנָה —transliteration: Araunah or Aravnah
Araunah offered it to David as a free gift (donation), together with the oxen and the threshing equipment; but the king insisted on purchasing it at its full price (2 Samuel 24:24; 1 Chronicles 21:24-25), for, according to the law of sacrifices, he could not offer to God what cost him nothing.
The price was either 50 shekels of silver (2 Samuel 24:24) or 600 shekels of gold (1 Chronicles 21:25), or possibly David gave him both—as he bought both the threshing floor with equipment and oxen, and the surrounding land.
