Dear Karl,

>Did any other king make a census of Israel? All I remember
>is that they numbered only those who turned out for battle,
>not the whole people.

HH: The text does not say. The numbers are smaller elsewhere than for 
David's numbering, so you may be right. David was doing a military 
numbering of all the fighting men available.

				Yours,
