There are certain things expected of a king kjv@2Samuel:23:3. We see the many valiant men of the king that would do anything for him even risk their own blood for a sip of water from an occupied well. The king therefore has such a greater responsibility and therefore has so much greater consequences. These things may seem strange to us for we are not kings. It may seem improbable to us for we are not of that age nor of that election. We tend to critic the oddity of the consequence rather than horridness of the sin was that God was addressing amongst the people. David's sin was ordering the census, the people's sin we must assume is idolatry.
