"Who caused David to number Israel?" (Alleged Contradiction #E2389)
And again the anger of the LORD was kindled against Israel, and he moved David against them to say, Go, number Israel and Judah.
II Samuel 24:1
And Satan stood up against Israel, and provoked David to number Israel.
I Chronicles 21:1
Satan “provoked” David to number Israel, and when God saw that it was in David’s heart to do so, His anger was kindled. He hardened David’s heart to perform what He know David already wanted to do (similar to what He did to Pharaoh in Exodus). By exposing David’s heart, God was able to correct it.
