How much did David pay?

2 Samuel 24:24 And the king said unto Araunah, Nay; but I will surely buy it of thee at a price: neither will I offer burnt offerings unto the LORD my God of that which doth cost me nothing. So David bought the threshingfloor and the oxen for fifty shekels of silver.
1 Chronicles 21:25 So David gave to Ornan for the place six hundred shekels of gold by weight.
2 Sam. 24 says that David paid "fifty shekels of silver", but 1 Chron. 21 says that David gave "six hundred shekels of gold by weight". How much did David pay?

A video solution harmonizing the seemingly contradictory amounts of money that David paid Ornan the Jebusite in the Old Testament.

2 Samuel 24 provides the price that David paid for the oxen and the threshingfloor while 1 Chronicles 21 gives the price that David paid for the entire place.
