“David’s military census (see vv. 2-3) does not appear to have been prompted by any immediate external threat. Since he wanted to ‘know how many there are’ (v. 2), it is evident that his action was motivated by pride in the size of the empire he had acquired, by reliance for his security on the size of the reserve of manpower he could muster in an emergency or, more likely, by both.” New International Version Study Bible Notes
