Rather than giving the answer to the original question, I think it is better to try and encourage people to solve problems themselves -- perhaps I am being too much of an teacher, but that is my approach.

So, let me pose a question in response to the original question. What is the relationship between summing a set of values on a grid and the integral of a function sampled at a set of grid points. Think about this, and the reason why the numbers are very different will be obvious. If they still do not completely agree (they wont), then think about the accuracy of numerical integration. It is quite important in DFT codes to remember that numerical integrations are never exact, and this leads to many small limitations.
