2 Samuel 11:1-27

And it came to pass, after the year
<08141>
was expired
<08666>_,
at the time
<06256>
when kings
<04428> (8675) <04397>
go forth
<03318> (8800)
[to battle], that David
<01732>
sent
<07971> (8799)
Joab
<03097>_,
and his servants
<05650>
with him, and all Israel
<03478>_;
and they destroyed
<07843> (8686)
the children
<01121>
of Ammon
<05983>_,
and besieged
<06696> (8799)
Rabbah
<07237>_.
But David
<01732>
tarried still
<03427> (8802)
at Jerusalem
<03389>_.
{after...: Heb. at the return of the year, or, in the spring}
And it came to pass in an eveningtide
<06153> <06256>_,
that David
<01732>
arose
<06965> (8799)
from off his bed
<04904>_,
and walked
<01980> (8691)
upon the roof
<01406>
of the king's
<04428>
house
<01004>_:
and from the roof
<01406>
he saw
<07200> (8799)
a woman
<0802>
washing
<07364> (8801)
herself; and the woman
<0802>
[was] very
<03966>
beautiful
<02896>
to look upon
<04758>_.
And David
<01732>
sent
<07971> (8799)
and enquired
<01875> (8799)
after the woman
<0802>_.
And [one] said
<0559> (8799)_,
[Is] not this Bathsheba
<01339>_,
the daughter
<01323>
of Eliam
<0463>_,
the wife
<0802>
of Uriah
<0223>
the Hittite
<02850>_?
{Bathsheba: or, Bathshuah} {Eliam: or Ammiel}
And David
<01732>
sent
<07971> (8799)
messengers
<04397>_,
and took
<03947> (8799)
her; and she came in
<0935> (8799)
unto him, and he lay
<07901> (8799)
with her; for she was purified
<06942> (8693)
from her uncleanness
<02932>_:
and she returned
<07725> (8799)
unto her house
<01004>_.
{for she...: or, and when she had purified herself, etc, she returned}
And the woman
<0802>
conceived
<02029> (8799)_,
and sent
<07971> (8799)
and told
<05046> (8686)
David
<01732>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
I [am] with child
<02030>_.
And David
<01732>
sent
<07971> (8799)
to Joab
<03097>_,
[saying], Send
<07971> (8798)
me Uriah
<0223>
the Hittite
<02850>_.
And Joab
<03097>
sent
<07971> (8799)
Uriah
<0223>
to David
<01732>_.
And when Uriah
<0223>
was come
<0935> (8799)
unto him, David
<01732>
demanded
<07592> (8799)
[of him] how Joab
<03097>
did
<07965>_,
and how the people
<05971>
did
<07965>_,
and how the war
<04421>
prospered
<07965>_.
{how Joab...: Heb. of the peace of, etc}
And David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)
to Uriah
<0223>_,
Go down
<03381> (8798)
to thy house
<01004>_,
and wash
<07364> (8798)
thy feet
<07272>_.
And Uriah
<0223>
departed out
<03318> (8799)
of the king's
<04428>
house
<01004>_,
and there followed
<0310>
him a mess
<04864>
[of meat] from the king
<04428>_.
{followed...: Heb. went out after him}
But Uriah
<0223>
slept
<07901> (8799)
at the door
<06607>
of the king's
<04428>
house
<01004>
with all the servants
<05650>
of his lord
<0113>_,
and went not down
<03381> (8804)
to his house
<01004>_.
And when they had told
<05046> (8686)
David
<01732>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Uriah
<0223>
went not down
<03381> (8804)
unto his house
<01004>_,
David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Uriah
<0223>_,
Camest
<0935> (8802)
thou not from [thy] journey
<01870>_?
why [then] didst thou not go down
<03381> (8804)
unto thine house
<01004>_?
And Uriah
<0223>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto David
<01732>_,
The ark
<0727>_,
and Israel
<03478>_,
and Judah
<03063>_,
abide
<03427> (8802)
in tents
<05521>_;
and my lord
<0113>
Joab
<03097>_,
and the servants
<05650>
of my lord
<0113>_,
are encamped
<02583> (8802)
in the open
<06440>
fields
<07704>_;
shall I
<0589>
then go
<0935> (8799)
into mine house
<01004>_,
to eat
<0398> (8800)
and to drink
<08354> (8800)_,
and to lie
<07901> (8800)
with my wife
<0802>_?
[as] thou livest
<02416>_,
and [as] thy soul
<05315>
liveth
<02416>_,
I will not do
<06213> (8799)
this thing
<01697>_.
And David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)
to Uriah
<0223>_,
Tarry
<03427> (8798)
here to day
<03117>
also, and to morrow
<04279>
I will let thee depart
<07971> (8762)_.
So Uriah
<0223>
abode
<03427> (8799)
in Jerusalem
<03389>
that day
<03117>_,
and the morrow
<04283>_.
And when David
<01732>
had called
<07121> (8799)
him, he did eat
<0398> (8799)
and drink
<08354> (8799)
before
<06440>
him; and he made him drunk
<07937> (8762)_:
and at even
<06153>
he went out
<03318> (8799)
to lie
<07901> (8800)
on his bed
<04904>
with the servants
<05650>
of his lord
<0113>_,
but went not down
<03381> (8804)
to his house
<01004>_.
And it came to pass in the morning
<01242>_,
that David
<01732>
wrote
<03789> (8799)
a letter
<05612>
to Joab
<03097>_,
and sent
<07971> (8799)
[it] by the hand
<03027>
of Uriah
<0223>_.
And he wrote
<03789> (8799)
in the letter
<05612>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Set
<03051> (8798)
ye Uriah
<0223>
in the forefront
<06440> <04136>
of the hottest
<02389>
battle
<04421>_,
and retire
<07725> (8804)
ye from him
<0310>_,
that he may be smitten
<05221> (8738)_,
and die
<04191> (8804)_.
{hottest: Heb. strong} {from him: Heb. from after him}
And it came to pass, when Joab
<03097>
observed
<08104> (8800)
the city
<05892>_,
that he assigned
<05414> (8799)
Uriah
<0223>
unto a place
<04725>
where he knew
<03045> (8804)
that valiant
<02428>
men
<0582>
[were].
And the men
<0582>
of the city
<05892>
went out
<03318> (8799)_,
and fought
<03898> (8735)
with Joab
<03097>_:
and there fell
<05307> (8799)
[some] of the people
<05971>
of the servants
<05650>
of David
<01732>_;
and Uriah
<0223>
the Hittite
<02850>
died
<04191> (8799)
also.
Then Joab
<03097>
sent
<07971> (8799)
and told
<05046> (8686)
David
<01732>
all the things
<01697>
concerning the war
<04421>_;
And charged
<06680> (8762)
the messenger
<04397>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
When thou hast made an end
<03615> (8763)
of telling
<01696> (8763)
the matters
<01697>
of the war
<04421>
unto the king
<04428>_,
And if so be that the king's
<04428>
wrath
<02534>
arise
<05927> (8799)_,
and he say
<0559> (8804)
unto thee, Wherefore approached ye so nigh
<05066> (8738)
unto the city
<05892>
when ye did fight
<03898> (8736)_?
knew
<03045> (8804)
ye not that they would shoot
<03384> (8686)
from the wall
<02346>_?
Who smote
<05221> (8689)
Abimelech
<040>
the son
<01121>
of Jerubbesheth
<03380>_?
did not a woman
<0802>
cast
<07993> (8689)
a piece
<06400>
of a millstone
<07393>
upon him from the wall
<02346>_,
that he died
<04191> (8799)
in Thebez
<08405>_?
why went ye nigh
<05066> (8738)
the wall
<02346>_?
then say
<0559> (8804)
thou, Thy servant
<05650>
Uriah
<0223>
the Hittite
<02850>
is dead
<04191> (8804)
also. {Jerubbesheth: also called, Jerubbaal}
So the messenger
<04397>
went
<03212> (8799)_,
and came
<0935> (8799)
and shewed
<05046> (8686)
David
<01732>
all that Joab
<03097>
had sent
<07971> (8804)
him for.
And the messenger
<04397>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto David
<01732>_,
Surely the men
<0582>
prevailed
<01396> (8804)
against us, and came out
<03318> (8799)
unto us into the field
<07704>_,
and we were upon them even unto the entering
<06607>
of the gate
<08179>_.
And the shooters
<03384> (8688)
shot
<03384> (8686)
from off the wall
<02346>
upon thy servants
<05650>_;
and [some] of the king's
<04428>
servants
<05650>
be dead
<04191> (8799)_,
and thy servant
<05650>
Uriah
<0223>
the Hittite
<02850>
is dead
<04191> (8804)
also.
Then David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto the messenger
<04397>_,
Thus shalt thou say
<0559> (8799)
unto Joab
<03097>_,
Let not this thing
<01697>
displease
<03415> (8799) <05869>
thee, for the sword
<02719>
devoureth
<0398> (8799)
one as well as another
<02090>_:
make thy battle
<04421>
more strong
<02388> (8685)
against the city
<05892>_,
and overthrow
<02040> (8798)
it: and encourage
<02388> (8761)
thou him. {displease...: Heb. be evil in thine eyes} {one...: Heb. so and such}
And when the wife
<0802>
of Uriah
<0223>
heard
<08085> (8799)
that Uriah
<0223>
her husband
<0376>
was dead
<04191> (8804)_,
she mourned
<05594> (8799)
for her husband
<01167>_.
And when the mourning
<060>
was past
<05674> (8799)_,
David
<01732>
sent
<07971> (8799)
and fetched
<0622> (8799)
her to his house
<01004>_,
and she became his wife
<0802>_,
and bare
<03205> (8799)
him a son
<01121>_.
But the thing
<01697>
that David
<01732>
had done
<06213> (8804)
displeased
<03415> (8799) <05869>
the LORD
<03068>_.
{displeased: Heb. was evil in the eyes of}
