2 Samuel 11:2-3

Context
11:2 One evening David got up from his bed and walked around on the roof of his palace. 1  From the roof he saw a woman bathing. Now this woman was very attractive. 2  11:3 So David sent someone to inquire about the woman. The messenger 3  said, “Isn’t this Bathsheba, the daughter of Eliam, the wife of Uriah the Hittite?”

1 tn Heb “on the roof of the house of the king.” So also in vv. 8, 9.

2 tn The disjunctive clause highlights this observation and builds the tension of the story.

3 tn Heb “he”; the referent (the messenger) has been specified in the translation for clarity.
