2 Samuel 12:9-12

Context
12:9 Why have you shown contempt for the word of the Lord by doing evil in my 1  sight? You have struck down Uriah the Hittite with the sword and you have taken his wife as your own! 2  You have killed him with the sword of the Ammonites. 12:10 So now the sword will never depart from your house. For you have despised me by taking the wife of Uriah the Hittite as your own!’ 12:11 This is what the Lord says: ‘I am about to bring disaster on you 3  from inside your own household! 4  Right before your eyes I will take your wives and hand them over to your companion. 5  He will have sexual relations with 6  your wives in broad daylight! 7  12:12 Although you have acted in secret, I will do this thing before all Israel, and in broad daylight.’” 8
