2 Samuel 12:1-14

And the LORD
<03068>
sent
<07971> (8799)
Nathan
<05416>
unto David
<01732>_.
And he came
<0935> (8799)
unto him, and said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, There were two
<08147>
men
<0582>
in one
<0259>
city
<05892>_;
the one
<0259>
rich
<06223>_,
and the other
<0259>
poor
<07326> (8802)_.
The rich
<06223>
[man] had exceeding
<03966>
many
<07235> (8687)
flocks
<06629>
and herds
<01241>_:
But the poor
<07326> (8802)
[man] had nothing, save one
<0259>
little
<06996>
ewe lamb
<03535>_,
which he had bought
<07069> (8804)
and nourished up
<02421> (8762)_:
and it grew up
<01431> (8799)
together
<03162>
with him, and with his children
<01121>_;
it did eat
<0398> (8799)
of his own meat
<06595>_,
and drank
<08354> (8799)
of his own cup
<03563>_,
and lay
<07901> (8799)
in his bosom
<02436>_,
and was unto him as a daughter
<01323>_.
{meat: Heb. morsel}
And there came
<0935> (8799)
a traveller
<01982>
unto the rich
<06223>
man
<0376>_,
and he spared
<02550> (8799)
to take
<03947> (8800)
of his own flock
<06629>
and of his own herd
<01241>_,
to dress
<06213> (8800)
for the wayfaring man
<0732> (8802)
that was come
<0935> (8802)
unto him; but took
<03947> (8799)
the poor
<07326> (8802)
man's
<0376>
lamb
<03535>_,
and dressed
<06213> (8799)
it for the man
<0376>
that was come
<0935> (8802)
to him.
And David's
<01732>
anger
<0639>
was greatly
<03966>
kindled
<02734> (8799)
against the man
<0376>_;
and he said
<0559> (8799)
to Nathan
<05416>_,
[As] the LORD
<03068>
liveth
<02416>_,
the man
<0376>
that hath done
<06213> (8802)
this [thing] shall surely
<01121>
die
<04194>_:
{shall...: or, is worthy to die, or, is a son of death}
And he shall restore
<07999> (8762)
the lamb
<03535>
fourfold
<0706>_,
because
<06118>
he did
<06213> (8804)
this thing
<01697>_,
and because
<0834>
he had no pity
<02550> (8804)_.
And Nathan
<05416>
said
<0559> (8799)
to David
<01732>_,
Thou [art] the man
<0376>_.
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>_,
I anointed
<04886> (8804)
thee king
<04428>
over Israel
<03478>_,
and I delivered
<05337> (8689)
thee out of the hand
<03027>
of Saul
<07586>_;
And I gave
<05414> (8799)
thee thy master's
<0113>
house
<01004>_,
and thy master's
<0113>
wives
<0802>
into thy bosom
<02436>_,
and gave
<05414> (8799)
thee the house
<01004>
of Israel
<03478>
and of Judah
<03063>_;
and if [that had been] too little
<04592>_,
I would moreover have given
<03254> (8686)
unto thee such
<02007>
and such things
<02007>_.
Wherefore hast thou despised
<0959> (8804)
the commandment
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
to do
<06213> (8800)
evil
<07451>
in his sight
<05869>_?
thou hast killed
<05221> (8689)
Uriah
<0223>
the Hittite
<02850>
with the sword
<02719>_,
and hast taken
<03947> (8804)
his wife
<0802>
[to be] thy wife
<0802>_,
and hast slain
<02026> (8804)
him with the sword
<02719>
of the children
<01121>
of Ammon
<05983>_.
Now therefore the sword
<02719>
shall never
<05704> <05769>
depart
<05493> (8799)
from thine house
<01004>_;
because
<06118>
thou hast despised
<0959> (8804)
me, and hast taken
<03947> (8799)
the wife
<0802>
of Uriah
<0223>
the Hittite
<02850>
to be thy wife
<0802>_.
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_,
Behold, I will raise up
<06965> (8688)
evil
<07451>
against thee out of thine own house
<01004>_,
and I will take
<03947> (8804)
thy wives
<0802>
before thine eyes
<05869>_,
and give
<05414> (8804)
[them] unto thy neighbour
<07453>_,
and he shall lie
<07901> (8804)
with thy wives
<0802>
in the sight
<05869>
of this sun
<08121>_.
For thou didst
<06213> (8804)
[it] secretly
<05643>_:
but I will do
<06213> (8799)
this thing
<01697>
before all Israel
<03478>_,
and before the sun
<08121>_.
And David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Nathan
<05416>_,
I have sinned
<02398> (8804)
against the LORD
<03068>_.
And Nathan
<05416>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto David
<01732>_,
The LORD
<03068>
also hath put away
<05674> (8689)
thy sin
<02403>_;
thou shalt not die
<04191> (8799)_.
Howbeit
<0657>_,
because by this deed
<01697>
thou hast given
<05006> (0)
great occasion
<05006> (8763)
to the enemies
<0341> (8802)
of the LORD
<03068>
to blaspheme
<05006> (8765)_,
the child
<01121>
also [that is] born
<03209>
unto thee shall surely
<04191> (8800)
die
<04191> (8799)_.
