2 Samuel 11:2-3

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

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

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

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