RF SA2 11:1 (B.C. 1035.) The Beni-Amon Defeated.
But when the turn of the year came, the season when Generals go out to war, David sent J'oab and his officers with him, and the forces of Israel, and reduced the Beni-Amon to great distress. David, however, remained in Jerusalem.
RF SA2 11:2 (B.C. 1035.) David Seduces Bathsheba, the Wife of Uriah.
One night David arose from his bed, and walked on the verandah of his house, and saw a woman bathing herself on a roof, and a very beautiful woman she was.
RF SA2 11:3 So David sent and enquired about the woman, and was told "She is Bath-sheba, the daughter of Aliam, the wife of Uriah the Hitite."
RF SA2 11:4 Then David sent messengers and took her, and went to her, and lay with her, and prostituting, he defiled her, and then sent her home.
RF SA2 11:5 But the woman conceived, so she sent and informed David, and said, "I am with child!"
RF SA2 11:6 (B.C. 1035.) The Murder of Uriah.
David therefore sent to J'oab, to say, "Send Uriah the Hitite to me." Joab accordingly sent Uriah to David,
RF SA2 11:7 and Uriah came to him, when David asked "Is J'oab well? and the army well? and the war going successfully?"
RF SA2 11:8 Then David said to Uriah, "Go down to your house, and wash your feet." Uriah accordingly left the palace of the king, but went after the business of the king.—
RF SA2 11:9 Afterwards Uriah lay down in the court of the king's palace with all the officers of his Prince, and did not go to his own house.
RF SA2 11:10 But David was informed, "Uriah has not gone to his house." David consequently asked Uriah, "How is it when you have come from a journey, that you have not gone to your house?"
RF SA2 11:11 When Uriah answered David, "The Ark, and Israel, and Judah remain in tents, with my commander Joab; and the officers of my Prince lie on the surface of the field, so should I go to my house to eat and drink and sleep with my wife? By your life! and by the life of your soul, I would not do such a thing as that!"
RF SA2 11:12 Then David said to Uriah, "Stay here to-day, and to-morrow I will send you off." Uriah, therefore, remained in Jerusalem that day and the next, and David invited him,
RF SA2 11:13 and he ate in his presence, and he gave him drink, and made him drunk;—yet he went at night and lay down in his bed, with other officers of his Prince, and did not go down to his home!
RF SA2 11:14 Consequently when morning came David wrote a letter to J'oab, and sent it by the hand of Uriah,
RF SA2 11:15 and wrote in the letter commanding, "Station Uriah to-morrow in the front of the battle, at the most dangerous place; then you withdraw from his rear, and let him be assailed and killed."
RF SA2 11:16 J'oab was then besieging the city, so he posted Uriah at the spot where he knew there were brave men;
RF SA2 11:17 and those men sallied out of the city and attacked J'oab, who fell back with the troops of the officers of David, and Uriah the Hitite was killed.
RF SA2 11:18 Then J'oab sent and informed David of all the events of the battle,
RF SA2 11:19 and instructed the messenger, saying, "Tell the whole of the events of the battle to the king.
RF SA2 11:20 But if it happen that it raises anger in the king, and he says to you, 'Why did you approach the city to fight? Did you not know they would see you from the wall?
RF SA2 11:21 Who hit Abimalek-ben-Jerubal? Was it not a woman who flung upon him a piece of a millstone from off the wall, and killed him?' Then you must say, Also your officer, Uriah the Hitite has been killed.'"
RF SA2 11:22 So the messenger went, and came, and reported to David all that J'oab sent him for.
RF SA2 11:23 The messenger also said to David, "The men overpowered us, and came out to us in the open field when we advanced opposite the gate,
RF SA2 11:24 and the sentinels picked out your officers from off the wall, and killed some of the officers of the king,—and your General Uriah the Hitite also was killed."
RF SA2 11:25 Then David said to the messenger. "Say this to J'oab, 'Let not this event be grievous in your eyes, for the sword devours here and there. Be energetic in your assault upon the city, and breach it, and master it.'"
RF SA2 11:26 When the wife of Uriah heard he was dead she mourned over her lord, and refused to eat.
RF SA2 11:27 David, however, sent and added her to his family, and she became his wife, and bore him a son. But the thing that David had done was wrong in the sight of the EVER-LIVING.
