2 Samuel 11:4
“And David sent messengers, and took her; and she came in unto him, and he lay with her; for she was purified from her uncleanness: and she returned unto her house.”
She was the wife of Uriah the Hittite.
2 Samuel 11:2
“And it came to pass in an eveningtide, that David arose from off his bed, and walked upon the roof of the king's house: and from the roof he saw a woman washing herself; and the woman was very beautiful to look upon.”
King David saw her from his rooftop and the lust of his flesh took over.
2 Samuel 11:3
“And David sent and enquired after the woman. And one said, Is not this Bathsheba, the daughter of Eliam, the wife of Uriah the Hittite?”
She was not David’s wife, yet he enquired after her.
She submitted to the king’s request, and came to him.
2 Samuel 11:5
“And the woman conceived, and sent and told David, and said, I am with child.”
She became pregnant by a man who was not her husband.
After King David received the news, he decided the fate of Uriah and assigned him to a place of war where valiant men were.
2 Samuel 11:26
“And when the wife of Uriah heard that Uriah her husband was dead, she mourned for her husband.”
She found out that her sin had cost her husband his life.
2 Samuel 11:27
“And when the mourning was past, David sent and fetched her to his house, and she became his wife, and bare him a son. But the thing that David had done displeased the LORD.”
Bathsheba serves as an example of how sin can completely ruin our lives if we give in to temptation.
“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.”
