11:1 And it came to pass, after the year [H8141] was expired [H8666] , at the time [H6256] when kings [H4428] [H4397] go forth [H3318] [to battle], that David [H1732] sent [H7971] Joab [H3097] , and his servants [H5650] with him, and all Israel [H3478] ; and they destroyed [H7843] the children [H1121] of Ammon [H5983] , and besieged [H6696] Rabbah [H7237] . But David [H1732] tarried still [H3427] at Jerusalem [H3389] .(after: Heb. at the return of the year)

11:2 And it came to pass in an eveningtide [H6153] [H6256] , that David [H1732] arose [H6965] from off his bed [H4904] , and walked [H1980] upon the roof [H1406] of the king's [H4428] house [H1004] : and from the roof [H1406] he saw [H7200] a woman [H802] washing [H7364] herself; and the woman [H802] [was] very [H3966] beautiful [H2896] to look upon [H4758] .

11:3 And David [H1732] sent [H7971] and enquired [H1875] after the woman [H802] . And [one] said [H559] , [Is] not this Bathsheba [H1339] , the daughter [H1323] of Eliam [H463] , the wife [H802] of Uriah [H223] the Hittite [H2850] ?

11:4 And David [H1732] sent [H7971] messengers [H4397] , and took [H3947] her; and she came in [H935] unto him, and he lay [H7901] with her; for she was purified [H6942] from her uncleanness [H2932] : and she returned [H7725] unto her house [H1004] .(for she: or, and when she had purified herself, etc, she returned)

11:5 And the woman [H802] conceived [H2029] , and sent [H7971] and told [H5046] David [H1732] , and said [H559] , I [am] with child [H2030] .

11:6 And David [H1732] sent [H7971] to Joab [H3097] , [saying], Send [H7971] me Uriah [H223] the Hittite [H2850] . And Joab [H3097] sent [H7971] Uriah [H223] to David [H1732] .

11:7 And when Uriah [H223] was come [H935] unto him, David [H1732] demanded [H7592] [of him] how Joab [H3097] did [H7965] , and how the people [H5971] did [H7965] , and how the war [H4421] prospered [H7965] .(how Joab: Heb. of the peace of, etc)

11:8 And David [H1732] said [H559] to Uriah [H223] , Go down [H3381] to thy house [H1004] , and wash [H7364] thy feet [H7272] . And Uriah [H223] departed out [H3318] of the king's [H4428] house [H1004] , and there followed [H310] him a mess [H4864] [of meat] from the king [H4428] .(followed: Heb. went out after him)

11:9 But Uriah [H223] slept [H7901] at the door [H6607] of the king's [H4428] house [H1004] with all the servants [H5650] of his lord [H113] , and went not down [H3381] to his house [H1004] .

11:10 And when they had told [H5046] David [H1732] , saying [H559] , Uriah [H223] went not down [H3381] unto his house [H1004] , David [H1732] said [H559] unto Uriah [H223] , Camest [H935] thou not from [thy] journey [H1870] ? why [then] didst thou not go down [H3381] unto thine house [H1004] ?

11:11 And Uriah [H223] said [H559] unto David [H1732] , The ark [H727] , and Israel [H3478] , and Judah [H3063] , abide [H3427] in tents [H5521] ; and my lord [H113] Joab [H3097] , and the servants [H5650] of my lord [H113] , are encamped [H2583] in the open [H6440] fields [H7704] ; shall I [H589] then go [H935] into mine house [H1004] , to eat [H398] and to drink [H8354] , and to lie [H7901] with my wife [H802] ? [as] thou livest [H2416] , and [as] thy soul [H5315] liveth [H2416] , I will not do [H6213] this thing [H1697] .

11:12 And David [H1732] said [H559] to Uriah [H223] , Tarry [H3427] here to day [H3117] also, and to morrow [H4279] I will let thee depart [H7971] . So Uriah [H223] abode [H3427] in Jerusalem [H3389] that day [H3117] , and the morrow [H4283] .

11:13 And when David [H1732] had called [H7121] him, he did eat [H398] and drink [H8354] before [H6440] him; and he made him drunk [H7937] : and at even [H6153] he went out [H3318] to lie [H7901] on his bed [H4904] with the servants [H5650] of his lord [H113] , but went not down [H3381] to his house [H1004] .

11:14 And it came to pass in the morning [H1242] , that David [H1732] wrote [H3789] a letter [H5612] to Joab [H3097] , and sent [H7971] [it] by the hand [H3027] of Uriah [H223] .

11:15 And he wrote [H3789] in the letter [H5612] , saying [H559] , Set [H3051] ye Uriah [H223] in the forefront [H6440] [H4136] of the hottest [H2389] battle [H4421] , and retire [H7725] ye from him [H310] , that he may be smitten [H5221] , and die [H4191] .(hottest: Heb. strong)(from him: Heb. from after him)

11:16 And it came to pass, when Joab [H3097] observed [H8104] the city [H5892] , that he assigned [H5414] Uriah [H223] unto a place [H4725] where he knew [H3045] that valiant [H2428] men [H582] [were].

11:17 And the men [H582] of the city [H5892] went out [H3318] , and fought [H3898] with Joab [H3097] : and there fell [H5307] [some] of the people [H5971] of the servants [H5650] of David [H1732] ; and Uriah [H223] the Hittite [H2850] died [H4191] also.

11:18 Then Joab [H3097] sent [H7971] and told [H5046] David [H1732] all the things [H1697] concerning the war [H4421] ;

11:19 And charged [H6680] the messenger [H4397] , saying [H559] , When thou hast made an end [H3615] of telling [H1696] the matters [H1697] of the war [H4421] unto the king [H4428] ,

11:20 And if so be that the king's [H4428] wrath [H2534] arise [H5927] , and he say [H559] unto thee, Wherefore approached ye so nigh [H5066] unto the city [H5892] when ye did fight [H3898] ? knew [H3045] ye not that they would shoot [H3384] from the wall [H2346] ?

11:21 Who smote [H5221] Abimelech [H40] the son [H1121] of Jerubbesheth [H3380] ? did not a woman [H802] cast [H7993] a piece [H6400] of a millstone [H7393] upon him from the wall [H2346] , that he died [H4191] in Thebez [H8405] ? why went ye nigh [H5066] the wall [H2346] ? then say [H559] thou, Thy servant [H5650] Uriah [H223] the Hittite [H2850] is dead [H4191] also.

11:22 So the messenger [H4397] went [H3212] , and came [H935] and shewed [H5046] David [H1732] all that Joab [H3097] had sent [H7971] him for.

11:23 And the messenger [H4397] said [H559] unto David [H1732] , Surely the men [H582] prevailed [H1396] against us, and came out [H3318] unto us into the field [H7704] , and we were upon them even unto the entering [H6607] of the gate [H8179] .

11:24 And the shooters [H3384] shot [H3384] from off the wall [H2346] upon thy servants [H5650] ; and [some] of the king's [H4428] servants [H5650] be dead [H4191] , and thy servant [H5650] Uriah [H223] the Hittite [H2850] is dead [H4191] also.

11:25 Then David [H1732] said [H559] unto the messenger [H4397] , Thus shalt thou say [H559] unto Joab [H3097] , Let not this thing [H1697] displease [H3415] [H5869] thee, for the sword [H2719] devoureth [H398] one as well as another [H2090] : make thy battle [H4421] more strong [H2388] against the city [H5892] , and overthrow [H2040] it: and encourage [H2388] thou him.(displease: Heb. be evil in thine eyes)(one: Heb. so and such)

11:26 And when the wife [H802] of Uriah [H223] heard [H8085] that Uriah [H223] her husband [H376] was dead [H4191] , she mourned [H5594] for her husband [H1167] .

11:27 And when the mourning [H60] was past [H5674] , David [H1732] sent [H7971] and fetched [H622] her to his house [H1004] , and she became his wife [H802] , and bare [H3205] him a son [H1121] . But the thing [H1697] that David [H1732] had done [H6213] displeased [H3415] [H5869] the LORD [H3068] .(displeased: Heb. was evil in the eyes of)
