12:1 And the LORD [H3068] sent [H7971] Nathan [H5416] unto David [H1732] . And he came [H935] unto him, and said [H559] unto him, There were two [H8147] men [H582] in one [H259] city [H5892] ; the one [H259] rich [H6223] , and the other [H259] poor [H7326] .

12:2 The rich [H6223] [man] had exceeding [H3966] many [H7235] flocks [H6629] and herds [H1241] :

12:3 But the poor [H7326] [man] had nothing, save one [H259] little [H6996] ewe lamb [H3535] , which he had bought [H7069] and nourished up [H2421] : and it grew up [H1431] together [H3162] with him, and with his children [H1121] ; it did eat [H398] of his own meat [H6595] , and drank [H8354] of his own cup [H3563] , and lay [H7901] in his bosom [H2436] , and was unto him as a daughter [H1323] .(meat: Heb. morsel)

12:4 And there came [H935] a traveller [H1982] unto the rich [H6223] man [H376] , and he spared [H2550] to take [H3947] of his own flock [H6629] and of his own herd [H1241] , to dress [H6213] for the wayfaring man [H732] that was come [H935] unto him; but took [H3947] the poor [H7326] man's [H376] lamb [H3535] , and dressed [H6213] it for the man [H376] that was come [H935] to him.

12:5 And David's [H1732] anger [H639] was greatly [H3966] kindled [H2734] against the man [H376] ; and he said [H559] to Nathan [H5416] , [As] the LORD [H3068] liveth [H2416] , the man [H376] that hath done [H6213] this [thing] shall surely [H1121] die [H4194] :(shall: or, is worthy to die, or, is a son of death)

12:6 And he shall restore [H7999] the lamb [H3535] fourfold [H706] , because [H6118] he did [H6213] this thing [H1697] , and because [H834] he had no pity [H2550] .

12:7 And Nathan [H5416] said [H559] to David [H1732] , Thou [art] the man [H376] . Thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] God [H430] of Israel [H3478] , I anointed [H4886] thee king [H4428] over Israel [H3478] , and I delivered [H5337] thee out of the hand [H3027] of Saul [H7586] ;

12:8 And I gave [H5414] thee thy master's [H113] house [H1004] , and thy master's [H113] wives [H802] into thy bosom [H2436] , and gave [H5414] thee the house [H1004] of Israel [H3478] and of Judah [H3063] ; and if [that had been] too little [H4592] , I would moreover have given [H3254] unto thee such [H2007] and such things [H2007] .

12:9 Wherefore hast thou despised [H959] the commandment [H1697] of the LORD [H3068] , to do [H6213] evil [H7451] in his sight [H5869] ? thou hast killed [H5221] Uriah [H223] the Hittite [H2850] with the sword [H2719] , and hast taken [H3947] his wife [H802] [to be] thy wife [H802] , and hast slain [H2026] him with the sword [H2719] of the children [H1121] of Ammon [H5983] .

12:10 Now therefore the sword [H2719] shall never [H5704] [H5769] depart [H5493] from thine house [H1004] ; because [H6118] thou hast despised [H959] me, and hast taken [H3947] the wife [H802] of Uriah [H223] the Hittite [H2850] to be thy wife [H802] .

12:11 Thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] , Behold, I will raise up [H6965] evil [H7451] against thee out of thine own house [H1004] , and I will take [H3947] thy wives [H802] before thine eyes [H5869] , and give [H5414] [them] unto thy neighbour [H7453] , and he shall lie [H7901] with thy wives [H802] in the sight [H5869] of this sun [H8121] .

12:12 For thou didst [H6213] [it] secretly [H5643] : but I will do [H6213] this thing [H1697] before all Israel [H3478] , and before the sun [H8121] .

12:13 And David [H1732] said [H559] unto Nathan [H5416] , I have sinned [H2398] against the LORD [H3068] . And Nathan [H5416] said [H559] unto David [H1732] , The LORD [H3068] also hath put away [H5674] thy sin [H2403] ; thou shalt not die [H4191] .

12:14 Howbeit [H657] , because by this deed [H1697] thou hast given [H5006] great occasion [H5006] to the enemies [H341] of the LORD [H3068] to blaspheme [H5006] , the child [H1121] also [that is] born [H3209] unto thee shall surely [H4191] die [H4191] .

12:15 And Nathan [H5416] departed [H3212] unto his house [H1004] . And the LORD [H3068] struck [H5062] the child [H3206] that Uriah's [H223] wife [H802] bare [H3205] unto David [H1732] , and it was very sick [H605] .

12:16 David [H1732] therefore besought [H1245] God [H430] for the child [H5288] ; and David [H1732] fasted [H6684] [H6685] , and went in [H935] , and lay [H7901] all night [H3885] upon the earth [H776] .(fasted: Heb. fasted a fast)

12:17 And the elders [H2205] of his house [H1004] arose [H6965] , [and went] to him, to raise him up [H6965] from the earth [H776] : but he would [H14] not, neither did he eat [H1262] bread [H3899] with them.

12:18 And it came to pass on the seventh [H7637] day [H3117] , that the child [H3206] died [H4191] . And the servants [H5650] of David [H1732] feared [H3372] to tell [H5046] him that the child [H3206] was dead [H4191] : for they said [H559] , Behold, while the child [H3206] was yet alive [H2416] , we spake [H1696] unto him, and he would not hearken [H8085] unto our voice [H6963] : how will he then [H6213] vex [H7451] himself [H6213] , if we tell [H559] him that the child [H3206] is dead [H4191] ?(vex: Heb. do hurt)

12:19 But when David [H1732] saw [H7200] that his servants [H5650] whispered [H3907] , David [H1732] perceived [H995] that the child [H3206] was dead [H4191] : therefore David [H1732] said [H559] unto his servants [H5650] , Is the child [H3206] dead [H4191] ? And they said [H559] , He is dead [H4191] .

12:20 Then David [H1732] arose [H6965] from the earth [H776] , and washed [H7364] , and anointed [H5480] [himself], and changed [H2498] his apparel [H8071] , and came [H935] into the house [H1004] of the LORD [H3068] , and worshipped [H7812] : then he came [H935] to his own house [H1004] ; and when he required [H7592] , they set [H7760] bread [H3899] before him, and he did eat [H398] .

12:21 Then said [H559] his servants [H5650] unto him, What thing [H1697] [is] this that thou hast done [H6213] ? thou didst fast [H6684] and weep [H1058] for the child [H3206] , [while it was] alive [H2416] ; but when the child [H3206] was dead [H4191] , thou didst rise [H6965] and eat [H398] bread [H3899] .

12:22 And he said [H559] , While the child [H3206] was yet alive [H2416] , I fasted [H6684] and wept [H1058] : for I said [H559] , Who can tell [H3045] [whether] GOD [H3068] will be gracious [H2603] [H2603] to me, that the child [H3206] may live [H2416] ?

12:23 But now he is dead [H4191] , wherefore should I fast [H6684] ? can [H3201] I bring him back again [H7725] ? I shall go [H1980] to him, but he shall not return [H7725] to me.

12:24 And David [H1732] comforted [H5162] Bathsheba [H1339] his wife [H802] , and went in [H935] unto her, and lay [H7901] with her: and she bare [H3205] a son [H1121] , and he called [H7121] his name [H8034] Solomon [H8010] : and the LORD [H3068] loved [H157] him.

12:25 And he sent [H7971] by the hand [H3027] of Nathan [H5416] the prophet [H5030] ; and he called [H7121] his name [H8034] Jedidiah [H3041] , because of the LORD [H3068] .(Jedidiah: that is, Beloved of the LORD)

12:26 And Joab [H3097] fought [H3898] against Rabbah [H7237] of the children [H1121] of Ammon [H5983] , and took [H3920] the royal [H4410] city [H5892] .

12:27 And Joab [H3097] sent [H7971] messengers [H4397] to David [H1732] , and said [H559] , I have fought [H3898] against Rabbah [H7237] , and have taken [H3920] the city [H5892] of waters [H4325] .

12:28 Now therefore gather [H622] the rest [H3499] of the people [H5971] together [H622] , and encamp [H2583] against the city [H5892] , and take [H3920] it: lest I take [H3920] the city [H5892] , and it be called [H7121] after my name [H8034] .(it be called: Heb. my name be called upon it)

12:29 And David [H1732] gathered [H622] all the people [H5971] together [H622] , and went [H3212] to Rabbah [H7237] , and fought [H3898] against it, and took [H3920] it.

12:30 And he took [H3947] their king's [H4428] crown [H5850] from off his head [H7218] , the weight [H4948] whereof [was] a talent [H3603] of gold [H2091] with the precious [H3368] stones [H68] : and it was [set] on David's [H1732] head [H7218] . And he brought forth [H3318] the spoil [H7998] of the city [H5892] in great [H3966] abundance [H7235] .(in great: Heb. very great)

12:31 And he brought forth [H3318] the people [H5971] that [were] therein, and put [H7760] [them] under saws [H4050] , and under harrows [H2757] of iron [H1270] , and under axes [H4037] of iron [H1270] , and made them pass [H5674] through the brickkiln [H4404] : and thus did [H6213] he unto all the cities [H5892] of the children [H1121] of Ammon [H5983] . So David [H1732] and all the people [H5971] returned [H7725] unto Jerusalem [H3389] .
