2 Samuel Chapter 11 – Chronological

And it came to pass, after the year was expired, at the time when kings go forth to battle, that David sent Joab, and his servants with him, and all Israel; and they destroyed the children of Ammon, and besieged Rabbah. But David tarried still at Jerusalem.

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.

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?

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.

And the woman conceived, and sent and told David, and said, I am with child.

And David sent to Joab, saying, Send me Uriah the Hittite. And Joab sent Uriah to David.

And when Uriah was come unto him, David demanded of him how Joab did, and how the people did, and how the war prospered.

And David said to Uriah, Go down to thy house, and wash thy feet. And Uriah departed out of the king’s house, and there followed him a mess of meat from the king.

But Uriah slept at the door of the king’s house with all the servants of his lord, and went not down to his house.

10 And when they had told David, saying, Uriah went not down unto his house, David said unto Uriah, Camest thou not from thy journey? why then didst thou not go down unto thine house?

11 And Uriah said unto David, The ark, and Israel, and Judah, abide in tents; and my lord Joab, and the servants of my lord, are encamped in the open fields; shall I then go into mine house, to eat and to drink, and to lie with my wife? as thou livest, and as thy soul liveth, I will not do this thing.

12 And David said to Uriah, Tarry here to day also, and to morrow I will let thee depart. So Uriah abode in Jerusalem that day, and the morrow.

13 And when David had called him, he did eat and drink before him; and he made him drunk: and at even he went out to lie on his bed with the servants of his lord, but went not down to his house.

14 And it came to pass in the morning, that David wrote a letter to Joab, and sent it by the hand of Uriah.

15 And he wrote in the letter, saying, Set ye Uriah in the forefront of the hottest battle, and retire ye from him, that he may be smitten, and die.

16 And it came to pass, when Joab observed the city, that he assigned Uriah unto a place where he knew that valiant men were.

17 And the men of the city went out, and fought with Joab: and there fell some of the people of the servants of David; and Uriah the Hittite died also.

18 Then Joab sent and told David all the things concerning the war;

19 And charged the messenger, saying, When thou hast made an end of telling the matters of the war unto the king,

20 And if so be that the king’s wrath arise, and he say unto thee, Wherefore approached ye so nigh unto the city when ye did fight? knew ye not that they would shoot from the wall?

21 Who smote Abimelech the son of Jerubbesheth? did not a woman cast a piece of a millstone upon him from the wall, that he died in Thebez? why went ye nigh the wall? then say thou, Thy servant Uriah the Hittite is dead also.

22 So the messenger went, and came and shewed David all that Joab had sent him for.

23 And the messenger said unto David, Surely the men prevailed against us, and came out unto us into the field, and we were upon them even unto the entering of the gate.

24 And the shooters shot from off the wall upon thy servants; and some of the king’s servants be dead, and thy servant Uriah the Hittite is dead also.

25 Then David said unto the messenger, Thus shalt thou say unto Joab, Let not this thing displease thee, for the sword devoureth one as well as another: make thy battle more strong against the city, and overthrow it: and encourage thou him.

26 And when the wife of Uriah heard that Uriah her husband was dead, she mourned for her husband.

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.

  1. “And when the time of mourning was past, David sent word and had her brought to his house, and she became his wife and bore him a son. But the thing that David had done [with Bathsheba] was evil in the sight of the LORD.”
    ‭‭2 Samuel‬ ‭11:27‬ ‭AMP‬‬

    One sin will lead to another! No death of a human being will ever cover your sin. You can not hide from the Lord. The Lord knows the intent of the heart of man/woman. The word of GOD tells us …’and be sure your sin will find you out.’ And as it was so with David, the word of GOD stands true today.

    The integrity of a man will always be for the best of himself and his family.

    But his foolish desires will destroy his marriage, his children, and lose more than he ever thought.
    TRUST, IT is HARD TO GAIN IT BACK!!!!

    I’ve seen it in to many broken marriages.

    Just for a moment of pleasure.

  2. 2 Samuel 11
    We see in King David that we must not allow The devil to have access in our thoughts. Once entertained we open a door for our temptation. 1 John 2:16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. Our relationship with Jesus and our baptism for the remission of sins helps to stay on track with Jesus .and helps us say know to temptations. The Baptism in the Holy Spirit with speaking in tongues helps us to have the power to say no. In this Gospel we are given power from on high. Not that we do not ever sin but with out the Gospel our flesh is more likely to be over come by temptations. By not being with his troops David was set up to be tempted and in that temptation with Bathsheba he had to cover up her pregnancy which he created with her which the death of her husband resulted. The word says greater is He in you then he that is in the world. Let us allow Jesus to have full sway in ever thing we do each day. For the steps of a righteous man or woman is ordered by the Lord.

  3. Sin begins in the heart. We must be aware of what we look at ,listen to and partake in.
    It begins little and you can think one look , one touch and even one taste won’t hurt.

    James 1:15
    Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.

    David took a look . Bathsheba answered the beckoning. Sin was conceived. We must guard our minds and hearts daily and keep our eyes turned towards the savior of our soul.

  4. Esto me recuerda que el placer es vano y el deceo fugas ,Por un momento de placer podemos perder la eternidad con nuestro senor JESUS. Cuidemos lo que vemos,oimos y decimos para no comprometer nuestra integridad como hijos de DIOS.

  5. 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.

    5 And the woman conceived, and sent and told David, and said, I am with child.

    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.

    When you sin and try to cover it up, there is no way to remove it from the sight of God. David began while in the roof top and the very list of Bathsheba began as he watched her. When he took her even though she was married, the sin grew bigger and bigger. No matter your position, your very actions can cause you to displease God and there will come a time to stand before God and be held accountable for them. David get like since he was king, he could cover up his deed but It didn’t work liked he hoped. Then a single sin led to another bigger sin.

    So many people have the tendency of David while walking with God. How can a person dealing in sin think that God will not hold them accountable for their actions. And how can one person justify their actions to make it ok. The very idea that one person can think that it’s ok to sin and then try to make it appear as though they are living right in the eyes of God. We have to find a place where we can come clean and find forgiveness for what we do and hope that we can find the glory of God’s mercy and grace to continue in him. Be humble and submit to him with sincerity and humility to gain the forgiveness.

  6. 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.

    17. And the men of the city went out, and fought with Joab: and there fell some of the people of the servants of David; and Uriah the Hittite died also.

    A lustful look, then acted upon, led to deceitfulness, a broken home, and eventually death.

    James 1:15
    Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.

  7. 5 And the woman conceived, and sent and told David, and said, I am with child.

    The Church is the bride of Christ. There was only one perfect Church, which only lasted as long as some of the first chapters of Acts. Today there is no perfect Church because it is made up of imperfect people. When the seed of sin is planted and fed it will grow like child in the womb. It is just a matter of time when the evidence of sin shows its head, which we will see as book of 2 Samuel progresses.

  8. Matthew 5:27-30 AMP “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery’; but I say to you that everyone who [so much as] looks at a woman with lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. If your right eye makes you stumble and leads you to sin, tear it out and throw it away [that is, remove yourself from the source of temptation]; for it is better for you to lose one of the parts of your body, than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. If your right hand makes you stumble and leads you to sin, cut it off and throw it away [that is, remove yourself from the source of temptation]; for it is better for you to lose one of the parts of your body than for your whole body to go into hell.” Pretty clear!

    Proverbs 4:23-27 AMP says “Watch over your heart with all diligence, For from it flow the springs of life. Put away from you a deceitful (lying, misleading) mouth, And put devious lips far from you. Let your eyes look directly ahead [toward the path of moral courage] And let your gaze be fixed straight in front of you [toward the path of integrity]. Consider well and watch carefully the path of your feet, And all your ways will be steadfast and sure. Do not turn away to the right nor to the left [where evil may lurk]; Turn your foot from [the path of] evil.” You make the choice to LIVE-GIVE JESUS, every day!

  9. 26 And when the wife of Uriah heard that Uriah her husband was dead, she mourned for her husband.

    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.

    Proverbs 4:23
    Keep thy heart with all diligence;
    for out of it are the issues of life.

    Our hearts are fueled by emotions; and at times we get carried away in a situation and that is when we need to pray and fast so that our minds are clear and our hearts are yielded to God.

  10. ““Well, stay here today,” David told him, “and tomorrow you may return to the army.” So Uriah stayed in Jerusalem that day and the next. Then David invited him to dinner and got him drunk. But even then he couldn’t get Uriah to go home to his wife. Again he slept at the palace entrance with the king’s palace guard.”
    ‭‭2 Samuel‬ ‭11:12-13‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    Uriah is a good example of how us Christians should conduct ourselves as fellow-soldiers in the spiritual battle.
    “Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep. Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.”
    ‭‭Romans‬ ‭12:15-16‬ ‭KJV‬‬

  11. 2 Sam. 11 : 27 [ amp] And when the morning was past , David sent and brought her to his house , and she became his wife and bore him a son. But the thing that David had done was evil in the sight of the Lord.
    David was being disobeintant to the Lord.
    Committing Adultey and telling lies is a sin.
    Sin is costly !
    Sin can only be washed by the Blood of Jesus !
    Jesus paided for it all.
    Romans 3: 23 [ amp] Since all have sinned and are falling short of the honer and glory which God bestows and recceives.
    Nothing but the Blood of Jesus can save us.
    Stay close to God.

  12. 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.

    You may accomplish a “success,” but truthfully in the end who are you pleasing? David went out of the way to get what he wanted and even succeeded, but God was not pleased. The one thing we have to make sure of is to save ourselves and in order to do that, we must please God above all else.

  13. Yes we must please God above all else. A calculated sin was committed and with a high cost. God said your sins will be uncovered.

  14. 24 And the shooters shot from off the wall upon thy servants; and some of the king’s servants be dead, and thy servant Uriah the Hittite is dead also.

    25 Then David said unto the messenger, Thus shalt thou say unto Joab, Let not this thing displease thee, for the sword devoureth one as well as another: make thy battle more strong against the city, and overthrow it: and encourage thou him.

    “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
    ‭‭Romans‬ ‭6:23‬

    We know that the consequences of sin si death And that many people lose, not just the sinner. So it’s best not to give room totemptation and pray.

    “And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.”
    ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭6:13‬ ‭

    A.L.M.A.S.

  15. 11 And Uriah said unto David, The ark, and Israel, and Judah, abide in tents; and my lord Joab, and the servants of my lord, are encamped in the open fields; shall I then go into mine house, to eat and to drink, and to lie with my wife? as thou livest, and as thy soul liveth, I will not do this thing.

    12 And David said to Uriah, Tarry here to day also, and to morrow I will let thee depart. So Uriah abode in Jerusalem that day, and the morrow.

    If Uriah would of gone into his house and be with his wife, he would of have lived. For then the sin of David would of been covered up and the baby would of lived as Uriah’s child. David tried to cover up his sin with another sin. A sin of lies. That’s what sins does in your life ones in comes in it multiplies for it takes sins to cover sins. You can cover a sin with righteousness but you can free yourself with righteousness, by repenting and coming to God with truth. Thank you Jesus for you said you will always make a way out of sin. John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. JESUS IS THE ONLY WAY OUT OF SIN!!!!!!! Thank you Jesus for giving us freedom!

  16. David was looking at something he shouldn’t have been. Then the desires of his flesh took over. One sin caused another sin the it snowballed from there.

    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.

    Whether it be good or bad there is always a consequence to your actions.

  17. iLove the Kingdom of Jesus
    2Sa 11:1 And it came to pass, after the year was expired, at the time when kings go forth to battle, that David sent Joab, and his servants with him, and all Israel; and they destroyed the children of Ammon, and besieged Rabbah. But David tarried still at Jerusalem.
    2Sa 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

    Notice a couple things about this scripture. First thing is this was a time of war. the Bible says it was the time when kings go forth for battle. There is a place where the church goes out for battle and its called the Church. Ole David decided to stay home and watch Bay Watch instead of going to the place where kings go forth. When the show was over, David entered into sin. This all could have been avoided if David would been where he was supposed be.

    We need to all get back to church so that we can win the battle of war instead of feeding the flesh.

  18. 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.

    5 And the woman conceived, and sent and told David, and said, I am with child.

    6 And David sent to Joab, saying, Send me Uriah the Hittite. And Joab sent Uriah to David.

    7 And when Uriah was come unto him, David demanded of him how Joab did, and how the people did, and how the war prospered.

    8 And David said to Uriah, Go down to thy house, and wash thy feet. And Uriah departed out of the king’s house, and there followed him a mess of meat from the king.

    9 But Uriah slept at the door of the king’s house with all the servants of his lord, and went not down to his house.

  19. 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.
    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?

    So many things could be avoided if we would learn to not follow that temptation and inquire more. It doesn’t say that David biggest mistake was watching Bathsheba but rather taking time off when he was supposed to be at war but what I see here is him inquiring of something that was nothing to do with him. Sometimes it’s better whenever we don’t take a break or we don’t require more of information of something that has nothing to do with us, but rather we focus on the mission at hand that God has called us to do

  20. 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.”

    “Cover It Up or Confess”
    There is a lot that can be said about this chapter today, BUT is all comes down to the fact that “the thing that David had done Displeased the LORD.”
    He sinned. He committed adultery, tried to “Cover It Up” instead of “Confessing,” got other people involved in his scheme of things, and had a man killed.

    When we sin, or realize we have sinned, we can try to “Cover It Up” from other people, but we must remember God sees and knows all things. St. Luke 12:2 says, “For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known.” and Hebrews 4:13 says, “…: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.” So the best thing we can do, when we sin or realize we have sinned, is “Confess” it before God and get it under the Blood of Jesus. Be Washed, be Cleansed, be Healed, be Restored, be Renewed.

    As the old saying goes, “Confession Is Good For The Soul.”

  21. When the period of mourning was over, David sent for her and brought her to the palace, and she became one of his wives. Then she gave birth to a son. But the Lord was displeased with what David had done.
    2 Samuel 11:27 NLT
    https://bible.com/bible/116/2sa.11.27.NLT

    When we take matters into our own hands we tend to mess things up. The question is why had david even stayed home from battle when he was a man of war? He was out of order and not honoring his duties. When we’re out of order our defenses are down and we are easily ensnared

  22. 12 And David said to Uriah, Tarry here to day also, and to morrow I will let thee depart. So Uriah abode in Jerusalem that day, and the morrow.
    13 And when David had called him, he did eat and drink before him; and he made him drunk: and at even he went out to lie on his bed with the servants of his lord, but went not down to his house.
    14 And it came to pass in the morning, that David wrote a letter to Joab, and sent it by the hand of Uriah.
    15 And he wrote in the letter, saying, Set ye Uriah in the forefront of the hottest battle, and retire ye from him, that he may be smitten, and die.
    16 And it came to pass, when Joab observed the city, that he assigned Uriah unto a place where he knew that valiant men were.
    17 And the men of the city went out, and fought with Joab: and there fell some of the people of the servants of David; and Uriah the Hittite died also.

    David’s sins was lust and murder once conceived becomes death. God was displeased with David for what he had done. I thank Jesus that he died on the cross for me that I can be forgiven for every sin that I might’ve thought or have hidden in my heart. Thank you Jesus for the cross.!

  23. 11 And Uriah said unto David, The ark, and Israel, and Judah, abide in tents; and my lord Joab, and the servants of my lord, are encamped in the open fields; shall I then go into mine house, to eat and to drink, and to lie with my wife? as thou livest, and as thy soul liveth, I will not do this thing.

    Uriah was more valiant than his king in this scenario. David wasn’t even where he should have been -leading his men in battle. He was idle while his armies fought and being idle led him into a temptation that cost a child’s life. That’s a high price to pay for sin when it all could have been avoided by being where he was needed and should have been. Don’t be fooled, our sin will find us out- Jer 16:17.

  24. This chapter shows how sin will take you further than you want to go. One sin leads to another. David sin was to have tragic consequences for him personally, for his own family, and for his nation.

    Psalm 51:10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.

  25. 11:25 ERV. DAVID SAID TO THE MESSENGER.
    “ give this message to Joab” :
    Don’t be too upset about this. A sword can kill one person as well as the next. Make a stronger attack against Rabbah and you will win.
    Encourage Joab with these words.”

    Wow!!! a man of God, a person who has been chosen and anointed….
    So much to it…..It was a time of war, where the king and his army was usually busy , but one day the king
    👉🏼 Felt like staying home. 👉🏼👉🏼👉🏼WRONG!!!!!
    One poor decision will make a chain of poor decisions…
    If it’s not caught on time.( repent and make it right).
    Temptations will come to a man or a woman of God.
    ( opportunities to sin) but we must be ready and be able to discern situations..A very interesting scenario was in front of his eyes, instead of walking away, he entertained himself with it…
    🙏🙏🙏🙏. PRAYER Is the answer.

    WHEN INTEGRITY RUINS MANS PLANS

    8 And David said to Uriah, Go down to thy house, and wash thy feet. And Uriah departed out of the king’s house, and there followed him a mess of meat from the king.
    9 But Uriah slept at the door of the king’s house with all the servants of his lord, and went not down to his house.
    10 And when they had told David, saying, Uriah went not down unto his house, David said unto Uriah, Camest thou not from thy journey? why then didst thou not go down unto thine house?
    11 And Uriah said unto David, The ark, and Israel, and Judah, abide in tents; and my lord Joab, and the servants of my lord, are encamped in the open fields; shall I then go into mine house, to eat and to drink, and to lie with my wife? as thou livest, and as thy soul liveth, I will not do this thing.

    It seems as if much of mans life is spent trying to “cover up” past sins. We see from this chapter that even King David could not out smart GOD. The “cover up” plan was disrupted by the integrity of the warrior Uriah.

    Uriah understands the value of his responsibility and his role as a warrior, soldier and captain. We see poor Leadership from King David and strong Leadership from Captain Uriah.

    David prayed to his flesh instead of GOD when he called for Bathsheba. David was made great because he prayed to GOD and not his flesh in past victories. Prayer is the difference. Seek the LORD First and avoid these perils.

    The INTEGRITY of Uriah RUINED Davids PLANS and GOD was not pleased. We can plan and plot the cover up, BUT GOD knows and sees all things.

    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.

    Repent don’t “cover up”.

  27. It is not enough that David took the life of an innocent man by sending him to the front lines to cover up for David’s sin, but the greatest tragedy is that David displeased the Lord by sinning, and covering that sin.

    Disobedience and dishonesty most of the time go hand in hand. When we find one of the other at work in our lives, we must step back and repent, giving no place to the enemy. If we will keep our eyes on Jesus, guard our hearts and our mind at all times, we can live a life pleasing to the Lord.

    If we converse about something that brings us to place of sin, then we should stop that conversation, but it out of mind, and do our best to avoid it in the future. If going to a specific place causes us to fall for temptation, then don’t go. Choose our friends wisely that they help us in our relationship with God and not harm us.

    Ephesians 3:27 – Neither give place to the devil. Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he.

  28. 5The letter instructed Joab, “Station Uriah on the front lines where the battle is fiercest. Then pull back so that he will be killed.”

    Be careful when others insist of helping you out. They may have a motive, and may not be a good one. People will set you for failure if there is something to gain. Pray about situations, and God will guide you in make good decisions.

  29. “When Uriah’s wife heard that her husband was dead, she mourned for him. When the period of mourning was over, David sent for her and brought her to the palace, and she became one of his wives. Then she gave birth to a son. But the Lord was displeased with what David had done.”
    ‭‭2 Samuel‬ ‭11:26-27‬ ‭NLT‬‬
    David was in that terrible place where he had too much sin in him to be happy in God, but he had too much of God in him to happy in sin. Because David was a man after God’s heart, God drew David to repentance and restoration.

  30. “It was spring. It was the time when kings go off to war. So David sent Joab out with the king’s special troops and the whole army of Israel. They destroyed the Ammonites. They went to the city of Rabbah. They surrounded it and got ready to attack it. But David remained in Jerusalem.”
    ‭‭2 Samuel‬ ‭11:1‬ ‭NIRV‬‬

    If it was a “time when kings go off to war”, I wonder why David didn’t go? Things would have been different. Just a thought…. Now is the prefect time to reach out to people that are in such a mindset of hopelessness, fear and uncertainty. What if today the Bible was still being written and today’s word would read “It was the time when the church would go off to increase the Kingdom of God” Would you rise up and Be Church or sit back and let others increase the Kingdom? The good news is that the Bible is still being written today. We are “epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men.” We have been positioned for this time to increase the Kingdom. Let’s be encouraged to rise up and Be Church. Let’s Live and Give JESUS! Now is the Time!

  31. So the next morning David wrote a letter to Joab and gave it to Uriah to deliver. The letter instructed Joab, “Station Uriah on the front lines where the battle is fiercest. Then pull back so that he will be killed.”
    2 Samuel 11:14‭-‬15 NLT

    Sin will make you do unimaginable things to cover it up. When you give yourself to sin it will tarnish whatever good you have don. We must repent every day because our own flesh is against us.

  32. 26 And when the wife of Uriah heard that Uriah her husband was dead, she mourned for her husband.
    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 has done displeased the Lord.

    David had messed up and made a sin and instead of fixing it he made his sin even bigger by killing and innocent man. He wanted to cover up his sin, but the only one he couldn’t cover it up from was the Lord. See in everything we do every sin we do God will always know he won’t be happy when we do and when we cover it up and turn it into a bigger sin. As the children of God we should realize that we all sin and when we do we should turn our selfs to the Lord and ask for forgiveness. God can turn things around for us especially when we are willing to change ourselves into a better person be the children of God, let God guide you into the right path and let him teach you the right ways.

  33. 14 And it came to pass in the morning, that David wrote a letter to Joab, and sent it by the hand of Uriah.

    Even when the enemy has written our death sentence, The Bible says that Christ died for us to save us from our sins. God always makes a way for us.

  34. “When the period of mourning was over, David sent for her and brought her to the palace, and she became one of his wives. Then she gave birth to a son. But the Lord was displeased with what David had done.”
    ‭‭2 Samuel‬ ‭11:27‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    Sin makes more sin when we don’t repent. We must repent daily and eat His word daily to stop and correct ourselves from sin. One of the worst thing we can do is displease the Lord because of our sins. Turn away when you have fall and let God forgive you.

  35. 11 And Uriah said unto David, The ark, and Israel, and Judah, abide in tents; and my lord Joab, and the servants of my lord, are encamped in the open fields; shall I then go into mine house, to eat and to drink, and to lie with my wife? as thou livest, and as thy soul liveth, I will not do this thing.

    During this chaotic time we are currently living in. What is it that we will choose to do? Stand for the battle or eat and drink? Let us learn from David’s mistakes and the costs it took. To know that God is watching us, and our bad actions displeases Him. So let’s stand up firmly and fight the good battle for the Victory ours!

  36. “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.

    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. And the woman conceived, and sent and told David, and said, I am with child.”
    ‭‭2 Samuel‬ ‭11:2, 4-5‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    Wow look what sin did To David. Let your eyes not be deceive by the world because the world is full of lies and will grant you to distraction. Don’t give up to the lies of the world because the day of the Lord is at hand and we’re about to make it to the other side to walk in streets of gold so when you feel weary and tempted by the things of this world just begin to wake up Jesus and speak peace be still over every temptation and trials.

  37. v27 Sin is serious because it separates us from God now as well as eternally. It will destroy our lives unless someone or something rescues us from its powerful clutches.

  38. And it came to pass, after the year was expired, at the time when kings go forth to battle, that David sent Joab, and his servants with him, and all Israel; and they destroyed the children of Ammon, and besieged Rabbah. But David tarried still at Jerusalem. 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. And David sent and enquired after the woman. And one said, Is not this Bath–sheba, the daughter of Eliam, the wife of Uriah the Hittite?
    2 Samuel 11:1‭-‬3 KJV

    The problem was not the beautiful woman. The problem was not that it was in the evening, in the dark. The problem was leaving your place. Stepping out from your duty or call. That is the key to this sin, failure and temptation. When the kings were supposed to go out to battle. He stayed behind. Then it all went down. When you get out of alignment of your place, where you serve, what your called to do, what you know you should get doing, that when your eyes begin to wonder. The time were you were supposed to be busy doing your duty now is idle and the tempter has found a door.

  39. This chapter shows us just how dangerous a leaders voice can be. We have to be careful of what we say to those who follow us, it could mean life or death. We have to be sure that we are not leading people for our personal gain but rather for the advancement of the Kingdom. David lost sight of fighting for the Kingdom of God and started fighting for his own Kingdom. When we let ourselves ease up from our battle for the Kingdom it is so easy to fight for the wrong one.

  40. “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.”
    ‭‭2 Samuel‬ ‭11:27‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    Acting on impulse to please the flesh will get you in trouble every time. David saw something he wanted and wouldn’t take no or it’s unlawful as an answer. We shouldn’t force someone else to sacrifice just for the sake of our own benefit.

    I thank God He modeled how we should treat others- with a mind to serve, not to look at what’s best for us but for the Kingdom of God. I pray we walk in the Spirit everyday, allowing God to have His way

  41. 17 And the men of the city went out, and fought with Joab: and there fell some of the people of the servants of David; and Uriah the Hittite died also.

    I was always under the impression that David only killed Uriah, but in his attempt to kill Uriah, some of his own soldiers also paid with there lives.

    It funny in our attempt to cover up sin, we have unintended consequences, innocent bystanders pay for our mistakes.

    That is why Gods anger was against David. Besides the fact that all of the people dealing with Uriah from the beginning knew about what David had done.

    Never give place to cover up for sin, is a slippery slope with unintended consequences.

  42. “Then David said to Uriah, “Go dowln to your house and wash your feet.” So Uriah left the palace, and a gift from the king was sent after him. But Uriah slept at the entrance to the palace with all his master’s servants and did not go down to his house.”
    ‭‭2 Samuel‬ ‭11:8-9‬ ‭NIV‬‬

    What a great leader! Uriah wanted to make sure he experienced the war just as his fellow comrades. Sometimes we have to slow down and feel and see things just as those around us do in order full grasp the situation abound us.

  43. 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.

    The flesh got in the way. We have to die daily, and resist temptation. It’s pleasing to the Lord when we turn away from all sin and live righteously.

  44. 2Sa 11:14  And it came to pass in the morning, that David wrote a letter to Joab, and sent it by the hand of Uriah.
    2Sa 11:15  And he wrote in the letter, saying, Set ye Uriah in the forefront of the hottest battle, and retire ye from him, that he may be smitten, and die.
    2Sa 11:16  And it came to pass, when Joab observed the city, that he assigned Uriah unto a place where he knew that valiant men were.

    It never ceases to amaze me how far people will really go to cover their sin, but they could never hide their sin to the one that matters most. Someone like David won’t be able to live with themselves like this very long. This goes to show that we can never get the big head or we could find ourselves covering our sin with just more sin which ultimately leads to death. Because of pride of not wanting anyone to know another mans life was cost and a wife lost a husband. There’s many people at fault here but in this case an altar should’ve been found rather a man being sent to the front lines. Little did this man Uriah know that he would be in one of the most important lessons in history.

  45. Justify…

    When you have to justify your actions, you know you are wrong.
    “Then David said unto the messenger, Thus shalt thou say unto Joab, Let not this thing displease thee, for the sword devoureth one as well as another: make thy battle more strong against the city, and overthrow it: and encourage thou him.”
    ‭‭2 Samuel‬ ‭11:25‬ ‭KJV‬‬
    David knew he is wrong when he took Bathsheba, called Uriah home, and had Uriah killed.

    It’s still the same today. If someone does something they shouldn’t, they try to justify why they are right.

  46. 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.
    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?

    The first step in the wrong direction is when that second look or second guess is made. Once we see sin and have the thought to indulge in that sin, we must push the thought of it away. Push it away as far as possible. When we decide to act on it or even just play with the idea of it is when we go too far.

    26 And when the wife of Uriah heard that Uriah her husband was dead, she mourned for her husband.
    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.

    Just because we feel as though we have amended the situation or as so many of us say “fixed it” or “made the situation better”, does not always ring true. David covered up his sin of adultery and so no one would know that the child was his, he had Uriah killed, After Uriah wouldn’t sleep in his own home. He then took Bathsheeba as a bride. Two wrongs do not make a right. These things did not “Fix” the situation. God was still not happy with him. “But the thing that David had done displeased the Lord.” Our way may make sense to us, but does not always make sense to Him.

  47. 17 And the men of the city went out, and fought with Joab: and there fell some of the people of the servants of David; and Uriah the Hittite died also.

    Sin is sin and not matter what it will lead to death. Maybe not physically like here but spiritually. David was willing to do the extreme to murdering not only Uriah but his own people also. Sin will drive you to do things that you never think you will do. Be careful in listening to the list of the enemy.
