The scenario of David, Bathsheba, Uriah, Joab and Jedidiah (Solomon. Why don’t we call him by Jedidiah-loved by God?)) is absolutely ineriguinging. I’ve taught on it several times and every time I read the encounter I’m still intrigued. This time I got stopped at the point in the situation where David & Bathsheba’s first son dies because GOD took the boy’s life in judgment against David’s sin. The Lord tells David in verse nine that the evil he did was having Uriah struck down by an enemy sword and taking his wife to be his own. Why didn’t God mention the adultery that took place initially?
