2 Samuel 11

JUB 1 And it came to pass, after the year was expired, at the time when kings go forth <em>to battle</em>, that David sent Joab and his slaves with him and all Israel, and they destroyed the sons of Ammon and besieged Rabbah. But David tarried still at Jerusalem. NIV 1 In the spring, at the time when kings go off to war, David sent Joab out with the king’s men and the whole Israelite army. They destroyed the Ammonites and besieged Rabbah. But David remained in Jerusalem. JUB 2 And it came to pass one evening, 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 <em>was</em> very beautiful to look upon. NIV 2 One evening David got up from his bed and walked around on the roof of the palace. From the roof he saw a woman bathing. The woman was very beautiful, JUB 3 And David sent and enquired after the woman. And <em>one</em> said, <em>Is</em> not this Bathsheba, the daughter of Eliam, the wife of Uriah, the Hittite? NIV 3 and David sent someone to find out about her. The man said, “She is Bathsheba, the daughter of Eliam and the wife of Uriah the Hittite.” JUB 4 And David sent messengers and took her, and she came in unto him, and he lay with her. Then she purified herself from her uncleanness, and she returned unto her house. NIV 4 Then David sent messengers to get her. She came to him, and he slept with her. (Now she was purifying herself from her monthly uncleanness.) Then she went back home. JUB 5 And the woman conceived and sent and told David and said, I <em>am</em> with child. NIV 5 The woman conceived and sent word to David, saying, “I am pregnant.” JUB 6 Then David sent to Joab, <em>saying</em>, Send me Uriah the Hittite. And Joab sent Uriah to David. NIV 6 So David sent this word to Joab: “Send me Uriah the Hittite.” And Joab sent him to David. JUB 7 And when Uriah had come unto him, David asked <em>him</em> how Joab was and how the people were and how the war prospered. NIV 7 When Uriah came to him, David asked him how Joab was, how the soldiers were and how the war was going. JUB 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 royal food was sent unto him. NIV 8 Then David said to Uriah, “Go down to your house and wash your feet.” So Uriah left the palace, and a gift from the king was sent after him. JUB 9 But Uriah slept at the door of the king’s house with all the slaves of his lord and did not go down to his house. NIV 9 But Uriah slept at the entrance to the palace with all his master’s servants and did not go down to his house. JUB 10 And when they had told David, saying, Uriah did not go down unto his house, David said unto Uriah, Didst thou not come from <em>thy</em> journey? Why <em>then</em> didst thou not go down to thy house? NIV 10 David was told, “Uriah did not go home.” So he asked Uriah, “Haven’t you just come from a military campaign? Why didn’t you go home?” JUB 11 And Uriah said unto David, The ark and Israel and Judah abide in tents, and my lord Joab and the slaves of my lord, are encamped in the open fields; shall I then go into my house, to eat and to drink and to lie with my wife? <em>By thy</em> life and <em>by</em> the life of thy soul, I will not do this thing. NIV 11 Uriah said to David, “The ark and Israel and Judah are staying in tents, and my commander Joab and my lord’s men are camped in the open country. How could I go to my house to eat and drink and make love to my wife? As surely as you live, I will not do such a thing!” JUB 12 And David said to Uriah, Tarry here today also, and tomorrow I will let thee depart. So Uriah abode in Jerusalem that day and the next day. NIV 12 Then David said to him, “Stay here one more day, and tomorrow I will send you back.” So Uriah remained in Jerusalem that day and the next. JUB 13 And when David had called him, he ate and drank before him, and he made him drunk; and in the evening he went out to lie on his bed with the slaves of his lord but did not go down to his house. NIV 13 At David’s invitation, he ate and drank with him, and David made him drunk. But in the evening Uriah went out to sleep on his mat among his master’s servants; he did not go home. JUB 14 And it came to pass in the morning, that David wrote a letter to Joab and sent <em>it</em> by the hand of Uriah. NIV 14 In the morning David wrote a letter to Joab and sent it with Uriah. JUB 15 And he wrote in the letter, saying, Set Uriah in the forefront of the hottest battle and retire from him, that he may be smitten and die. NIV 15 In it he wrote, “Put Uriah out in front where the fighting is fiercest. Then withdraw from him so he will be struck down and die.” JUB 16 And it came to pass, when Joab observed the city, that he assigned Uriah unto a place where he knew that the most valiant men <em>were</em>. NIV 16 So while Joab had the city under siege, he put Uriah at a place where he knew the strongest defenders were. JUB 17 And the men of the city came out and fought with Joab, and <em>some</em> of the people of the slaves of David fell, and Uriah the Hittite died also. NIV 17 When the men of the city came out and fought against Joab, some of the men in David’s army fell; moreover, Uriah the Hittite died. JUB 18 Then Joab sent and told David all the things concerning the war NIV 18 Joab sent David a full account of the battle. JUB 19 and charged the messenger, saying, When thou hast finished telling the matters of the war unto the king, NIV 19 He instructed the messenger: “When you have finished giving the king this account of the battle, JUB 20 and if the king begins to be angry and he should say unto thee, Why did you approach so near unto the city when ye fought? Did ye not know that which they can throw down from the wall? NIV 20 the king’s anger may flare up, and he may ask you, ‘Why did you get so close to the city to fight? Didn’t you know they would shoot arrows from the wall? JUB 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 did you go near the wall? Then thou shalt say, Thy slave Uriah, the Hittite, is dead also. NIV 21 Who killed Abimelek son of Jerub-Besheth ? Didn’t a woman drop an upper millstone on him from the wall, so that he died in Thebez? Why did you get so close to the wall?’ If he asks you this, then say to him, ‘Moreover, your servant Uriah the Hittite is dead.’ ” JUB 22 So the messenger went and came and told David all that Joab had sent him for. NIV 22 The messenger set out, and when he arrived he told David everything Joab had sent him to say. JUB 23 And the messenger said unto David, Surely the men prevailed against us and came out unto us into the field, and we made them retreat unto the entering of the gate. NIV 23 The messenger said to David, “The men overpowered us and came out against us in the open, but we drove them back to the entrance of the city gate. JUB 24 And the archers shot from off the wall upon thy slaves, and <em>some</em> of the king’s slaves are dead, and thy slave Uriah, the Hittite, is dead also. NIV 24 Then the archers shot arrows at your servants from the wall, and some of the king’s men died. Moreover, your servant Uriah the Hittite is dead.” JUB 25 Then David said unto the messenger, Thus shalt thou say unto Joab, Let not this thing displease thee, for the sword devours one as well as another; strengthen the battle against the city until it is overthrown and encourage thou him. NIV 25 David told the messenger, “Say this to Joab: ‘Don’t let this upset you; the sword devours one as well as another. Press the attack against the city and destroy it.’ Say this to encourage Joab.” JUB 26 And when the wife of Uriah heard that Uriah, her husband, was dead, she mourned for her husband. NIV 26 When Uriah’s wife heard that her husband was dead, she mourned for him. JUB 27 And when the mourning was past, David sent and brought her to his house, and she became his wife and gave birth to a son unto him. But the thing that David had done displeased the LORD. NIV 27 After the time of mourning was over, David had her brought to his house, and she became his wife and bore him a son. But the thing David had done displeased the LORD.
