And the LORDH3068 sentH7971 NathanH5416 to David.H1732 And he cameH935 to him, and saidH559 to him, There were twoH8147 menH582 in oneH259 city;H5892 the oneH259 rich,H6223 and the otherH259 poor.H7326
The richH6223 man hadH1961 exceedingH3966 manyH7235 flocksH6629 and herds:H1241
But the poorH7326 man had nothing,H369 H3605 saveH3588 H518 oneH259 littleH6996 eweH3535 lamb,H3535 whichH834 he had boughtH7069 and nourishedH2421 up: and it grewH1431 up togetherH3162 with him, and with his children;H1121 it did eatH398 of his own meat,H6595 and drankH8354 of his own cup,H3563 and layH7901 in his bosom,H2436 and was to him as a daughter.H1323
And there cameH935 a travelerH1982 to the richH6223 man,H376 and he sparedH2550 to takeH3947 of his own flockH6629 and of his own herd,H1241 to dressH6213 for the wayfaringH732 man that was comeH935 to him; but tookH3947 the poorH7326 man'sH376 lamb,H3535 and dressedH6213 it for the manH376 that was comeH935 to him.
And David'sH1732 angerH639 was greatlyH3966 kindledH2734 against the man;H376 and he saidH559 to Nathan,H5416 As the LORDH3068 lives,H2416 the manH376 that has doneH6213 thisH2063 thing shall surely die:H4194
And he shall restoreH7999 the lambH3535 fourfold,H706 becauseH6118 H834 he didH6213 thisH2088 thing,H1697 and becauseH5921 H834 he had noH3808 pity.H2550
And NathanH5416 saidH559 to David,H1732 You are the man.H376 ThusH3541 saidH559 the LORDH3068 GodH430 of Israel,H3478 I anointedH4886 you kingH4428 overH5921 Israel,H3478 and I deliveredH5337 you out of the handH3027 of Saul;H7586
And I gaveH5414 you your master'sH113 house,H1004 and your master'sH113 wivesH802 into your bosom,H2436 and gaveH5414 you the houseH1004 of IsraelH3478 and of Judah;H3063 and ifH518 that had been too little,H4592 I would moreoverH3254 have givenH3254 to you suchH2007 and suchH2007 things.
WhyH4069 have you despisedH959 the commandmentH1697 of the LORD,H3068 to doH6213 evilH7451 in his sight?H5869 you have killedH5221 UriahH223 the HittiteH2850 with the sword,H2719 and have takenH3947 his wifeH802 to be your wife,H802 and have slainH2026 him with the swordH2719 of the childrenH1121 of Ammon.H5983
NowH6258 therefore the swordH2719 shall neverH3808 departH5493 from your house;H1004 becauseH6118 H3588 you have despisedH959 me, and have takenH3947 the wifeH802 of UriahH223 the HittiteH2850 to be your wife.H802
ThusH3541 saidH559 the LORD,H3068 Behold,H2005 I will raiseH6965 up evilH7451 againstH5921 you out of your own house,H1004 and I will takeH3947 your wivesH802 before your eyes,H5869 and giveH5414 them to your neighbor,H7453 and he shall lieH7901 with your wivesH802 in the sightH5869 of thisH2063 sun.H8121
For you didH6213 it secretly:H5643 but I will doH6213 thisH2088 thingH1697 beforeH5048 allH3605 Israel,H3478 and beforeH5048 the sun.H8121
And DavidH1732 saidH559 to Nathan,H5416 I have sinnedH2398 against the LORD.H3068 And NathanH5416 saidH559 to David,H1732 The LORDH3068 alsoH1571 has putH5674 awayH5674 your sin;H2403 you shall not die.H4191
However,H657 becauseH3588 by thisH2088 deedH1697 you have given greatH5006 occasion to the enemiesH341 of the LORDH3068 to blaspheme,H5006 the childH1121 alsoH1571 that is bornH3209 to you shall surely die.H4191
And NathanH5416 departedH3212 to his house.H1004 And the LORDH3068 struckH5062 the childH3206 that Uriah'sH223 wifeH802 boreH3205 to David,H1732 and it was very sick.H605
DavidH1732 therefore soughtH1245 GodH430 for the child;H5288 and DavidH1732 fasted,H6684 and wentH935 in, and layH7901 allH3885 night on the earth.H776
And the eldersH2205 of his houseH1004 arose,H6965 and went to him, to raiseH6965 him up from the earth:H776 but he wouldH14 not, neitherH3808 did he eatH1262 breadH3899 with them.
And it cameH1961 to pass on the seventhH7637 day,H3117 that the childH3206 died.H4191 And the servantsH5650 of DavidH1732 fearedH3372 to tellH5046 him that the childH3206 was dead:H4191 for they said,H559 Behold,H2009 while the childH3206 was yet alive,H2416 we spokeH1696 to him, and he would not listenH8085 to our voice:H6963 howH349 will he then vexH6213 H7451 himself, if we tellH559 him that the childH3206 is dead?H4191
But when DavidH1732 sawH7200 that his servantsH5650 whispered,H3907 DavidH1732 perceivedH995 that the childH3206 was dead:H4191 therefore DavidH1732 saidH559 to his servants,H5650 Is the childH3206 dead?H4191 And they said,H559 He is dead.H4191
Then DavidH1732 aroseH6965 from the earth,H776 and washed,H7364 and anointedH5480 himself, and changedH2498 his apparel,H8071 and cameH935 into the houseH1004 of the LORD,H3068 and worshipped:H7812 then he cameH935 to his own house;H1004 and when he required,H7592 they setH7760 breadH3899 before him, and he did eat.H398
Then saidH559 his servantsH5650 to him, WhatH4100 thingH1697 is thisH2088 that you have done?H6213 you did fastH6684 and weepH1058 for the child,H3206 while it was alive;H2416 but whenH834 the childH3206 was dead,H4191 you did riseH6965 and eatH398 bread.H3899
And he said,H559 While the childH3206 was yetH5750 alive,H2416 I fastedH6684 and wept:H1058 for I said,H559 WhoH4310 can tellH3045 whether GODH3068 will be graciousH2603 to me, that the childH3206 may live?H2416
But nowH6258 he is dead,H4191 whyH4100 should I fast?H6684 canH3201 I bringH7725 him backH7725 again?H5750 I shall goH1980 to him, but he shall not returnH7725 to me.
And DavidH1732 comfortedH5162 BathshebaH1339 his wife,H802 and wentH935 in to her, and layH7901 with her: and she boreH3205 a son,H1121 and he calledH7121 his nameH8034 Solomon:H8010 and the LORDH3068 lovedH157 him.
And he sentH7971 by the handH3027 of NathanH5416 the prophet;H5030 and he calledH7121 his nameH8034 Jedidiah,H3041 becauseH5668 of the LORD.H3068
And JoabH3097 foughtH3898 against RabbahH7237 of the childrenH1121 of Ammon,H5983 and tookH3920 the royalH4410 city.H5892
And JoabH3097 sentH7971 messengersH4397 to David,H1732 and said,H559 I have foughtH3898 against Rabbah,H7237 and have takenH3920 the cityH5892 of waters.H4325
NowH6258 therefore gatherH622 the restH3499 of the peopleH5971 together, and encampH2583 againstH5921 the city,H5892 and takeH3920 it: lestH6435 I takeH3920 the city,H5892 and it be calledH7121 afterH5921 my name.H8034
And DavidH1732 gatheredH622 allH3605 the peopleH5971 together, and wentH3212 to Rabbah,H7237 and foughtH3898 against it, and tookH3920 it.
And he tookH3947 their king'sH4428 crownH5850 from offH5921 his head,H7218 the weightH4948 whereof was a talentH3603 of goldH2091 with the preciousH3368 stones:H68 and it was set onH5921 David'sH1732 head.H7218 And he broughtH3318 forthH3318 the spoilH7998 of the cityH5892 in greatH3966 abundance.H7235
And he broughtH3318 forthH3318 the peopleH5971 that were therein, and putH7760 them under saws,H4050 and under harrowsH2757 of iron,H1270 and under axesH4037 of iron,H1270 and made them passH5674 through the brick-kiln:H4404 and thusH3651 didH6213 he to allH3605 the citiesH5892 of the childrenH1121 of Ammon.H5983 So DavidH1732 and allH3605 the peopleH5971 returnedH7725 to Jerusalem.H3389
