In 2 Samuel 11-12, David is responsible for most of the action in the narrative. This narrative focuses on David’s sins and his repentance. This whole verse focuses on his adultery and murder. It begins the story of the battle, where kings are meant to fight with their soliders, yet timid David, stayed behind. David encounters temptation when he was on the roof of his palace and saw a woman bathing. David looked at Bathsheba and said “beauty” but God saw this as ugly . The pleasures of sin deceive us like the bait hides the hook. We must call it what God calls it – sin. We want to say “affair” but God says “adultery.” We want to say “love” but God says “lust.” We want to say “sexy” but God says “sin.” We want to say “romantic” but God says “ruin.” We want to say “destiny” but God says “destruction.” Then David pursues his temptation by laying with her, and soon she conceived with his child. In attempt to cover his sin, David murders Uriah; he sends Uriah to battle with his own death sentence in hand.
