1 H8141 And it came to pass, after the year H8666 had ended, H6256 at the time H4428 H4397 [H8675] when kings H3318 [H8800] go forth H1732 to battle, that David H7971 [H8799] sent H3097 Joab, H5650 and his servants H3478 with him, and all Israel; H7843 [H8686] and they decayed H1121 the sons H5983 of Ammon, H6696 [H8799] and besieged H7237 Rabbah. H1732 But David H3427 [H8802] tarried still H3389 at Jerusalem.
2 H6153 H6256 And it came to pass in an evening, H1732 that David H6965 [H8799] arose H4904 from off his bed, H1980 [H8691] and walked H1406 upon the roof H4428 of the king's H1004 house: H1406 and from the roof H7200 [H8799] he saw H802 a woman H7364 [H8801] washing H802 herself; and the woman H3966 was very H2896 beautiful H4758 to look upon.
3 H1732 And David H7971 [H8799] sent H1875 [H8799] and enquired H802 after the woman. H559 [H8799] And one said, H1339 Is not this Bathsheba, H1323 the daughter H463 of Eliam, H802 the wife H223 of Uriah H2850 the Hittite?
4 H1732 And David H7971 [H8799] sent H4397 messengers, H3947 [H8799] and took H935 [H8799] her; and she came in H7901 [H8799] to him, and he lay H6942 [H8693] with her; for she was purified H2932 from her uncleanness: H7725 [H8799] and she returned H1004 to her house.
5 H802 And the woman H2029 [H8799] conceived, H7971 [H8799] and sent H5046 [H8686] and told H1732 David, H559 [H8799] and said, H2030 I am with child.
6 H1732 And David H7971 [H8799] sent H3097 to Joab, H7971 [H8798] saying, Send H223 me Uriah H2850 the Hittite. H3097 And Joab H7971 [H8799] sent H223 Uriah H1732 to David.
7 H223 And when Uriah H935 [H8799] had come H1732 to him, David H7592 [H8799] enquired H3097 of him how Joab H7965 did, H5971 and how the people H7965 did, H4421 and how the war H7965 prospered.
8 H1732 And David H559 [H8799] said H223 to Uriah, H3381 [H8798] Go down H1004 to thy house, H7364 [H8798] and wash H7272 thy feet. H223 And Uriah H3318 [H8799] departed out H4428 of the king's H1004 house, H310 and there followed H4864 him a present H4428 from the king.
9 H223 But Uriah H7901 [H8799] slept H6607 at the door H4428 of the king's H1004 house H5650 with all the servants H113 of his lord, H3381 [H8804] and went not down H1004 to his house.
