(61) David & Bathsheba

One late afternoon,
while David's army was at war, fighting against Ammonites,
David stayed back in Jerusalem; taking a nap.
When he woke up ,
he went for a walk on the roof of the palace.
As he looked out, he saw a beautiful woman taking a bath.
David brought her into his palace and slept with her,
even though she was married already.
and When David learned that she became pregnant,
he began to plot to cover his evil deed.
But his plans did not quite work,
so David ended up killing Bathsheba's husband
by sending him into the battle by himself.
When Bathsheba heard that her husband was dead,
she cried for him.
David brought her into the palace and
she became one of his wives.
She also gave birth to a son.
God was very angry with David
for what he had done.
