12:7 Nathan said to David, “You are that man! This is what the Lord God of Israel says: ‘I chose 1 you to be king over Israel and I rescued you from the hand of Saul. 12:8 I gave you your master’s house, and put your master’s wives into your arms. 2 I also gave you the house of Israel and Judah. And if all that somehow seems insignificant, I would have given you so much more as well! 12:9 Why have you shown contempt for the word of the Lord by doing evil in my 3 sight? You have struck down Uriah the Hittite with the sword and you have taken his wife as your own! 4 You have killed him with the sword of the Ammonites.
