Bible: 2 Samuel 11:14-17

11:14 In the morning David wrote a letter to Joab and sent it with Uriah. 11:15 In the letter he wrote: “Station Uriah in the thick of the battle and then withdraw from him so he will be cut down and killed.”

11:16 So as Joab kept watch on the city, he stationed Uriah at the place where he knew the best enemy soldiers 1  were. 11:17 When the men of the city came out and fought with Joab, some of David’s soldiers 2  fell in battle. Uriah the Hittite also died.
