Bible: 2 Samuel 12:10-14

12:10 So now the sword will never depart from your house. For you have despised me by taking the wife of Uriah the Hittite as your own!’ 12:11 This is what the Lord says: ‘I am about to bring disaster on you 1  from inside your own household! 2  Right before your eyes I will take your wives and hand them over to your companion. 3  He will have sexual relations with 4  your wives in broad daylight! 5  12:12 Although you have acted in secret, I will do this thing before all Israel, and in broad daylight.’ 6 

12:13 Then David exclaimed to Nathan, “I have sinned against the Lord!” Nathan replied to David, “Yes, and the Lord has forgiven 7  your sin. You are not going to die. 12:14 Nonetheless, because you have treated the Lord with such contempt 8  in this matter, the son who has been born to you will certainly die.”
