Bible: 2 Samuel 12:7-12

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. 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 5  from inside your own household! 6  Right before your eyes I will take your wives and hand them over to your companion. 7  He will have sexual relations with 8  your wives in broad daylight! 9  12:12 Although you have acted in secret, I will do this thing before all Israel, and in broad daylight.’ 10
