:B:1 So Yahweh sent the pro phet Nathan to David. Na than went to the king and said to him, There were two men in a city: one was rich
5 David was furious because of this man and told Nathan, As Yah weh lives, the man who has done this deserves death! 6 He must return the lamb fourfold for acting like this and showing no compassion.
7 Nathan said to David, You are this man! It is Yahweh, God of Israel, who speaks: I anointed you king over Israel and saved you from Sauls hands
11 Thus says Yahweh: Your misfortune will rise from your own house! I will take your wives from you and give them to your neighbor who shall lie with them in broad daylight. 12 What you did was done secretly, but what I do will be done before Israel in broad daylight.
13 David said to Nathan, I have sinned against Yahweh. Nathan answered him, Yahweh has forgiven your sin
:B:15 Yahweh struck the child that Uriahs wife bore to David and it became sick. 16 David entreated God for the child
19 When David saw his servants whispering to one another, he realized that the child was dead and asked them, Is the child dead? They replied, He is dead. 20 Then David rose from the ground, washed and anointed himself, and changed his clothes. He entered the house of Yahweh and worshiped.
20 After that, he went to his own house, asked for food and ate. 21 Then his servants asked him, Why are you acting like this? You fasted and wept for the child while it was alive
24 David comforted his wife Bath sheba. He went in and slept with her and she bore a son whom he named Solomon. Yahweh loved him 25 and made it known through Nathan the prophet, who named him Jedidiah on Yahwehs behalf.
26 Joab fought against Rabbah of the Ammonites and conquered the kings city. 27 Then he sent messengers to David and told him, I have fought against Rabbah and conquered the city of waters. 28 Gather then the rest of the peo ple to attack and capture the city lest I my self do it and the city be called by my name. 29 So David mustered the people, attacked and captured Rabbah. 30 He took the crown of their god Milkom from its head, the weight of which was a talent of gold, and which had a precious stone embedded in it. This they put on Davids head. He carried off an amount of booty 31 and brought away the people whom he set to labor with saws, iron picks and iron axes, making them work at the brick-kilns. David dealt like this with all the Ammonite cities, then he returned to Jerusalem with all the people.
