Chapter 12

  1. 1. And the LORD
    H3068
    sent
    H7971
    Nathan
    H5416
    unto David.
    H1732
    And he came
    H935
    unto him, and said
    H559
    unto him, There were two
    H8147
    men
    H582
    in one
    H259
    city;
    H5892
    the one
    H259
    rich,
    H6223
    and the other
    H259
    poor.
    H7326
  2. 2. The rich
    H6223
    man had exceeding
    H3966
    many
    H7235
    flocks
    H6629
    and herds:
    H1241
  3. 3. But the poor
    H7326
    man had nothing, save one
    H259
    little
    H6996
    ewe lamb,
    H3535
    which he had bought
    H7069
    and nourished up:
    H2421
    and it grew up
    H1431
    together
    H3162
    with him, and with his children;
    H1121
    it did eat
    H398
    of his own meat,
    H6595
    and drank
    H8354
    of his own cup,
    H3563
    and lay
    H7901
    in his bosom,
    H2436
    and was unto him as a daughter.
    H1323
  4. 4. And there came
    H935
    a traveller
    H1982
    unto the rich
    H6223
    man,
    H376
    and he spared
    H2550
    to take
    H3947
    of his own flock
    H6629
    and of his own herd,
    H1241
    to dress
    H6213
    for the wayfaring man
    H732
    that was come
    H935
    unto him; but took
    H3947
    the poor
    H7326
    man's
    H376
    lamb,
    H3535
    and dressed
    H6213
    it for the man
    H376
    that was come
    H935
    to him.
  5. 5. And David's
    H1732
    anger
    H639
    was greatly
    H3966
    kindled
    H2734
    against the man;
    H376
    and he said
    H559
    to Nathan,
    H5416
    As the LORD
    H3068
    liveth,
    H2416
    the man
    H376
    that hath done
    H6213
    this thing shall surely
    H1121
    die:
    H4194
  6. 6. And he shall restore
    H7999
    the lamb
    H3535
    fourfold,
    H706
    because
    H6118
    he did
    H6213
    this thing,
    H1697
    and because
    H834
    he had no pity.
    H2550
  7. 7. And Nathan
    H5416
    said
    H559
    to David,
    H1732
    Thou art the man.
    H376
    Thus saith
    H559
    the LORD
    H3068
    God
    H430
    of Israel,
    H3478
    I anointed
    H4886
    thee king
    H4428
    over Israel,
    H3478
    and I delivered
    H5337
    thee out of the hand
    H3027
    of Saul;
    H7586
  8. 8. And I gave
    H5414
    thee thy master's
    H113
    house,
    H1004
    and thy master's
    H113
    wives
    H802
    into thy bosom,
    H2436
    and gave
    H5414
    thee the house
    H1004
    of Israel
    H3478
    and of Judah;
    H3063
    and if that had been too little,
    H4592
    I would moreover have given
    H3254
    unto thee such
    H2007
    and such things.
    H2007
  9. 9. Wherefore hast thou despised
    H959
    the commandment
    H1697
    of the LORD,
    H3068
    to do
    H6213
    evil
    H7451
    in his sight?
    H5869
    thou hast killed
    H5221
    Uriah
    H223
    the Hittite
    H2850
    with the sword,
    H2719
    and hast taken
    H3947
    his wife
    H802
    to be thy wife,
    H802
    and hast slain
    H2026
    him with the sword
    H2719
    of the children
    H1121
    of Ammon.
    H5983
  10. 10. Now therefore the sword
    H2719
    shall never
    H5769
    H5704
    depart
    H5493
    from thine house;
    H1004
    because
    H6118
    thou hast despised
    H959
    me, and hast taken
    H3947
    the wife
    H802
    of Uriah
    H223
    the Hittite
    H2850
    to be thy wife.
    H802
  11. 11. Thus saith
    H559
    the LORD,
    H3068
    Behold, I will raise up
    H6965
    evil
    H7451
    against thee out of thine own house,
    H1004
    and I will take
    H3947
    thy wives
    H802
    before thine eyes,
    H5869
    and give
    H5414
    them unto thy neighbour,
    H7453
    and he shall lie
    H7901
    with thy wives
    H802
    in the sight
    H5869
    of this sun.
    H8121
  12. 12. For thou didst
    H6213
    it secretly:
    H5643
    but I will do
    H6213
    this thing
    H1697
    before all Israel,
    H3478
    and before the sun.
    H8121
  13. 13. And David
    H1732
    said
    H559
    unto Nathan,
    H5416
    I have sinned
    H2398
    against the LORD.
    H3068
    And Nathan
    H5416
    said
    H559
    unto David,
    H1732
    The LORD
    H3068
    also hath put away
    H5674
    thy sin;
    H2403
    thou shalt not die.
    H4191
  14. 14. Howbeit,
    H657
    because by this deed
    H1697
    thou hast given
    H5006
    great occasion
    H5006
    to the enemies
    H341
    of the LORD
    H3068
    to blaspheme,
    H5006
    the child
    H1121
    also that is born
    H3209
    unto thee shall surely
    H4191
    die.
    H4191
  15. 15. And Nathan
    H5416
    departed
    H3212
    unto his house.
    H1004
    And the LORD
    H3068
    struck
    H5062
    the child
    H3206
    that Uriah's
    H223
    wife
    H802
    bare
    H3205
    unto David,
    H1732
    and it was very sick.
    H605
  16. 16. David
    H1732
    therefore besought
    H1245
    God
    H430
    for the child;
    H5288
    and David
    H1732
    fasted,
    H6684
    H6685
    and went in,
    H935
    and lay
    H7901
    all night
    H3885
    upon the earth.
    H776
  17. 17. And the elders
    H2205
    of his house
    H1004
    arose,
    H6965
    and went to him, to raise him up
    H6965
    from the earth:
    H776
    but he would
    H14
    not, neither did he eat
    H1262
    bread
    H3899
    with them.
  18. 18. And it came to pass on the seventh
    H7637
    day,
    H3117
    that the child
    H3206
    died.
    H4191
    And the servants
    H5650
    of David
    H1732
    feared
    H3372
    to tell
    H5046
    him that the child
    H3206
    was dead:
    H4191
    for they said,
    H559
    Behold, while the child
    H3206
    was yet alive,
    H2416
    we spake
    H1696
    unto him, and he would not hearken
    H8085
    unto our voice:
    H6963
    how will he then
    H6213
    vex
    H7451
    himself,
    H6213
    if we tell
    H559
    him that the child
    H3206
    is dead?
    H4191
  19. 19. But when David
    H1732
    saw
    H7200
    that his servants
    H5650
    whispered,
    H3907
    David
    H1732
    perceived
    H995
    that the child
    H3206
    was dead:
    H4191
    therefore David
    H1732
    said
    H559
    unto his servants,
    H5650
    Is the child
    H3206
    dead?
    H4191
    And they said,
    H559
    He is dead.
    H4191
  20. 20. Then David
    H1732
    arose
    H6965
    from the earth,
    H776
    and washed,
    H7364
    and anointed
    H5480
    himself, and changed
    H2498
    his apparel,
    H8071
    and came
    H935
    into the house
    H1004
    of the LORD,
    H3068
    and worshipped:
    H7812
    then he came
    H935
    to his own house;
    H1004
    and when he required,
    H7592
    they set
    H7760
    bread
    H3899
    before him, and he did eat.
    H398
  21. 21. Then said
    H559
    his servants
    H5650
    unto him, What thing
    H1697
    is this that thou hast done?
    H6213
    thou didst fast
    H6684
    and weep
    H1058
    for the child,
    H3206
    while it was alive;
    H2416
    but when the child
    H3206
    was dead,
    H4191
    thou didst rise
    H6965
    and eat
    H398
    bread.
    H3899
  22. 22. And he said,
    H559
    While the child
    H3206
    was yet alive,
    H2416
    I fasted
    H6684
    and wept:
    H1058
    for I said,
    H559
    Who can tell
    H3045
    whether GOD
    H3068
    will be gracious
    H2603
    H2603
    to me, that the child
    H3206
    may live?
    H2416
  23. 23. But now he is dead,
    H4191
    wherefore should I fast?
    H6684
    can
    H3201
    I bring him back again?
    H7725
    I shall go
    H1980
    to him, but he shall not return
    H7725
    to me.
  24. 24. And David
    H1732
    comforted
    H5162
    Bathsheba
    H1339
    his wife,
    H802
    and went in
    H935
    unto her, and lay
    H7901
    with her: and she bare
    H3205
    a son,
    H1121
    and he called
    H7121
    his name
    H8034
    Solomon:
    H8010
    and the LORD
    H3068
    loved
    H157
    him.
  25. 25. And he sent
    H7971
    by the hand
    H3027
    of Nathan
    H5416
    the prophet;
    H5030
    and he called
    H7121
    his name
    H8034
    Jedidiah,
    H3041
    because of the LORD.
    H3068
  26. 26. And Joab
    H3097
    fought
    H3898
    against Rabbah
    H7237
    of the children
    H1121
    of Ammon,
    H5983
    and took
    H3920
    the royal
    H4410
    city.
    H5892
  27. 27. And Joab
    H3097
    sent
    H7971
    messengers
    H4397
    to David,
    H1732
    and said,
    H559
    I have fought
    H3898
    against Rabbah,
    H7237
    and have taken
    H3920
    the city
    H5892
    of waters.
    H4325
  28. 28. Now therefore gather
    H622
    the rest
    H3499
    of the people
    H5971
    together,
    H622
    and encamp
    H2583
    against the city,
    H5892
    and take
    H3920
    it: lest I take
    H3920
    the city,
    H5892
    and it be called
    H7121
    after my name.
    H8034
  29. 29. And David
    H1732
    gathered
    H622
    all the people
    H5971
    together,
    H622
    and went
    H3212
    to Rabbah,
    H7237
    and fought
    H3898
    against it, and took
    H3920
    it.
  30. 30. And he took
    H3947
    their king's
    H4428
    crown
    H5850
    from off his head,
    H7218
    the weight
    H4948
    whereof was a talent
    H3603
    of gold
    H2091
    with the precious
    H3368
    stones:
    H68
    and it was set on David's
    H1732
    head.
    H7218
    And he brought forth
    H3318
    the spoil
    H7998
    of the city
    H5892
    in great
    H3966
    abundance.
    H7235
  31. 31. And he brought forth
    H3318
    the people
    H5971
    that were therein, and put
    H7760
    them under saws,
    H4050
    and under harrows
    H2757
    of iron,
    H1270
    and under axes
    H4037
    of iron,
    H1270
    and made them pass
    H5674
    through the brickkiln:
    H4404
    and thus did
    H6213
    he unto all the cities
    H5892
    of the children
    H1121
    of Ammon.
    H5983
    So David
    H1732
    and all the people
    H5971
    returned
    H7725
    unto Jerusalem.
