2 Samuel 10-11. Dealing with Disgrace, David & Batsheva. David's messengers to Ammon are publicly embarrassed and disgraced. Such behavior was a personal insult to David. The response was war and the subjugation of Ammon. After this as war continues, David meets Batsheva. There was no adultery here. There is no scriptural reference to Batsheva, in any way, being an unwilling participant in this liaison. Batsheva's behavior is even more suspect than that of David. Uriah is true to the military protocol and refuses intimacies with a woman, who during warfare, he is technically not married to. To cover the affair, David seeks to have Uriah removed, but not to protect himself, for no one knows that he is the father, but rather to protect Batsheva. The story here has some interesting twists and turns that most have never thought of.
