Word American Tract Society - Definition
BATH-SHEBA The wife of Uriah, and probably granddaughter of Atithophel which see. David first committed adultery with her, then caused her husband to be slain, and afterwards took her to wife. These sins displeased Jehovah, who sent the prophet Nathan to David, with the parable of the ewe lamb, 2Sa 12:1. David bitterly repented, but was yet punished, 2Sa 11:12. Bath-sheba was the mother of Solomon, whose succession to the throne she took pains to secure, 1Ki 1:15. She is afterwards mentioned in the history of Adonijah, 1Ki 2:13, in the title of Ps 51:1, and among the ancestors of Christ, Mt 1:6.
