2 Samuel

Details, Please (Part 2)

After capturing Jerusalem from the Jebusites, David creates a new capital for his unified nation, and God promises David, “‘Your throne will be established forever'” (7:16 NIV).  Military victories make Israel strong, but when David stays home from battle one spring, he commits adultery with a beautiful neighbor, Bathsheba.  Then he has her husband – one of his soldiers – murdered.
