2 Samuel 11 (WEBP)
 At the return of the year, at the time when kings go out, David sent Joab and his servants with him, and all Israel; and they destroyed the children of Ammon and besieged Rabbah. But David stayed at Jerusalem.
 At evening, David arose from his bed and walked on the roof of the king’s house. From the roof, he saw a woman bathing, and the woman was very beautiful to look at.
 David sent and inquired after the woman. One said, “Isn’t this Bathsheba, the daughter of Eliam, Uriah the Hittite’s wife?”
 David sent messengers, and took her; and she came in to him, and he lay with her (for she was purified from her uncleanness); and she returned to her house.
 The woman conceived; and she sent and told David, and said, “I am with child.”
 David sent to Joab, “Send me Uriah the Hittite.” Joab sent Uriah to David.
 When Uriah had come to him, David asked him how Joab did, and how the people fared, and how the war prospered.
 David said to Uriah, “Go down to your house and wash your feet.” Uriah departed out of the king’s house, and a gift from the king was sent after him.
 But Uriah slept at the door of the king’s house with all the servants of his lord, and didn’t go down to his house.
 When they had told David, saying, “Uriah didn’t go down to his house,” David said to Uriah, “Haven’t you come from a journey? Why didn’t you go down to your house?”
 Uriah said to David, “The ark, Israel, and Judah, are staying in tents; and my lord Joab and the servants of my lord are encamped in the open field. Shall I then go into my house to eat and to drink, and to lie with my wife? As you live, and as your soul lives, I will not do this thing!”
 David said to Uriah, “Stay here today also, and tomorrow I will let you depart.” So Uriah stayed in Jerusalem that day and the next day.
 When David had called him, he ate and drank before him; and he made him drunk. At evening, he went out to lie on his bed with the servants of his lord, but didn’t go down to his house.
 In the morning, David wrote a letter to Joab and sent it by the hand of Uriah.
 He wrote in the letter, saying, “Send Uriah to the forefront of the hottest battle, and retreat from him, that he may be struck and die.”
 When Joab kept watch on the city, he assigned Uriah to the place where he knew that valiant men were.
 The men of the city went out and fought with Joab. Some of the people fell, even of David’s servants; and Uriah the Hittite died also.
 Then Joab sent and told David all the things concerning the war;
 and he commanded the messenger, saying, “When you have finished telling all the things concerning the war to the king,
 it shall be that, if the king’s wrath arise, and he asks you, ‘Why did you go so near to the city to fight? Didn’t you know that they would shoot from the wall?
 Who struck Abimelech the son of Jerubbesheth? Didn’t a woman cast an upper millstone on him from the wall, so that he died at Thebez? Why did you go so near the wall?’ then you shall say, ‘Your servant Uriah the Hittite is also dead.’ ”
 So the messenger went, and came and showed David all that Joab had sent him for.
 The messenger said to David, “The men prevailed against us, and came out to us into the field; and we were on them even to the entrance of the gate.
 The shooters shot at your servants from off the wall; and some of the king’s servants are dead, and your servant Uriah the Hittite is also dead.”
 Then David said to the messenger, “Tell Joab, ‘Don’t let this thing displease you, for the sword devours one as well as another. Make your battle stronger against the city, and overthrow it.’ Encourage him.”
 When Uriah’s wife heard that Uriah her husband was dead, she mourned for her husband.
 When the mourning was past, David sent and took her home to his house, and she became his wife and bore him a son. But the thing that David had done displeased Yahweh.

2 Samuel 11 (KJVS)
 And it came to pass, after the year H8141 was expired H8666, at the time H6256 when kings H4428 (8675) H4397 go forth H3318 (8800) [to battle], that David H1732 sent H7971 (8799) Joab H3097, and his servants H5650 with him, and all Israel H3478; and they destroyed H7843 (8686) the children H1121 of Ammon H5983, and besieged H6696 (8799) Rabbah H7237. But David H1732 tarried still H3427 (8802) at Jerusalem H3389.
 And it came to pass in an eveningtide H6153 H6256, that David H1732 arose H6965 (8799) from off his bed H4904, and walked H1980 (8691) upon the roof H1406 of the king’s H4428 house H1004: and from the roof H1406 he saw H7200 (8799) a woman H802 washing H7364 (8801) herself; and the woman H802 [was] very H3966 beautiful H2896 to look upon H4758.
 And David H1732 sent H7971 (8799) and enquired H1875 (8799) after the woman H802. And [one] said H559 (8799), [Is] not this Bathsheba H1339, the daughter H1323 of Eliam H463, the wife H802 of Uriah H223 the Hittite H2850?
 And David H1732 sent H7971 (8799) messengers H4397, and took H3947 (8799) her; and she came in H935 (8799) unto him, and he lay H7901 (8799) with her; for she was purified H6942 (8693) from her uncleanness H2932: and she returned H7725 (8799) unto her house H1004.
 And the woman H802 conceived H2029 (8799), and sent H7971 (8799) and told H5046 (8686) David H1732, and said H559 (8799), I [am] with child H2030.
 And David H1732 sent H7971 (8799) to Joab H3097, [saying], Send H7971 (8798) me Uriah H223 the Hittite H2850. And Joab H3097 sent H7971 (8799) Uriah H223 to David H1732.
 And when Uriah H223 was come H935 (8799) unto him, David H1732 demanded H7592 (8799) [of him] how Joab H3097 did H7965, and how the people H5971 did H7965, and how the war H4421 prospered H7965.
 And David H1732 said H559 (8799) to Uriah H223, Go down H3381 (8798) to thy house H1004, and wash H7364 (8798) thy feet H7272. And Uriah H223 departed out H3318 (8799) of the king’s H4428 house H1004, and there followed H310 him a mess H4864 [of meat] from the king H4428.
 But Uriah H223 slept H7901 (8799) at the door H6607 of the king’s H4428 house H1004 with all the servants H5650 of his lord H113, and went not down H3381 (8804) to his house H1004.
 And when they had told H5046 (8686) David H1732, saying H559 (8800), Uriah H223 went not down H3381 (8804) unto his house H1004, David H1732 said H559 (8799) unto Uriah H223, Camest H935 (8802) thou not from [thy] journey H1870? why [then] didst thou not go down H3381 (8804) unto thine house H1004?
 And Uriah H223 said H559 (8799) unto David H1732, The ark H727, and Israel H3478, and Judah H3063, abide H3427 (8802) in tents H5521; and my lord H113 Joab H3097, and the servants H5650 of my lord H113, are encamped H2583 (8802) in the open H6440 fields H7704; shall I H589 then go H935 (8799) into mine house H1004, to eat H398 (8800) and to drink H8354 (8800), and to lie H7901 (8800) with my wife H802? [as] thou livest H2416, and [as] thy soul H5315 liveth H2416, I will not do H6213 (8799) this thing H1697.
 And David H1732 said H559 (8799) to Uriah H223, Tarry H3427 (8798) here to day H3117 also, and to morrow H4279 I will let thee depart H7971 (8762). So Uriah H223 abode H3427 (8799) in Jerusalem H3389 that day H3117, and the morrow H4283.
 And when David H1732 had called H7121 (8799) him, he did eat H398 (8799) and drink H8354 (8799) before H6440 him; and he made him drunk H7937 (8762): and at even H6153 he went out H3318 (8799) to lie H7901 (8800) on his bed H4904 with the servants H5650 of his lord H113, but went not down H3381 (8804) to his house H1004.
 And it came to pass in the morning H1242, that David H1732 wrote H3789 (8799) a letter H5612 to Joab H3097, and sent H7971 (8799) [it] by the hand H3027 of Uriah H223.
 And he wrote H3789 (8799) in the letter H5612, saying H559 (8800), Set H3051 (8798) ye Uriah H223 in the forefront H6440 H4136 of the hottest H2389 battle H4421, and retire H7725 (8804) ye from him H310, that he may be smitten H5221 (8738), and die H4191 (8804).
 And it came to pass, when Joab H3097 observed H8104 (8800) the city H5892, that he assigned H5414 (8799) Uriah H223 unto a place H4725 where he knew H3045 (8804) that valiant H2428 men H582 [were].
 And the men H582 of the city H5892 went out H3318 (8799), and fought H3898 (8735) with Joab H3097: and there fell H5307 (8799) [some] of the people H5971 of the servants H5650 of David H1732; and Uriah H223 the Hittite H2850 died H4191 (8799) also.
 Then Joab H3097 sent H7971 (8799) and told H5046 (8686) David H1732 all the things H1697 concerning the war H4421;
 And charged H6680 (8762) the messenger H4397, saying H559 (8800), When thou hast made an end H3615 (8763) of telling H1696 (8763) the matters H1697 of the war H4421 unto the king H4428,
 And if so be that the king’s H4428 wrath H2534 arise H5927 (8799), and he say H559 (8804) unto thee, Wherefore approached ye so nigh H5066 (8738) unto the city H5892 when ye did fight H3898 (8736)? knew H3045 (8804) ye not that they would shoot H3384 (8686) from the wall H2346?
 Who smote H5221 (8689) Abimelech H40 the son H1121 of Jerubbesheth H3380? did not a woman H802 cast H7993 (8689) a piece H6400 of a millstone H7393 upon him from the wall H2346, that he died H4191 (8799) in Thebez H8405? why went ye nigh H5066 (8738) the wall H2346? then say H559 (8804) thou, Thy servant H5650 Uriah H223 the Hittite H2850 is dead H4191 (8804) also.
 So the messenger H4397 went H3212 (8799), and came H935 (8799) and shewed H5046 (8686) David H1732 all that Joab H3097 had sent H7971 (8804) him for.
 And the messenger H4397 said H559 (8799) unto David H1732, Surely the men H582 prevailed H1396 (8804) against us, and came out H3318 (8799) unto us into the field H7704, and we were upon them even unto the entering H6607 of the gate H8179.
 And the shooters H3384 (8688) shot H3384 (8686) from off the wall H2346 upon thy servants H5650; and [some] of the king’s H4428 servants H5650 be dead H4191 (8799), and thy servant H5650 Uriah H223 the Hittite H2850 is dead H4191 (8804) also.
 Then David H1732 said H559 (8799) unto the messenger H4397, Thus shalt thou say H559 (8799) unto Joab H3097, Let not this thing H1697 displease H3415 (8799) H5869 thee, for the sword H2719 devoureth H398 (8799) one as well as another H2090: make thy battle H4421 more strong H2388 (8685) against the city H5892, and overthrow H2040 (8798) it: and encourage H2388 (8761) thou him.
 And when the wife H802 of Uriah H223 heard H8085 (8799) that Uriah H223 her husband H376 was dead H4191 (8804), she mourned H5594 (8799) for her husband H1167.
 And when the mourning H60 was past H5674 (8799), David H1732 sent H7971 (8799) and fetched H622 (8799) her to his house H1004, and she became his wife H802, and bare H3205 (8799) him a son H1121. But the thing H1697 that David H1732 had done H6213 (8804) displeased H3415 (8799) H5869 the LORD H3068.
Young’s Literal Translation
2 Samuel 11 (YLT)
 And it cometh to pass, at the revolution of the year-at the time of the going out of the messengers-that David sendeth Joab, and his servants with him, and all Israel, and they destroy the Bene-Ammon, and lay siege against Rabbah. And David is dwelling in Jerusalem,
 and it cometh to pass, at evening-time, that David riseth from off his couch, and walketh up and down on the roof of the king’s house, and seeth from the roof a woman bathing, and the woman is of very good appearance,
 and David sendeth and inquireth about the woman, and saith, ‘Is not this Bath-Sheba, daughter of Eliam, wife of Uriah the Hittite?’
 And David sendeth messengers, and taketh her, and she cometh unto him, and he lieth with her-and she is purifying herself from her uncleanness-and she turneth back unto her house;
 and the woman conceiveth, and sendeth, and declareth to David, and saith, ‘I am conceiving.’
 And David sendeth unto Joab, ‘Send unto me Uriah the Hittite,’ and Joab sendeth Uriah unto David;
 and Uriah cometh unto him, and David asketh of the prosperity of Joab, and of the prosperity of the people, and of the prosperity of the war.
 And David saith to Uriah, ‘Go down to thy house, and wash thy feet;’ and Uriah goeth out of the king’s house, and there goeth out after him a gift from the king,
 and Uriah lieth down at the opening of the king’s house, with all the servants of his lord, and hath not gone down unto his house.
 And they declare to David, saying, ‘Uriah hath not gone down unto his house;’ and David saith unto Uriah, ‘Hast thou not come from a journey? wherefore hast thou not gone down unto thy house?’
 And Uriah saith unto David, ‘The ark, and Israel, and Judah, are abiding in booths, and my lord Joab, and the servants of my lord, on the face of the field are encamping; and I-I go in unto my house to eat and to drink, and to lie with my wife!-thy life, and the life of thy soul-if I do this thing.’
 And David saith unto Uriah, ‘Abide in this place also to-day, and to-morrow I send thee away;’ and Uriah abideth in Jerusalem, on that day, and on the morrow,
 and David calleth for him, and he eateth before him, and drinketh, and he causeth him to drink, and he goeth out in the evening to lie on his couch with the servants of his lord, and unto his house he hath not gone down.
 And it cometh to pass in the morning, that David writeth a letter unto Joab, and sendeth by the hand of Uriah;
 and he writeth in the letter, saying, ‘Place ye Uriah over-against the front of the severest battle, and ye have turned back from after him, and he hath been smitten, and hath died.’
 And it cometh to pass in Joab’s watching of the city, that he appointeth Uriah unto the place where he knew that valiant men are;
 and the men of the city go out and fight with Joab, and there fall some of the people, of the servants of David; and there dieth also Uriah the Hittite.
 And Joab sendeth and declareth to David all the matters of the war,
 and commandeth the messenger, saying, ‘At thy finishing all the matters of the war to speak unto the king,
 then, it hath been, if the king’s fury ascend, and he hath said to thee, Wherefore did ye draw nigh unto the city to fight? did ye not know that they shoot from off the wall?
 Who smote Abimelech son of Jerubbesheth? did not a woman cast on him a piece of a rider from the wall, and he dieth in Thebez? why drew ye nigh unto the wall? that thou hast said, Also thy servant Uriah the Hittite is dead.’
 And the messenger goeth, and cometh in, and declareth to David all that with which Joab sent him,
 and the messenger saith unto David, ‘Surely the men have been mighty against us, and come out unto us into the field, and we are upon them unto the opening of the gate,
 and those shooting shoot at thy servants from off the wall, and some of the servants of the king are dead, and also, thy servant Uriah the Hittite is dead.
 And David saith unto the messenger, ‘Thus dost thou say unto Joab, Let not this thing be evil in thine eyes; for thus and thus doth the sword devour; strengthen thy warfare against the city, and throw it down-and strengthen thou him.’
 And the wife of Uriah heareth that Uriah her husband is dead, and lamenteth for her lord;
 and the mourning passeth by, and David sendeth and gathereth her unto his house, and she is to him for a wife, and beareth to him a son; and the thing which David hath done is evil in the eyes of Jehovah.
