    Then David sent messengers to get her; and when she came to the palace, he slept with her. She had just completed the purification rites after having her menstrual period. Then she returned home.Later, when Bathsheba discovered that she was pregnant, she sent David a message, saying,“ I’m pregnant.”Then David sent word to Joab:“ Send me Uriah the Hittite.” So Joab sent him to David.When Uriah arrived, David asked him how Joab and the army were getting along and how the war was progressing.Then he told Uriah,“ Go on home and relax.” David even sent a gift to Uriah after he had left the palace.But Uriah didn’t go home. He slept that night at the palace entrance with the king’s palace guard.When David heard that Uriah had not gone home, he summoned him and asked,“ What’s the matter? Why didn’t you go home last night after being away for so long?”Uriah replied,“ The Ark and the armies of Israel and Judah are living in tents, and Joab and my master’s men are camping in the open fields. How could I go home to wine and dine and sleep with my wife? I swear that I would never do such a thing.”“ Well, stay here today,” David told him,“ and tomorrow you may return to the army.” So Uriah stayed in Jerusalem that day and the next.Then David invited him to dinner and got him drunk. But even then he couldn’t get Uriah to go home to his wife. Again he slept at the palace entrance with the king’s palace guard.So the next morning David wrote a letter to Joab and gave it to Uriah to deliver.The letter instructed Joab,“ Station Uriah on the front lines where the battle is fiercest. Then pull back so that he will be killed.”

    So don’t make judgments about anyone ahead of time— before the Lord returns. For he will bring our darkest secrets to light and will reveal our private motives. Then God will give to each one whatever praise is due.
