  1 H8666 It happened, at the return H8141 of the year, H6256 at the time H4428 when kings H3318 go out, H1732 that David H7971 sent H3097 Joab, H5650 and his servants H3478 with him, and all Israel; H7843 and they destroyed H1121 the children H5983 of Ammon, H6696 and besieged H7237 Rabbah. H1732 But David H3427 stayed H3389 at Jerusalem.
  2 H6153 It happened at evening, H1732 that David H6965 arose H4904 from off his bed, H1980 and walked H1406 on the roof H4428 of the king's H1004 house: H1406 and from the roof H7200 he saw H802 a woman H7364 bathing; H802 and the woman H3966 was very H2896 beautiful H4758 to look on.
  3 H1732 David H7971 sent H1875 and inquired H802 after the woman. H559 One said, H1339 "Isn't this Bathsheba, H1323 the daughter H463 of Eliam, H802 the wife H223 of Uriah H2850 the Hittite?"
  4 H1732 David H7971 sent H4397 messengers, H3947 and took H935 her; and she came in H7901 to him, and he lay H6942 with her (for she was purified H2932 from her uncleanness); H7725 and she returned H1004 to her house.
  5 H802 The woman H2029 conceived; H7971 and she sent H5046 and told H1732 David, H559 and said, H2030 "I am with child."
  6 H1732 David H7971 sent H3097 to Joab, H7971 "Send H223 me Uriah H2850 the Hittite." H3097 Joab H7971 sent H223 Uriah H1732 to David.
  7 H223 When Uriah H935 had come H1732 to him, David H7592 asked H3097 of him how Joab H7965 did, H5971 and how the people H7965 fared, H4421 and how the war H7965 prospered.
  8 H1732 David H559 said H223 to Uriah, H3381 "Go down H1004 to your house, H7364 and wash H7272 your feet." H223 Uriah H3318 departed out H4428 of the king's H1004 house, H4864 and a gift H4428 from the king H310 was sent after him.
  9 H223 But Uriah H7901 slept H6607 at the door H4428 of the king's H1004 house H5650 with all the servants H113 of his lord, H3381 and didn't go down H1004 to his house.
  10 H5046 When they had told H1732 David, H559 saying, H223 "Uriah H3381 didn't go down H1004 to his house," H1732 David H559 said H223 to Uriah, H935 "Haven't you come H1870 from a journey? H3381 Why didn't you go down H1004 to your house?"
  11 H223 Uriah H559 said H1732 to David, H727 "The ark, H3478 Israel, H3063 and Judah, H5521 are staying in tents; H113 and my lord H3097 Joab, H5650 and the servants H113 of my lord, H2583 are encamped H589 in H6440 the open H7704 field. H589 Shall I H935 then go H1004 into my house H398 to eat H8354 and to drink, H7901 and to lie H802 with my wife? H2416 As you live, H5315 and as your soul H2416 lives, H6213 I will not do H1697 this thing!"
  12 H1732 David H559 said H223 to Uriah, H3427 "Stay H3117 here today H4279 also, and tomorrow H7971 I will let you depart." H223 So Uriah H3427 stayed H3389 in Jerusalem H3117 that day, H3117 and the next day.
  13 H1732 When David H7121 had called H398 him, he ate H8354 and drink H6440 before H7937 him; and he made him drunk. H6153 At evening, H3318 he went out H7901 to lie H4904 on his bed H5650 with the servants H113 of his lord, H3381 but didn't go down H1004 to his house.
  14 H1242 It happened in the morning, H1732 that David H3789 wrote H5612 a letter H3097 to Joab, H7971 and sent H3027 it by the hand H223 of Uriah.
  15 H3789 He wrote H5612 in the letter, H559 saying, H3051 "Send H223 Uriah H6440 to the forefront H2389 of the hottest H4421 battle, H7725 and retreat H310 from him, H5221 that he may be struck, H4191 and die."
  16 H3097 It happened, when Joab H8104 kept watch H5892 on the city, H5414 that he assigned H223 Uriah H4725 to the place H3045 where he knew H2428 that valiant H582 men were.
  17 H582 The men H5892 of the city H3318 went out, H3898 and fought H3097 with Joab. H5971 Some of the people H5307 fell, H5650 even of the servants H1732 of David; H223 and Uriah H2850 the Hittite H4191 died also.

Micah 2:1-13

  1 H1945 Woe H2803 to those who devise H205 iniquity H6466 and work H7451 evil H4904 on their beds! H1242 When the morning H216 is light, H6213 they practice H3426 it, because it is H410 in the power H3027 of their hand.
  2 H2530 They covet H7704 fields, H1497 and seize H1004 them; and houses, H5375 and take them away: H6231 and they oppress H1397 a man H1004 and his house, H376 even a man H5159 and his heritage.
  3 H559 Therefore thus says H3068 Yahweh: H2803 "Behold, I am planning H4940 against these people H7451 a disaster, H4185 from which you will not remove H6677 your necks, H3212 neither will you walk H7317 haughtily; H7451 for it is an evil H6256 time.
  4 H3117 In that day H5375 they will take up H4912 a parable H5091 against you, and lament H5093 with a doleful H5092 lamentation, H559 saying, H7703 ‘We are utterly H7703 ruined! H5971 My people's H2506 possession H4171 is divided H4185 up. Indeed he takes H2505 it from me and assigns H7704 our fields H7725 to traitors!'"
  5 H7993 Therefore you will have no one who divides H2256 the land H1486 by lot H6951 in the assembly H3068 of Yahweh.
  6 H5197 "Don't prophesy!" H5197 They prophesy. H5197 "Don't prophesy H3639 about these things. Disgrace H5253 won't overtake us."
  7 H559 Shall it be said, H1004 O house H3290 of Jacob: H7307 "Is the Spirit H3068 of Yahweh H7114 angry? H4611 Are these his doings? H1697 Don't my words H3190 do good H1980 to him who walks H3477 blamelessly?"
  8 H865 But lately H5971 my people H6965 have risen up H341 as an enemy. H6584 You strip H145 the robe H4136 and H8008 clothing H5674 from those who pass H983 by without a care, H7725 returning H4421 from battle.
  9 H802 You drive the women H5971 of my people H1644 out H8588 from their pleasant H1004 houses; H5768 from their young children H3947 you take away H1926 my blessing H5769 forever.
  10 H6965 Arise, H3212 and depart! H4496 For this is not your resting H2930 place, because of uncleanness H2254 that destroys, H4834 even with a grievous H2256 destruction.
  11 H3863 If H376 a man H1980 walking H7307 in a spirit H8267 of falsehood H3576 lies: H5197 "I will prophesy H3196 to you of wine H7941 and of strong drink;" H5197 he would be the prophet H5971 of this people.
  12 H622 I will surely H622 assemble, H3290 Jacob, H6908 all of you; I will surely H6908 gather H7611 the remnant H3478 of Israel; H7760 I will put H3162 them together H6629 as the sheep H1223 of Bozrah, H5739 as a flock H8432 in the midst H1699 of their pasture; H1949 they will swarm H120 with people.
  13 H6555 He who breaks H5927 open the way goes up H6440 before H6555 them. They break H5674 through H8179 the gate, H3318 and go out. H4428 And their king H5674 passes H6440 on before H3068 them, with Yahweh H7218 at their head.
