- 14 Now in the morning David wrote R307 a letter to Joab and sent it by the hand of Uriah. 15 He R308 had written in the letter, saying, "Place F117 Uriah in the front line of the fiercest F118 battle and withdraw from him, so R309 that he may be struck down and die." 16 So it was as Joab kept watch on the city, that he put Uriah at the place where he knew there were valiant men. 17 The men of the city went out and fought against Joab, and some of the people among David's servants fell; and Uriah R310 the Hittite also died. 18 Then Joab sent and reported to David all the events of the war. 19 He charged the messenger, saying, "When you have finished telling all the events of the war to the king, 20 and if it happens that the king's wrath rises and he says to you, `Why did you go so near to the city to fight? Did you not know that they would shoot from the wall? 21 `Who struck R311 down Abimelech the son of Jerubbesheth? Did not a woman throw 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 dead also.' " 22 So the messenger departed and came and reported to David all that Joab had sent him to tell. 23 The messenger said to David, "The men prevailed against us and came out against us in the field, but we pressed F119 them as far as the entrance of the gate. 24 "Moreover, the archers shot at your servants from the wall; so some of the king's servants are dead, and your servant Uriah the Hittite is also dead." 25 Then David said to the messenger, "Thus you shall say to Joab, `Do not let this thing displease F120 you, for the sword devours one as well as another; make your battle against the city stronger and overthrow it'; and so encourage him." 26 Now when the wife of Uriah heard that Uriah her husband was dead, she R312 mourned for her husband. 27 When the time of mourning was over, David sent and brought F121 her to his house and she R313 became his wife; then she bore him a son. But the R314 thing that David had done was evil in the sight of the LORD.
