(She had purified herself from her uncleanness.) Then [a] she went back home. 5 The woman conceived and sent word to David, saying, &quot;I am pregnant.&quot;

  18. 23. 2 Samuel 12 <ul><li>12The Lord sent Nathan to David with a story about a man wronged. David decreed the wrongdoer should be killed and the wronged man should be restored four times over. Then Nathan says that David is the wrongdoer and David confesses to his sin. Without hesitation, David asks for forgiveness and accepts the consequences of his sin. “So David said to Nathan, &quot;I have sinned against the Lord.&quot; And Nathan said to David, &quot;The Lord also has put away your sin; you shall not die. 14 However, because by this deed you have given great occasion to the enemies of the Lord to blaspheme, the child also who is born to you shall surely die.&quot; </li></ul>
