Who is Bathsheba?
(daughter of the oath), the daughter of Eliam, 2 Sam 11:3, otherwise called Ammiel, 1 Chr 3:5, Ahithophel's son, 2 Sam 23:34. She became the wife of Uriah, an officer in David's army. Her beauty proved a snare to David, for he not only committed adultery with her, but treacherously procured the death of her injured husband. 2 Sam 11:1-27. The child of this intercourse died. When the days of mourning were accomplished, David married her, and she afterward bore him three sons besides Solomon. When Adonijah attempted to seize the throne, Bath-sheba told the king at the instigation of Nathan. 1 Kgs 1:15. It was to her as queen-mother that Adonijah went with the request for the hand of Abishag. 1 Kgs 2:13-22. See Adonijah.
