The covenant that god makes with david. The succession narrative of the house of david. David commits adultery with bathsheba both are married but not to each other. She is supposed to be having her period, so she was unclean (women normally shouldn"t have sex with someone when they are unclean) They need to cover up the fact that they had an affair with each other. David hopes that uriah will go and sleep with his wife but this fellow does, he sleeps at the king"s door: this is cause warriors who have sex become soft and relaxed which is not good. So david sends off uriah one of his most loyal warriors to the most dangerous battle. David makes uriah carry his own death sentence letter to joab this makes god angry so that he could be killed. (god is displeased) When it does not pertain to himself, david has a good sense of right and wrong.
