David has just committed his most famous sin - his adultery with Bathsheba and his murder of her husband, Uriah. Nathan, a prophet of God, rebukes David reminding him that he has everything he could ever want, but Uriah only had one wife and worked hard for a living. But David decided to murder him for his wife. David is humbled and confesses his sins. As punishment, God takes the baby at birth and David mourns. It is a fitting ending to this story that David, who has neglected his royal duties, finally takes up the sword and leads his army into battle. They have victory with God on their side.
