According to the Bible, who did David commit adultery with?

David committed adultery with Bathsheba, the wife of Uriah (2 Samuel 11). As a king, David should’ve been in the battle with all of his mighty men. Instead he was in the wrong place. This opened him up to temptation with her.

After he committed adultery with Bathsheba, David brought her husband back from the front lines hoping to cover up the fact that she was pregnant. It didn’t work because he was more righteous in this case then David.

He refused to go home and enjoy the presence of his wife while his friends and fellow soldiers were on the battlefield. David then sent him back to the front lines and gave orders that put him in danger. He died in the battle, making David both an adulterer and a murderer.

David was very close to God, but when he sinned, he really sinned. Even though their child died as part of God’s discipline, David then Mary Bathsheba and they had Solomon, the third king of Israel.
