David's house dividedDavid's House Divided - The consequence of David's sin was severe.  Nathan the prophet continues:


"'Now therefore, the sword will never depart from your house, because you have despised Me and have taken the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be your wife.  Thus says the Lord, "Behold, I will raise up evil against you from your own household; I will even take your wives before your eyes and give them to your companion, and he will lie with your wives in broad daylight.  Indeed, you did it secretly, but I will do this thing before all Israel, and under the sun."'" (II Samuel 12:10-12, NASB)
