Everett's Study Notes on the Holy Scriptures

2 Samuel 13

Verses 1-39

David’s Sin and Judgment - Beginning in 2 Samuel 13:0, we see the curse of Nathan, the prophet, taking effect in David's family (2 Samuel 12:7-10.12.12). David's children had seen their father commit adultery, lie and murder. Now, some of his own children will follow in their father's actions.

2 Samuel 12:10-10.12.12, “Now therefore the sword shall never depart from thine house; because thou hast despised me, and hast taken the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be thy wife. Thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will raise up evil against thee out of thine own house, and I will take thy wives before thine eyes, and give them unto thy neighbour, and he shall lie with thy wives in the sight of this sun. For thou didst it secretly: but I will do this thing before all Israel, and before the sun.”
