(See .) Uriah, being a brother officer, formed an intimacy which ended in his marrying Eliam's daughter. David committed adultery with her, and caused her husband's murder (2 Samuel 11; 2 Samuel 23:34; 2 Samuel 23:39). Mother of Solomon, whose mind she helped much to mold; also of Shimea (or Shammua), Shobab, and Nathan (1 Chronicles 3:5). Nathan and Solomon were both ancestors of the Lord Jesus (Luke 3:31; Matthew 1:6). Her strength of intellect, kindness and influence over David and her son, appear in 1 Kings 1:11-31; 1 Kings 2:13-21. She is said by tradition to have composed Proverbs 31 as an admonition to Solomon on his marriage to Pharaoh's daughter.
