Bath-sheba (bâth-shç'bah or bath'she-bah), daughter of the oath. The wife of Uriah the Hittite, an officer in David's army. She is called Bath-shua in 1 Chronicles 3:5. David first committed adultery with her, then caused her husband to be slain, and afterwards took her to wife. Bath-sheba was the mother of Solomon, whose succession to the throne she took pains to secure, 1 Kings 1:15-31, and of three other sons, 1 Chronicles 3:5. She is afterwards mentioned in the history of Adonijah, 1 Kings 2:13, in the title of Psalms 51:1-19, and among the ancestors of Christ. Matthew 1:6.
