Additional Links

Bath'-sheba or Bath-she'ba. (daughter of the oath). 2 Samuel 11:3; etc., also called Bath-shua in 1 Chronicles 3:5, the daughter of Eliam, 2 Samuel 11:3, or Ammiel, 1 Chronicles 3:5, the son of Ahithophel, 2 Samuel 23:34, and wife of Uriah, the Hittite, (B.C. 1035). The child, which was the fruit of her adulterous intercourse with David, died; but after marriage, she became the mother of four sons, Solomon, Matthew 1:6, Shimea, Shobab and Nathan.

When Adonijah attempted to set aside the succession promised to Solomon, Bath-sheba informed the king of the conspiracy. 1 Kings 1:11; 1 Kings 1:15; 1 Kings 1:23. After the accession of Solomon, she, as queen-mother, requested permission of her son for Adonijah to take in marriage Abishag, the Shunammite. 1 Kings 2:21-25.
