2 Samuel 12:11
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.
2 Samuel 16:21
Ahithophel said to Absalom, “
Go in to your father’s concubines, whom he has left to keep the house; then all Israel will hear that you have made yourself odious to your father. The hands of all who are with you will also be strengthened.”
2 Samuel 20:3
Then David came to his house at Jerusalem, and
the king took the ten women, the concubines whom he had left to keep the house, and placed them under guard and provided them with sustenance, but did not go in to them. So they were shut up until the day of their death, living as widows.
And do not
be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.
