Then said David unto Uriah, Go down unto thy house, and bathe thy feet. And, when Uriah went out of the house of the king, there followed him, a present from the king. But Uriah slept at the entrance of the king's house, with all the servants of his lord, - and went not down unto his own house. And it was told David, saying, Uriah went not down, unto his own house.

And Uriah said unto David - The ark, and Israel and Judah, are dwelling in huts and, my lord Joab, and the servants of my lord, on the face of the field, are encamped, Was, I, then, to enter my own house, to eat and to drink and to lie with my wife?

And so it was, in the morning, that David wrote a letter unto Joab, - and sent it by the hand of Uriah; and he wrote in the letter, saying, - Set ye Uriah in the forefront of the hottest battle, and retire ye from him, that he be smitten and die. So it came to pass, when Joab was laying siege to the city, that he put Uriah in the place where he knew that the men of valour, were. And forth sallied the men of the city, and fought with Joab, and there fell some of the people, of the servants of David, - then died also, Uriah the Hittite.
