Bathsheba: The Beloved Wife


Then Nathan asked Bathsheba, Solomon’s mother, “Have you not heard that Adonijah, the son of Haggith, has become king without our lord David’s knowing it. (1 Kings 1:11)

Read and Ponder: 1 Kings1: 11-21, 28-37

In these verses, we witness the love and respect that has grown between David and Bathsheba. Because, Bathsheba was willing to forgive David and let him into her life she found favor with both God and David. Now, with courage and knowledge of David’s love she can go to David and make sure that her and her son’s place is secure after David dies.


Questions to Ponder:

  1. Do I feel secure enough in my love of God to ask and expect answers?
  2. Do I accept God’s answer in love and gratefulness?



Lord Jesus, help me to be more like Bathsheba and lovingly forgive those who have transgressed against me. Let me find my strength and compassion in you. Amen.

All for the glory of God,

Christina Weigand
