NLTNew Living Translation
11“This is what the Lord says: Because of what you have done, I will cause your own household to rebel against you. I will give your wives to another man before your very eyes, and he will go to bed with them in public view. 12You did it secretly, but I will make this happen to you openly in the sight of all Israel.”
David Confesses His Guilt
13Then David confessed to Nathan, “I have sinned against the Lord.”
Nathan replied, “Yes, but the Lord has forgiven you, and you won’t die for this sin. 14Nevertheless, because you have shown utter contempt for the word of the Lord#12:14 As in Dead Sea Scrolls; Masoretic Text reads the enemies of the Lord. by doing this, your child will die.”
15After Nathan returned to his home, the Lord sent a deadly illness to the child of David and Uriah’s wife.
