David and Bathsheba

 David and Bathsheba



David was a great king,

who sinned and took a great fall.

As lust grabbed his heart,

When Bathsheba he saw!


In his heart... he sinned as

lust was conceived.

A plan of murderous lot

was soon achieved!


This sin led to another!

King David planned….

To have Bathsheba's husband

 killed by his enemies’ hands..


The consequences of his sin

 was later explained.

His first born died, and his

son Absalom was slain.


Once his sin was conceived,

it brought heartache and death.

Sin is always this way--

until you take your last breath!.


Think of the consequences

 sin always brings!.

And think of what happened

To David the king!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
