David and Bathsheba
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By James Pemberton
Other Poems by James Pemberton


Fleeing Temptation’s Grasp

There was once a great king,

who did sin and fall.

David, when from his balcony,

Bathsheba he saw.

In his heart, sin was brought forth,

lust was conceived.

A plan of murder in his heart

was later received.

This sin led to another and he

regretted that he had willed

To have Bathsheba’s husband,

in battle, to be killed.

The consequences of his sin

was later explained.

His first born son died, and later

his son Absalom was slain.

Once his sin was conceived,

it brought lust and then death.

Sin is always this way—

till you take your last breath.

Think of the consequences of sin—

flee temptation FAST.

And enjoy victory and blessings

from Jesus that will last.

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!
