2 Samuel 12:13-15 Lexham English Bible (LEB)

David Repents, But the Child Dies

13 Then David said to Nathan, “I have sinned against Yahweh!”[a] Nathan said to David, “Yahweh has also forgiven your sin; you shall not die. 14 But because you have utterly scorned[b] Yahweh in this matter, the son born for you will certainly die.”[c] 15 Then Nathan went to his house, and Yahweh struck the child that the wife of Uriah bore for David, and he became ill.


  1. 2 Samuel 12:13 See Pss 32:1–5; 51:1–13
  2. 2 Samuel 12:14 Literally “scorning you have scorned.” The term “enemies of” in the MT is likely a textual corruption and is deleted here
  3. 2 Samuel 12:14 Literally “dying will die” (compare Gen 2:17)
