2 Samuel 12:11-12 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

11 Thus says the Lord: I will bring evil upon you out of your own house. I will take your wives before your very eyes, and will give them to your neighbor: he shall lie with your wives in broad daylight.[a] 12 You have acted in secret, but I will do this in the presence of all Israel, in the presence of the sun itself.”


  1. 12:11 In broad daylight: lit., “before the eyes of the sun”; the phrase echoes “before your very eyes” and anticipates “in the presence of the sun itself” (v. 12). The reference is to Absalom’s action in appropriating his father’s harem (16:22).
