2 Samuel 11:1-5 (Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition.)
2 Samuel 111And it came to pass at the return of the year, at the time when kings go forth to war, that David sent Joab and his servants with him, and all Israel, and they spoiled the children of Ammon, and besieged Rabba: but David remained in Jerusalem.
2In the mean time it happened that David arose from his bed after noon, and walked upon the roof of the king's house: and he saw from the roof of his house a woman washing herself, over against him: and the woman was very beautiful.
3And the king sent, and inquired who the woman was. And it was told him, that she was Bethsabee the daughter of Eliam, the wife of Urias the Hethite.
4And David sent messengers, and took her, and she came in to him, and he slept with her: and presently she was purified from her uncleanness:
5And she returned to her house having conceived. And she sent and told David, and said: I have conceived.
