The Fall of David

2 Samuel 11

David’s “great sin” was not simply having an affair with Bathsheba. It was compounded by murdering her husband. It was driven by covetousness. All that he had as king… and he wanted one more possession. 

The question I have on this story, along with Nathan’s rebuke, is this: Does David seem to “give up” after this? He is simply not the same king in the rest of the story.

Does he leave too much to “fate?”
