26 Now when the wife of Uriah heard that Uriah her husband was dead, she mourned for her husband. 27 When the time of mourning was over, David sent and brought her to his house and she became his wife; then she bore him a son. But the thing that David had done was evil in the sight of the Lord.

I am bent over and greatly bowed down; I go mourning all day long. For my loins are filled with burning, And there is no soundness in my flesh. I am benumbed and badly crushed; I groan because of the agitation of my heart.

Bathsheba wasn’t guiltless; she bathed in the open. Modesty is a virtue for Christian ladies. Fornication is not an act of tenderness and love, but a hideous, ugly sin, and it leads to more sin and God’s discipline. David lost fellowship with God and depression set in. Psalms 32, 38, and 51 describe it. We can’t ignore our sin; for it breaks God’s heart. With godly sorrow, confess it to Him.
