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

Sin brings unhappy consequences. It is a barrier to our worship, separates us from our friends, and makes us lash out at the sins of others. God must discipline His children. Now all will know He is holy and righteous, plus, we must bear the consequences of our sin. If it brings us to our knees and our hearts are contrite, then the Lord takes away our sin. We forgive as we have been forgiven.
