We hear a great deal about the sin of David, but seldom does anyone mention the sin of Bathsheba. And it is true enough that David’s sin was very great, and Bathsheba’s very small. David’s sin was deliberate and presumptuous, Bathsheba’s only a sin of ignorance. David committed deliberate adultery and murder, Bathsheba only carelessly and undesignedly exposed herself before David’s eyes. We have no doubt that David’s sin was great and Bathsheba’s was small.
