Bathsheba suffered greatly from David’s sin. And the Lord couldn’t remove what David had done, but he did bring redemption to her. She would live in the king’s palace and she would conceive again. She would give birth to a son. It wouldn’t be David’s first, second or even third son but this would be the son that would rule Israel, something not a cultural norm. And this son would be called “Beloved of God” as God expressed a special love for this son. This son would be the wealthiest and wisest that the world would ever know.
Redemption. It doesn’t come quickly. It doesn’t come like we want. It doesn’t erase what has been done. But God can redeem all things. If we let him.
