BATHSHEBA (Heb. bathsheva, daughter of Sheba). She was the wife of Uriah the Hittite, a soldier in David's army. During Uriah's absence in the wars David committed adultery with her (2 Sam 11). Uriah was then treacherously killed by David's order (11:6ff.). She became David's wife and lived with him in the palace. They had four sons, including Solomon (5:14; 1 Chron 3:5), after the first child had died (2 Sam 12:14ff.). With the help of the prophet Nathan she defeated the plot of Adonijah to usurp the kingdom and succeeded in having David choose Solomon as his successor. Her sons Nathan and Solomon were both ancestors of Jesus Christ (Matt 1:6; Luke 3:31).
