11 Uriah said to David, "The ark and Israel and Judah are staying in tents,[1] and my commander Joab and my lord's men are camped in the open country. How could I go to my house to eat and drink and make love to my wife? As surely as you live, I will not do such a thing!"

Matthew Henry's Commentary on 2 Samuel 11:11

Commentary on 2 Samuel 11:6-13

(Read 2 Samuel 11:6-13)

Giving way to sin hardens the heart, and provokes the departure of the Holy Spirit. Robbing a man of his reason, is worse than robbing him of his money; and drawing him into sin, is worse than drawing him into any wordly trouble whatever.
