Bathsheba or Bath-sheba
(daughter of the oath), (2 Samuel 11:3, etc.), also called Bath-shua in 1 Chronicles 3:5. The daughter of Eliam (2 Samuel 11:3) or Ammiel (1 Chronicles 3:5), the son of Ahithophel (2 Samuel 23:34) and wife of Uriah the Hittite. The child which was the fruit of her adulterous intercourse with David died, but after marriage she became the mother of four sons: Solomon (Matthew 1:6), Shimea, Shobab, and Nathan. When Adonijah attempted to set aside the succession promised to Solomon, Bath-sheba informed the king of the conspiracy (1 Kings 1:11, 15, 23). After the accession of Solomon she, as queen-mother, requested permission of her son for Adonijah to take in marriage Abishag the Shunammite (1 Kings 2:21-25).
