2 Samuel 11-12


A: 10:1-11:1 Conflict with the Ammonites.

B: 11:2 – 11:5 David and Bathsheba’s initial sin and her pregnancy

C: 11:6 – 11:17 David’s manipulation and eventual murder of Uriah

D: 12:1 – 12:15 YHWH sends Nathan to David

C: 12:16 – 12:23 Their child dies – the first consequence of the sin

B: 12:24 – 12:25 The birth of Solomon, the son YHWH loved

A: 12:26 – 12:31 Ammonites defeated.

I find this very interesting particularly as Solomon’s birth seems to be out of chronological order.
