The Secret of King David King David and the army commander have confirmed that Uriah the Hittite died last Sunday at 20 years of age during a battle at the border of Israel against the Ammonites. A recently turned up letter, however, shines a completely different light on his fate and the possible role of King David in it. By Quinten Wittermans Although King David expressed his sincere condolences to Uriah the Hittite’s family, there were also well-founded suspicions against him. A few days before fate struck, it is written in a letter to the army commander, that the order which placed Uriah in the front line came from above. A decision that has become Uriah fatal. Why this transfer was made is not clear, but everything indicates that King David was directly involved and wanted to cover up a secret romance. For some time the wife of Uriah, Bathsheba, was the mistress of the king and it is said she was pregnant with the King at the time of her husband's death. King David and Bathsheba would have planned the so-called misfortune in order to seal their secret relationship romance with a marriage and a child. The King's official information service denied everything, just like Bathsheba. She also denied that there would be an affair or that there would be problems in her marriage to Uriah. However, it is obvious that King David and Bathsheba have feelings for each other. This case will be further investigated. If the King and Bathsheba were found guilty of such an offense, then a very high punishment awaits them.
