Why is Bathsheba's name is not mentioned in Matt 1.6b? I notice that the NASB has Bathsheba's name with a note that the original says "her of Uriah." "Wife of Uriah," or something to that effect, is also found in the KJV, NKJV, American Standard, the NIV, the HCSB, and the NET Bible. Is this because there is nothing in the Bible (that I know of) that indicates Bathsheba repented of her adultery with David? I notice that the names of other less noble souls are there, but none of them I know committed adultery (or they did and repented, as David did). In the NASB, it has this for Ps 51: I know the statements in parentheses are not considered inspired, but if it's true that Nathan did see Bathsheba, it would indicate that he did confront Bathsheba with her sin. Perhaps she did not repent since there is nothing elsewhere in the Bible to indicate she did. I could be wrong but this is what I'm thinking. I find it significant that God does not name her. This is not a big issue for me, but an intriguing one, and I am wondering what others think of this. If you don't care about this or think this is silly, please go to another thread. :smilewinkgrin: Thank you.
