Character Occupation: Elite soldier in the army of David, king of Israel and Judah
Uriah the Hittite was a mighty warrior in the army of King David. He was also a loyal husband to his wife, Bathsheba. One day, David spied on Bathsheba bathing and was overcome with lust. He called for her to be brought to him and slept with her, impregnating her. In an effort to hide his sin, David called Uriah home from war, hoping that he and Bathsheba would have relations and that he would be able to pass the child off as belonging to Uriah. But Uriah, being a disciplined soldier, refused to visit his wife. David then had Uriah murdered by proxy, ordering all of Uriah's comrades to abandon him in the midst of battle, so that he ended up getting killed by an opposing army. Following Uriah's death, David took Bathsheba as his eighth wife. This story is a cautionary tale about the dangers of lust and the importance of keeping one's vows. It is also a reminder that even the most powerful and righteous of men are not immune to sin.
