I thought god killed the baby (after days of suffering, by the way) to punish David. Y'know, cause that's how god morality works. When a slavish follower pisses you off you torture and kill a baby.<quoted text>Note the Do What claimed earlier that a murder was forgiven in the bible. Kind David murdered the husband of the woman he impregnated.
Du What claimed David was finally forgiven after much repentance and god had to murder his baby in order to keep a pure blood line for the Jesus.
It's god's way.
