5 And the woman conceived; and she sent and told David, and said, I am with child.
6 And David sent to Joab, `saying', Send me Uriah the Hittite. And Joab sent Uriah to David.
7 And when Uriah was come unto him, David asked of him how Joab did, and how the people fared, and how the war prospered.
8 And David said to Uriah, Go down to thy house, and wash thy feet. And Uriah departed out of the king's house, and there followed him a mess `of food' from the king.
9 But Uriah slept at the door of the king's house with all the servants of his lord, and went not down to his house.
