2 Samuel 11:12
"Well, stay here today," David told him, "and tomorrow you may return to the army." So Uriah stayed in Jerusalem that day and the next.
How much less pure is a corrupt and sinful person with a thirst for wickedness!
Their mouths are full of cursing, lies, and threats. Trouble and evil are on the tips of their tongues.
A corrupt witness makes a mockery of justice; the mouth of the wicked gulps down evil.
Your wickedness will bring its own punishment. Your turning from me will shame you. You will see what an evil, bitter thing it is to abandon the LORD your God and not to fear him. I, the Lord, the LORD of Heaven's Armies, have spoken!
