CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
11:4 Took her - From her own house into his palace, not by force, but by persuasion. Lay with her - See how all the way to sin is down hill! When men begin, they cannot soon stop themselves.

These desires give birth to sinful actions. And when sin is allowed to grow, it gives birth to death.
"Give the following instructions to the people of Israel. If a woman becomes pregnant and gives birth to a son, she will be ceremonially unclean for seven days, just as she is unclean during her menstrual period.
After a man and a woman have sexual intercourse, they must each bathe in water, and they will remain unclean until the next evening.
"Do not have sexual relations with a woman during her period of menstrual impurity.
2 Samuel 12:12
You did it secretly, but I will make this happen to you openly in the sight of all Israel."
For the choir director: A psalm of David, regarding the time Nathan the prophet came to him after David had committed adultery with BathSheba. Have mercy on me, O God, because of your unfailing love. Because of your great compassion, blot out the stain of my sins.
