  Bath-sheba 
  daughter  of  the  oath,  or  of  seven  called  also  Bath-shu'a  (1 
  Chr.  3:5),  was  the  daughter  of  Eliam  (2  Sam.  11:3)  or  Ammiel  (1 
  Chr.  3:5),  and  wife  of  Uriah  the  Hittite.  David  committed 
  adultery  with  her  (2  Sam.  11:4,  5;  Ps  51:1).  The  child  born  in 
  adultery  died  (2  Sam.  12:15-19).  After  her  husband  was  slain 
  (11:15)  she  was  married  to  David  (11:27),  and  became  the  mother 
  of  Solomon  (12:24;  1  Kings  1:11;  2:13).  She  took  a  prominent 
  part  in  securing  the  succession  of  Solomon  to  the  throne  (1 
  Kings  1:11,  16-21).
