Something I hadn't seen before in 2 Samuel is the significance of Solomon. David sins by sleeping with Bathsheba, repents, and now sleeps with her 'properly'. God honours this, by giving the blessing of a child who lives, by sending a positive message through Nathan (who had delivered the negative message before), and by choosing Solomon over David's other sons to be the next king.

And yet... one of Solomon's weaknesses, like his father's, was women. How much did the circumstances of his birth have to do with this?
