David has been amply criticized for being a Peeping Tom. Not hardly anything has been said about Bathsheba taking an outdoor bath in plain view of the king’s palace (only the king had a second story house).
Lust is a sin for both male and female. Tempted and tempters.
It came to pass in an eveningtide, that David arose from off his bed, and walked upon the roof of the king’s house: and from the roof he saw a woman washing herself; and the woman was very beautiful to look upon… And David sent messengers, and took her; and she came in unto him, and he lay with her. — 2 Sam. 11:2,4 KJV.
This one act of impulse threw David’s kingdom into helter skelter. The man full of passion for God became discredited by his passion for a woman. The aftermath was devastating. His son raped a half-sister. Another son conspired against King David and nearly killed him. The shockwaves sounded far and wide.
