11 Thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will raise up evil against thee out of thine own house, and I will take thy wives before thine eyes, and give them unto thy neighbour, and he shall lie with thy wives in the sight of this sun.
12 For thou didst it secretly: but I will do this thing before all Israel, and before the sun.
In 2 Samuel 12, David has killed Uriah and taken his wife. God doesn’t approve, so he’s going to punish David by having his wives raped by his neighbors. This is not only immoral, it is also obscene.
What did these women do to deserve being raped? Is God in the habit of punishing people who did nothing against him just to prove his point to another? Actually, the idea that God punishes uninvolved people is present throughout the King James Bible. It appears as if God were auditioning for the role of Satan.
