How Could David go and do this? I understand the whole get thing that before going into battle the men would give their wives a get in case they died, but nevertheless, we're talking about the great one and only King David breaking two of the most fundamental laws of the Torah, one being not to covet your brother's wife, and the other being not to lay with a married woman, thus committing adultery.
Couldn't he have just waited or offered Uriah a large sum of money to divorce his wife. I mean we're talking about a man that conquered his evil inclination, not to mention the fact that most probably all of his wives were very beautiful.
Am I missing something here? I'm really sorry if this is offending anyone, but I really just don't understand.
