Nathan rebukes David

Nathan (Hebrew: נתן Natan "gift") was the prophet sent by God to rebuke David for planning the death of Uriah in battle. David planned Uriah’s death so that David could marry Bath-Sheba, who was Uriah’s wife. Uriah died in battle as David planned, and David then married Bathsheba, who then bore David’s son. Nathan then prophesied that the son would die within a week, and he did. The next child born to David and Bath-Sheba was destined to become King Solomon.

Much later Nathan played a key role in ensuring that Solomon would become king rather than Solomon’s half-brother, Adonijah. Nathan ultimately outlived both David and Solomon.
