Hello guys

I was doing some searches on David's Mother and his birthday. Although there aren't many things in Bible that can tells about David's mother or bithday, I found an interesting text from talmude sources.

As I understood, according to this text, Nitzevet, David's mother was separeted from her husband and changed with his maidservant at night so that she could have sex with him.

I just to confirm whether David's mother was separated from his husband.

this is the link

thanks

I see, but I am doing a work on this and I need to be sure that.
As english is not my native language, sometimes I have some difficult with it. I hope you understand me :)

So, did you take a look at the text?

According to the text the speration you you speak of was more a physical one, as opposed a legal one. That is to say David's father decided not to sleep with his mother, but they had other children together and they still lived in the same household.

hummm,

In Psalm 51:5 you find:

Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.

So, can we tell that David's mothers conceived him in iniquity according to this text?

Again based on the article you linked, he was not conceived in sin. His father doubted his own legitimacy and did not believe he could be married to an Israelite. Since no one but David's mother, and the handmaiden, knew who David's father was, and his mother chose to remain silent on the topic, it was assumed that David was conceived sin, but technically his parents were married at the time.
