Uriah’s Wife is Klaus Lelek’s interpretation of the Old Testament story told in the Second Book of Samuel, Chapters 11 and 12:

One evening David gets up from his bed and walks around on the roof of the palace. From the roof he sees a woman bathing. The woman is very beautiful, and David sends someone to find out about her. The man says, ‘She is Bathsheba, the daughter of Eliam and the wife of Uriah the Hittite.’ David sends messengers to fetch her. She comes to him, and he sleeps with her, even though she is purifying herself from her ‘monthly uncleanness’. Then she goes back home. The woman conceives and sends word to David, saying ‘I am pregnant.’ Uriah is then slain by David’s men, and when Uriah’s wife hears that her husband is dead she mourns for him. After the time of mourning is over, David has her brought to his house, and she becomes his wife and bears him a son.

But what David has done displeases the Lord. There are consequences.
