Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Samuel 12:7

_ _ 2 Samuel 12:7-23. He applies it to David, who confesses his sin, and is pardoned.

_ _ Nathan said to David, Thou art the man — These awful words pierced his heart, aroused his conscience, and brought him to his knees. The sincerity and depth of his penitent sorrow are evinced by the Psalms he composed (Psalms 32:1-11; Psalms 51:1-19; Psalms 103:1-22). He was pardoned, so far as related to the restoration of the divine favor. But as from his high character for piety, and his eminent rank in society, his deplorable fall was calculated to do great injury to the cause of religion, it was necessary that God should testify His abhorrence of sin by leaving even His own servant to reap the bitter temporal fruits. David was not himself doomed, according to his own view of what justice demanded (2 Samuel 12:5); but he had to suffer a quadruple expiation in the successive deaths of four sons, besides a lengthened train of other evils.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Samuel 12:1-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Samuel 12:7

Thus saith the Lord God — Nathan now speaks, not as a petitioner for a poor man, but as an ambassador from the great God.
