2 Samuel 12:5
12:5 David burned with anger [a righteous anger or moral indignation] against the man and said to Nathan, “As surely as the LORD lives, the man [the rich man] who did this deserves to die [David said the man deserved to die even though this man had not committed murder (theft of a lamb not a capital crime)]!
2 Samuel 12:13
12:13 Then David said to Nathan [obeyed the Lord by courageously confronting David about his sin], “I have sinned against the LORD [all sin is against the Lord; cf. Ps. 51:4; we must first own then disown our sins].” Nathan replied, “The LORD has taken away your sin. You are not going to die [cf. Deut. 22:22].
