Meaning of the baby name BATH-SHEBA.


BATH-SHEBA (בַּת-שֶׁבַע).  Biblical.  [Hebrew Bath-shébha, f. Βηρσα-βεέ and Βηθσαβεέ, Bethsabee, "daughter of an oath," i.e. of divine promise (filia juramenti, scil. divini, i.e. filia divinitus promissa, Sim.), a comp. of בַּת bath, a daughter, and שֶׁבַע, sheba, seven, from שָׁבַע shaba, to swear, to promise by an oath, Ge. 50. 24. (The Proper Names of the Old Testament Scriptures Expounded and Illustrated, Jones, 1856).  Also spelled Bat-Sheva.

    A daughter of Eliam (2 Sam. xi. 3).  In 1 Chron. iii. 5 she is called Bath-shua (q.v.), and her father Ammiel.
     There was an Eliam, a son of Ahithophel (2 Sam. xxiii. 34).  If the two Eliams were identical, which is uncertain, then Bath-sheba was the granddaughter of Ahithophel.  [Eliam.]  She became the wife of Uriah the Hittite, and was the woman with whom David so shamefully sinned.  After Uriah's death she became the wife of David (2 Sam. xi. 27) and the mother of Solomon (xii. 24).  When Adonijah was preparing to usurp the kingdom, Bath-sheba, supported by the prophet Nathan, appealed to David in favour of her own son Solomon, the result being that Adonijah's enterprise was thwarted (1 Kings i. 11-53), and himself ultimately put to death (ii. 13-25).
