a "The Hittite," the husband of Bathsheba. David caused Uriah to be placed in the front of a battle with the Ammonites, where the hottest fighting was done, that he might be killed; then after Uriah's death David took Bathsheba for his wife. Solomon was their second son, the first one having died (II Sam. 11:3--12:24). b There were noted Israelitish priests by this name (Ezra 8:33; Neh. 8:4; Isa. 8:2).
Meta. Spiritual illumination, which is purifying in character (my light is Jehovah, Jah is light, the Lord is my light, flame of Jehovah, fire of Jehovah). The activity of the cleansing, refining process of Spirit is hindered in man when he lets lustful desires enter the love consciousness: David (love) was instrumental in having Uriah the Hittite killed that he might have Uriah's wife, Bathsheba.
