What can God do? How and why? Once David knew, the seemingly 'impossible' hadn't happened, he moved on. 'Lotion'-ed up, had something to eat. Accepted the loss.

Here 'on sin' want to be clear as, what is, and not pretend this aspect of God's word is likely – even with better interpretations – to attract. Because... and be easy to scuffer all the silliness connected; Lack of grace-based . . .
