The study discusses the Old Testament's parable of Nathan and the
subsequent condemnation of King David. The intriguing episode of
the Prophet Nathan pronouncing judgment on the erring King David
has always attracted the interest of the exegete and various
researchers have used different methods to separate the
condemnation of King David from the ancient author. This study
presents a synchronic reading of the canonical text that reveals
the episode as the mirror image of the oracle of eternal dynasty
pronounced to David by the same prophet in the Second Book of
Samuel 7. It is indeed the work of the deuteronomistic writer who
has adapted an oracle against the dynasty of David and trimmed it
to the advantage of his hero in the unfolding of history.
