Chapter Summary

The Hartford Sermon Notebook contains 62 unpublished "occasional" and "regular" sermons. The Hartford Sermon Notebook begins with a Mr. Woodbridge sermon that could be titled "The Mercy of God ," based upon its overriding theme. In the second book of Samuel, David has become a king, and it is in Second Samuel that David commits adultery with Bathsheba, the wife of Uriah the Hittite. She becomes pregnant, and upon Uriah's death in battle, ultimately becomes David's wife. Fortunately, for David and his people, they have a covenant with God, so that Jerusalem is only nearly wiped out by an angel of the lord. Complete destruction is avoided when David repents. Second Samuel 24:14 relates to the Woodbridge sermon because, even though David's sin is great, the mercies of God are greater.
