David tarried at Jerusalem

1 Chronicles 20:1

20:1 David tarried at Jerusalem. The events associated with Uriah and Bathsheba took place during the time of David’s tarrying at Jerusalem (II Samuel 11:1–12:25). Thus the Chronicler’s account jumps from the time when Joab besieged Rabbah (II Samuel 11:1) to the destruction of Rabbah (II Samuel 12:26). He apparently wished to spare his readers returning from their Babylonian exile from dwelling too much on this unsavory event in the career of their great ancestral king David.
