And David comforted his wife Bathsheba, and went to her and lay with her. And she bore a son and he called his name Solomon. And Yahweh loved him, Bible other translations

“he called.” There is a Qumran manuscript that reads “she called,” but the Massoretic text reads “he called.”

“And Yahweh loved him.” It is rare for the text to point out an individual and say that Yahweh loved him, and it is an interesting parallel that this “son of David” was loved, just as the greater Son of David, Jesus Christ, was loved, “This is my beloved son” (Matt. 3:17).
