We read that after King David sinned against God, Uriah, Bathsheba, and the whole nation of Israel; God said “the sword shall never depart from your house”. Can we find any exegetical grounds with 2 Samuel 12:10 to assume that God may in fact never let a temporal judgment off of any of His people for their sins in this life?
“Why have you despised the commandment of the Lord, to do evil in His sight? You have killed Uriah the Hittite with the sword; you have taken his wife to be your wife, and have killed him with the sword of the people of Ammon.
Now therefore, the sword shall never depart from your house, because you have despised Me, and have taken the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be your wife.’
Thus says the Lord: ‘Behold, I will raise up adversity against you from your own house; and I will take your wives before your eyes and give them to your neighbor, and he shall lie with your wives in the sight of this sun.” II Samuel 12:9-11
