At some point, probably during his days of mourning God’s decree that his child would die because of the adultery, David finds himself in very deep regret for his actions.

In , an Italian surgeon touring Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum stopped in front of Rembrandt’s Bathsheba at the Well, on loan from the Louvre, and noticed an asymmetry to Bathsheba’s left breast; it seemed distended, swollen near the armpit, discolored, and marked with a.
