Here is proof that, as amazing as David is, he did not live a perfect life. In fact, he fell for Bathsheba and committed truly evil acts that seem completely out of character with many actions in the past that demonstrated integrity. Apparently, Bathsheba was David's weakness -- and we all have them. 

2 Samuel 11:2-5New Living Translation (NLT)

Late one afternoon, after his midday rest, David got out of bed and was walking on the roof of the palace. As he looked out over the city, he noticed a woman of unusual beauty taking a bath. He sent someone to find out who she was, and he was told, “She is Bathsheba, the daughter of Eliam and the wife of Uriah the Hittite.” Then David sent messengers to get her; and when she came to the palace, he slept with her. She had just completed the purification rites after having her menstrual period. Then she returned home. Later, when Bathsheba discovered that she was pregnant, she sent David a message, saying, “I’m pregnant.”
