Though he prevailed over the mighty Goliath, clothed
only in the armor of righteousness, he later lost the battle with Bathsheba for
lack of such armament (cf. 1 Sam. 17; 2 Sam. 11-12). David's is the tragic story
of one whose faith brought him to great heights yet who sold his eternal soul
through his sinful seduction of another man's wife and the eventual murder of
that faithful man. His heinous deed was so great that "he lost everything" (D&C
132:38-39; AGQ 3:145-46). The Prophet Joseph Smith stated that "David sought
repentance at the hand of God carefully with tears, for the murder of Uriah; but
he could only get it through hell: he got a promise that his soul should not be
left in hell" (TPJS, 339). However, as President Joseph Fielding Smith observed,
"Who wishes to spend a term in hell with the devil before being cleansed from
sin?" (AGQ 1:74).
In spite of being eventually redeemed from hell, David has forever lost the crown of exaltation which he might have worn in the celestial kingdom, for "no murderer hath eternal life. Even David must wait for those times of refreshing, before he can come forth and his sins be blotted out; many bodies of the Saints arose at Christ's resurrection, but it seems that David did not. Why? Because he had been a murderer." (TPJS, 188.) "For David is not ascended into the heavens," declared Peter (Acts 2:34).
