Men and Women of the Bible ~ Blogging through the Alphabet (U)

Blogging through the Alphabet Men and Women of the Bible

We are to the letter U for this week and I had to get a little creative for the women. There are not any women that are mentioned in the Bible who's name begins with U. But there are plenty of unique unnamed women found in the Bible.

Unique Unnamed Women:

The first one that comes to mind is the lady with the alabaster bottle. She heard Jesus was visiting a Pharisee's house and found her way there with an expensive oil. We don't know much about her, but she loved Jesus.

Luke 7:37 ~ And, behold, a woman in the city, which was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee's house, brought an alabaster box of ointment

In Exodus, we have the story of the unnamed princess who found Moses in the river.

In I Kings 17, we learn of the unnamed widow who helps feed Elijah.

There are also plenty of mothers, daughters, and sisters who are not named in the Bible who are also unique. All of us are unique to God in our own special way. He made every one of us unique.

Uriah: "The Lord is my light"

Uriah was Bathsheba's first husband. He was a soldier in King David's army. And he was murdered by King David's order. We don't know much more about Uriah, just that he was a great man and he was a Hittite. He was faithful to his job by not wanting to be home with his wife (when David called him home), but to be out in the field with the rest of the soldiers. He didn't want to take time off when the other men were still out there fighting.

II Samuel 11:6 ~ And David sent to Joab, saying, Send me Uriah the Hittite. And Joab sent Uriah to David.

II Samuel 11:11 ~  And Uriah said unto David, The ark, and Israel, and Judah, abide in tents; and my lord Joab, and the servants of my lord, are encamped in the open fields; shall I then go into mine house, to eat and to drink, and to lie with my wife? as thou livest, and as thy soul liveth, I will not do this thing.

II Samuel 11:15-17 ~ And he wrote in the letter, saying, Set ye Uriah in the forefront of the hottest battle, and retire ye from him, that he may be smitten, and die. And it came to pass, when Joab observed the city, that he assigned Uriah unto a place where he knew that valiant men were. And the men of the city went out, and fought with Joab: and there fell some of the people of the servants of David; and Uriah the Hittite died also.
