Just call him the Jennifer Aniston of the Bible, because that’s exactly who Uriah the Hittite was. He was the husband of the irresistable Bathsheba who infamously had an affair with King David while he was at war. In literature, Uriah Heep was the sleazy antagonist in Charles Dickens’ David Copperfield. Clearly, Uriah had seen better days. Well good things must truly come to those who wait, because in modern times, Uriah is at an all-time popularity high.
