2 Samuel 20:3 Why did David stop having "relations" with his Concubines

Question: Why did David stop having "relations" with his Concubines as seen in 2 Samuel 20:3 Answer:

2 Samuel 16:20 records the incident where David’s Concubines where raped by Absalom(David’s Son).  Because of this incident, and the culture, David could not take back these concubines as before, because of what his son had done to them.  With that, these women where basically punished, in a sense, for something that they did not do… but paid the consequences, not only for Absalom’s sin towards them, but most importantly, David’s sin… which really began this whole ordeal.  It is a example and reminder that, our actions, whether righteous or unrighteous, can and do affect those around us. -JH
