An English translation from a fluent speaker of Spanish would be:

Maybe the sexual significance that you could give this verse could ferret
out David's thoughts that undoubtedly he's been thinking about his sin and
desires to prove his subordinate (subject?): the washing of his feet in his
house after the time in battle suggests going to bed with his wife (verse
11), a thought that Uriah disregards and for that reason doesn't go to his
house. Remember that sexual abstinence was a religious law of war. What
would we think if immediately after a spiritual retreat the pastor gave
aphrodisiacs to the participants?
