David Becomes King Over Israel

5All the tribes of Israel came to David at Hebron and
said, “We are your own flesh and blood. 2 In the past,
while Saul was king over us, you were the one who led Israel on their
military campaigns. And the LORD said to you, ‘You will shepherd my
people Israel, and you will become their ruler.'”

3 When all the elders of Israel had come to King David
at Hebron, the king made a compact with them at Hebron before the LORD,
and they anointed David king over Israel.

4 David was thirty years old when he became king, and he
reigned forty years. 5 In Hebron he reigned over Judah
seven years and six months, and in Jerusalem he reigned over all Israel
and Judah thirty-three years.
