2 Samuel 2:1; 2 Samuel 2:4; 2 Samuel 2:11
Some time later, David inquired of the Lord: "Should I go to one of the towns of Judah?" The Lord answered him, "Go." Then David asked, "Where should I go?" "To Hebron," the Lord replied.
Then the men of Judah came, and there they anointed David king over the house of Judah. They told David: "It was the men of Jabesh-gilead who buried Saul."
The length of time that David was king in Hebron over the house of Judah was seven years and six months.
