2 Samuel 2:1; 2 Samuel 2:4; 2 Samuel 2:11
It happened after this, that David inquired of the LORD, saying, Shall I go up into any of the cities of Yehudah? the LORD said to him, Go up. David said, Where shall I go up? He said, To Hevron.
The men of Yehudah came, and there they anointed David king over the house of Yehudah. They told David, saying, The men of Yavesh-Gil`ad were those who buried Sha'ul.
The time that David was king in Hevron over the house of Yehudah was seven years and six months.
