1 Chronicles 11:1-4 MSG

1 Then all Israel assembled before David at Hebron. "Look at us," they said. "We're your very flesh and blood.
2 In the past, yes, even while Saul was king, you were the real leader of Israel. God told you, 'You will shepherd my people Israel; you are to be the ruler of my people Israel.'"
3 When all the elders of Israel came to the king at Hebron, David made a covenant with them in the presence of God at Hebron. Then they anointed David king over Israel exactly as God had commanded through Samuel.
4 David and all Israel went to Jerusalem (it was the old Jebus, where the Jebusites lived).
