2 Samuel 5:1; 2 Samuel 19:12-13
Then all the tribes of Israel came to David at Hebron and said, "Behold, we are your bone and your flesh.
'You are my brothers; you are my bone and my flesh. Why then should you be the last to bring back the king?'
"Say to Amasa, 'Are you not my bone and my flesh? May God do so to me, and more also, if you will not be commander of the army before me continually in place of Joab.' "
