John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
2 Samuel 12:7

And Nathan said to David, thou [art] the man
The rich man, or who is designed by him in the parable, and answers to him F20:

thus saith the Lord God of Israel, I anointed thee king over Israel;
that is, ordered Samuel to anoint him, who did, ( 1 Samuel 16:1 1 Samuel 16:12 1 Samuel 16:13 ) ; to which this chiefly refers; and after that he was anointed first by the tribe of Judah, and then by all the tribes of Israel, by the appointment and providence of God; and this was great dignity he designed for him, and raised him to:

and I delivered thee out of the hand of Saul;
when he persecuted him, and sought to take away his life.
