\\INTRODUCTION TO SECOND SAMUEL 5\\

In this chapter we have an account of all the tribes of Israel coming
to Hebron, and anointing David king over them, \\#2Sa 5:1-5\\; of his
expedition against the Jebusites in Jerusalem, and taking from them the
strong hold of Zion, \\#2Sa 5:6-10\\; of his building an house for himself,
and of his building up his family, by taking more wives and concubines,
and having more children, whose names are given, \\#2Sa 5:11-16\\; and of
an invasion of the land by the Philistines, and David's victory over
them, \\#2Sa 5:17-25\\.
