2 Samuel 2:1; 2 Samuel 2:4; 2 Samuel 2:11
Later, David prayed to the Lord, saying, "Should I go up to any of the cities of Judah?" The Lord said to David, "Go." David asked, "Where should I go?" The Lord answered, "To Hebron."
Then the men of Judah came to Hebron and appointed David king over Judah. They told David that the men of Jabesh Gilead had buried Saul.
David was king in Hebron for seven years and six months.
