Read the Bible in 2011 ◊ Week 18: Tuesday
Then all the tribes of Israel came to David at
Hebron and said, “Behold, we are your bone
and your flesh. Previously, when Saul was king
over us, you were the one who led Israel out
and in And the LORD said to you, ‘You will
shepherd My people Israel, and you will be a
ruler over Israel.’”
So all the elders of Israel came to the king at Hebron, and King David made a covenant with them before the LORD at Hebron; then they anointed David king over Israel. David was thirty years old when he became king, and he reigned forty years.
2 Samuel 5:1–4
