2 Samuel 5:1-3 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

David, King of Israel

All the tribes of Israel came to David at Hebron and said, “Here we are, your own flesh and blood.[a] Even while Saul was king over us, you were the one who led us out to battle and brought us back. The Lord also said to you, ‘You will shepherd My people Israel and be ruler over Israel.’”

So all the elders of Israel came to the king at Hebron. King David made a covenant with them at Hebron in the Lord’s presence, and they anointed David king over Israel.
