Now David asked God,
"Should I move back to Judah?"
"Yes, go to Hebron"
God replied to David.
All the tribes of Israel went to David at Hebron
"Even while Saul was our king,
you were fighting for us and leading us.
We also know that God has told you
to be the shepherd of all Israelites.
Be our leader."
David made a covenant with the leaders of Israel.
and David was anointed as their king.
Then David captured Jerusalem with his army.
David knew that God had made him king
for the sake of his people Israel.
