- 1 Then R134 all Israel gathered to David at Hebron and F138 said, "Behold, we are your bone and your flesh. 2 "In times past, even when Saul was king, you were the one who led out and brought in Israel; and the LORD your God said to you, `You R135 shall shepherd My people Israel, and you shall be prince over My people Israel.' " 3 So all the elders of Israel came to the king at Hebron, and David made a covenant with them in Hebron before the LORD; and they R136 anointed David king over Israel, according R137 to the word of the LORD through Samuel. 4 Then David and all Israel went to Jerusalem (that R138 is, Jebus); and the Jebusites, the inhabitants of the land, were there. 5 The inhabitants of Jebus said to David, "You shall not enter here." Nevertheless David captured the stronghold of Zion (that is, the city of David). 6 Now David had said, "Whoever strikes down a Jebusite first shall be chief and commander." Joab R139 the son of Zeruiah went up first, so he became chief. 7 Then David dwelt in the stronghold; therefore it was called the city of David. 8 He built F139 the city all around, from the Millo F140 even to the surrounding area; and Joab repaired F141 the rest of the city. 9 David R140 became greater and greater, for the LORD of hosts was with him.
