2 1 After this David inquired of the LORD, "Shall I go up into any of the cities of Judah?" And the LORD said to him, "Go up." David said, "To which shall I go up?" And he said, "To Hebron." 2 2 So David went up there, and his two wives also, Ahin'o-am of Jezreel, and Ab'igail the widow of Nabal of Carmel. 2 3 And David brought up his men who were with him, every one with his household; and they dwelt in the towns of Hebron. 2 4 And the men of Judah came, and there they anointed David king over the house of Judah.

When they told David, "It was the men of Ja'besh-gil'ead who buried Saul," 2 5 David sent messengers to the men of Ja'besh-gil'ead, and said to them, "May you be blessed by the LORD, because you showed this loyalty to Saul your lord, and buried him! 2 6 Now may the LORD show steadfast love and faithfulness to you! And I will do good to you because you have done this thing. 2 7 Now therefore let your hands be strong, and be valiant; for Saul your lord is dead, and the house of Judah has anointed me king over them."
