How far Abner's deserting the house of Saul, his
murder, and the murder of Ish-bosheth, might contribute to the
perfecting of the revolution, and the establishing of David as king
over all Israel, does not appear; but, it should seem, that happy
change followed presently thereupon, which in this chapter we have
an account of. Here is, I. David anointed king by all the tribes,
ver. 1-5. II. Making
himself master of the strong-hold of Zion, ver. 6-10. III. Building himself a house
and strengthening himself in his kingdom, ver. 11, 12. IV. His children that were
born after this, ver.
13-16. V. His victories over the Philistines, ver. 17-25.
