2Sa 5:1
5:1 Then came all the tribes of Israel to David unto Hebron, and
    spake, saying, Behold, we [are] thy {a} bone and thy flesh.

    (a) We are of your kindred and closely related to you.

2Sa 5:3
5:3 So all the elders of Israel came to the king to Hebron; and
    king David made a league with them in Hebron {b} before the
    LORD: and they anointed David king over Israel.

    (b) That is, taking the Lord to witness: for the ark was
        still in Abinadab's house.

2Sa 5:6
5:6 And the king and his men went to Jerusalem unto the
    Jebusites, the inhabitants of the land: which spake unto
    David, saying, Except thou take away the {c} blind and the
    lame, thou shalt not come in hither: thinking, David cannot
    come in hither.

    (c) The children of God called idols blind and lame guides:
        therefore the Jebusites meant that they should prove
        that their gods were neither blind nor lame.

2Sa 5:8
5:8 And David said on that day, Whosoever getteth up to the
    gutter, and smiteth the Jebusites, and the lame and the
    blind, [that are] hated of David's soul, [he shall be chief
    and captain]. Wherefore they said, The blind and the lame
    shall not {d} come into the house.

    (d) The idols should no longer enter into that place.

2Sa 5:9
5:9 So David dwelt in the fort, and called it the city of David.
    And David built round about from {e} Millo and inward.

    (e) He built from the town house round about to his own
        house 1Ch 11:8.

2Sa 5:19
5:19 And David {f} enquired of the LORD, saying, Shall I go up
     to the Philistines? wilt thou deliver them into mine hand?
     And the LORD said unto David, Go up: for I will doubtless
     deliver the Philistines into thine hand.

     (f) By Abiathar the priest.

2Sa 5:22
5:22 And the Philistines came up yet again, and spread
     themselves in the valley of {g} Rephaim.

     (g) Meaning the valley of giants, which David called
         Baalperazim, because of his victory.

2Sa 5:25
5:25 And David did so, as the LORD had commanded him; and smote
     the Philistines from Geba until thou come to {h} Gazer.

     (h) Which was in the tribe of Benjamin, but the Philistines
         possessed it.
