Poole's Outline of 2 Samuel 5: David, King in Jerusalem


The tribes come to Hebron to anoint David king over all Israel:  the years of his reign at Hebron and Jerusalem:  his age, 1-5.  He taketh the strong hold of Zion from the Jebusites, and dwelleth there, 6-10.  Hiram maketh a league with David, and sendeth wood and workmen to build a house, 11, 12.  He taketh more wives, and eleven sons are born to him at Jerusalem, 13-16.  David, directed by God, smiteth the Philistines at Baal-perazim, 17-21; and again at the mulberry trees, 22-25.

Matthew Henry: '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, verses 1-5. II. Making himself master of the stronghold of Zion, verses 6-10. III. Building himself a house and strengthening himself in his kingdom, verses 11-12. IV. His children that were born after this, verses 13-16. V. His victories over the Philistines, verses 17-25.'
