The Capture of Jerusalem

David mourned for Saul and Jonathan, and then, as God commanded him, he went to live in Hebron. And the men of the tribe of Judah made him leader and king. Immediately, Abner, the captain of Saul's army, proclaimed Ishabasheth, one of Saul's sons, king of the tribe of Benjamin and all Israel, and there was long war between 

the house of Saul and the and the house of David. But David grew stronger and stronger, and the house of Saul grew weaker and weaker.

Finally, the leaders of all the twelve tribes of Israel came to David to ask him to become king over Israel. David took the stronghold of Zion in Jerusalem, and it was named the City of David. They built him a great house of cedar and stone and proclaimed him king. David led the armies against the Philistines and the Moabites and the Syrians, and conquered them all. He dedicated the spoils of these nations to God. He reigned over all Israel forty years and gave judgment and justice to all his people.
