anointed David king
2 Samuel 2:4
2:4 anointed David king. It is noteworthy that David was actually anointed king on three different occasions. His divine anointing came through Samuel (I Samuel 16:13), but then this was supplemented on the human level—first by David’s own tribe of Judah, and eventually by the other tribes (II Samuel 2:4; 5:3).
