reigned two years
2 Samuel 2:10
2:10 reigned two years. Ishbosheth reigned “over all Israel” (II Samuel 2:9) for only two years. The implication is that it took him five and a half years to consolidate all the tribes under his rule after Saul’s death. David in the meantime served as king over Judah for seven and a half years (II Samuel 2:11).
