English Standard Version
Chapter 2 3
And David brought up his men who were with him, everyone with his household, and they lived in the towns of Hebron. 4
And the men of Judah came, and there they anointed David king over the house of Judah. When they told David, “It was the men of Jabesh-gilead who buried Saul,” 5
David sent messengers to the men of Jabesh-gilead and said to them, “May you be blessed by the LORD, because you showed this loyalty to Saul your lord and buried him. 6
Now may the LORD show steadfast love and faithfulness to you. And I will do good to you because you have done this thing.
