SEV Biblia, Chapter 5:1 Â¶ Y vinieron todas las tribus de Israel a David en Hebrón, y hablaron, diciendo: He aquí nosotros somos tus huesos y tú carne.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Samuel 5:1 Verse 1. Then came all the tribes of Israel] Ish-bosheth the king, and Abner the general, being dead, they had no hope of maintaining a separate kingdom, and therefore thought it better to submit to David's authority.
And they founded their resolution on three good arguments: 1. David was their own countryman; We are thy bone and thy flesh. 2. Even in Saul's time David had been their general, and had always led them to victory; Thou wast he that leddest out and broughtest in Israel. 3. God had appointed him to the kingdom, to govern and protect the people; The Lord said to thee, Thou shalt feed my people and be a captain over Israel.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 1. Then came all the tribes of Israel to David unto Hebron , etc.] All the rest of the tribes, save the tribe of Judah, who had made him king over them in Hebron seven years ago. These were ambassadors sent in the name of the several tribes to him, quickly after the deaths of Abner and Ishbosheth; from having any hand in which David had sufficiently cleared himself, and which had tended to reconcile the minds of the people of Israel to him: and spake, saying, we [are] thy bone and thy flesh ; for though he was of the tribe of Judah, yet as all the tribes sprung from one man, they were all one bone, flesh, and blood; all nearly related to each other, all of the same general family of which David was; and so, according to their law, a fit person to be their king, ( Deuteronomy 16:18-17:13); and from whom they might expect clemency and tenderness, being so near akin to them.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-5 - David was anointed king a third time. His advances were gradual, tha his faith might be tried, and that he might gain experience. Thus his kingdom typified that of the Messiah, which was to come to its heigh by degrees. Thus Jesus became our Brother, took upon him our nature dwelt in it that he might become our Prince and Saviour: thus the humbled sinner takes encouragement from the endearing relation, applie for his salvation, submits to his authority, and craves his protection.
