David’s Army Clashes with the Army of Saul

2:8 Now Abner son of Ner, the general in command of Saul’s army, had taken Saul’s son Ish-bosheth 1  and had brought him to Mahanaim. 2:9 He appointed him king over Gilead, the Geshurites, 2  Jezreel, Ephraim, Benjamin, and all Israel. 2:10 Ish-bosheth son of Saul was forty years old when he began to rule over Israel. He ruled two years. However, the people 3  of Judah followed David. 2:11 David was king in Hebron over the people of Judah for seven and a half years. 4
