OF THE KINGS OF ISRAEL AMD JUDAII: THEIR APPOINTMENT AND ESTABLISHMENT DIVINE.
GiDEONJudgedlsraeljhe had seventy sons. Abimelech, one of the sons of Gideon by his concubine, by subtilty with the men of Shechem, that it was better one should reign, than all the seventy sons, procures money, hires vain and light persons, and kills all bis brethren, except Jotham, the youngest, who hid himself. Abimelech, by the men of Shechem, and the house of Millo, made king. After a few years, he was slain by a piece of mill-stone, which a woman threw down upon him: after whom judges governed a long time, till Samuel.— Judges ix.
Israel, by the elders, came to Samuel, and said, Make us a king to judge
us, like all the nations: and though God was displeased at it, and said, that they had not rejected Samuel, but God himself, that he should not reign over them; yet he bids Samuel hearken unto them, and make them a king.—1 Sam. viii. 5. 7. 22.
Samuel, before Saul came, was told by the Lord of his coming; and that he should be the man whom he should anoint king. Samuel anoints him king accordingly.—1 Sam. ix. x.

After the death of Ishbosheth (being slain), came all the tribes of Israel to David unto Hebron, &c. And all the elders of Israel came to the king to Hebron; and king David made a league with them; and they anointed David king over Israel.— 2 Sam. v. 1—3.
Adouijalv, David's Sob, being about to set up himself, David sets up Solomon.— 1 Kings i. 5, &c.
