2 Samuel 5:9 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

"All the elders of Israel came" is a repetition of 2 Samuel 5:1, except that the expression "all the tribes of Israel" is more distinctly defined as meaning "all the elders of Israel." "So all the elders came; ... and king David made a covenant with them in Hebron before the Lord (see at 2 Samuel 3:21): and they anointed David king over (all) Israel." The writer of the Chronicles adds, "according to the word of the Lord through Samuel," i.e., so that the command of the Lord to Samuel, to anoint David king over Israel (1 Samuel 16:1, 1 Samuel 16:12), found its complete fulfilment in this.
