1 H1732 And David H559 [H8799] said H3426 , Is there yet H3498 [H8738] any that is left H1004 of the house H7586 of Saul H6213 [H8799] , that I may show H2617 him kindness H3083 for Jonathan's sake?
2 H1004 And there was of the house H7586 of Saul H5650 a servant H8034 whose name H6717 was Ziba H7121 [H8799] . And when they had called H1732 him to David H4428 , the king H559 [H8799] said H6717 to him, Art thou Ziba H559 [H8799] ? And he said H5650 , Thy servant is he.
3 H4428 And the king H559 [H8799] said H657 , Is there not H376 yet any H1004 of the house H7586 of Saul H6213 [H8799] , that I may show H2617 the kindness H430 of God H6717 to him? And Ziba H559 [H8799] said H4428 to the king H3083 , Jonathan H1121 hath yet a son H5223 , who is lame H7272 in his feet.
4 H4428 And the king H559 [H8799] said H375 to him, Where H6717 is he? And Ziba H559 [H8799] said H4428 to the king H1004 , Behold, he is in the house H4353 of Machir H1121 , the son H5988 of Ammiel H3810 , in Lodebar.
5 H4428 Then king H1732 David H7971 [H8799] sent H3947 [H8799] , and brought H1004 him from the house H4353 of Machir H1121 , the son H5988 of Ammiel H3810 , from Lodebar.
6 H4648 Now when Mephibosheth H1121 , the son H3083 of Jonathan H1121 , the son H7586 of Saul H935 [H8799] , had come H1732 to David H5307 [H8799] , he fell H6440 on his face H7812 [H8691] , and did reverence H1732 . And David H559 [H8799] said H4648 , Mephibosheth H559 [H8799] . And he answered H5650 , Behold thy servant!
7 H1732 And David H559 [H8799] said H3372 [H8799] to him, Fear H6213 [H8800] not: for I will surely H6213 [H8799] show H2617 thee kindness H3083 for the sake of Jonathan H1 thy father H7725 [H8689] , and will restore H7704 thee all the land H7586 of Saul H1 thy father H398 [H8799] ; and thou shalt eat H3899 bread H7979 at my table H8548 continually.
8 H7812 [H8691] And he bowed H559 [H8799] himself, and said H5650 , What is thy servant H6437 [H8804] , that thou shouldest look H4191 [H8801] upon such a dead H3611 dog as I am?
9 H4428 Then the king H7121 [H8799] called H6717 to Ziba H7586 , Saul's H5288 servant H559 [H8799] , and said H5414 [H8804] to him, I have given H113 to thy master's H1121 son H1961 [H8804] all that pertained H7586 to Saul H1004 and to all his house.
10 H1121 Thou therefore, and thy sons H5650 , and thy servants H5647 [H8804] , shall till H127 the land H935 [H8689] for him, and thou shalt bring H113 in the fruits, that thy master's H1121 son H3899 may have food H398 [H8804] to eat H4648 : but Mephibosheth H113 thy master's H1121 son H398 [H8799] shall eat H3899 bread H8548 always H7979 at my table H6717 . Now Ziba H2568 H6240 had fifteen H1121 sons H6242 and twenty H5650 servants.
11 H559 [H8799] Then said H6717 Ziba H4428 to the king H113 , According to all that my lord H4428 the king H6680 [H8762] hath commanded H5650 his servant H5650 , so shall thy servant H6213 [H8799] do H4648 . As for Mephibosheth H398 [H8802] , said the king, he shall eat H7979 at my table H259 , as one H4428 of the king's H1121 sons.
12 H4648 And Mephibosheth H6996 had a young H1121 son H8034 , whose name H4316 was Micha H4186 . And all that dwelt H1004 in the house H6717 of Ziba H5650 were servants H4648 to Mephibosheth.
