1 H1732 And David H559 said, H3426 Is there yet H3498 any that is left H1004 of the house H7586 of Saul, H6213 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 and they called H1732 him unto David; H4428 and the king H559 said H6717 unto him, Art thou Ziba? H559 And he said, H5650 Thy servant is he.
3 H4428 And the king H559 said, H657 Is there not H376 yet any H1004 of the house H7586 of Saul, H6213 that I may show H2617 the kindness H430 of God H6717 unto him? And Ziba H559 said H4428 unto the king, H3083 Jonathan H1121 hath yet a son, H5223 who is lame H7272 of his feet.
4 H4428 And the king H559 said H375 unto him, Where H6717 is he? And Ziba H559 said H4428 unto the king, H1004 Behold, he is in the house H4353 of Machir H1121 the son H5988 of Ammiel, H3810 in Lo-debar.
5 H4428 Then king H1732 David H7971 sent, H3947 and fetched H1004 him out of the house H4353 of Machir H1121 the son H5988 of Ammiel, H3810 from Lo-debar.
6 H4648 And Mephibosheth, H1121 the son H3083 of Jonathan, H1121 the son H7586 of Saul, H935 came H1732 unto David, H5307 and fell H6440 on his face, H7812 and did obeisance. H1732 And David H559 said, H4648 Mephibosheth. H559 And he answered, H5650 Behold, thy servant!
7 H1732 And David H559 said H3372 unto him, Fear H6213 not; for I will surely H6213 show H2617 thee kindness H3083 for Jonathan H1 thy father's H7725 sake, and will restore H7704 thee all the land H7586 of Saul H1 thy father; H398 and thou shalt eat H3899 bread H7979 at my table H8548 continually.
8 H7812 And he did obeisance, H559 and said, H5650 What is thy servant, H6437 that thou shouldest look H4191 upon such a dead H3611 dog as I am?
9 H4428 Then the king H7121 called H6717 to Ziba, H7586 Saul's H5288 servant, H559 and said H1961 unto him, All that pertained H7586 to Saul H1004 and to all his house H5414 have I given H113 unto thy master's H1121 son.
10 H5647 And thou shalt till H127 the land H1121 for him, thou, and thy sons, H5650 and thy servants; H935 and thou shalt bring H113 in the fruits, that thy master's H1121 son H3899 may have bread H398 to eat: H4648 but Mephibosheth H113 thy master's H1121 son H398 shall eat H3899 bread H8548 alway H7979 at my table. H6717 Now Ziba H2568 had fifteen H1121 sons H6242 and twenty H5650 servants.
11 H559 Then said H6717 Ziba H4428 unto the king, H113 According to all that my lord H4428 the king H6680 commandeth H5650 his servant, H5650 so shall thy servant H6213 do. H4648 As for Mephibosheth, H398 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 Mica. H4186 And all that dwelt H1004 in the house H6717 of Ziba H5650 were servants H4648 unto Mephibosheth.
