2 Samuel 9

CLV(i) 1 And David said, `Is there yet any left to the house of Saul, and I do with him kindness because of Jonathan?. 2 And the house of Saul has a servant, and his name [is] Ziba, and they call for him unto David; and the king said unto him, `Are you Ziba?' and he said, `Your servant.. 3 And the king said, `Is there not yet a man to the house of Saul, and I do with him the kindness of Elohim?' And Ziba said unto the king, `Jonathan has yet a son--lame.. 4 And the king said to him, `Where [is] he?' and Ziba said unto the king, `Lo, he [is] in the house of Machir, son of Ammiel, in Lo-Debar.. 5 And king David sends, and takes him out of the house of Machir son of Ammiel, of Lo-Debar, 6 and Mephibosheth son of Jonathan, son of Saul, comes unto David, and falls on his face, and does obeisance, and David said, `Mephibosheth;' and he said, `Lo, your servant.. 7 And David said to him, `Be not afraid; for I certainly do with you kindness because of Jonathan your father, and have given back to you all the field of Saul your father, and you do eat bread at my table continually.. 8 And he bows himself, and said, `What [is] your servant, that you have turned unto the dead dog--such as I?. 9 And the king calls unto Ziba servant of Saul, and said unto him, `All that was to Saul and to all his house, I have given to the son of your lord, 10 and you have served for him the land, you and your sons, and your servants, and have brought in, and there has been to the son of your lord bread, and he has eaten it; and Mephibosheth son of your lord does eat continually bread at my table;' and Ziba has fifteen sons and twenty servants. 11 And Ziba said unto the king, `According to all that my lord the king commands his servant, so does your servant;' as to Mephibosheth, `he is eating at my table ([said the king]) as one of the sons of the king.. 12 And Mephibosheth has a young son, and his name [is] Micha, and every one dwelling in the house of Ziba [are] servants to Mephibosheth. 13 And Mephibosheth is dwelling in Jerusalem, for at the table of the king he is eating continually, and he [is] lame of his two feet.
