Second Samuel 9


9:1 And David said, Is there yet any that is left of the house
 of Saul, that I may show him kindness for Jonathan's sake?
9:2 And [there was] of the house of Saul a servant whose name
 [was] Ziba. And when they had called him to David, the king
 said to him, [Art] thou Ziba? And he said, Thy servant [is he].
9:3 And the king said, [Is] there not yet any of the house of
 Saul, that I may show the kindness of God to him? and Ziba said
 to the king, Jonathan hath yet a son, [who is] lame in [his]
 feet.
9:4 And the king said to him, Where [is] he? And Ziba said to
 the king, Behold, he [is] in the house of Machir, the son of
 Ammiel, in Lo-debar.
9:5 Then king David sent, and brought him from the house of
 Machir, the son of Ammiel, from Lo-debar.
9:6 Now when Mephibosheth, the son of Jonathan, the son of Saul,
 had come to David, he fell on his face, and did reverence. And
 David said, Mephibosheth. And he answered, Behold thy servant!
9:7 And David said to him, Fear not: for I will surely show thee
 kindness for the sake of Jonathan thy father, and will restore
 thee all the land of Saul thy father; and thou shalt eat bread
 at my table continually.
9:8 And he bowed himself, and said, What [is] thy servant, that
 thou shouldst look upon such a dead dog as I [am]?
9:9 Then the king called to Ziba, Saul's servant, and said to
 him, I have given to thy master's son all that pertained to
 Saul, and to all his house.
9:10 Thou therefore, and thy sons, and thy servants, shall till
 the land for him, and thou shalt bring in [the fruits], that
 thy master's son may have food to eat: but Mephibosheth thy
 master's son shall eat bread always at my table. Now Ziba had
 fifteen sons and twenty servants.
9:11 Then said Ziba to the king, According to all that my lord
 the king hath commanded his servant, so shall thy servant do.
 As for Mephibosheth, [said the king], he shall eat at my table,
 as one of the king's sons.
9:12 And Mephibosheth had a young son, whose name [was] Micah.
 And all that dwelt in the house of Ziba [were] servants to
 Mephibosheth.
9:13 So Mephibosheth dwelt in Jerusalem: for he ate continually
 at the king's table; and was lame in both his feet.
