Bible: 2 Samuel 16:1-2

David Receives Gifts from Ziba

16:1 When David had gone a short way beyond the summit, Ziba the servant of Mephibosheth was there to meet him. He had a couple of donkeys that were saddled, and on them were two hundred loaves of bread, a hundred raisin cakes, a hundred baskets of summer fruit, 1  and a container of wine.

16:2 The king asked Ziba, “Why did you bring these things?” 2  Ziba replied, “The donkeys are for the king’s family to ride on, the loaves of bread 3  and the summer fruit are for the attendants to eat, and the wine is for those who get exhausted in the desert.” 4
