9:1

David Finds Mephibosheth

1 

Then David asked, “Is anyone still left from the family 2  of Saul, so that I may extend kindness to him for the sake of Jonathan?

9:2 Now there was a servant from Saul’s house named Ziba, so he was summoned to David. The king asked him, “Are you Ziba?” He replied, “At your service.” 3  9:3 The king asked, “Is there not someone left from Saul’s family, 4  that I may extend God’s kindness to him?” Ziba said to the king, “One of Jonathan’s sons is left; both of his feet are crippled.” 9:4 The king asked him, “Where is he?” Ziba told the king, “He is at the house of Makir son of Ammiel in Lo Debar.

9:5 So King David had him brought 5  from the house of Makir son of Ammiel in 6  Lo Debar. 9:6 When Mephibosheth son of Jonathan, the son of Saul, came to David, he bowed low with his face toward the ground. 7  David said, “Mephibosheth?” He replied, “Yes, at your service.” 8 

9:7 David said to him, “Don’t be afraid, because I will certainly extend kindness to you for the sake of Jonathan your father. You will be a regular guest at my table.” 9
