2 Samuel 9:1-13

And David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Is there yet
<03426>
any that is left
<03498> (8738)
of the house
<01004>
of Saul
<07586>_,
that I may shew
<06213> (8799)
him kindness
<02617>
for Jonathan's
<03083>
sake?
And [there was] of the house
<01004>
of Saul
<07586>
a servant
<05650>
whose name
<08034>
[was] Ziba
<06717>_.
And when they had called
<07121> (8799)
him unto David
<01732>_,
the king
<04428>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, [Art] thou Ziba
<06717>_?
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Thy servant
<05650>
[is he].
And the king
<04428>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
[Is] there not
<0657>
yet any
<0376>
of the house
<01004>
of Saul
<07586>_,
that I may shew
<06213> (8799)
the kindness
<02617>
of God
<0430>
unto him? And Ziba
<06717>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto the king
<04428>_,
Jonathan
<03083>
hath yet a son
<01121>_,
[which is] lame
<05223>
on [his] feet
<07272>_.
And the king
<04428>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Where
<0375>
[is] he? And Ziba
<06717>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto the king
<04428>_,
Behold, he [is] in the house
<01004>
of Machir
<04353>_,
the son
<01121>
of Ammiel
<05988>_,
in Lodebar
<03810>_.
Then king
<04428>
David
<01732>
sent
<07971> (8799)_,
and fetched
<03947> (8799)
him out of the house
<01004>
of Machir
<04353>_,
the son
<01121>
of Ammiel
<05988>_,
from Lodebar
<03810>_.
Now when Mephibosheth
<04648>_,
the son
<01121>
of Jonathan
<03083>_,
the son
<01121>
of Saul
<07586>_,
was come
<0935> (8799)
unto David
<01732>_,
he fell
<05307> (8799)
on his face
<06440>_,
and did reverence
<07812> (8691)_.
And David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Mephibosheth
<04648>_.
And he answered
<0559> (8799)_,
Behold thy servant
<05650>_!
{Mephibosheth: also called Meribbaal}
And David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Fear
<03372> (8799)
not: for I will surely
<06213> (8800)
shew
<06213> (8799)
thee kindness
<02617>
for Jonathan
<03083>
thy father's
<01>
sake, and will restore
<07725> (8689)
thee all the land
<07704>
of Saul
<07586>
thy father
<01>_;
and thou shalt eat
<0398> (8799)
bread
<03899>
at my table
<07979>
continually
<08548>_.
And he bowed
<07812> (8691)
himself, and said
<0559> (8799)_,
What [is] thy servant
<05650>_,
that thou shouldest look
<06437> (8804)
upon such a dead
<04191> (8801)
dog
<03611>
as I [am]?
Then the king
<04428>
called
<07121> (8799)
to Ziba
<06717>_,
Saul's
<07586>
servant
<05288>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, I have given
<05414> (8804)
unto thy master's
<0113>
son
<01121>
all that pertained
<01961> (8804)
to Saul
<07586>
and to all his house
<01004>_.
Thou therefore, and thy sons
<01121>_,
and thy servants
<05650>_,
shall till
<05647> (8804)
the land
<0127>
for him, and thou shalt bring
<0935> (8689)
in [the fruits], that thy master's
<0113>
son
<01121>
may have food
<03899>
to eat
<0398> (8804)_:
but Mephibosheth
<04648>
thy master's
<0113>
son
<01121>
shall eat
<0398> (8799)
bread
<03899>
alway
<08548>
at my table
<07979>_.
Now Ziba
<06717>
had fifteen
<02568> <06240>
sons
<01121>
and twenty
<06242>
servants
<05650>_.
Then said
<0559> (8799)
Ziba
<06717>
unto the king
<04428>_,
According to all that my lord
<0113>
the king
<04428>
hath commanded
<06680> (8762)
his servant
<05650>_,
so shall thy servant
<05650>
do
<06213> (8799)_.
As for Mephibosheth
<04648>_,
[said the king], he shall eat
<0398> (8802)
at my table
<07979>_,
as one
<0259>
of the king's
<04428>
sons
<01121>_.
And Mephibosheth
<04648>
had a young
<06996>
son
<01121>_,
whose name
<08034>
[was] Micha
<04316>_.
And all that dwelt
<04186>
in the house
<01004>
of Ziba
<06717>
[were] servants
<05650>
unto Mephibosheth
<04648>_.
So Mephibosheth
<04648>
dwelt
<03427> (8802)
in Jerusalem
<03389>_:
for he did eat
<0398> (8802)
continually
<08548>
at the king's
<04428>
table
<07979>_;
and was lame
<06455>
on both
<08147>
his feet
<07272>_.
