2 Samuel 19:19-29

NLT 19 “My lord the king, please forgive me,” he pleaded. “Forget the terrible thing your servant did when you left Jerusalem. May the king put it out of his mind. NIV 19 and said to him, “May my lord not hold me guilty. Do not remember how your servant did wrong on the day my lord the king left Jerusalem. May the king put it out of his mind. NLT 20 I know how much I sinned. That is why I have come here today, the very first person in all Israel to greet my lord the king.” NIV 20 For I your servant know that I have sinned, but today I have come here as the first from the tribes of Joseph to come down and meet my lord the king.” NLT 21 Then Abishai son of Zeruiah said, “Shimei should die, for he cursed the LORD ’s anointed king!” NIV 21 Then Abishai son of Zeruiah said, “Shouldn’t Shimei be put to death for this? He cursed the LORD’s anointed.” NLT 22 “Who asked your opinion, you sons of Zeruiah!” David exclaimed. “Why have you become my adversary today? This is not a day for execution, for today I am once again the king of Israel!” NIV 22 David replied, “What does this have to do with you, you sons of Zeruiah? What right do you have to interfere? Should anyone be put to death in Israel today? Don’t I know that today I am king over Israel?” NLT 23 Then, turning to Shimei, David vowed, “Your life will be spared.” NIV 23 So the king said to Shimei, “You shall not die.” And the king promised him on oath. NLT 24 Now Mephibosheth, Saul’s grandson, came down from Jerusalem to meet the king. He had not cared for his feet, trimmed his beard, or washed his clothes since the day the king left Jerusalem. NIV 24 Mephibosheth, Saul’s grandson, also went down to meet the king. He had not taken care of his feet or trimmed his mustache or washed his clothes from the day the king left until the day he returned safely. NLT 25 “Why didn’t you come with me, Mephibosheth?” the king asked him. NIV 25 When he came from Jerusalem to meet the king, the king asked him, “Why didn’t you go with me, Mephibosheth?” NLT 26 Mephibosheth replied, “My lord the king, my servant Ziba deceived me. I told him, ‘Saddle my donkey so I can go with the king.’ For as you know I am crippled. NIV 26 He said, “My lord the king, since I your servant am lame, I said, ‘I will have my donkey saddled and will ride on it, so I can go with the king.’ But Ziba my servant betrayed me. NLT 27 Ziba has slandered me by saying that I refused to come. But I know that my lord the king is like an angel of God, so do what you think is best. NIV 27 And he has slandered your servant to my lord the king. My lord the king is like an angel of God; so do whatever you wish. NLT 28 All my relatives and I could expect only death from you, my lord, but instead you have honored me by allowing me to eat at your own table! What more can I ask?” NIV 28 All my grandfather’s descendants deserved nothing but death from my lord the king, but you gave your servant a place among those who eat at your table. So what right do I have to make any more appeals to the king?” NLT 29 “You’ve said enough,” David replied. “I’ve decided that you and Ziba will divide your land equally between you.” NIV 29 The king said to him, “Why say more? I order you and Ziba to divide the land.”
