2 Samuel 9

BBE 1 And David said, Is there still anyone of Saul's family living, so that I may be a friend to him, because of Jonathan? NIV 1 David asked, “Is there anyone still left of the house of Saul to whom I can show kindness for Jonathan’s sake?” BBE 2 Now there was of Saul's people a servant named Ziba, and they sent him to David; and the king said to him, Are you Ziba? And he said, I am. NIV 2 Now there was a servant of Saul’s household named Ziba. They summoned him to appear before David, and the king said to him, “Are you Ziba?” “At your service,” he replied. BBE 3 And the king said, Is there anyone of Saul's family still living, to whom I may be a friend in God's name? And Ziba said, There is a son of Jonathan, whose feet are damaged. NIV 3 The king asked, “Is there no one still alive from the house of Saul to whom I can show God’s kindness?” Ziba answered the king, “There is still a son of Jonathan; he is lame in both feet.” BBE 4 And the king said to him, Where is he? And Ziba said to the king, He is in the house of Machir, the son of Ammiel, in Lo-debar. NIV 4 “Where is he?” the king asked. Ziba answered, “He is at the house of Makir son of Ammiel in Lo Debar.” BBE 5 Then King David sent, and had him taken from Lo-debar, from the house of Machir, the son of Ammiel. NIV 5 So King David had him brought from Lo Debar, from the house of Makir son of Ammiel. BBE 6 And Mephibosheth, the son of Jonathan, came to David, and falling down on his face, gave him honour. And David said, Mephibosheth. And answering he said, Your servant is here. NIV 6 When Mephibosheth son of Jonathan, the son of Saul, came to David, he bowed down to pay him honor. David said, “Mephibosheth!” “At your service,” he replied. BBE 7 And David said to him, Have no fear: for truly I will be good to you, because of your father Jonathan, and I will give back to you all the land which was Saul's; and you will have a place at my table at all times. NIV 7 “Don’t be afraid,” David said to him, “for I will surely show you kindness for the sake of your father Jonathan. I will restore to you all the land that belonged to your grandfather Saul, and you will always eat at my table.” BBE 8 And he went down on his face before the king, and said, What is your servant, for you to take note of a dead dog such as I am? NIV 8 Mephibosheth bowed down and said, “What is your servant, that you should notice a dead dog like me?” BBE 9 Then the king sent for Ziba, Saul's servant, and said to him, All the property of Saul and of his family I have given to your master's son. NIV 9 Then the king summoned Ziba, Saul’s steward, and said to him, “I have given your master’s grandson everything that belonged to Saul and his family. BBE 10 And you and your sons and your servants are to take care of the land for him, and get in the fruit of it, so that your master's son may have food: but Mephibosheth, your master's son, will have a place at my table at all times. Now Ziba had fifteen sons and twenty servants. NIV 10 You and your sons and your servants are to farm the land for him and bring in the crops, so that your master’s grandson may be provided for. And Mephibosheth, grandson of your master, will always eat at my table.” (Now Ziba had fifteen sons and twenty servants.) BBE 11 Then Ziba said to the king, Every order which you have given to your servant will be done. As for Mephibosheth, he had a place at David's table, like one of the king's sons. NIV 11 Then Ziba said to the king, “Your servant will do whatever my lord the king commands his servant to do.” So Mephibosheth ate at David’s table like one of the king’s sons. BBE 12 And Mephibosheth had a young son named Mica. And all the people living in the house of Ziba were servants to Mephibosheth. NIV 12 Mephibosheth had a young son named Mika, and all the members of Ziba’s household were servants of Mephibosheth. BBE 13 So Mephibosheth went on living in Jerusalem; for he took all his meals at the king's table; and he had not the use of his feet. NIV 13 And Mephibosheth lived in Jerusalem, because he always ate at the king’s table; he was lame in both feet.
