2 Samuel 9

NCV 1 David asked, "Is anyone still left in Saul's family? I want to show kind- ness to that person for Jonathan's sake!" NIV 1 David asked, “Is there anyone still left of the house of Saul to whom I can show kindness for Jonathan’s sake?” NCV 2 Now there was a servant named Ziba from Saul's family. So David's servants called Ziba to him. King David said to him, "Are you Ziba?" He answered, "Yes, I am your servant." 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. NCV 3 The king asked, "Is anyone left in Saul's family? I want to show God's kindness to that person." Ziba answered the king, "Jonathan has a son still living who is crippled in both feet." 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.” NCV 4 The king asked Ziba, "Where is this son?" Ziba answered, "He is at the house of Makir 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.” NCV 5 Then King David had servants bring Jonathan's son from the house of Makir son of Ammiel in Lo Debar. NIV 5 So King David had him brought from Lo Debar, from the house of Makir son of Ammiel. NCV 6 Mephibosheth, Jonathan's son, came before David and bowed facedown on the floor. David said, "Mephibosheth!" Mephibosheth said, "I am your servant." 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. NCV 7 David said to him, "Don't be afraid. I will be kind to you for your father Jonathan's sake. I will give you back all the land of your grandfather Saul, and you will always eat at my table." 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.” NCV 8 Mephibosheth bowed to David again and said, "You are being very kind to me, your servant! And I am no better than a dead dog!" NIV 8 Mephibosheth bowed down and said, “What is your servant, that you should notice a dead dog like me?” NCV 9 Then King David called Saul's servant Ziba. David said to him, "I have given your master's grandson everything that belonged to Saul and his family. 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. NCV 10 You, your sons, and your servants will farm the land and harvest the crops. Then your family will have food to eat. But Mephibosheth, your master's grandson, will always eat at my table." (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.) NCV 11 Ziba said to King David, "I, your servant, will do everything my master, the king, commands me." So Mephibosheth ate at David's table as if he were 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. NCV 12 Mephibosheth had a young son named Mica. Everyone in Ziba's family became Mephibosheth's servants. NIV 12 Mephibosheth had a young son named Mika, and all the members of Ziba’s household were servants of Mephibosheth. NCV 13 Mephibosheth lived in Jerusalem, because he always ate at the king's table. And he was crippled in both feet. NIV 13 And Mephibosheth lived in Jerusalem, because he always ate at the king’s table; he was lame in both feet.
