2 Samuel 9 (WEBP)

[1] David said, “Is there yet any who is left of Saul’s house, that I may show him kindness for Jonathan’s sake?”
[2] There was of Saul’s house a servant whose name was Ziba, and they called him to David; and the king said to him, “Are you Ziba?” He said, “I am your servant.”
[3] The king said, “Is there not yet any of Saul’s house, that I may show the kindness of God to him?” Ziba said to the king, “Jonathan still has a son, who is lame in his feet.”
[4] The king said to him, “Where is he?” Ziba said to the king, “Behold, he is in the house of Machir the son of Ammiel, in Lo Debar.”
[5] Then King David sent and brought him out of the house of Machir the son of Ammiel, from Lo Debar.
[6] Mephibosheth, the son of Jonathan, the son of Saul, came to David, fell on his face, and showed respect. David said, “Mephibosheth?” He answered, “Behold, your servant!”
[7] David said to him, “Don’t be afraid, for I will surely show you kindness for Jonathan your father’s sake, and will restore to you all the land of Saul your father. You will eat bread at my table continually.”
[8] He bowed down, and said, “What is your servant, that you should look at such a dead dog as I am?”
[9] Then the king called to Ziba, Saul’s servant, and said to him, “All that belonged to Saul and to all his house I have given to your master’s son.
[10] Till the land for him—you, your sons, and your servants. Bring in the harvest, that your master’s son may have bread to eat; but Mephibosheth your master’s son will always eat bread at my table.” Now Ziba had fifteen sons and twenty servants.
[11] Then Ziba said to the king, “According to all that my lord the king commands his servant, so your servant will do.” So Mephibosheth ate at the king’s table like one of the king’s sons.
[12] Mephibosheth had a young son, whose name was Mica. All who lived in Ziba’s house were servants to Mephibosheth.
[13] So Mephibosheth lived in Jerusalem, for he ate continually at the king’s table. He was lame in both his feet.

2 Samuel 9 (KJVS)

[1] And David H1732 said H559 (8799), Is there yet H3426 any that is left H3498 (8738) of the house H1004 of Saul H7586, that I may shew H6213 (8799) him kindness H2617 for Jonathan’s H3083 sake?
[2] And [there was] of the house H1004 of Saul H7586 a servant H5650 whose name H8034 [was] Ziba H6717. And when they had called H7121 (8799) him unto David H1732, the king H4428 said H559 (8799) unto him, [Art] thou Ziba H6717? And he said H559 (8799), Thy servant H5650 [is he].
[3] And the king H4428 said H559 (8799), [Is] there not H657 yet any H376 of the house H1004 of Saul H7586, that I may shew H6213 (8799) the kindness H2617 of God H430 unto him? And Ziba H6717 said H559 (8799) unto the king H4428, Jonathan H3083 hath yet a son H1121, [which is] lame H5223 on [his] feet H7272.
[4] And the king H4428 said H559 (8799) unto him, Where H375 [is] he? And Ziba H6717 said H559 (8799) unto the king H4428, Behold, he [is] in the house H1004 of Machir H4353, the son H1121 of Ammiel H5988, in Lodebar H3810.
[5] Then king H4428 David H1732 sent H7971 (8799), and fetched H3947 (8799) him out of the house H1004 of Machir H4353, the son H1121 of Ammiel H5988, from Lodebar H3810.
[6] Now when Mephibosheth H4648, the son H1121 of Jonathan H3083, the son H1121 of Saul H7586, was come H935 (8799) unto David H1732, he fell H5307 (8799) on his face H6440, and did reverence H7812 (8691). And David H1732 said H559 (8799), Mephibosheth H4648. And he answered H559 (8799), Behold thy servant H5650!
[7] And David H1732 said H559 (8799) unto him, Fear H3372 (8799) not: for I will surely H6213 (8800) shew H6213 (8799) thee kindness H2617 for Jonathan H3083 thy father’s H1 sake, and will restore H7725 (8689) thee all the land H7704 of Saul H7586 thy father H1; and thou shalt eat H398 (8799) bread H3899 at my table H7979 continually H8548.
[8] And he bowed H7812 (8691) himself, and said H559 (8799), What [is] thy servant H5650, that thou shouldest look H6437 (8804) upon such a dead H4191 (8801) dog H3611 as I [am]?
[9] Then the king H4428 called H7121 (8799) to Ziba H6717, Saul’s H7586 servant H5288, and said H559 (8799) unto him, I have given H5414 (8804) unto thy master’s H113 son H1121 all that pertained H1961 (8804) to Saul H7586 and to all his house H1004.
[10] Thou therefore, and thy sons H1121, and thy servants H5650, shall till H5647 (8804) the land H127 for him, and thou shalt bring H935 (8689) in [the fruits], that thy master’s H113 son H1121 may have food H3899 to eat H398 (8804): but Mephibosheth H4648 thy master’s H113 son H1121 shall eat H398 (8799) bread H3899 alway H8548 at my table H7979. Now Ziba H6717 had fifteen H2568 H6240 sons H1121 and twenty H6242 servants H5650.
[11] Then said H559 (8799) Ziba H6717 unto the king H4428, According to all that my lord H113 the king H4428 hath commanded H6680 (8762) his servant H5650, so shall thy servant H5650 do H6213 (8799). As for Mephibosheth H4648, [said the king], he shall eat H398 (8802) at my table H7979, as one H259 of the king’s H4428 sons H1121.
[12] And Mephibosheth H4648 had a young H6996 son H1121, whose name H8034 [was] Micha H4316. And all that dwelt H4186 in the house H1004 of Ziba H6717 [were] servants H5650 unto Mephibosheth H4648.
[13] So Mephibosheth H4648 dwelt H3427 (8802) in Jerusalem H3389: for he did eat H398 (8802) continually H8548 at the king’s H4428 table H7979; and was lame H6455 on both H8147 his feet H7272.

Young’s Literal Translation

2 Samuel 9 (YLT)

[1] And David saith, ‘Is there yet any left to the house of Saul, and I do with him kindness because of Jonathan?’
[2] And the house of Saul hath a servant, and his name is Ziba, and they call for him unto David; and the king saith unto him, ‘Art thou Ziba?’ and he saith, ‘Thy servant.’
[3] And the king saith, ‘Is there not yet a man to the house of Saul, and I do with him the kindness of God?’ And Ziba saith unto the king, ‘Jonathan hath yet a son-lame.’
[4] And the king saith to him, ‘Where is he?’ and Ziba saith unto the king, ‘Lo, he is in the house of Machir, son of Ammiel, in Lo-Debar.’
[5] And king David sendeth, and taketh him out of the house of Machir son of Ammiel, of Lo-Debar,
[6] and Mephibosheth son of Jonathan, son of Saul, cometh unto David, and falleth on his face, and doth obeisance, and David saith, ‘Mephibosheth;’ and he saith, ‘Lo, thy servant.’
[7] And David saith to him, ‘Be not afraid; for I certainly do with thee kindness because of Jonathan thy father, and have given back to thee all the field of Saul thy father, and thou dost eat bread at my table continually.’
[8] And he boweth himself, and saith, ‘What is thy servant, that thou hast turned unto the dead dog-such as I?’
[9] And the king calleth unto Ziba servant of Saul, and saith unto him, ‘All that was to Saul and to all his house, I have given to the son of thy lord,
[10] and thou hast served for him the land, thou and thy sons, and thy servants, and hast brought in, and there hath been to the son of thy lord bread, and he hath eaten it; and Mephibosheth son of thy lord doth eat continually bread at my table;’ and Ziba hath fifteen sons and twenty servants.
[11] And Ziba saith unto the king, ‘According to all that my lord the king commandeth his servant, so doth thy servant;’ as to Mephibosheth, ‘he is eating at my table (saith the king) as one of the sons of the king.’
[12] And Mephibosheth hath a young son, and his name is Micha, and every one dwelling in the house of Ziba are servants to Mephibosheth.
[13] And Mephibosheth is dwelling in Jerusalem, for at the table of the king he is eating continually, and he is lame of his two feet.
