David and Mephibosheth in the Bible Story
Couldn't wait for you to come back again so we can share more Daily
Bread together! We last left David defeating many of Israel's
enemies to fulfill the promise that the Lord made to keep Israel
safe. Let's see what happens next ...
One day, David asked if there was anyone left in Saul's family still
alive so that for Jonathan's sake he could show kindness to them.
There was one servant of Saul, name Ziba, that was summoned and David
asked if there was anyone left of the family of Saul. Ziba told David
that Jonathan still had a son alive, who was crippled. (Remember
Mephibosheth who was mentioned briefly in Chapter 4?)

David and Mephibosheth in the Bible Concerns
David sent for the boy and when Mephilbosheth met David, he fell on
his face in reverence. David said, "Mephibosheth." He responded,
"You look upon your servant." David responded, "Don't be afraid. I
wanted you to come so I could show you kindness for Jonathan your
father's sake. I will return to you all of Saul's land and I want
you to live here with me.
Mephibosheth bowed to David saying, "Who am I, that you should show
such kindness to me? I'm nothing but a dead dog." The king called
Ziba, Saul's servant, and said, "I have given your master's grandson
all that used to belong to Saul and his family.
You and your sons and servants will work the land and bring what it
produces to Jerusalem for Mephibosheth. But Mephibosheth shall live
here with me. Ziba, having 15 sons and 20 servants, agreed, and
complied with all the king said. From that day on, Mephibosheth lived
at the palace and was cared for as if he were a son of David.
Mephibosheth also had a little boy named Micha.
Saul's Son Mephibosheth Bible Conclusion
David and Mephibosheth in the Bible Summary
So all of Ziba's family became the servants of Mephibosheth, who,
crippled in both legs, continued to live in Jerusalem with the king.
David made sure to keep his promise of showing Jonathan's family
kindness. Even though Jonathan had died, David, being a very loyal
man, kept true to his word.
