Show me Kindness - 2 Samuel 9

2 Samuel 9:1 And David said, Is there yet any that is left of the  house of Saul, that I may shew him kindness for Jonathan’s  sake? 

2 Samuel 9:2 And there was of the house of Saul a servant  whose name was Ziba. And when they had called him  unto David, the king said unto him, Art thou Ziba? And he  said, Thy servant is he. 

2 Samuel 9:3 And the king said, Is there  not yet any of the house of Saul, that I may shew the  kindness of God unto him? And Ziba said unto the king,  Jonathan hath yet a son, which is lame on his feet. 

2 Samuel 9:4  And the king said unto him, Where is he? And Ziba said  unto the king, Behold, he is in the house of Machir, the  son of Ammiel, in Lo-debar.  

2 Samuel 9:5 Then king David sent, and fetched him out of the  house of Machir, the son of Ammiel, from Lo-debar. 

2 Samuel 9:6  Now when Mephibosheth, the son of Jonathan, the son of  Saul, was come unto David, he fell on his face, and did  reverence. And David said, Mephibosheth. And he  answered, Behold thy servant!  

2 Samuel 9:7 And David said unto him, Fear not: for I will surely  shew thee kindness for Jonathan thy father’s sake, and will  restore thee all the land of Saul thy father; and thou shalt eat  bread at my table continually. 


2 Samuel 9:8 And he bowed himself,  and said, What is thy servant, that thou shouldest look upon  such a dead dog as I am?  

2 Samuel 9:9 Then the king called to Ziba, Saul’s servant, and  said unto him, I have given unto thy master’s son all that  pertained to Saul and to all his house. 

2 Samuel 9:10 Thou  therefore, and thy sons, and thy servants, shall till the land  for him, and thou shalt bring in the fruits, that thy master’s  son may have food to eat: but Mephibosheth thy master’s  son shall eat bread alway at my table. Now Ziba had fifteen  sons and twenty 

2 Samuel 9:11 Then said Ziba unto the  king, According to all that my lord the king hath  commanded his servant, so shall thy servant do. As for  Mephibosheth, said the king, he shall eat at my table, as  one of the king’s sons. 

2 Samuel 9:12 And Mephibosheth had a  young son, whose name was Micha. And all that dwelt in  the house of Ziba were servants unto Mephibosheth.   

2 Samuel 9:13 So Mephibosheth dwelt in Jerusalem: for he did eat  continually at the king’s table; and was lame on both his  feet.  KJV
