One day David remembered his promise with Saul and Jonathan,
and began to wonder if anyone in Saul's family was still alive.
He asked his servant if there was anyone
still alive from Saul's family.
His servant replied,
"Yes, one of Jonathan's sons, Mephibosheth, is still alive."
So David sent for him right away.
When Mephibosheth came to David,
he bowed down in fear.
But David told him,
"Please, do not be afraid,
I have only asked you to come so that I can
show kindness to you.
I am honoring the promise I made with your father."
Mephibosheth moved to Jerusalem
to live at the palace. and
ate with David at the table.
