David's kindness to Miphiboseth for the sake of his father Jonathan.

[1] And David said: Is there any one, think you, left of the house of Saul, that I may shew kindness to him for Jonathan's sake?
Et dixit David : Putasne est aliquis qui remanserit de domo Saul, ut faciam cum eo misericordiam propter Jonathan?

[2] Now there was of the house of Saul, a servant named Siba: and when the king had called him to him, he said to him: Art thou Siba? And he answered: I am Siba thy servant.
Erat autem de domo Saul, servus nomine Siba : quem cum vocasset rex ad se, dixit ei : Tune es Siba? Et ille respondit : Ego sum servus tuus.

[3] And the king said: Is there any one left of the house of Saul, that I may shew the mercy of God unto him? And Siba said to the king: There is a son of Jonathan left, who is lame of his feet.
Et ait rex : Numquid superest aliquis de domo Saul, ut faciam cum eo misericordiam Dei? Dixitque Siba regi : Superest filius Jonathae, debilis pedibus.

[4] Where is he? said he. And Siba said to the king: Behold he is in the house of Machir the son of Ammiel in Lodabar.
Ubi, inquit, est? Et Siba ad regem : Ecce, ait, in domo est Machir filii Ammiel, in Lodabar.

[5] Then king David sent, and brought him out of the house of Machir the son of Ammiel of Lodabar.
Misit ergo rex David, et tulit eum de domo Machir filii Ammiel, de Lodabar.

[6] And when Miphiboseth the son of Jonathan the son of Saul was come to David, he fell on his face and worshipped. And David said: Miphiboseth? And he answered: Behold thy servant.
Cum autem venisset Miphiboseth filius Jonathae filii Saul ad David, corruit in faciem suam, et adoravit. Dixitque David : Miphiboseth? Qui respondit : Adsum servus tuus.

[7] And David said to him: Fear not, for I will surely shew thee mercy for Jonathan thy father's sake, and I will restore the lands of Saul thy father, and thou shalt eat bread at my table always.
Et ait ei David : Ne timeas, quia faciens faciam in te misericordiam propter Jonathan patrem tuum, et restituam tibi omnes agros Saul patris tui, et tu comedes panem in mensa mea semper.

[8] He bowed down to him, and said: Who am I thy servant, that thou shouldst look upon such a dead dog as I am?
Qui adorans eum, dixit : Quis ego sum servus tuus, quoniam respexisti super canem mortum similem mei?

[9] Then the king called Siba the servant of Saul, and said to him: All that belonged to Saul, and all his house, I have given to thy master's son.
Vocavit itaque rex Sibam puerum Saul, et dixit ei : Omnia quaecumque fuerunt Saul, et universam domum ejus, dedi filio domini tui.

[10] Thou therefore and thy sons and thy servants shall till the land for him: and thou shalt bring in food for thy master's son, that he may be maintained: and Miphiboseth the son of thy master shall always eat bread at my table. And Siba had fifteen sons and twenty servants.
Operare igitur ei terram tu, et filii tui, et servi tui : et inferes filio domini tui cibos ut alatur : Miphiboseth autem filius domini tui comedet semper panem super mensam meam. Erant autem Sibae quindecim filii, et viginti servi.

[11] And Siba said to the king: As thou my lord the king hast commanded thy servant, so will thy servant do: and Miphiboseth shall eat at my table, as one of the sons of the king.
Dixitque Siba ad regem : Sicut jussisti domine mi rex servo tuo, sic faciet servus tuus : et Miphiboseth comedet super mensam meam, quasi unus de filiis regis.

[12] And Miphiboseth had a young son whose name was Micha: and all the kindred of the house of Siba served Miphiboseth.
Habebat autem Miphiboseth filium parvulum nomine Micha : omnis vero cognatio domus Sibae serviebat Miphiboseth.

[13] But Miphiboseth dwelt in Jerusalem: because he ate always of the king's table: and he was lame of both feet.
Porro Miphiboseth habitabat in Jerusalem : quia de mensa regis jugiter vescebatur : et erat claudus utroque pede.
