撒母耳記下 9

大衛恩待米非波設

1大衛問:「掃羅一家還有什麼人嗎?我要因為和約拿單的情義而恩待他。」 有人就去叫掃羅家一個名叫洗巴的僕人來見大衛,王問他:「你就是洗巴嗎?」他說:「僕人正是洗巴。」 王說:「掃羅家中還有什麼人?我要以上帝的慈愛來待他。」洗巴答道:「約拿單還有一個兒子,是雙腳殘廢的。」 王說:「他在哪裡?」洗巴答道:「他住在羅·底巴,在亞米利的兒子瑪吉家裡。」 於是,大衛王派人去羅·底巴把他從亞米利的兒子瑪吉家裡接來。 掃羅的孫子、約拿單的兒子米非波設來到大衛面前,向他俯伏叩拜。大衛說:「米非波設!」米非波設答道:「僕人在這裡。」 大衛說:「你不用害怕,我要因為和你父親約拿單的情義而恩待你。我要把你祖父掃羅所有的田地歸還給你,你要常與我同席吃飯。」 米非波設再次叩拜,說:「僕人算什麼?不過像一條死狗罷了,你竟這樣眷顧我!」

王又把掃羅的僕人洗巴召來,對他說:「我已把掃羅全家的產業都賜給了你主人的孫子米非波設。 10 你和你的兒子及僕人要為米非波設種田,把出產拿來供養他。他還要常常與我同席吃飯。」洗巴有十五個兒子,二十個僕人。 11 洗巴對王說:「僕人必遵行我主我王的一切吩咐。」於是,米非波設像王子一樣常與大衛同席吃飯。 12 米非波設有一個小兒子名叫米迦。洗巴家中的人都做了米非波設的僕人。 13 從此,雙腳殘廢的米非波設就住在耶路撒冷,常常與王同席吃飯。

2 Samuel 9

David’s Kindness to Mephibosheth

1And David said, “Is there still anyone left of the house (family) of Saul to whom I may show kindness for Jonathan’s sake?” There was a servant of the house of Saul whose name was Ziba, so they called him to David. And the king said to him, “Are you Ziba?” He said, “I am your servant.” And the king said, “Is there no longer anyone left of the house (family) of Saul to whom I may show the goodness and graciousness of God?” Ziba replied to the king, “There is still a son of Jonathan, [one] whose feet are crippled.” So the king said to him, “Where is he?” And Ziba replied to the king, “He is in the house of Machir the son of Ammiel, in Lo-debar.” Then King David sent word and had him brought from the house of Machir the son of Ammiel, from Lo-debar. Mephibosheth the son of Jonathan, the son of Saul, came to David and fell face down and lay himself down [in respect]. David said, “Mephibosheth.” And he answered, “Here is your servant!” David said to him, “Do not be afraid, for I will certainly show you kindness for the sake of your father Jonathan, and will restore to you all the land of your grandfather Saul; and you shall always eat at my table.” Again Mephibosheth lay himself face down and said, “What is your servant, that you would be concerned for a dead dog like me?”

Then the king summoned Ziba, Saul’s servant, and said to him, “I have given your master’s grandson everything that belonged to Saul and to all his house (family). 10 You and your sons and your servants shall cultivate the land for him, and you shall bring in the produce, so that your master’s grandson may have food to eat; but Mephibosheth, your master’s grandson, shall always eat at my table.” Now Ziba had fifteen sons and twenty servants. 11 Then Ziba said to the king, “Your servant will do according to everything that my lord the king commands.” So Mephibosheth ate at David’s table as one of the king’s sons. 12 Mephibosheth had a young son whose name was Mica. And all who lived in Ziba’s house were servants to Mephibosheth. 13 So Mephibosheth lived in Jerusalem, for he always ate at the king’s table. And he was lame in both feet.
