2 Samuel 9:6-8 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

When Mephibosheth (son of Jonathan and grandson of Saul) came to David, he quickly bowed down with his face touching the ground.

“Mephibosheth!” David said to him.

“Yes, sir,” he answered.

“Don’t be afraid,” David told him, “I will certainly show you kindness for your father Jonathan’s sake. I will give back to you all the land of your grandfather Saul, and you will always eat at my table.”

Mephibosheth bowed down again and answered, “Who am I that you would look at a dead dog like me?”
