2 Samuel 9:6-8 Living Bible (TLB)
5-6 So King David sent for Mephibosheth—Jonathan’s son and Saul’s grandson. Mephibosheth arrived in great fear and greeted the king in deep humility, bowing low before him.
7 But David said, “Don’t be afraid! I’ve asked you to come so that I can be kind to you because of my vow to your father Jonathan. I will restore to you all the land of your grandfather Saul, and you shall live here at the palace!”
8 Mephibosheth fell to the ground before the king. “Should the king show kindness to a dead dog like me?” he exclaimed.
