11 Then Ziba said to the king, "Your servant will do whatever my lord the king commands his servant to do." So Mephibosheth ate at David's[1] table like one of the king's sons.

Matthew Henry's Commentary on 2 Samuel 9:11

Commentary on 2 Samuel 9:9-13

(Read 2 Samuel 9:9-13)

As David was a type of Christ, his Lord and Son, his Root and Offspring, let his kindness to Mephibosheth remind us of the kindness and love of God our Saviour to fallen man, to whom he was under no obligation, as David was to Jonathan. The Son of God seeks this lost and ruined race, who sought not after him. He comes to seek and to save them!
