12 Mephibosheth had a young son named Mika, and all the members of Ziba's household were servants of Mephibosheth.

Matthew Henry's Commentary on 2 Samuel 9:12

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!
