2 Samuel Chapter 9
7 And David said unto him, Fear not: for I will surely shew thee kindness for Jonathan thy father's sake, and will restore thee all the land of Saul thy father; and thou shalt eat bread at my table continually.
10 Thou therefore, and thy sons, and thy servants, shall till the land for him, and thou shalt bring in the fruits, that thy master's son may have food to eat: but Mephibosheth thy master's son shall eat bread alway at my table. Now Ziba had fifteen sons and twenty servants.
11 Then said Ziba unto the king, According to all that my lord the king hath commanded his servant, so shall thy servant do. As for Mephibosheth, said the king, he shall eat at my table, as one of the king's sons.

verse 1 tells us David done this for Jonathan's sake,when the normal would have been for a king to destroy all the heirs of the previous king David shows eternal mercy on Mephibosheth and gives him a place at the King's table. God the father has mercy on "dead dogs" today, v 8 for Jesus sake.We too can have God's mercy and forgiveness as once being the enemies of God to the children of God!!!

Verse 9: We see that King David took action to make sure that he continued to show loyal love to Jonathan even after Jonathan had died.
