1). Comparative passage

a). 1 Chronicles 13:7, 8 And they carried the ark of God in a new cart out of the house of Abinadab: and Uzza and Ahio drave the cart.
13:8 And David and all Israel played before God with all their might, and with singing, and with harps, and with psalteries, and with timbrels, and with cymbals, and with trumpets.

2). This is an amazing scene, here we have the King of Israel with many of the leaders of Israel worshipping God with all their might while they bring the Ark of the Covenant to the city of David and to the place where the Ark would rest. Yet they were in disobedience and it wasn’t until after the death of Uzza that it was realized. As we shall see, the Ark remained in Obededom’s house for three months. During that time David came to the realization that the Ark is to be carried by the Levites and not transported by a cart. This is such a lesson for us, that we must know what the Bible says and realize that ignorance is not an excuse it is a detriment.

a). Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

3). David later recognized this error in 1 Chronicles 15 as being his and the Levite’s fault.

a). 1 Chronicles 15:11-13 And David called for Zadok and Abiathar the priests, and for the Levites, for Uriel, Asaiah, and Joel, Shemaiah, and Eliel, and Amminadab,
15:12 And said unto them, Ye are the chief of the fathers of the Levites: sanctify yourselves, both ye and your brethren, that ye may bring up the ark of the LORD God of Israel unto the place that I have prepared for it.
15:13 For because ye did it not at the first, the LORD our God made a breach upon us, for that we sought him not after the due order.

g. his feet [7272 *  marglah] [Strong: denominative from 7272; (plural for collective) a footpiece, i.e. (adverbially) at the foot, or (direct.) the foot itself:--feet.]

1). Unger’s Bible Dictionary: Mephibosheth, son of Jonathan, and grandson of Saul. When his father and grandfather were slain at Gilboa, Mephibosheth was an infant of five years of age, living under the care of his nurse, probablt at Gibeah. When the tidings of the disaster came to the royal household the nurse fled, carrying the child upon her shoulder. In her haste she let him fall, and Mephibosheth was crippled for life in both feet (2 Samuel 4:4), about 1000 B.C. After the accident Mephibosheth seems to have found a refuge in the house of Machir, a Gadite sheik at Lo-debar, near Mahanaim, by whom he was brought up (Josepheus, Antiquties of the Jews, Book vii, 5,5). He married and was living there, when David, having conqured his enemies, had leisure to make endeavors to fulfill his oath to Jonathan by the stone Ezel, that he would not “cut off his kindness from his house forever” (1 Samuel 20:15). From Ziba he learned of the existence and whereoabouts of Mephibosheth, and brought him and his son Micah (compare 1 Chronicles 9:40) to Jerusalem. The interview was characterized by fear and reverence on the part of Jonathan’s son, and kindness and liberality on that of David. All the property of his grandfather was conveyed to Mephibosheth, and Zibawas commanded to cultivate the land in his interest. Mephibosheth took up residencein Jerusalem, and was a daily guest at the royal table 2 Samuel 9, about 984 B.C. The next mention of Mephibosheth respects his behavior upon the revolt of Absalom. Of this there are two accounts, his own (2 Samuel 19:24-30), and that of Ziba (2 Samuel 16:1-4), and they naturally differ. Ziba, because of his loyalty and kindness, was rewarded with the possessions of his master. Mephibosheth met David a few days after and told his story: that he had desired to fly with his benefactor, but was deceived by Ziba, so that he was obliged to remain behind. He had, however, done all he could to evidence his sympathy with David, having gone into the deepest mourning for his afflicted friend. From the day the king left he had allowed his beard to grow ragged, his feet to be unwashed, and his linen unchanged. David doubtless believed his story, and revoked his judgment given to Ziba so much as to have the land divided between the two…967 B.C. We hear no more of  Mephibosheth, except that the king did not suffer him to be included in the vengeance which the Gibeonites were allowed to execute upon the house of Saul (2 Samuel 21:7).

2 Samuel 9:10

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.

a. NLT: You and your sons and servants are to farm the land for him to produce food for your master’s household.[fn] But Mephibosheth, your master’s grandson, will eat here at my table.” (Ziba had fifteen sons and twenty servants.)

Now Ziba had fifteen sons and twenty servants.

e. Septuagint: And thou, and thy sons, and thy servants, shall till the land for him; and thou shalt bring in bread to the son of thy lord, and he shall eat bread: and Memphibosthe the son of thy lord shall eat bread continually at my table. Now Siba had fifteen sons and twenty servants.

f. Stone Edition Torah/Prophets/Writings: You shall work the land for him—you and your sons and your servants—and bring in [its produce] to be bread for [Mica] the son of your master [Miphibosheth] to eat; but Miphibosheth son of your master [Jonathan] shall always eat at my table.” (Ziba hasd fifteen sons and twenty servants.)

1). Adam Clarke Commentary: Unless Ziba had been servant of Jonathan, this seems to refer to Micha, son of Mephibosheth, and so some understand it; but it is more likely that Mephibosheth is meant, who is called son of Saul instead of grandson. Yet it is evident enough that the produce of the land went to the support of Micha, (see 2 Samuel 9:10), for the father was provided for at the table of David; but all the patrimony belonged to Mephibosheth.
