And Jonathan, Saul's son, had a son that was lame of his feet. He was five years old when the tidings came of Saul and Jonathan out of Jezreel, and his nurse took him up, and fled: and it came to pass, as she made haste to flee, that he fell, and became lame. And his name was Mephibosheth.
Šaulov sin Jonatan imao je sina hroma na obje noge. Njemu je bilo pet godina kad je iz Jizreela došao glas o Šaulovoj i Jonatanovoj pogibiji. Njegova ga dadilja uze i pobježe, ali u brzini bijega dijete pade i osta hromo. Ime mu bijaše Meribaal.
