Mephibosheth (me-phĭb'o-shĕth), end of shame or abasement. 1. The son of Jonathan and grandson of Saul, 2 Samuel 4:4; also called "Meribbaal"= contender against Baal. 1 Chronicles 8:34; 1 Chronicles 9:40. He was only about five years of age when his father was slain, and on the news of this catastrophe the nurse who had charge of him, apprehending that the whole house of Saul would be exterminated, fled away with him; but in her flight stumbled with the child, and lamed him for life. David made provision for Mephibosheth and his family. 2 Samuel 9:9-13; 2 Samuel 16:1-4; 2 Samuel 19:24-30. 2. A son of Saul by his concubine Rizpah. 2 Samuel 21:8.
