What right therefore have I yet to cry any more to the king? 29And the king said to him, Why speak you any more of your matters? I have said, You and Ziba divide the land. 30And Mephibosheth said to the king, Yes, let him take all, for as much as my lord the king is come again in peace to his own house.
