Exterminating the idol, dispeller of shame
Jonathan was one of King David's closest friends. Jonathan's son Mephibosheth, the grandson of King Saul, was five years old when his father died during a battle with the Philistines. Mephibosheth's nurse, fearing the enemy would kill the young lad, fled with him but accidently dropped him. The fall caused Mephibosheth to be crippled in his feet for the rest of his life.
King David, sometime after Jonathan's death, sought out Mephibosheth. He gave him back all the land his grandfather Saul owned and offered him a special position in David's court.
