LO-DEBAR was a place in Gilead where Machir sheltered Mephibosheth, son of Jonathan until he was sent for by David.
2 Samuel 9:1 David asked, 'Is there anyone still left of the house of Saul to whom I can show kindness for Jonathan's sake?' 2 Now there was a servant of Saul's household named Ziba. They called him to appear before David, and the king said to him, 'Are you Ziba?' 'Your servant,' he replied. 3 The king asked, 'Is there no one still left of the house of Saul to whom I can show God's kindness?' Ziba answered the king, 'There is still a son of Jonathan; he is crippled in both feet.'
