It''s always a bad thing when others gossip about you and tell lies. But when the king is the audience and he believes those lies, you can lose everything - as Mephibosheth did here.

2 Samuel 16:3-4New Living Translation (NLT)

“And where is Mephibosheth, Saul’s grandson?” the king asked him.

“He stayed in Jerusalem,” Ziba replied. “He said, ‘Today I will get back the kingdom of my grandfather Saul.’”

“In that case,” the king told Ziba, “I give you everything Mephibosheth owns.”

“I bow before you,” Ziba replied. “May I always be pleasing to you, my lord the king.”
