1 H5283 Now Naaman, H8269 captain H6635 of the host H4428 of the king H758 of Syria, H1419 was a great H376 man H6440 with H113 his master, H5375 and honorable, H3068 because by him Jehovah H5414 had given H8668 victory H758 unto Syria: H1368 he was also a mighty H376 man H2428 of valor, H6879 but he was a leper.
2 H758 And the Syrians H3318 had gone out H1416 in bands, H7617 and had brought away captive H776 out of the land H3478 of Israel H6996 a little H5291 maiden; H6440 and she waited on H5283 Naaman's H802 wife.
3 H559 And she said H1404 unto her mistress, H305 Would H113 that my lord H6440 were with H5030 the prophet H8111 that is in Samaria! H227 then H622 would he recover H6883 him of his leprosy.
4 H935 And one went in, H5046 and told H113 his lord, H559 saying, H1696 Thus and thus said H5291 the maiden H776 that is of the land H3478 of Israel.
5 H4428 And the king H758 of Syria H559 said, H935 Go H3212 now, H7971 and I will send H5612 a letter H4428 unto the king H3478 of Israel. H3212 And he departed, H3947 and took H3027 with him H6235 ten H3603 talents H3701 of silver, H8337 and six H505 thousand H2091 pieces of gold, H6235 and ten H2487 changes H899 of raiment.
6 H935 And he brought H5612 the letter H4428 to the king H3478 of Israel, H559 saying, H5612 And now when this letter H935 is come H7971 unto thee, behold, I have sent H5283 Naaman H5650 my servant H622 to thee, that thou mayest recover H6883 him of his leprosy.
7 H4428 And it came to pass, when the king H3478 of Israel H7121 had read H5612 the letter, H7167 that he rent H899 his clothes, H559 and said, H430 Am I God, H4191 to kill H2421 and to make alive, H2088 that this man H7971 doth send H622 unto me to recover H376 a man H6883 of his leprosy? H389 but H3045 consider, H7200 I pray you, and see H579 how he seeketh a quarrel against me.
8 H477 And it was so, when Elisha H376 the man H430 of God H8085 heard H4428 that the king H3478 of Israel H7167 had rent H899 his clothes, H7971 that he sent H4428 to the king, H559 saying, H7167 Wherefore hast thou rent H899 thy clothes? H935 let him come H3045 now to me, and he shall know H3426 that there is H5030 a prophet H3478 in Israel.
9 H5283 So Naaman H935 came H5483 with his horses H7393 and with his chariots, H5975 and stood H6607 at the door H1004 of the house H477 of Elisha.
10 H477 And Elisha H7971 sent H4397 a messenger H559 unto him, saying, H1980 Go H7364 and wash H3383 in the Jordan H7651 seven H6471 times, H1320 and thy flesh H7725 shall come again H2891 to thee, and thou shalt be clean.
11 H5283 But Naaman H7107 was wroth, H3212 and went away, H559 and said, H559 Behold, I thought, H3318 He will surely H3318 come out H5975 to me, and stand, H7121 and call H8034 on the name H3068 of Jehovah H430 his God, H5130 and wave H3027 his hand H4725 over the place, H622 and recover H6879 the leper.
12 H71 Are not Abanah H6554 and Pharpar, H5104 the rivers H1834 of Damascus, H2896 better H4325 than all the waters H3478 of Israel? H7364 may I not wash H2891 in them, and be clean? H6437 So he turned H3212 and went away H2534 in a rage.
13 H5650 And his servants H5066 came near, H1696 and spake H559 unto him, and said, H1 My father, H5030 if the prophet H1696 had bid H1419 thee do some great H1697 thing, H6213 wouldest thou not have done H637 it? how much rather then, H559 when he saith H7364 to thee, Wash, H2891 and be clean?
14 H3381 Then went he down, H2881 and dipped H7651 himself seven H6471 times H3383 in the Jordan, H1697 according to the saying H376 of the man H430 of God; H1320 and his flesh H7725 came again H1320 like unto the flesh H6996 of a little H5288 child, H2891 and he was clean.
15 H7725 And he returned H376 to the man H430 of God, H4264 he and all his company, H935 and came, H5975 and stood H6440 before H559 him; and he said, H3045 Behold now, I know H430 that there is no God H776 in all the earth, H3478 but in Israel: H3947 now therefore, I pray thee, take H1293 a present H5650 of thy servant.
16 H559 But he said, H3068 As Jehovah H2416 liveth, H6440 before H5975 whom I stand, H3947 I will receive H6484 none. And he urged H3947 him to take H3985 it; but he refused.
17 H5283 And Naaman H559 said, H5414 If not, yet, I pray thee, let there be given H5650 to thy servant H6776 two H6505 mules' H4853 burden H127 of earth; H5650 for thy servant H6213 will henceforth offer H5930 neither burnt-offering H2077 nor sacrifice H312 unto other H430 gods, H3068 but unto Jehovah.
18 H1697 In this thing H3068 Jehovah H5545 pardon H5650 thy servant: H113 when my master H935 goeth H1004 into the house H7417 of Rimmon H7812 to worship H8172 there, and he leaneth H3027 on my hand, H7812 and I bow H1004 myself in the house H7417 of Rimmon, H7812 when I bow H1004 myself in the house H7417 of Rimmon, H3068 Jehovah H5545 pardon H5650 thy servant H1697 in this thing.
19 H559 And he said H3212 unto him, Go H7965 in peace. H3212 So he departed H3530 from him a little H776 way.
20 H1522 But Gehazi H5288 the servant H477 of Elisha H376 the man H430 of God, H559 said, H113 Behold, my master H2820 hath spared H5283 this Naaman H761 the Syrian, H3947 in not receiving H3027 at his hands H935 that which he brought: H3068 as Jehovah H2416 liveth, H7323 I will run H310 after H3947 him, and take H3972 somewhat of him.
21 H1522 So Gehazi H7291 followed H310 after H5283 Naaman. H5283 And when Naaman H7200 saw H7323 one running H310 after H5307 him, he alighted H4818 from the chariot H7125 to meet H559 him, and said, H7965 Is all well?
22 H559 And he said, H7965 All is well. H113 My master H7971 hath sent H559 me, saying, H935 Behold, even now there are come H2022 to me from the hill-country H669 of Ephraim H8147 two H5288 young men H1121 of the sons H5030 of the prophets; H5414 give H3603 them, I pray thee, a talent H3701 of silver, H8147 and two H2487 changes H899 of raiment.
23 H5283 And Naaman H559 said, H2974 Be pleased H3947 to take H3603 two talents. H6555 And he urged H6696 him, and bound H8147 two H3603 talents H3701 of silver H8147 in two H2754 bags, H8147 with two H2487 changes H899 of raiment, H5414 and laid H8147 them upon two H5288 of his servants; H5375 and they bare H6440 them before him.
24 H935 And when he came H6076 to the hill, H3947 he took H3027 them from their hand, H6485 and bestowed H1004 them in the house; H582 and he let the men H7971 go, H3212 and they departed.
25 H935 But he went in, H5975 and stood H113 before his master. H477 And Elisha H559 said H370 unto him, Whence H1522 comest thou, Gehazi? H559 And he said, H5650 Thy servant H1980 went H575 no whither.
26 H559 And he said H1980 unto him, Went H3820 not my heart H376 with thee, when the man H2015 turned H4818 from his chariot H7125 to meet H6256 thee? Is it a time H3947 to receive H3701 money, H3947 and to receive H899 garments, H2132 and oliveyards H3754 and vineyards, H6629 and sheep H1241 and oxen, H5650 and men-servants H8198 and maid-servants?
