Naaman Is Healed
1 Now aNaaman°, captain° of the army° of the king° of Aram°, was a great° man° Iwith his master°, and highly respected°°, because° by him the LORD° had given° victory° to Aram°. The man° was also a valiant° warrior°, [but he was] a leper°. 2 Now the Arameans° had gone° out ain bands° and had taken° captive° a little° girl° from the land° of Israel°; and she Iwaited° on Naaman’s° wife°. 3 She said° to her mistress°, “I wish° that my master° were Iwith the prophet° who° is in Samaria°! Then° he would cure° him of his leprosy°.” 4 INaaman went° in and told° his master°, saying°, “Thus° and thus° spoke° the girl° who° is from the land° of Israel°.” 5 Then the king° of Aram° said°, “Go° Inow°, and I will send° a letter° to the king° of Israel°.” He departed° and atook° with him ten° talents° of silver° and six° thousand° [shekels] of gold° and ten° bchanges° of clothes°.

6 ¶ He brought° the letter° to the king° of Israel°, saying°, “And now° as this° letter° comes° to you, behold°, I have sent° Naaman° my servant° to you, that you may cure° him of his leprosy°.” 7 When the king° of Israel° read° the letter°, ahe tore° his clothes° and said°, “bAm I God°, to kill° and to make° alive°, that this° man is sending° [word] to me to cure° a man° of his leprosy°? But cconsider° now°, and see° how° he is seeking° Ia quarrel° against me.”
8 ¶ It happened° when Elisha° athe man° of God° heard° that the king° of Israel° had torn° his clothes°, that he sent° [word] to the king°, saying°, “Why° have you torn° your clothes°? Now° let him come° to me, and he shall know° that there° is a prophet° in Israel°.” 9 So Naaman° came° with his horses° and his chariots° and stood° at the doorway° of the house° of Elisha°. 10 Elisha° sent° a messenger° to him, saying°, “aGo° and wash° in the Jordan° seven° times°, and your flesh° will be restored° to you and [you will] be clean°.” 11 But Naaman° was furious° and went° away and said°, “Behold°, I Ithought°, ‘He will surely° come° out to me and stand° and call° on the name° of the LORD° his God°, and wave° his hand° over° the place° and cure° the leper°.’ 12 Are not IAbanah° and Pharpar°, the rivers° of Damascus°, better° than° all° the waters° of Israel°? Could I not wash° in them and be clean°?” So he turned° and awent° away in a rage°. 13 aThen his servants° came° near° and spoke° to him and said°, “bMy father°, had the prophet° told° you [to do some] great° thing°, would you not have done° [it]? How° much°° more°° [then], when° he says° to you, ‘Wash°, and be clean°’?” 14 So he went° down° and dipped° [himself] seven° times° in the Jordan°, according to the word° of the man° of God°; and ahis flesh° was restored° like the flesh° of a little° child° and bhe was clean°.

Naaman, by the report of a captive maid, is sent to Samaria to be cured of his leprosy.
1 ¶ Now Naaman,º captainº of the hostº of the kingº of Syria,º was² a greatº manº withº his master,º and honourable,ºª² because² by him the LORDº had givenºª deliveranceº unto Syria:º he was² also a mightyº manº in valour,º [but he was] a leper.ºª 2 And the Syriansº had gone outºª by companies,º and had brought away captiveºª out of the landº² of Israelº a littleº maid;º and she waited²² on¹ Naaman'sº wife.º 3 And she saidºª unto² her mistress,º Would¹ God² my lordº [were] withº the prophetº that² [is] in Samaria!º forº he would recoverºª him of his leprosy.º² 4 And [one] went in,ºª and toldºª his lord,º saying,ºª Thus² and thus² saidºª the maidº that² [is] of the landº² of Israel.º 5 And the kingº of Syriaº said,ºª Go to,¹ª² go,ºª and I will sendºª a letterº unto² the kingº of Israel.º And he departed,¹ª² and tookºª with² him¹ tenº talentsº of silver,º and sixº thousandº [pieces] of gold,º and tenº changesº of raiment.º 6 And he broughtºª the letterº to² the kingº of Israel,º saying,ºª Now² when this² letterº is comeºª unto² thee, behold,² I have [therewith] sentºª² Naamanº my servantº to² thee, that thou mayest recoverºª him of his leprosy.º² 7 And it came to pass,² when the kingº of Israelº had readºª² the letter,º that he rentºª his clothes,º and said,ºª [Am] I² God,º to killºª and to make alive,ºª that² this² man¹ doth sendºª unto² me to recoverºª a manº of his leprosy?º² whereforeº² consider,ºª I pray you,² and seeºª how² he² seeketh a quarrelºª against me.

Elisha, sending him to Jordan, cureth him.
8 ¶ And it was² [so], when Elishaº the manº of Godº had heardºª that² the kingº of Israelº had rentºª² his clothes,º that he sentºª to² the king,º saying,ºª Wherefore² hast thou rentºª thy clothes?º let him comeºª now² to² me, and he shall knowºª that² there isº a prophetº in Israel.º 9 So Naamanº cameºª with his horsesº and with his chariot,º and stoodºª at the doorº of the houseº of Elisha.º 10 And Elishaº sentºª a messengerº unto² him, saying,ºª Goºª and washºª in Jordanº sevenº times,º and thy fleshº shall come againºª to thee, and thou shalt be clean.ºª 11 But Naamanº was wroth,ºª and went away,¹ª² and said,ºª Behold,² I thought,ºª He will surely¹ª come outºª to² me, and stand,ºª and callºª on the nameº of the LORDº his God,º and strikeºª his handº over² the place,º and recoverºª the leper.ºª 12 [Are] not² Abanaºª¹ and Pharpar,º riversº of Damascus,º betterº than all²² the watersº of Israel?º may I not² washºª in them, and be clean?ºª So he turnedºª and went away¹ª² in a rage.º 13 And his servantsº came near,ºª and spakeºª unto² him, and said,ºª My father,º [if] the prophetº had bidºª² thee [do some] greatº thing,º wouldest thou not² have doneºª [it]? how much rather² then,¹ when² he saithºª to² thee, Wash,ºª and be clean?ºª 14 Then went he down,ºª and dippedºª himself sevenº timesº in Jordan,º according to the sayingº of the manº of God:º and his fleshº came againºª like unto the fleshº of a littleº child,º and he was clean.ºª

Gehazi, abusing his master's name unto Naaman, is smitten with leprosy.
20 ¶ But Gehazi,º the servantº of Elishaº the manº of God,º said,ºª Behold,² my masterº hath sparedºª² Naamanº this² Syrian,º in not receivingºª² at his handsº²² that which² he brought:ºª but,²² [as] the LORDº liveth,º I will runºª afterº him, and takeºª somewhatº of²² him. 21 So Gehaziº followedºª afterº Naaman.º And when Naamanº sawºª [him] runningºª afterº him, he lighted downºª from²² the chariotº to meet¹ª² him, and said,ºª [Is] all well?º 22 And he said,ºª All [is] well.º My masterº hath sentºª me, saying,ºª Behold,² even now²² there be comeºª to² me from mountº² Ephraimº twoº young menº of the sonsº² of the prophets:º giveºª them, I pray thee,² a talentº of silver,º and twoº changesº of garments.º 23 And Naamanº said,ºª Be content,ºª takeºª two talents.º And he urgedºª him, and boundºª two¹ talentsº of silverº in twoº bags,º with twoº changesº of garments,º and laidºª [them] upon² twoº of his servants;º and they bareºª [them] beforeº him. 24 And when he cameºª to² the tower,º he tookºª [them] from their hand,º² and bestowedºª [them] in the house:º and he let² the men¹² go,ºª and they departed.¹ª² 25 But he² went in,ºª and stoodºª before² his master.º And Elishaº saidºª unto² him, Whenceº² [comest thou], Gehazi?º And he said,ºª Thy servantº wentºª no² whither.º 26 And he saidºª unto² him, Wentºª not² mine heartº [with thee], when² the manº turned¹ª again² from²² his chariotº to meet¹ª² thee?
