2 Kings 5
NMV
5
1Now Na’aman [Pleasantness], captain of the host of the king of Aram (Syria) [exalted], was a great man with his master, and honourable, because by him the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) had given deliverance unto Aram (Syria) [exalted]: he was also a mighty man in valour, [but he was] a leper.
2And the Aram [Syrians] had gone out by companies, and had brought away captive out of the land of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] a little maid; and she waited on Na’aman [Pleasantness]’s wife.
3And she said unto her mistress, Would God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] my lord [were] with the prophet that [is] in Shomron [watch mountain]! for he would heal him of his leprosy.
4And [one] went in, and told his lord, saying, Thus and thus said the maid that [is] of the land of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God].
5And the king of Aram (Syria) [exalted] said, Go ahead, go, and I will send a letter unto the king of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God]. And he departed, and took with him ten talents of silver, and six thousand [pieces] of gold, and ten changes of clothing.
6And he brought the letter to the king of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God], saying, Now when this letter is come unto youi, behold, I have [along with it] sent Na’aman [Pleasantness] my servant to youi, that youi may heal him of his leprosy.
7And it came to pass, when the king of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] had read the letter, that he rent his clothes, and said, [Am] I God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered], to kill and to make alive, that this man does send unto me to heal a man of his leprosy? Therefore consider, I pray you, and see how he seeks a quarrel against me.
8And it was [so], when Eli-sha [my God is salvation] the man of God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] had heard that the king of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] had rent his clothes, that he sent to the king, saying, For what reason have youi rent youri clothes? let him come now to me, and he shall know that there is a prophet in Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God].
9So Na’aman [Pleasantness] came with his horses and with his chariot, and stood at the door of the house of Eli-sha [my God is salvation].
10And Eli-sha [my God is salvation] sent a messenger unto him, saying, Go and wash in Yarden [Descender] seven times, and youri flesh shall come again to youi, and youi shall be clean.
11But Na’aman [Pleasantness] was exceedingly angry, and went away, and said, Behold, I thought, He will surely come out to me, and stand, and call on the name of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) his God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered], and wave his hand over the place, and heal the leper.
12 [Are] not Amanah (Avnah) [faith, support] and Parpar [swift], rivers of Dammesek (Damascus) [silent is the sackcloth weaver], better than all the waters of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God]? may I not wash in them, and be clean? So he turned and went away in a rage.
13And his servants came near, and spoke unto him, and said, My father, [if] the prophet had bid youi [do some] difficult thing, would youi not have done [it]? how much rather then, when he says to youi, Wash, and be clean?
14Then went he down, and dipped himself seven times in Yarden [Descender], according to the saying of the man of God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered]: and his flesh came again like unto the flesh of a little child, and he was clean.
15And he returned to the man of God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered], he and all his company, and came, and stood before him: and he said, Behold, now I know that [there is] no God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] in all the earth, but in Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God]: now therefore, I pray youi, take a blessing of youri servant.
16But he said, [As] the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) lives, before whom I stand, I will receive none. And he urged him to take [it]; but he refused.
17And Na’aman [Pleasantness] said, Shall there not then, I pray youi, be given to youri servant two mules’ burden of earth? for youri servant will from this time forward offer neither burnt offering nor sacrifice unto other gods, but unto the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate).
18In this thing the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) pardon youri servant, [that] when my master goes into the house of Rimmon [Pomegranate] to worship there, and he leans on my hand, and I bow myself in the house of Rimmon [Pomegranate]: when I bow down myself in the house of Rimmon [Pomegranate], the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) pardon youri servant in this thing.
19And he said unto him, Go in peace. So he departed from him after a short distance.
20But Geichazi [valley of vision], the servant of Eli-sha [my God is salvation] the man of God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered], said, Behold, my master has spared Na’aman [Pleasantness] this Arami [exalted], in not receiving at his hands that which he brought: but, [as] the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) lives, I will run after him, and take something of him.
21So Geichazi [valley of vision] followed after Na’aman [Pleasantness]. And when Na’aman [Pleasantness] saw [him] running after him, he came down from the chariot to meet him, and said, [Is] all well?
22And he said, All [is] well. My master has sent me, saying, Behold, even now there be come to me from mount Efrayim [Doubly Fruitful] two young men of the sons of the prophets: give them, I pray youi, a talent (weight of money; weight; gift) of silver, and two changes of garments.
23And Na’aman [Pleasantness] said, Be content, take two talents. And he urged him, and bound two talents of silver in two bags, with two changes of garments, and laid [them] upon two of his servants; and they carried [them] before him.
24And when he came to the tower, he took [them] from their hand, and placed [them] in the house: and he let the men go, and they departed.
25But he went in, and stood before his master. And Eli-sha [my God is salvation] said unto him, From where do youi come, Geichazi [valley of vision]? And he said, Your1s servant went nowhere.
26And he said unto him, Went not my heart [with youi], when the man turned again from his chariot to meet youi? [Is it] a time to receive money, and to receive garments, and olive yards, and vineyards, and sheep, and oxen, and menservants, and maidservants?
27The leprosy therefore of Na’aman [Pleasantness] shall cling unto youi, and unto youri descendants forever. And he went out from his presence a leper [as white] as snow.
