2 Kings 5


1  Now Naaman,5283 captain8269 of the host6635 of the king4428 of Syria,758 was1961 a great1419 man376 with6440 his master,113 and honorable,5375 6440 because3588 by him the LORD3068 had given5414 deliverance8668 unto Syria:758 he was1961 also a mighty1368 man376 in valor,2428 but he was a leper.6879

2  And the Syrians758 had gone out3318 by companies,1416 and had brought away captive7617 out of the land4480 776 of Israel3478 a little6996 maid;5291 and she waited1961 6440 on Naaman's5283 wife.802

3  And she said559 unto413 her mistress,1404 Would God305 my lord113 were with6440 the prophet5030 that834 is in Samaria!8111 for227 he would recover622 him of his leprosy.4480 6883

4  And one went in,935 and told5046 his lord,113 saying,559 Thus2063 and thus2063 said1696 the maid5291 that834 is of the land4480 776 of Israel.3478

5  And the king4428 of Syria758 said,559 Go to,1980 go,935 and I will send7971 a letter5612 unto413 the king4428 of Israel.3478 And he departed,1980 and took3947 with3027 him ten6235 talents3603 of silver,3701 and six8337 thousand505 pieces of gold,2091 and ten6235 changes2487 of raiment.899

6  And he brought935 the letter5612 to413 the king4428 of Israel,3478 saying,559 Now6258 when this2088 letter5612 is come935 unto413 thee, behold,2009 I have therewith sent7971 853 Naaman5283 my servant5650 to413 thee, that thou mayest recover622 him of his leprosy.4480 6883

7  And it came to pass,1961 when the king4428 of Israel3478 had read7121 853 the letter,5612 that he rent7167 his clothes,899 and said,559 Am I589 God,430 to kill4191 and to make alive,2421 that3588 this2088 man doth send7971 unto413 me to recover622 a man376 of his leprosy?4480 6883 wherefore3588 389 consider,3045 I pray you,4994 and see7200 how3588 he1931 seeketh a quarrel579 against me.

8  And it was1961 so, when Elisha477 the man376 of God430 had heard8085 that3588 the king4428 of Israel3478 had rent7167 853 his clothes,899 that he sent7971 to413 the king,4428 saying,559 Wherefore4100 hast thou rent7167 thy clothes?899 let him come935 now4994 to413 me, and he shall know3045 that3588 there is3426 a prophet5030 in Israel.3478

9  So Naaman5283 came935 with his horses5483 and with his chariot,7393 and stood5975 at the door6607 of the house1004 of Elisha.477

10  And Elisha477 sent7971 a messenger4397 unto413 him, saying,559 Go1980 and wash7364 in Jordan3383 seven7651 times,6471 and thy flesh1320 shall come again7725 to thee, and thou shalt be clean.2891

11  But Naaman5283 was wroth,7107 and went away,1980 and said,559 Behold,2009 I thought,559 He will surely come out3318 3318 to413 me, and stand,5975 and call7121 on the name8034 of the LORD3068 his God,430 and strike5130 his hand3027 over413 the place,4725 and recover622 the leper.6879

12  Are not3808 Abana71 and Pharpar,6554 rivers5104 of Damascus,1834 better2896 than all4480 3605 the waters4325 of Israel?3478 may I not3808 wash7364 in them, and be clean?2891 So he turned6437 and went away1980 in a rage.2534

13  And his servants5650 came near,5066 and spoke1696 unto413 him, and said,559 My father,1 if the prophet5030 had bid1696 413 thee do some great1419 thing,1697 wouldest thou not3808 have done6213 it? how much rather637 then, when3588 he saith559 to413 thee, Wash,7364 and be clean?2891

14  Then went he down,3381 and dipped2881 himself seven7651 times6471 in Jordan,3383 according to the saying1697 of the man376 of God:430 and his flesh1320 came again7725 like unto the flesh1320 of a little6996 child,5288 and he was clean.2891

15  And he returned7725 to413 the man376 of God,430 he1931 and all3605 his company,4264 and came,935 and stood5975 before6440 him: and he said,559 Behold,2009 now4994 I know3045 that3588 there is no369 God430 in all3605 the earth,776 but3588 518 in Israel:3478 now6258 therefore, I pray thee,4994 take3947 a blessing1293 of4480 854 thy servant.5650

16  But he said,559 As the LORD3068 liveth,2416 before6440 whom834 I stand,5975 I will receive3947 none. And he urged6484 him to take3947 it; but he refused.3985

17  And Naaman5283 said,559 Shall there not3808 then, I pray thee,4994 be given5414 to thy servant5650 two mules'6776 6505 burden4853 of earth?127 for3588 thy servant5650 will henceforth5750 offer6213 neither3808 burnt offering5930 nor sacrifice2077 unto other312 gods,430 but3588 518 unto the LORD.3068

18  In this2088 thing1697 the LORD3068 pardon5545 thy servant,5650 that when my master113 goeth935 into the house1004 of Rimmon7417 to worship7812 there,8033 and he1931 leaneth8172 on5921 my hand,3027 and I bow myself7812 in the house1004 of Rimmon:7417 when I bow down myself7812 in the house1004 of Rimmon,7417 the LORD3068 pardon5545 thy servant5650 in this2088 thing.1697

19  And he said559 unto him, Go1980 in peace.7965 So he departed1980 from4480 854 him a little way.3530 776

20  But Gehazi,1522 the servant5288 of Elisha477 the man376 of God,430 said,559 Behold,2009 my master113 hath spared2820 853 Naaman5283 this2088 Syrian,761 in not receiving4480 3947 at his hands4480 3027 853 that which834 he brought:935 but,3588 518 as the LORD3068 liveth,2416 I will run7323 after310 him, and take3947 somewhat3972 of4480 854 him.

21  So Gehazi1522 followed7291 after310 Naaman.5283 And when Naaman5283 saw7200 him running7323 after310 him, he lighted down5307 from4480 5921 the chariot4818 to meet7122 him, and said,559 Is all well?7965

22  And he said,559 All is well.7965 My master113 hath sent7971 me, saying,559 Behold,2009 even now6258 2088 there be come935 to413 me from mount4480 2022 Ephraim669 two8147 young men5288 of the sons4480 1121 of the prophets:5030 give5414 them, I pray thee,4994 a talent3603 of silver,3701 and two8147 changes2487 of garments.899

23  And Naaman5283 said,559 Be content,2974 take3947 two talents.3603 And he urged6555 him, and bound6696 two talents3603 of silver3701 in two8147 bags,2754 with two8147 changes2487 of garments,899 and laid5414 them upon413 two8147 of his servants;5288 and they bore5375 them before6440 him.

24  And when he came935 to413 the tower,6076 he took3947 them from their hand,4480 3027 and bestowed6485 them in the house:1004 and he let 853 the men376 go,7971 and they departed.1980

25  But he1931 went in,935 and stood5975 before413 his master.113 And Elisha477 said559 unto413 him, Whence4480 370 comest thou, Gehazi?1522 And he said,559 Thy servant5650 went1980 no3808 whither.575 575

26  And he said559 unto413 him, Went1980 not3808 mine heart3820 with thee, when834 the man376 turned again2015 from4480 5921 his chariot4818 to meet7122 thee? Is it a time6256 to receive3947 853 money,3701 and to receive3947 garments,899 and oliveyards,2132 and vineyards,3754 and sheep,6629 and oxen,1241 and menservants,5650 and maidservants?8198

27  The leprosy6883 therefore of Naaman5283 shall cleave1692 unto thee, and unto thy seed2233 forever.5769 And he went out3318 from his presence4480 6440 a leper6879 as white as snow.7950


1 καὶ Ναιμαν ὁ ἄρχων τῆς δυνάμεως Συρίας ἦν ἀνὴρ μέγας ἐνώπιον τοῦ κυρίου αὐτοῦ καὶ τεθαυμασμένος προσώπῳ ὅτι ἐν αὐτῷ ἔδωκεν κύριος σωτηρίαν Συρίᾳ καὶ ὁ ἀνὴρ ἦν δυνατὸς ἰσχύι λελεπρωμένος

2 καὶ Συρία ἐξῆλθον μονόζωνοι καὶ ᾐχμαλώτευσαν ἐκ γῆς Ισραηλ νεάνιδα μικράν καὶ ἦν ἐνώπιον τῆς γυναικὸς Ναιμαν

3 ἡ δὲ εἶπεν τῇ κυρίᾳ αὐτῆς ὄφελον ὁ κύριός μου ἐνώπιον τοῦ προφήτου τοῦ θεοῦ τοῦ ἐν Σαμαρείᾳ τότε ἀποσυνάξει αὐτὸν ἀπὸ τῆς λέπρας αὐτοῦ

4 καὶ εἰσῆλθεν καὶ ἀπήγγειλεν τῷ κυρίῳ ἑαυτῆς καὶ εἶπεν οὕτως καὶ οὕτως ἐλάλησεν ἡ νεᾶνις ἡ ἐκ γῆς Ισραηλ

5 καὶ εἶπεν βασιλεὺς Συρίας πρὸς Ναιμαν δεῦρο εἴσελθε καὶ ἐξαποστελῶ βιβλίον πρὸς βασιλέα Ισραηλ καὶ ἐπορεύθη καὶ ἔλαβεν ἐν τῇ χειρὶ αὐτοῦ δέκα τάλαντα ἀργυρίου καὶ ἑξακισχιλίους χρυσοῦς καὶ δέκα ἀλλασσομένας στολάς

6 καὶ ἤνεγκεν τὸ βιβλίον πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα Ισραηλ λέγων καὶ νῦν ὡς ἂν ἔλθῃ τὸ βιβλίον τοῦτο πρὸς σέ ἰδοὺ ἀπέστειλα πρὸς σὲ Ναιμαν τὸν δοῦλόν μου καὶ ἀποσυνάξεις αὐτὸν ἀπὸ τῆς λέπρας αὐτοῦ

7 καὶ ἐγένετο ὡς ἀνέγνω βασιλεὺς Ισραηλ τὸ βιβλίον διέρρηξεν τὰ ἱμάτια αὐτοῦ καὶ εἶπεν μὴ θεὸς ἐγὼ τοῦ θανατῶσαι καὶ ζωοποιῆσαι ὅτι οὗτος ἀποστέλλει πρός με ἀποσυνάξαι ἄνδρα ἀπὸ τῆς λέπρας αὐτοῦ ὅτι πλὴν γνῶτε δὴ καὶ ἴδετε ὅτι προφασίζεται οὗτός με

8 καὶ ἐγένετο ὡς ἤκουσεν Ελισαιε ὅτι διέρρηξεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Ισραηλ τὰ ἱμάτια ἑαυτοῦ καὶ ἀπέστειλεν πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα Ισραηλ λέγων ἵνα τί διέρρηξας τὰ ἱμάτιά σου ἐλθέτω δὴ πρός με Ναιμαν καὶ γνώτω ὅτι ἔστιν προφήτης ἐν Ισραηλ

9 καὶ ἦλθεν Ναιμαν ἐν ἵππῳ καὶ ἅρματι καὶ ἔστη ἐπὶ θύρας οἴκου Ελισαιε

10 καὶ ἀπέστειλεν Ελισαιε ἄγγελον πρὸς αὐτὸν λέγων πορευθεὶς λοῦσαι ἑπτάκις ἐν τῷ Ιορδάνῃ καὶ ἐπιστρέψει ἡ σάρξ σού σοι καὶ καθαρισθήσῃ

11 καὶ ἐθυμώθη Ναιμαν καὶ ἀπῆλθεν καὶ εἶπεν ἰδοὺ δὴ ἔλεγον ὅτι ἐξελεύσεται πρός με καὶ στήσεται καὶ ἐπικαλέσεται ἐν ὀνόματι θεοῦ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπιθήσει τὴν χεῖρα αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τὸν τόπον καὶ ἀποσυνάξει τὸ λεπρόν

12 οὐχὶ ἀγαθὸς Αβανα καὶ Φαρφαρ ποταμοὶ Δαμασκοῦ ὑπὲρ Ιορδάνην καὶ πάντα τὰ ὕδατα Ισραηλ οὐχὶ πορευθεὶς λούσομαι ἐν αὐτοῖς καὶ καθαρισθήσομαι καὶ ἐξέκλινεν καὶ ἀπῆλθεν ἐν θυμῷ

13 καὶ ἤγγισαν οἱ παῖδες αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐλάλησαν πρὸς αὐτόν μέγαν λόγον ἐλάλησεν ὁ προφήτης πρὸς σέ οὐχὶ ποιήσεις καὶ ὅτι εἶπεν πρὸς σέ λοῦσαι καὶ καθαρίσθητι

14 καὶ κατέβη Ναιμαν καὶ ἐβαπτίσατο ἐν τῷ Ιορδάνῃ ἑπτάκι κατὰ τὸ ῥῆμα Ελισαιε καὶ ἐπέστρεψεν ἡ σὰρξ αὐτοῦ ὡς σὰρξ παιδαρίου μικροῦ καὶ ἐκαθαρίσθη

15 καὶ ἐπέστρεψεν πρὸς Ελισαιε αὐτὸς καὶ πᾶσα ἡ παρεμβολὴ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἦλθεν καὶ ἔστη καὶ εἶπεν ἰδοὺ δὴ ἔγνωκα ὅτι οὐκ ἔστιν θεὸς ἐν πάσῃ τῇ γῇ ὅτι ἀλλ᾽ ἢ ἐν τῷ Ισραηλ καὶ νῦν λαβὲ τὴν εὐλογίαν παρὰ τοῦ δούλου σου

16 καὶ εἶπεν Ελισαιε ζῇ κύριος ᾧ παρέστην ἐνώπιον αὐτοῦ εἰ λήμψομαι καὶ παρεβιάσατο αὐτὸν λαβεῖν καὶ ἠπείθησεν

17 καὶ εἶπεν Ναιμαν καὶ εἰ μή δοθήτω δὴ τῷ δούλῳ σου γόμος ζεύγους ἡμιόνων καὶ σύ μοι δώσεις ἐκ τῆς γῆς τῆς πυρρᾶς ὅτι οὐ ποιήσει ἔτι ὁ δοῦλός σου ὁλοκαύτωμα καὶ θυσίασμα θεοῖς ἑτέροις ἀλλ᾽ ἢ τῷ κυρίῳ μόνῳ

18 καὶ ἱλάσεται κύριος τῷ δούλῳ σου ἐν τῷ εἰσπορεύεσθαι τὸν κύριόν μου εἰς οἶκον Ρεμμαν προσκυνῆσαι αὐτὸν καὶ ἐπαναπαύσεται ἐπὶ τῆς χειρός μου καὶ προσκυνήσω ἐν οἴκῳ Ρεμμαν ἐν τῷ προσκυνεῖν αὐτὸν ἐν οἴκῳ Ρεμμαν καὶ ἱλάσεται δὴ κύριος τῷ δούλῳ σου ἐν τῷ λόγῳ τούτῳ

19 καὶ εἶπεν Ελισαιε πρὸς Ναιμαν δεῦρο εἰς εἰρήνην καὶ ἀπῆλθεν ἀπ᾽ αὐτοῦ εἰς δεβραθα τῆς γῆς

20 καὶ εἶπεν Γιεζι τὸ παιδάριον Ελισαιε ἰδοὺ ἐφείσατο ὁ κύριός μου τοῦ Ναιμαν τοῦ Σύρου τούτου τοῦ μὴ λαβεῖν ἐκ χειρὸς αὐτοῦ ἃ ἐνήνοχεν ζῇ κύριος ὅτι εἰ μὴ δραμοῦμαι ὀπίσω αὐτοῦ καὶ λήμψομαι παρ᾽ αὐτοῦ τι

21 καὶ ἐδίωξε Γιεζι ὀπίσω τοῦ Ναιμαν καὶ εἶδεν αὐτὸν Ναιμαν τρέχοντα ὀπίσω αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπέστρεψεν ἀπὸ τοῦ ἅρματος εἰς ἀπαντὴν αὐτοῦ

22 καὶ εἶπεν εἰρήνη ὁ κύριός μου ἀπέστειλέν με λέγων ἰδοὺ νῦν ἦλθον πρός με δύο παιδάρια ἐξ ὄρους Εφραιμ ἀπὸ τῶν υἱῶν τῶν προφητῶν δὸς δὴ αὐτοῖς τάλαντον ἀργυρίου καὶ δύο ἀλλασσομένας στολάς

23 καὶ εἶπεν Ναιμαν λαβὲ διτάλαντον ἀργυρίου καὶ ἔλαβεν ἐν δυσὶ θυλάκοις καὶ δύο ἀλλασσομένας στολὰς καὶ ἔδωκεν ἐπὶ δύο παιδάρια αὐτοῦ καὶ ἦραν ἔμπροσθεν αὐτοῦ

24 καὶ ἦλθον εἰς τὸ σκοτεινόν καὶ ἔλαβεν ἐκ τῶν χειρῶν αὐτῶν καὶ παρέθετο ἐν οἴκῳ καὶ ἐξαπέστειλεν τοὺς ἄνδρας

25 καὶ αὐτὸς εἰσῆλθεν καὶ παρειστήκει πρὸς τὸν κύριον αὐτοῦ καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτὸν Ελισαιε πόθεν Γιεζι καὶ εἶπεν Γιεζι οὐ πεπόρευται ὁ δοῦλός σου ἔνθα καὶ ἔνθα

26 καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτὸν Ελισαιε οὐχὶ ἡ καρδία μου ἐπορεύθη μετὰ σοῦ ὅτε ἐπέστρεψεν ὁ ἀνὴρ ἀπὸ τοῦ ἅρματος εἰς συναντήν σοι καὶ νῦν ἔλαβες τὸ ἀργύριον καὶ νῦν ἔλαβες τὰ ἱμάτια καὶ λήμψῃ ἐν αὐτῷ κήπους καὶ ἐλαιῶνας καὶ ἀμπελῶνας καὶ πρόβατα καὶ βόας καὶ παῖδας καὶ παιδίσκας

27 καὶ ἡ λέπρα Ναιμαν κολληθήσεται ἐν σοὶ καὶ ἐν τῷ σπέρματί σου εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα καὶ ἐξῆλθεν ἐκ προσώπου αὐτοῦ λελεπρωμένος ὡσεὶ χιών

1 Naaman princeps militiæ regis Syriæ erat vir magnus apud dominum suum, et honoratus: per illum enim dedit Dominus salutem Syriæ: erat autem vir fortis et dives, sed leprosus.

2 Porro de Syria egressi fuerant latrunculi, et captivam duxerant de terra Israël puellam parvulam, quæ erat in obsequio uxoris Naaman:

3 quæ ait ad dominam suam: Utinam fuisset dominus meus ad prophetam qui est in Samaria, profecto curasset eum a lepra quam habet.

4 Ingressus est itaque Naaman ad dominum suum, et nuntiavit ei, dicens: Sic et sic locuta est puella de terra Israël.

5 Dixitque ei rex Syriæ: Vade, et mittam litteras ad regem Israël. Qui cum profectus esset, et tulisset secum decem talenta argenti, et sex millia aureos, et decem mutatoria vestimentorum,

6 detulit litteras ad regem Israël in hæc verba: Cum acceperis epistolam hanc, scito quod miserim ad te Naaman servum meum, ut cures eum a lepra sua.

7 Cumque legisset rex Israël litteras, scidit vestimenta sua, et ait: Numquid deus ego sum, ut occidere possim et vivificare, quia iste misit ad me ut curem hominem a lepra sua? animadvertite, et videte quod occasiones quærat adversum me.

8 Quod cum audisset Eliseus vir Dei, scidisse videlicet regem Israël vestimenta sua, misit ad eum, dicens: Quare scidisti vestimenta tua? veniat ad me, et sciat esse prophetam in Israël.

9 Venit ergo Naaman cum equis et curribus, et stetit ad ostium domus Elisei:

10 misitque ad eum Eliseus nuntium, dicens: Vade, et lavare septies in Jordane, et recipiet sanitatem caro tua, atque mundaberis.

11 Iratus Naaman recedebat, dicens: Putabam quod egrederetur ad me, et stans invocaret nomen Domini Dei sui, et tangeret manu sua locum lepræ, et curaret me.

12 Numquid non meliores sunt Abana et Pharphar fluvii Damasci, omnibus aquis Israël, ut laver in eis, et munder? Cum ergo vertisset se, et abiret indignans,

13 accesserunt ad eum servi sui, et locuti sunt ei: Pater, etsi rem grandem dixisset tibi propheta, certe facere debueras: quanto magis quia nunc dixit tibi: Lavare, et mundaberis?

14 Descendit, et lavit in Jordane septies juxta sermonem viri Dei: et restituta est caro ejus sicut caro pueri parvuli, et mundatus est.

15 Reversusque ad virum Dei cum universo comitatu suo, venit, et stetit coram eo, et ait: Vere scio quod non sit alius deus in universa terra, nisi tantum in Israël. Obsecro itaque ut accipias benedictionem a servo tuo.

16 At ille respondit: Vivit Dominus, ante quem sto, quia non accipiam. Cumque vim faceret, penitus non acquievit.

17 Dixitque Naaman: Ut vis: sed, obsecro, concede mihi servo tuo ut tollam onus duorum burdonum de terra: non enim faciet ultra servus tuus holocaustum aut victimam diis alienis, nisi Domino.

18 Hoc autem solum est, de quo depreceris Dominum pro servo tuo, quando ingredietur dominus meus templum Remmon ut adoret: et illo innitente super manum meam, si adoravero in templo Remmon, adorante eo in eodem loco, ut ignoscat mihi Dominus servo tuo pro hac re.

19 Qui dixit ei: Vade in pace. Abiit ergo ab eo electo terræ tempore.

20 Dixitque Giezi puer viri Dei: Pepercit dominus meus Naaman Syro isti, ut non acciperet ab eo quæ attulit: vivit Dominus, quia curram post eum, et accipiam ab eo aliquid.

21 Et secutus est Giezi post tergum Naaman: quem cum vidisset ille currentem ad se, desiliit de curru in occursum ejus, et ait: Rectene sunt omnia?

22 Et ille ait: Recte. Dominus meus misit me ad te dicens: Modo venerunt ad me duo adolescentes de monte Ephraim, ex filiis prophetarum: da eis talentum argenti, et vestes mutatorias duplices.

23 Dixitque Naaman: Melius est ut accipias duo talenta. Et coëgit eum, ligavitque duo talenta argenti in duobus saccis, et duplicia vestimenta, et imposuit duobus pueris suis, qui et portaverunt coram eo.

24 Cumque venisset jam vesperi, tulit de manu eorum, et reposuit in domo, dimisitque viros, et abierunt.

25 Ipse autem ingressus, stetit coram domino suo. Et dixit Eliseus: Unde venis, Giezi? Qui respondit: Non ivit servus tuus quoquam.

26 At ille ait: Nonne cor meum in præsenti erat, quando reversus est homo de curru suo in occursum tui? nunc igitur accepisti argentum, et accepisti vestes ut emas oliveta, et vineas, et oves, et boves, et servos, et ancillas.

27 Sed et lepra Naaman adhærebit tibi, et semini tuo usque in sempiternum. Et egressus est ab eo leprosus quasi nix.
