And he said unto him
That is, the prophet said to Naaman:
go in peace:
in peace of mind; be assured that God has pardoned this and all other transgressions:
so he departed from him a little way;
about a mile, as the Targum, and so other Jewish writers; of this phrase, (See Gill on Genesis 35:16), some say a land's length, that is, about one hundred and twenty feet; rather it was a thousand cubits, or half a mile.
