2 Kings 5

JUB 1 Now Naaman, captain of the host of the king of Syria, was a great man with his master and in high esteem because by him the LORD had given salvation unto Syria; he was also a mighty man in valour, <em>but he was</em> a leper. NIV 1 Now Naaman was commander of the army of the king of Aram. He was a great man in the sight of his master and highly regarded, because through him the LORD had given victory to Aram. He was a valiant soldier, but he had leprosy. JUB 2 And the Syrians had gone out by companies and had brought away captive out of the land of Israel a little maid, and she waited on Naaman’s wife. NIV 2 Now bands of raiders from Aram had gone out and had taken captive a young girl from Israel, and she served Naaman’s wife. JUB 3 And she said unto her mistress, If my lord would ask the prophet that <em>is</em> in Samaria, he would remove his leprosy. NIV 3 She said to her mistress, “If only my master would see the prophet who is in Samaria! He would cure him of his leprosy.” JUB 4 And <em>Naaman</em> went in and told his lord, saying, Thus and thus said the maid that <em>is</em> of the land of Israel. NIV 4 Naaman went to his master and told him what the girl from Israel had said. JUB 5 And the king of Syria said, Go, depart, and I will send a letter unto the king of Israel. And he departed, and took with him ten talents of silver and six thousand <em>pieces</em> of gold, and ten changes of raiment. NIV 5 “By all means, go,” the king of Aram replied. “I will send a letter to the king of Israel.” So Naaman left, taking with him ten talents of silver, six thousand shekels of gold and ten sets of clothing. JUB 6 And he <em>also</em> took the letter to the king of Israel, which said, Now when this letter is come unto thee, behold, I have <em>therewith</em> sent Naaman, my slave, to thee, that thou may remove his leprosy. NIV 6 The letter that he took to the king of Israel read: “With this letter I am sending my servant Naaman to you so that you may cure him of his leprosy.” JUB 7 And when the king of Israel read the letter, he rent his clothes and said, <em>Am</em> I God, to kill and to give life, that this man sends unto me to remove the leprosy of this man? Therefore now consider and see how he seeks a quarrel against me. NIV 7 As soon as the king of Israel read the letter, he tore his robes and said, “Am I God? Can I kill and bring back to life? Why does this fellow send someone to me to be cured of his leprosy? See how he is trying to pick a quarrel with me!” JUB 8 And when Elisha, the man of God, heard that the king of Israel had rent his clothes, he sent to the king, saying, Why hast thou rent thy clothes? Let him come now to me, and he shall know that there is a prophet in Israel. NIV 8 When Elisha the man of God heard that the king of Israel had torn his robes, he sent him this message: “Why have you torn your robes? Have the man come to me and he will know that there is a prophet in Israel.” JUB 9 So Naaman came with his horses and with his chariot and stood at the door of the house of Elisha. NIV 9 So Naaman went with his horses and chariots and stopped at the door of Elisha’s house. JUB 10 And Elisha sent a messenger unto him, saying, Go and wash in the Jordan seven times, and thy flesh shall be restored, and thou shalt be clean. NIV 10 Elisha sent a messenger to say to him, “Go, wash yourself seven times in the Jordan, and your flesh will be restored and you will be cleansed.” JUB 11 But Naaman went away angry and said, Behold, I thought, He will surely come out to me and stand and call on the name of the LORD, his God, and strike his hand over the place and remove the leprosy. NIV 11 But Naaman went away angry and said, “I thought that he would surely come out to me and stand and call on the name of the LORD his God, wave his hand over the spot and cure me of my leprosy. JUB 12 <em>Are</em> not Abana and Pharpar, rivers of Damascus, better than all the waters of Israel? May I not wash in them and be clean? So he turned and went away in a rage. NIV 12 Are not Abana and Pharpar, the rivers of Damascus, better than all the waters of Israel? Couldn’t I wash in them and be cleansed?” So he turned and went off in a rage. JUB 13 Then his slaves came near and spoke unto him, and said, My father, <em>if</em> the prophet had bid thee <em>do some</em> great thing, would thou not have done <em>it</em>? How much rather then, when he saith to thee, Wash and be clean? NIV 13 Naaman’s servants went to him and said, “My father, if the prophet had told you to do some great thing, would you not have done it? How much more, then, when he tells you, ‘Wash and be cleansed’!” JUB 14 Then went he down and dipped himself seven times in the Jordan, according to the word of the man of God; and his flesh came again like unto the flesh of a little child, and he was clean. NIV 14 So he went down and dipped himself in the Jordan seven times, as the man of God had told him, and his flesh was restored and became clean like that of a young boy. JUB 15 And he returned to the man of God, he and all his company, and came and stood before him, and he said, Behold, now I know that <em>there is</em> no God in all the earth, but in Israel. Now therefore, I pray thee, take a blessing from thy slave. NIV 15 Then Naaman and all his attendants went back to the man of God. He stood before him and said, “Now I know that there is no God in all the world except in Israel. So please accept a gift from your servant.” JUB 16 But he said, As the LORD lives, before whom I stand, I will receive none. And he urged him to take <em>it</em>, but he refused. NIV 16 The prophet answered, “As surely as the LORD lives, whom I serve, I will not accept a thing.” And even though Naaman urged him, he refused. JUB 17 Then Naaman said, Shall there not then, I pray thee, be given to thy slave two mules’ burden of earth? For from now one thy slave will offer neither burnt offering nor sacrifice unto other gods, but unto the LORD. NIV 17 “If you will not,” said Naaman, “please let me, your servant, be given as much earth as a pair of mules can carry, for your servant will never again make burnt offerings and sacrifices to any other god but the LORD. JUB 18 In this thing <em>may</em> the LORD pardon thy slave, <em>that</em> when my master goes into the house of Rimmon to worship there, and he leans on my hand, if I also bow myself in the house of Rimmon, that the LORD pardon thy slave in this thing, if I bow down myself in the house of Rimmon. NIV 18 But may the LORD forgive your servant for this one thing: When my master enters the temple of Rimmon to bow down and he is leaning on my arm and I have to bow there also—when I bow down in the temple of Rimmon, may the LORD forgive your servant for this.” JUB 19 And he said unto him, Go in peace. So he departed from him a little way. NIV 19 “Go in peace,” Elisha said. After Naaman had traveled some distance, JUB 20 But Gehazi, the servant of Elisha the man of God, said, Behold, my master has spared Naaman, this Syrian, in not receiving at his hands that which he brought. As the LORD lives, I will run after him and take something from him. NIV 20 Gehazi, the servant of Elisha the man of God, said to himself, “My master was too easy on Naaman, this Aramean, by not accepting from him what he brought. As surely as the LORD lives, I will run after him and get something from him.” JUB 21 So Gehazi followed after Naaman. And when Naaman saw <em>him</em> running after him, he lighted down from the chariot to meet him and said, <em>Is</em> there no peace? NIV 21 So Gehazi hurried after Naaman. When Naaman saw him running toward him, he got down from the chariot to meet him. “Is everything all right?” he asked. JUB 22 And he said, Peace. My master has sent me, saying, Behold, even now two young men of the sons of the prophets came to me from Mount Ephraim; give them, I pray thee, a talent of silver and two changes of garments. NIV 22 “Everything is all right,” Gehazi answered. “My master sent me to say, ‘Two young men from the company of the prophets have just come to me from the hill country of Ephraim. Please give them a talent of silver and two sets of clothing.’ ” JUB 23 And Naaman said, If you wish take two talents. And he urged him and bound two talents of silver in two bags with two changes of garments and laid <em>them</em> upon two of his servants; and they bore <em>them</em> before him. NIV 23 “By all means, take two talents,” said Naaman. He urged Gehazi to accept them, and then tied up the two talents of silver in two bags, with two sets of clothing. He gave them to two of his servants, and they carried them ahead of Gehazi. JUB 24 And when he came to a secret place, he took <em>them</em> from their hand and bestowed <em>them</em> in the house; and he let the men go, and they departed. NIV 24 When Gehazi came to the hill, he took the things from the servants and put them away in the house. He sent the men away and they left. JUB 25 But <em>when</em> he went in and stood before his master, Elisha said unto him, From where <em>comest thou</em>, Gehazi? And he said, Thy servant went nowhere. NIV 25 When he went in and stood before his master, Elisha asked him, “Where have you been, Gehazi?” “Your servant didn’t go anywhere,” Gehazi answered. JUB 26 Then he said unto him, Did not my heart go <em>with thee</em> when the man turned again from his chariot to meet thee? <em>Is it</em> a time to receive money and to receive garments and oliveyards and vineyards and sheep and oxen and menslaves and maidslaves? NIV 26 But Elisha said to him, “Was not my spirit with you when the man got down from his chariot to meet you? Is this the time to take money or to accept clothes—or olive groves and vineyards, or flocks and herds, or male and female slaves? JUB 27 The leprosy therefore of Naaman shall cleave unto thee and unto thy seed for ever. And he went out from his presence a leper <em>as white</em> as snow. NIV 27 Naaman’s leprosy will cling to you and to your descendants forever.” Then Gehazi went from Elisha’s presence and his skin was leprous—it had become as white as snow.
