- 20 But Gehazi, R129 the servant of Elisha the man of God, thought, F56 "Behold, my master has spared this Naaman the Aramean, by F57 not receiving from his hands what he brought. As R130 the LORD lives, I will run after him and take something from him." 21 So Gehazi pursued Naaman. When Naaman saw one running after him, he came down from the chariot to meet him and said, "Is all well?" 22 He said, "All R131 is well. My master has sent me, saying, `Behold, just now two young men of the sons of the prophets have come to me from the R132 hill country of Ephraim. Please give them a talent of silver and two R133 changes of clothes.' " 23 Naaman said, "Be R134 pleased to take two talents." And he urged him, and bound two talents of silver in two bags with two changes of clothes and gave them to two of his servants; and they carried them before him. 24 When he came to the hill, F58 he took them from their hand and deposited R135 them in the house, and he sent the men away, and they departed. 25 But he went in and stood before his master. And Elisha said to him, "Where have you been, Gehazi?" And he said, "Your R136 servant went nowhere." 26 Then he said to him, "Did not my heart go with you, when the man turned from his chariot to meet you? Is R137 it a time to receive money and to receive clothes and olive groves and vineyards and sheep and oxen and male and female servants? 27 "Therefore, the leprosy of Naaman shall cling to you and to your descendants F59 forever." So he went out from his presence a R138 leper as white as snow.
