1 Now Naiman, the captain of the host of Syria, was a great man before his master, and highly respected, because by him the Lord had given deliverance to Syria, and the man was mighty in strength, [but] a leper. 2 And the Syrians went forth in small bands, and took captive out of the land of Israel a little maid: and she waited on Naiman’s wife. 3 And she said to her mistress, O that my lord were before the prophet of God in Samaria; then he would recover him from his leprosy. 4 And she went in and told her lord, and said, Thus and thus spoke the maid from the land of Israel. 5 And the king of Syria said to Naiman, Go to, go, and I will send a letter to the king of Israel. And he went, and took in his hand ten talents of silver, and six thousand pieces of gold, and ten changes of raiment. 6 And he brought the letter to the king of Israel, saying, Now then, as soon as this letter shall reach thee, behold, I have sent to thee my servant Naiman, and thou shalt recover him from his leprosy. 7 And it came to pass, when the king of Israel read the letter, [that] he rent his garments, and said, [Am] I God, to kill and to make alive, that this [man] sends to me to recover a man of his leprosy? consider, however, I pray you, and see that this [man] seeks an occasion against me. 8 And it came to pass, when Elisaie heard that the king of Israel had rent his garments, that he sent to the king of Israel, saying, Wherefore hast thou rent thy garments? Let Naiman, I pray thee, come to me, and let him know that there is a prophet in Israel. 9 So Naiman came with horse and chariot, and stood at the door of the house of Elisaie. 10 And Elisaie sent a messenger to him, saying, Go and wash seven times in Jordan, and thy flesh shall return to thee, and thou shalt be cleansed. 11 And Naiman was angry, and departed, and said, Behold, I said, He will by all means come out to me, and stand, and call on the name of his God, and lay his hand upon the place, and recover the leper. 12 [Are] not the Abana and Pharphar, rivers of Damascus, better than all the waters of Israel? may I not go and wash in them, and be cleansed? and he turned and went away in a rage. 13 And his servants came near and said to him, [Suppose] the prophet had spoken a great thing to thee, wouldest thou not perform it? yet he has but said to thee, Wash, and be cleansed. 14 So Naiman went down, and dipped himself seven times in Jordan, according to the word of Elisaie: and his flesh returned to him as the flesh of a little child, and he was cleansed. 15 And he and all his company returned to Elisaie, and he came and stood before him, and said, Behold, I know that there is no God in all the earth, save only in Israel: and now receive a blessing of thy servant. 16 And Elisaie said, [As] the Lord lives, before whom I stand, I will not take [one]. And he pressed him to take [one]: but he would not. 17 And Naiman said, Well then, if not, let there be given to thy servant, I pray thee, the load [of a] yoke of mules; and thou shalt give me of the red earth: for henceforth thy servant will not offer whole-burnt-offering or sacrifice to other gods, but only to the Lord by [reason of] this thing. 18 And let the Lord be propitious to thy servant when my master goes into the house of Remman to worship there, and he shall lean on my hand, and I shall bow down in the house of Remman when he bows down in the house of Remman; even let the Lord, I pray, be merciful to thy servant in this matter. 19 And Elisaie said to Naiman, Go in peace. And he departed from him a little way. 20 And Giezi the servant of Elisaie said, Behold, my Lord has spared this Syrian Naiman, so as not to take of his hand what he has brought: as the Lord lives, I will surely run after him, and take somewhat of him. 21 So Giezi followed after Naiman: and Naiman saw him running after him, and turned back from his chariot to meet him. 22 And [Giezi] said, All is well: my master has sent me, saying, Behold, now are there come to me two young men of the sons of the prophets from mount Ephraim; give them, I pray thee, a talent of silver, and two changes of raiment. 23 And [Naiman] said, Take two talents of silver. And he took two talents of silver in two bags, and two changes of raiment, and put them upon two of his servants, and they bore them before him. 24 And he came to a secret place, and took them from their hands, and laid them up in the house, and dismissed the men. 25 And he went in himself and stood before his master; and Elisaie said to him, 26 Whence [comest thou], Giezi? and Giezi said, Thy servant has not been hither or thither. And Elisaie said to him, Went not my heart with thee, when the man returned from his chariot to meet thee? and now thou hast received silver, and now thou hast received raiment, and olive yards, and vineyards, and sheep, and oxen, and menservants, and maidservants. 27 The leprosy also of Naiman shall cleave to thee, and to thy seed for ever. And he went out from his presence leprous, like snow. ΚΑΙ Ναιμὰν ὁ ἄρχων τῆς δυνάμεως Συρίας ἦν ἀνὴρ μέγας ἐνώπιον τοῦ κυρίου αὐτοῦ καὶ τεθαυμασμένος προσώπῳ, ὅτι ἐν αὐτῷ ἔδωκε Κύριος σωτηρίαν Συρίᾳ· καὶ ὁ ἀνὴρ ἦν δυνατὸς ἰσχύϊ, λελεπρωμένος. 2 καὶ Συρία ἐξῆλθον μονόζωνοι καὶ ᾐχμαλώτευσαν ἐκ γῆς ᾿Ισραὴλ νεάνιδα μικράν, καὶ ἦν ἐνώπιον τῆς γυναικὸς Ναιμάν. 3 ἡ δὲ εἶπε τῇ κυρίᾳ αὐτῆς· ὄφελον ὁ κύριός μου ἐνώπιον τοῦ προφήτου τοῦ Θεοῦ τοῦ ἐν Σαμαρείᾳ, τότε ἀποσυνάξει αὐτὸν ἀπὸ τῆς λέπρας αὐτοῦ. 4 καὶ εἰσῆλθε καὶ ἀπήγγειλε τῷ κυρίῳ ἑαυτῆς καὶ εἶπεν· οὕτως καὶ οὕτως ἐλάλησεν ἡ νεᾶνις ἡ ἐκ γῆς ᾿Ισραήλ. 5 καὶ εἶπε βασιλεὺς Συρίας πρὸς Ναιμάν· δεῦρο εἴσελθε, καὶ ἐξαποστελῶ βιβλίον πρὸς βασιλέα ᾿Ισραήλ· καὶ ἐπορεύθη καὶ ἔλαβεν ἐν τῇ χειρὶ αὐτοῦ δέκα τάλαντα ἀργυρίου καὶ ἑξακισχιλίους χρυσοῦς καὶ δέκα ἀλλασσομένας στολάς. 6 καὶ ἤνεγκε τὸ βιβλίον πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα ᾿Ισραὴλ λέγων· καὶ νῦν ὡς ἂν ἔλθῃ τὸ βιβλίον τοῦτο πρὸς σέ, ἰδοὺ ἀπέστειλα πρός σε Ναιμὰν τὸν δοῦλόν μου, καὶ ἀποσυνάξεις αὐτὸν ἀπὸ τῆς λέπρας αὐτοῦ. 7 καὶ ἐγένετο ὡς ἀνέγνω βασιλεὺς ᾿Ισραὴλ τὸ βιβλίον, διέρρηξε τὰ ἱμάτια αὐτοῦ καὶ εἶπεν· ὁ Θεὸς ἐγὼ τοῦ θανατῶσαι καὶ ζωοποιῆσαι, ὅτι οὖτος ἀποστέλλει πρός με ἀποσυνάξαι ἄνδρα ἀπὸ τῆς λέπρας αὐτοῦ; ὅτι πλὴν γνῶτε δὴ καὶ ἴδετε ὅτι προφασίζεται οὗτός μοι. 8 καὶ ἐγένετο ὡς ἤκουσεν ῾Ελισαιὲ ὅτι διέρρηξεν ὁ βασιλεὺς ᾿Ισραὴλ τὰ ἱμάτια αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἀπέστειλε πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα ᾿Ισραὴλ λέγων· ἱνατὶ διέρρηξας τὰ ἱμάτιά σου; ἐλθέτω δὴ πρός με Ναιμὰν καὶ γνώτω ὅτι ἐστὶ προφήτης ἐν ᾿Ισραήλ. 9 καὶ ἦλθε Ναιμὰν ἐν ἵππῳ καὶ ἅρματι καὶ ἔστη ἐπὶ θύρας οἴκου ῾Ελισαιέ. 10 καὶ ἀπέστειλεν ῾Ελισαιὲ ἄγγελον πρὸς αὐτὸν λέγων· πορευθεὶς λοῦσαι ἑπτάκις ἐν τῷ ᾿Ιορδάνῃ, καὶ ἐπιστρέψει ἡ σάρξ σού σοι, καὶ καθαρισθήσῃ. 11 καὶ ἐθυμώθη Ναιμὰν καὶ ἀπῆλθε καὶ εἶπεν· ἰδοὺ εἶπον ὅτι πρός με πάντως ἐξελεύσεται καὶ στήσεται καὶ ἐπικαλέσεται ἐν ὀνόματι Θεοῦ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπιθήσει τὴν χεῖρα αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τὸν τόπον καὶ ἀποσυνάξει τὸ λεπρόν· 12 οὐχὶ ἀγαθὸς ᾿Αβανὰ καὶ Φαρφὰρ ποταμοὶ Δαμασκοῦ ὑπὲρ πάντα τὰ ὕδατα ᾿Ισραήλ; οὐχὶ πορευθεὶς λούσομαι ἐν αὐτοῖς καὶ καθαρισθήσομαι; καὶ ἐξέκλινε καὶ ἀπῆλθεν ἐν θυμῷ. 13 καὶ ἤγγισαν οἱ παῖδες αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐλάλησαν πρὸς αὐτόν· μέγα λόγον ἐλάλησεν ὁ προφήτης πρὸς σέ· οὐχὶ ποιήσεις; καὶ ὅτι εἶπε πρὸς σέ, λοῦσαι καὶ καθαρίσθητι. 14 καὶ κατέβη Ναιμὰν καὶ ἐβαπτίσατο ἐν τῷ ᾿Ιορδάνῃ ἑπτάκις κατὰ τὸ ῥῆμα ῾Ελισαιέ, καὶ ἐπέστρεψεν ἡ σάρξ αὐτοῦ ὡς σάρξ παιδαρίου μικροῦ, καὶ ἐκαθαρίσθη. 15 καὶ ἐπέστρεψε πρὸς ῾Ελισαιὲ αὐτὸς καὶ πᾶσα ἡ παρεμβολὴ αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἦλθε καὶ ἔστη ἐνώπιον αὐτοῦ καὶ εἶπεν· ἰδοὺ δὴ ἔγνωκα ὅτι οὐκ ἔστι Θεὸς ἐν πάσῃ τῇ γῇ, ὅτι ἀλλ᾿ ἢ ἐν τῷ ᾿Ισραήλ· καὶ νῦν λαβὲ τὴν εὐλογίαν παρὰ τοῦ δούλου σου. 16 καὶ εἶπεν ῾Ελισαιέ· ζῇ Κύριος, ᾧ παρέστην ἐνώπιον αὐτοῦ, εἰ λήψομαι· καὶ παρεβιάσατο αὐτὸν λαβεῖν, καὶ ἠπείθησε. 17 καὶ εἶπε Ναιμάν· καὶ εἰ μή, δοθήτω δὴ τῷ δούλῳ σου γόμος ζεῦγος ἡμιόνων, 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 Ῥεμμὰν προσκυνῆσαι ἐκεῖ καὶ αὐτὸς ἐπαναπαύσεται ἐπὶ τῆς χειρός μου καὶ προσκυνήσω ἐν οἴκῳ Ῥεμμὰν ἐν τῷ προσκυνεῖν αὐτὸν ἐν οἴκῳ Ῥεμμάν, καὶ ἱλάσεται δὴ Κύριος τῷ δούλῳ σου ἐν τῷ λόγῳ τούτῳ. 19 καὶ εἶπεν ῾Ελισαιὲ πρὸς Ναιμάν· δεῦρο εἰς εἰρήνην. καὶ ἀπῆλθεν ἀπ’ αὐτοῦ εἰς δεβραθὰ τῆς γῆς. 20 καὶ εἶπε Γιεζὶ τὸ παιδάριον ῾Ελισαιέ· ἰδοὺ ἐφείσατο ὁ κύριός μου τοῦ Ναιμὰν τοῦ Σύρου τούτου τοῦ μὴ λαβεῖν ἐκ χειρὸς αὐτοῦ ἃ ἐνήνοχε· ζῇ Κύριος ὅτι εἰ μὴ δραμοῦμαι ὀπίσω αὐτοῦ καὶ λήψομαι ἀπ᾿ αὐτοῦ τι. 21 καὶ ἐδίωξε Γιεζὶ ὀπίσω τοῦ Ναιμάν, καὶ εἶδεν αὐτὸν Ναιμὰν τρέχοντα ὀπίσω αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπέστρεψεν ἀπὸ τοῦ ἅρματος εἰς ἀπαντὴν αὐτοῦ καὶ εἶπεν· εἰρήνη· 22 ὁ κύριός μου ἀπέστειλέ με λέγων· ἰδοὺ νῦν ἦλθον πρός με δύο παιδάρια ἐξ ὄρους ᾿Εφραὶμ ἀπὸ τῶν υἱῶν τῶν προφητῶν· δὸς δὴ αὐτοῖς τάλαντον ἀργυρίου καὶ δύο ἀλλασσομένας στολάς. 23 καὶ εἶπε· λαβὲ διτάλαντον ἀργυρίου· καὶ ἔλαβε δύο τάλαντα ἀργυρίου ἐν δυσὶ θυλάκοις καὶ δύο ἀλλασσομένας στολὰς καὶ ἔδωκεν ἐπὶ δύο παιδάρια αὐτοῦ. καὶ ᾖραν ἔμπροσθεν αὐτοῦ. 24 καὶ ἦλθον εἰς τὸ σκοτεινόν, καὶ ἔλαβεν ἐκ τῶν χειρῶν αὐτῶν καὶ παρέθετο ἐν οἴκῳ καὶ ἐξαπέστειλε τοὺς ἄνδρας. 25 καὶ αὐτὸς εἰσῆλθε καὶ παρεστήκει πρὸς τὸν κύριον αὐτοῦ· καὶ εἶπε πρὸς αὐτὸν ῾Ελισαιέ· πόθεν, Γιεζί; καὶ εἶπε Γιεζί· οὐ πεπόρευται ὁ δοῦλός σου ἔνθα καὶ ἔνθα. 26 καὶ εἶπε πρὸς αὐτὸν ῾Ελισαιέ· οὐχὶ ἡ καρδία μου ἐπορεύθη μετὰ σοῦ, ὅτε ἐπέστεψεν ὁ ἀνὴρ ἀπὸ τοῦ ἅρματος εἰς συναντήν σοι; καὶ νῦν ἔλαβες τὸ ἀργύριον, καὶ νῦν ἔλαβες τὰ ἱμάτια καὶ ἐλαιῶνας καὶ ἀμπελῶνας καὶ πρόβατα καὶ βόας καὶ παῖδας καὶ παιδίσκας· 27 καὶ ἡ λέπρα Ναιμὰν κολληθήσεται ἐν σοὶ καὶ ἐν τῷ σπέρματί σου εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα. καὶ ἐξῆλθεν ἐκ προσώπου αὐτοῦ λελεπρωμένος ὡσεὶ χιών.
