2 Kings 5

Lots of interesting difficulty with this chapter. Did the language change? פקד is such a flexible stem. I have been forced into a circumlocution to avoid overlaps with other stems. Yet none of the dominant glosses for this stem fits the situation of verse 24. אסף is another stem with an unexpected twist designating healing. I have used its dominant gloss gather. But the reader needs to think about it. (I do write to slow us readers down.) Renewed? It is a stem that frames the fourth book of the Psalms. I don't let it designate much else except renewal (adapt, 3 times, blade in one place in Ezra.) Note that take and receive are the same stem  Verse 19 gives me trouble too. What is כברת־ארץ? pondering still - perhaps best to be consistent with Genesis 35 and 48... And look at Naaman falling נפל from the chariot. No, he did not fall, he alighted. But it says fall. Verse 23 also has words that stretch my glosses. Verse 24 promontory, may be just a place name.

2 Kings 5 Fn Min Max Syll
וְ֠נַעֲמָן שַׂר־צְבָ֨א מֶֽלֶךְ־אֲרָ֜ם הָיָ֣ה אִישׁ֩ גָּד֨וֹל לִפְנֵ֤י אֲדֹנָיו֙ וּנְשֻׂ֣א פָנִ֔ים כִּֽי־ב֛וֹ נָֽתַן־יְהוָ֥ה תְּשׁוּעָ֖ה לַאֲרָ֑ם
וְהָאִ֗ישׁ הָיָ֛ה גִּבּ֥וֹר חַ֖יִל מְצֹרָֽע
1 ~ Naaman, chief of the host of the king of Aram, was a great man before his master, and was accorded preference, for in him Yahweh gave salvation to Aram.
And the man was a valiant and wealthy leper.
3d 4C 36
12
וַאֲרָם֙ יָצְא֣וּ גְדוּדִ֔ים וַיִּשְׁבּ֛וּ מֵאֶ֥רֶץ יִשְׂרָאֵ֖ל נַעֲרָ֣ה קְטַנָּ֑ה
וַתְּהִ֕י לִפְנֵ֖י אֵ֥שֶׁת נַעֲמָֽן
2 And Aram had brought out raiding parties and taken captive from the land of Israel a young lass.
And she was in the presence of the wife of Naaman.
3d 4B 23
9
וַתֹּ֙אמֶר֙ אֶל־גְּבִרְתָּ֔הּ אַחֲלֵ֣י אֲדֹנִ֔י לִפְנֵ֥י הַנָּבִ֖יא אֲשֶׁ֣ר בְּשֹׁמְר֑וֹן
אָ֛ז יֶאֱסֹ֥ף אֹת֖וֹ מִצָּרַעְתּֽוֹ
3 And she said to her mistress, Ah that my lord was in the presence of the prophet that is in Samaria.
Then he would gather from him his leprosy.
3d 4B 23
10
וַיָּבֹ֕א וַיַּגֵּ֥ד לַאדֹנָ֖יו לֵאמֹ֑ר
כָּזֹ֤את וְכָזֹאת֙ דִּבְּרָ֣ה הַֽנַּעֲרָ֔ה אֲשֶׁ֖ר מֵאֶ֥רֶץ יִשְׂרָאֵֽל
4 And someone came and told his master, saying,
Such as this and like this, spoke the lass who is from the land of Israel.
3e 4C 11
19
וַיֹּ֤אמֶר מֶֽלֶךְ־אֲרָם֙ לֶךְ־בֹּ֔א וְאֶשְׁלְחָ֥ה סֵ֖פֶר אֶל־מֶ֣לֶךְ יִשְׂרָאֵ֑ל
וַיֵּלֶךְ֩ וַיִּקַּ֨ח בְּיָד֜וֹ עֶ֣שֶׂר כִּכְּרֵי־כֶ֗סֶף וְשֵׁ֤שֶׁת אֲלָפִים֙ זָהָ֔ב וְעֶ֖שֶׂר חֲלִיפ֥וֹת בְּגָדִֽים
5 And the king of Aram said, Go. Enter. And I will send out correspondence to the king of Israel.
So he went, and he took in his hand ten talents of silver, and six thousand of gold, and ten renewed garments.
3e 4C 21
31
וַיָּבֵ֣א הַסֵּ֔פֶר אֶל־מֶ֥לֶךְ יִשְׂרָאֵ֖ל לֵאמֹ֑ר
וְעַתָּ֗ה כְּב֨וֹא הַסֵּ֤פֶר הַזֶּה֙ אֵלֶ֔יךָ הִנֵּ֨ה שָׁלַ֤חְתִּי אֵלֶ֙יךָ֙ אֶת־נַעֲמָ֣ן עַבְדִּ֔י וַאֲסַפְתּ֖וֹ מִצָּרַעְתּֽוֹ
6 And he brought the correspondence to the king of Israel, saying,
And now, when this correspondence comes to you, behold, I have sent to you Naaman my servant, that you may gather him from his leprosy.
3e 4C 14
35
וַיְהִ֡י כִּקְרֹא֩ מֶֽלֶךְ־יִשְׂרָאֵ֨ל אֶת־הַסֵּ֜פֶר וַיִּקְרַ֣ע בְּגָדָ֗יו וַיֹּ֙אמֶר֙ הַאֱלֹהִ֥ים אָ֙נִי֙ לְהָמִ֣ית וּֽלְהַחֲי֔וֹת כִּֽי־זֶה֙ שֹׁלֵ֣חַ אֵלַ֔י לֶאֱסֹ֥ף אִ֖ישׁ מִצָּֽרַעְתּ֑וֹ
כִּ֤י אַךְ־דְּעֽוּ־נָא֙ וּרְא֔וּ כִּֽי־מִתְאַנֶּ֥ה ה֖וּא לִֽי
7 And it happened when the king of Israel recited the correspondence, that he ripped his garments and said, Am I God to put to death and to revive, that this he sent to me, to gather a man from his leprosy?
For but know now, and see, that he is taking an opportunity against me.
3e 4C 50
12
וַיְהִ֞י כִּשְׁמֹ֣עַ ׀ אֱלִישָׁ֣ע אִישׁ־הָאֱלֹהִ֗ים כִּֽי־קָרַ֤ע מֶֽלֶךְ־יִשְׂרָאֵל֙ אֶת־בְּגָדָ֔יו וַיִּשְׁלַח֙ אֶל־הַמֶּ֣לֶךְ לֵאמֹ֔ר לָ֥מָּה קָרַ֖עְתָּ בְּגָדֶ֑יךָ
יָבֹֽא־נָ֣א אֵלַ֔י וְיֵדַ֕ע כִּ֛י יֵ֥שׁ נָבִ֖יא בְּיִשְׂרָאֵֽל
8 And it happened when Elisha, the man of God, heard that the king of Israel had ripped his garments, that he sent to the king, to say, Why would you rip your garments?
Come, if you will, to me, and he will know that there is a prophet in Israel.
3d 4C 42
15
וַיָּבֹ֥א נַעֲמָ֖ן בְּסוּסָ֣יו וּבְרִכְבּ֑וֹ
וַיַּעֲמֹ֥ד פֶּֽתַח־הַבַּ֖יִת לֶאֱלִישָֽׁע
9 And Naaman came with his horses and with his chariot,
and stood at the door of the house of Elisha.
3e 4B 12
13
וַיִּשְׁלַ֥ח אֵלָ֛יו אֱלִישָׁ֖ע מַלְאָ֣ךְ לֵאמֹ֑ר
הָל֗וֹךְ וְרָחַצְתָּ֤ שֶֽׁבַע־פְּעָמִים֙ בַּיַּרְדֵּ֔ן וְיָשֹׁ֧ב בְּשָׂרְךָ֛ לְךָ֖ וּטְהָֽר
10 And Elisha sent to him a messenger, saying,
Go. Wash yourself seven times in the Jordan, and your flesh will return to you and be clean.
3c 4C 12
24
וַיִּקְצֹ֥ף נַעֲמָ֖ן וַיֵּלַ֑ךְ
וַיֹּאמֶר֩ הִנֵּ֨ה אָמַ֜רְתִּי אֵלַ֣י ׀ יֵצֵ֣א יָצ֗וֹא וְעָמַד֙ וְקָרָא֙ בְּשֵׁם־יְהוָ֣ה אֱלֹהָ֔יו וְהֵנִ֥יף יָד֛וֹ אֶל־הַמָּק֖וֹם וְאָסַ֥ף הַמְּצֹרָֽע
11 And Naaman was enraged.
So he went and he said, Behold, I figured, to me he would come out, and stand, then call in the name of Yahweh his God, and would elevate his hand into the place, and the leprosy would be gathered.
3d 4B 9
42
הֲלֹ֡א טוֹב֩ אֲמָנָ֨ה וּפַרְפַּ֜ר נַהֲר֣וֹת דַּמֶּ֗שֶׂק מִכֹּל֙ מֵימֵ֣י יִשְׂרָאֵ֔ל הֲלֹֽא־אֶרְחַ֥ץ בָּהֶ֖ם וְטָהָ֑רְתִּי
וַיִּ֖פֶן וַיֵּ֥לֶךְ בְּחֵמָֽה
12 Are not Amana and Pharpar the rivers of Damascus as good as any of the waters of Israel? Do I not wash in them and get clean?
So he did an about-face and he went off in a huff.
3e 4B 32
9
וַיִּגְּשׁ֣וּ עֲבָדָיו֮ וַיְדַבְּר֣וּ אֵלָיו֒ וַיֹּאמְר֗וּ אָבִי֙ דָּבָ֣ר גָּד֗וֹל הַנָּבִ֛יא דִּבֶּ֥ר אֵלֶ֖יךָ הֲל֣וֹא תַעֲשֶׂ֑ה
וְאַ֛ף כִּֽי־אָמַ֥ר אֵלֶ֖יךָ רְחַ֥ץ וּטְהָֽר
13 And his servants came close and they spoke to him, and they said, My father, a great thing the prophet spoke to you, would you not do?
So also, that he said to you, Wash, and be clean.
3d 4B 33
11
וַיֵּ֗רֶד וַיִּטְבֹּ֤ל בַּיַּרְדֵּן֙ שֶׁ֣בַע פְּעָמִ֔ים כִּדְבַ֖ר אִ֣ישׁ הָאֱלֹהִ֑ים
וַיָּ֣שָׁב בְּשָׂר֗וֹ כִּבְשַׂ֛ר נַ֥עַר קָטֹ֖ן וַיִּטְהָֽר
14 And he descended and he dipped in the Jordan seven times, as the man of God had spoken,
and his flesh was restored as the flesh of a young lad, and he was clean.
3d 4C 21
15
וַיָּשָׁב֩ אֶל־אִ֨ישׁ הָאֱלֹהִ֜ים ה֣וּא וְכָֽל־מַחֲנֵ֗הוּ וַיָּבֹא֮ וַיַּעֲמֹ֣ד לְפָנָיו֒ וַיֹּ֗אמֶר הִנֵּה־נָ֤א יָדַ֙עְתִּי֙ כִּ֣י אֵ֤ין אֱלֹהִים֙ בְּכָל־הָאָ֔רֶץ כִּ֖י אִם־בְּיִשְׂרָאֵ֑ל
וְעַתָּ֛ה קַח־נָ֥א בְרָכָ֖ה מֵאֵ֥ת עַבְדֶּֽךָ
15 And he returned to the man of God, he and all his army, and he came and he stood before him, and said, Behold, if you will, I know that there is no God in all the earth except in Israel.
And now take, if you will, a blessing from your servant.
3d 4C 51
13
וַיֹּ֕אמֶר חַי־יְהוָ֛ה אֲשֶׁר־עָמַ֥דְתִּי לְפָנָ֖יו אִם־אֶקָּ֑ח
וַיִּפְצַר־בּ֥וֹ לָקַ֖חַת וַיְמָאֵֽן
16 And he said, Yahweh lives before whom I stand, I will not receive.
And he urged him to receive, and he would not.

וַיֹּאמֶר֮ נַעֲמָן֒ וָלֹ֕א יֻתַּן־נָ֣א לְעַבְדְּךָ֔ מַשָּׂ֥א צֶֽמֶד־פְּרָדִ֖ים אֲדָמָ֑ה

17 And Naaman said, And will he not permit, if you will, your servant, the load for a pair of mules, of the ground,
for your servant will not do any more going up and offering to other gods, except to Yahweh.
3e 4C 25
24
לַדָּבָ֣ר הַזֶּ֔ה יִסְלַ֥ח יְהוָ֖ה לְעַבְדֶּ֑ךָ
בְּב֣וֹא אֲדֹנִ֣י בֵית־רִמּוֹן֩ לְהִשְׁתַּחֲוֺ֨ת שָׁ֜מָּה וְה֣וּא ׀ נִשְׁעָ֣ן עַל־יָדִ֗י וְהִֽשְׁתַּחֲוֵ֙יתִי֙ בֵּ֣ית רִמֹּ֔ן בְּהִשְׁתַּחֲוָיָ֙תִי֙ בֵּ֣ית רִמֹּ֔ן יִסְלַח יְהוָ֥ה לְעַבְדְּךָ֖ בַּדָּבָ֥ר הַזֶּֽה
18 For this matter, Yahweh forgive your servant.
When my lord enters the house of Rimmon to worship there, and he leans on my hand, and I worship in the house of Rimmon. When I worship in the house of Rimmon, Yahweh forgive your servant in this matter.
3e 4B 13
54
וַיֹּ֥אמֶר ל֖וֹ לֵ֣ךְ לְשָׁל֑וֹם
וַיֵּ֥לֶךְ מֵאִתּ֖וֹ כִּבְרַת־אָֽרֶץ
19 And he said to him, Go in peace.
And he went from him a great deal of land.

וַיֹּ֣אמֶר גֵּיחֲזִ֗י נַעַר֮ אֱלִישָׁ֣ע אִישׁ־הָאֱלֹהִים֒ הִנֵּ֣ה ׀ חָשַׂ֣ךְ אֲדֹנִ֗י אֶֽת־נַעֲמָ֤ן הָֽאֲרַמִּי֙ הַזֶּ֔ה מִקַּ֥חַת מִיָּד֖וֹ אֵ֣ת אֲשֶׁר־הֵבִ֑יא
חַי־יְהוָה֙ כִּֽי־אִם־רַ֣צְתִּי אַחֲרָ֔יו וְלָקַחְתִּ֥י מֵאִתּ֖וֹ מְאֽוּמָה
20 And Gehazi, the lad of Elisha, the man of God, said, Behold my lord has resisted Naaman, this Aramaean, to receive from his hand what he had brought.
Yahweh lives, but I would rather race behind him, and I will receive from him whatever.
3e 4C 44
21
וַיִּרְדֹּ֥ף גֵּיחֲזִ֖י אַחֲרֵ֣י נַֽעֲמָ֑ן

21 And Gehazi pursued after Naaman.
And Naaman saw a racer behind him, and he fell from the chariot to encounter him, and he said, Is it well?
3c 4C 12
28
וַיֹּ֣אמֶר ׀ שָׁל֗וֹם אֲדֹנִי֮ שְׁלָחַ֣נִי לֵאמֹר֒ הִנֵּ֣ה עַתָּ֡ה זֶ֠ה בָּ֣אוּ אֵלַ֧י שְׁנֵֽי־נְעָרִ֛ים מֵהַ֥ר אֶפְרַ֖יִם מִבְּנֵ֣י הַנְּבִיאִ֑ים
תְּנָה־נָּ֤א לָהֶם֙ כִּכַּר־כֶּ֔סֶף וּשְׁתֵּ֖י חֲלִפ֥וֹת בְּגָדִֽים
22 And he said, Peace. My lord has sent me, saying, Behold, this minute, two of the lads of mount Ephraim among the children of the prophets have come to me.
Give, please, to them a talent of silver and two renewed garments.
3c 4C 37
17
וַיֹּ֣אמֶר נַעֲמָ֔ן הוֹאֵ֖ל קַ֣ח כִּכָּרָ֑יִם
וַיִּפְרָץ־בּ֗וֹ וַיָּצַר֩ כִּכְּרַ֨יִם כֶּ֜סֶף בִּשְׁנֵ֣י חֲרִטִ֗ים וּשְׁתֵּי֙ חֲלִפ֣וֹת בְּגָדִ֔ים וַיִּתֵּן֙ אֶל־שְׁנֵ֣י נְעָרָ֔יו וַיִּשְׂא֖וּ לְפָנָֽיו
23 And Naaman said, Be content. Take two talents.
And he broke it out, and he consolidated two talents of silver in two pockets, and two renewed garments, that he gave to two of his lads, that they bore before him.
3e 4B 13
39
וַיָּבֹא֙ אֶל־הָעֹ֔פֶל וַיִּקַּ֥ח מִיָּדָ֖ם וַיִּפְקֹ֣ד בַּבָּ֑יִת
וַיְשַׁלַּ֥ח אֶת־הָאֲנָשִׁ֖ים וַיֵּלֵֽכוּ
24 And he came to the promontory, and he took from their hand, to entrust in the house,
and he sent the men away, and they went.

וְהוּא־בָא֙ וַיַּעֲמֹ֣ד אֶל־אֲדֹנָ֔יו וַיֹּ֤אמֶר אֵלָיו֙ אֱלִישָׁ֔ע מֵאַ֖יִן גֵּחֲזִ֑י
וַיֹּ֕אמֶר לֹֽא־הָלַ֥ךְ עַבְדְּךָ֖ אָ֥נֶה וָאָֽנָה
25 And he entered and he stood by his master, and to him Elisha said, From where, Gehazi?
And he said, Your servant went nowhere whatever.
3e 4C 24
13
וַיֹּ֤אמֶר אֵלָיו֙ לֹא־לִבִּ֣י הָלַ֔ךְ כַּאֲשֶׁ֧ר הָֽפַךְ־אִ֛ישׁ מֵעַ֥ל מֶרְכַּבְתּ֖וֹ לִקְרָאתֶ֑ךָ

26 And he said to him, Did my heart not go when a man turned from his chariot to encounter you?
Is it time to receive the silver or to receive garments, or olive trees, or vineyards, or sheep, or oxen, or male servants, or female servants?
3c 4C 24
34
וְצָרַ֤עַת נַֽעֲמָן֙ תִּֽדְבַּק־בְּךָ֔ וּֽבְזַרְעֲךָ לְעוֹלָ֑ם
וַיֵּצֵ֥א מִלְּפָנָ֖יו מְצֹרָ֥ע כַּשָּֽׁלֶג
27 The leprosy of Naaman will cleave in you, and in your seed, forever.
And he went out from his presence a leper, like snow.
