2 Kings 5:19-21

5:19 Elisha 1  said to him, “Go in peace.”

When he had gone a short distance, 2  5:20 Gehazi, the prophet Elisha’s servant, thought, 3  “Look, my master did not accept what this Syrian Naaman offered him. 4  As certainly as the Lord lives, I will run after him and accept something from him.” 5:21 So Gehazi ran after Naaman. When Naaman saw someone running after him, he got down from his chariot to meet him and asked, “Is everything all right?” 5
