||Naaman princeps militiae regis Syriae erat vir magnus apud dominum suum et honoratus per illum enim dedit Dominus salutem Syriae erat autem vir fortis et dives sed leprosus
Naaman, general of the army, of the king of Syria, was a great man with his master, and honourable: for by him the Lord gave deliverance to Syria: and he was a valiant man, and rich, but a leper.
||porro de Syria egressi fuerant latrunculi et captivam duxerant de terra Israhel puellam parvulam quae erat in obsequio uxoris Naaman
Now there had gone out robbers from Syria, and had led away captive out of the land of Israel, a little maid, and she waited upon Naaman's wife.
||quae ait ad dominam suam utinam fuisset dominus meus ad prophetam qui est in Samaria profecto curasset eum a lepra quam habet
And she said to her mistress: I wish my master had been with the prophet that is in Samaria: he would certainly have healed him of the leprosy which he hath.
||ingressus est itaque Naaman ad dominum suum et nuntiavit ei dicens sic et sic locuta est puella de terra Israhel
Then Naaman went in to his lord, and told him, saying: Thus and thus said the girl from the land of Israel.
||dixitque ei rex Syriae vade et mittam litteras ad regem Israhel qui cum profectus esset et tulisset secum decem talenta argenti et sex milia aureos et decem mutatoria vestimentorum
And the king of Syria said to him: Go; and I will send a letter to the king of Israel. And he departed, and took with him ten talents of silver, and six thousand pieces of gold, and ten changes of raiment;
||detulit litteras ad regem Israhel in haec verba cum acceperis epistulam hanc scito quod miserim ad te Naaman servum meum ut cures eum a lepra sua
And brought the letter to the king of Israel, in these words: When thou shalt receive this letter, know that I have sent to thee Naaman, my servant, that thou mayst heal him of his leprosy.
||cumque legisset rex Israhel litteras scidit vestimenta sua et ait numquid Deus sum ut occidere possim et vivificare quia iste misit ad me ut curem hominem a lepra sua animadvertite et videte quod occasiones quaerat adversum me
And when the king of Israel had read the letter, he rent his garments, and said: Am I God, to be able to kill and give life, that this man hath sent to me to heal a man of his leprosy? mark, and see how he seeketh occasions against me.
||quod cum audisset Heliseus vir Dei scidisse videlicet regem Israhel vestimenta sua misit ad eum dicens quare scidisti vestimenta tua veniat ad me et sciat esse prophetam in Israhel
And when Eliseus, the man of God, had heard this, to wit, that the king of Israel had rent his garments, he sent to him, saying: Why hast thou rent thy garments? let him come to me, and let him know that there is a prophet in Israel.
||venit ergo Naaman cum equis et curribus et stetit ad ostium domus Helisei
So Naaman came with his horses and chariots, and stood at the door of the house of Eliseus:
||misitque ad eum Heliseus nuntium dicens vade et lavare septies in Iordane et recipiet sanitatem caro tua atque mundaberis
And Eliseus sent a messenger to him, saying: Go, and wash seven times in the Jordan, and thy flesh shall recover health, and thou shalt be clean.
||iratus Naaman recedebat dicens putabam quod egrederetur ad me et stans invocaret nomen Domini Dei sui et tangeret manu sua locum leprae et curaret me
Naaman was angry, and went away, saying: I thought he would have come out to me, and standing, would have invoked the name of the Lord his God, and touched with his hand the place of the leprosy, and healed me.
||numquid non meliores sunt Abana et Pharphar fluvii Damasci omnibus aquis Israhel ut laver in eis et munder cum ergo vertisset se et abiret indignans
Are not the Abana, and the Pharphar, rivers of Damascus, better than all the waters of Israel, that I may wash in them, and be made clean? So as he turned, and was going away with indignation,
||accesserunt ad eum servi sui et locuti sunt ei pater si rem grandem dixisset tibi propheta certe facere debueras quanto magis quia nunc dixit tibi lavare et mundaberis
His servants came to him, and said to him: Father, if the prophet had bid thee do some great thing, surely thou shouldst have done it: how much rather what he now hath said to thee: Wash, and thou shalt be clean?
||descendit et lavit in Iordane septies iuxta sermonem viri Dei et restituta est caro eius sicut caro pueri parvuli et mundatus est
Then he went down, and washed in the Jordan seven times, according to the word of the man of God; and his flesh was restored, like the flesh of a little child: and he was made clean.
||reversusque ad virum Dei cum universo comitatu suo venit et stetit coram eo et ait vere scio quod non sit Deus in universa terra nisi tantum in Israhel obsecro itaque ut accipias benedictionem a servo tuo
And returning to the man of God, with all his train, he came, and stood before him, and said: In truth, I know there is no other God, in all the earth, but only in Israel: I beseech thee, therefore, take a blessing of thy servant.
||at ille respondit vivit Dominus ante quem sto quia non accipiam cumque vim faceret penitus non adquievit
But he answered: As the Lord liveth, before whom I stand, I will receive none. And when he pressed him, he still refused.
||dixitque Naaman ut vis sed obsecro concede mihi servo tuo ut tollam onus duorum burdonum de terra non enim faciet ultra servus tuus holocaustum aut victimam diis alienis nisi Domino
And Naaman said: As thou wilt: but I beseech thee, grant to me, thy servant, to take from hence two mules' burden of earth: for thy servant will not henceforth offer holocaust, or victim, to other gods, but to the Lord.
||hoc autem solum est de quo depreceris Dominum pro servo tuo quando ingreditur dominus meus templum Remmon ut adoret et illo innitente super manum meam si adoravero in templo Remmon adorante me in eodem loco ut ignoscat mihi Dominus servo tuo pro hac re
But there is only this, for which thou shalt entreat the Lord for thy servant; when my master goeth into the temple of Remmon, to worship there, and he leaneth on my hand: if I bow down in the temple of Remmon, when he boweth down in the same place, that the Lord pardon me, thy servant, for this thing.
||qui dixit ei vade in pace abiit ergo ab eo electo terrae tempore
And he said to him: Go in peace. So he departed from him, in the spring time of the earth.
||dixitque Giezi puer viri Dei pepercit dominus meus Naaman Syro isti ut non acciperet ab eo quae adtulit vivit Dominus quia curram post eum et accipiam ab eo aliquid
But Giezi, the servant of the man of God, said: My master hath spared Naaman this Syrian, in not receiving of him that which he brought: as the Lord liveth, I will run after him, and take something of him.
||et secutus est Giezi post tergum Naaman quem cum vidisset ille currentem ad se desilivit de curru in occursum eius et ait rectene sunt omnia
And Giezi followed after Naaman: and when he saw him running after him, he leapt down from his chariot to meet him, and said: Is all well?
||et ille ait recte dominus meus misit me dicens modo venerunt ad me duo adulescentes de monte Ephraim ex filiis prophetarum da eis talentum argenti et vestes mutatorias duplices
And he said: Well: my master hath sent me to thee, saying: Just now there are come to me from mount Ephraim, two young men of the sons of the prophets: give them a talent of silver, and two changes of garments.
||dixitque Naaman melius est ut accipias duo talenta et coegit eum ligavitque duo talenta argenti in duobus saccis et duplicia vestimenta et inposuit duobus pueris suis qui et portaverunt coram eo
And Naaman said: It is better that thou take two talents. And he forced him, and bound two talents of silver in two bags, and two changes of garments, and laid them upon two of his servants, and they carried them before him.
||cumque venisset iam vesperi tulit de manu eorum et reposuit in domo dimisitque viros et abierunt
And when he was come, and now it was the evening, he took them from their hands, and laid them up in the house, and sent the men away, and they departed.
||ipse autem ingressus stetit coram domino suo et dixit Heliseus unde venis Giezi qui respondit non ivit servus tuus quoquam
But he went in, and stood before his master. And Eliseus said: Whence comest thou, Giezi? He answered: Thy servant went no whither.
||at ille nonne ait cor meum in praesenti erat quando reversus est homo de curru suo in occursum tui nunc igitur accepisti argentum et accepisti vestes ut emas oliveta et vineta et oves et boves et servos et ancillas
But he said: Was not my heart present, when the man turned back, from his chariot, to meet thee? So now thou hast received money, and received garments, to buy oliveyards and vineyards, and sheep, and oxen, and men-servants, and maid-servants.
||sed et lepra Naaman adherebit tibi et semini tuo in sempiternum et egressus est ab eo leprosus quasi nix
But the leprosy of Naaman, shall also stick to thee, and to thy seed for ever. And he went out from him a leper, as white as snow.
