Old Testament #6

I was a commander of the army of the sovereign of Aram and I was a great man in the eyes of my master, and highly respected because by me Yahuwah had given deliverance to Aram. I was a brave man, but I was leprous.

My wife, who was from the land of Yisra’el told us of the prophet who is in Shomeron, that he would recover me from my leprosy. I went and reported this to my master. And the sovereign of Aram told me to go, and he gave me a letter to the sovereign of Yisra’el. The letter said, “See, I have sent my servant to you, so that you shall recover him of his leprosy.” When the sovereign of Yisra’el read the letter, he tore his garments and said, “Am I Elohim, to kill and keep alive, that this man sends a man to me to recover him of his leprosy?”

Elisha, a man of Elohim heard that the sovereign of Yisra’el tore his garments. Elisha asked for me to be brought to him to that I know that there is a prophet in Yisra’el.

So I came to the house of Elisha with my horses and chariot. Elisha sent a messenger to me saying that I must wash seven times in the Yarden, that my flesh might be restored and be clean.

This made me so angry when I heard the messenger of Elisha tell me this. So I went away from there. To me, it would have made more sense for him to come out, wave his hand over me and the leprosy be healed. I mean c’mon, are not the Abana and the Pharpar, the rivers of Damscus better than the waters of Yisra’el. My servant came to me and convinced me to go to do as the prophet Elisha instructed.

So, I went down to the Yarden, dipped in the waters seven times and my flesh was restored as of a little child and was clean.

Who am I?
