Naaman lived in Syria. He was captain of the King's army. Naaman had leprosy, a very bad disease of the skin. Naaman's wife had a servant, a captive girl from Israel. The servant told Naaman of a prophet in Israel who could heal leprosy. The King of Syria wrote a letter to the King of Israel on Naaman's behalf asking that Naaman be healed. Naaman went to Israel and visited Elisha's house. Elisha told Naaman to go dip in the Jordan River seven times to be healed. Naaman was angry and did not want to dip in the nasty Jordan River, but his servants convinced him to obey Elisha. When he obeyed, he was healed. Naaman then believed that the God of Israel was the true God to be worshipped.
"All that the LORD has said we will do, and be obedient." Exodus 24:7b (NKJV)
