Bible Commentary for 2 Kings 5:24

Wesley's Notes for 2 Kings 5:24


5:23 Urged him - Who at first refused it upon a pretence of modesty.

5:26 Olive yards, &c. - Which Gehazi intended to purchase with this money: and therefore the prophet names them, to inform him, that he exactly knew, not only his outward actions, but even his most secret intentions. What a folly is it, to presume upon sin in hopes of secrecy? When thou goest aside into any bye - path, doth not thy own conscience go with thee? Nay, doth not the eye of God go with thee? What then avails the absence of human witnesses?
