Haftarah (Shabbat Evening Portion)

– The story of the four lepers and the Syrians

2Ki 7:3 And there were four leprous men at the entering in of the gate: and they said one to
another, Why sit we here until we die?
2Ki 7:4 If we say, We will enter into the city, then the famine is in the city, and we shall die
there: and if we sit still here, we die also. Now therefore come, and let us fall unto the host of
the Syrians: if they save us alive, we shall live; and if they kill us, we shall but die.
2Ki 7:5 And they rose up in the twilight, to go unto the camp of the Syrians: and when they
were come to the uttermost part of the camp of Syria, behold, there was no man there.
2Ki 7:6 For YHWH had made the host of the Syrians to hear a noise of chariots, and a noise of
horses, even the noise of a great host: and they said one to another, Lo, the king of Yisra’el
has hired against us the kings of the Chitti, and the kings of the Egyptians, to come upon us.
2Ki 7:7 Wherefore they arose and fled in the twilight, and left their tents, and their horses, and
their donkeys, even the camp as it was, and fled for their life.
2Ki 7:8 And when these lepers came to the uttermost part of the camp, they went into one tent,
and did eat and drink, and carried from there silver, and gold, and raiment, and went and
hid it; and came again, and entered into another tent, and carried from there also, and went
and hid it.
2Ki 7:9 Then they said one to another, We do not well: this day is a day of good tidings, and we
hold our peace: if we tarry till the morning light, some mischief will come upon us: now
therefore come, that we may go and tell the king’s household.
2Ki 7:10 So they came and called unto the porter of the city: and they told them, saying, We
came to the camp of the Syrians, and, behold, there was no man there, neither voice of man,
but horses tied, and asses tied, and the tents as they were.
2Ki 7:11 And he called the porters; and they told it to the king’s house within.
2Ki 7:12 And the king arose in the night, and said unto his servants, I will now show you what
the Syrians have done to us. They know that we be hungry; therefore are they gone out of the
camp to hide themselves in the field, saying, When they come out of the city, we shall catch
them alive, and get into the city.
2Ki 7:13 And one of his servants answered and said, Let some take, I pray you, five of the horses
that remain, which are left in the city, (behold, they are as all the multitude of Yisra’el that
are left in it: behold, I say, they are even as all the multitude of the Yisra’elim that are
consumed:) and let us send and see.
2Ki 7:14 They took therefore two chariot horses; and the king sent after the host of the Syrians,
saying, Go and see.
2Ki 7:15 And they went after them unto Yarden: and, lo, all the way was full of garments and
vessels, which the Syrians had cast away in their haste. And the messengers returned, and
told the king.
2Ki 7:16 And the people went out, and spoiled the tents of the Syrians. So a measure of fine
flour was sold for a shekel, and two measures of barley for a shekel, according to the word of
YHWH.
2Ki 7:17 And the king appointed the lord on whose hand he leaned to have the charge of the
gate: and the people trode upon him in the gate, and he died, as the man of Elohim had said,
who spoke when the king came down to him.
2Ki 7:18 And it came to pass as the man of Elohim had spoken to the king, saying, Two
measures of barley for a shekel, and a measure of fine flour for a shekel, shall be to morrow
about this time in the gate of Shomron:
2Ki 7:19 And that lord answered the man of Elohim, and said, Now, behold, if YHWH should
make windows in heaven, might such a thing be? And he said, Behold, you shall see it with
your eyes, but shall not eat thereof.
2Ki 7:20 And so it fell out unto him: for the people trode upon him in the gate, and he died.
