Naaman was a great soldier, but he had a skin disease called leprosy.
A young girl from Israel who was a slave, served Naaman's wife. She told about a prophet who could cure his leprosy.
Naaman's king sent a letter to the king of Israel asking him to cure Naaman. The king of Israel was upset because he knew he had no such power.
Elisha, a man of God, asked to see Naaman. He told Naaman to wash seven times in the Jordan River. Naaman was angry because he did not expect to be cured this way. He thought Elisha would wave his hand over him and cure him. He also thought the rivers in his country would be better than the Jordan River. But he decided to obey. He dipped one, two, three, four, five, six, seven times. When he obeyed what had been told him, his leprosy was gone.
He was so happy! He said, "Now I know the God of Israel is the only God."
