This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

the king: As it appears not likely that the king would hold conversation with a leprous man; or, that, knowing Gehazi had been dismissed with the highest disgrace from the prophet's service, he would talk with him concerning his late master; some have supposed that this happened before the cleansing of Naaman. But it agrees better with the chronology to consider it as having taken place after that event; the king, probably, having an insatiable curiosity to know the private history of a man who had done such astonishing things. As to the circumstances of Gehazi's disease, he might overlook that, and converse with him, keeping at a reasonable distance, as nothing but actual contact could defile.

Gehazi: 2Ki 5:20-27, 2Ki 7:3, 2Ki 7:10

Tell: Mat 2:8; Luk 9:9, Luk 23:8; Joh 9:27; Act 24:24

all the great: 2Ki 2:14, 2Ki 2:20-22, 2Ki 2:24, 2Ki 3:14-16, 2Ki 4:3-6, 2Ki 4:16-17, 2Ki 5:14, 2Ki 5:27, 2Ki 6:6, 2Ki 6:9-12, 2Ki 6:17-20, 2Ki 6:32; 2Ki 7:1, 2Ki 7:16-20
