When this letter comes to you, note that I have sent you my servant Naaman for you to cure him of his skin disease.

But his servants approached and said to him, “My father, if the prophet had told you to do some great thing, would you not have done it? How much more should you do it when he only tells you, ‘Wash and be clean’? ”
