John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Kings 5:16

He refused — Not that he thought it unlawful to receive presents, which he did receive from others, but because of the special circumstances of the case; this being much for the honour of God that the Syrians should see the generous piety, and kindness of his ministers and servants, and how much they despised all that worldly wealth and glory, which the prophets of the Gentiles so greedily sought after.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

2 Kings 5:16

But he said, [As] the LORD liveth, before whom I stand, I will receive none. And he urged him to take [it]; (h) but he refused.

(h) So the Lord commands that they that receive freely, should also give freely.
