John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Kings 5:26

Olive yards, &c. — Which Gehazi intended to purchase with this money: and therefore the prophet names them, to inform him, that he exactly knew, not only his outward actions, but even his most secret intentions. What a folly is it, to presume upon sin in hopes of secrecy? When thou goest aside into any bye — path, doth not thy own conscience go with thee? Nay, doth not the eye of God go with thee? What then avails the absence of human witnesses?

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

2 Kings 5:26

And he said unto him, (n) Went not mine heart [with thee], when the man turned again from his chariot to meet thee? [Is it] a time to receive money, and to receive garments, and (o) oliveyards, and vineyards, and sheep, and oxen, and menservants, and maidservants?

(n) Was I not present with you in spirit?

(o) That is, money to buy possessions with: meaning that it is detestable in the servants of God to have covetous minds.
