Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Kings 5:27

_ _ leper as white as snow — (See on Leviticus 13:3). This heavy infliction was not too severe for the crime of Gehazi. For it was not the covetousness alone that was punished; but, at the same time, it was the ill use made of the prophet’s name to gain an object prompted by a mean covetousness, and the attempt to conceal it by lying [Keil].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Kings 5:20-27.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Kings 5:27

For ever — That is, for some generations; as that word is often used and as may be thought by comparing this with Exodus 20:55. (?) White — Which is the worst kind of leprosy, and noted by physicians to be incurable. Those who get money by any way displeasing to God, make a dear purchase. What was Gehazi profited by his two talents, when he lost his health, if not his soul, forever?

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

2 Kings 5:27
