    From mount Ephraim - Bethel and Gilgal 2 Kings 2:1, at both of which there were "schools of the prophets," were situated on Mount Ephraim.

    A talent of silver - A large demand in respect of the pretended occasion; but small compared with the amount which Naaman had pressed on the prophet 2 Kings 5:4. Gehazi had to balance between his own avarice, on the one hand, and the fear of raising suspicion on the other.
