      And there were four lepers at the entrance of the gate: and they said one to another: what mean we staying here till we die? If we shall say let us enter the city and there is famine in the city we shall die there: and if we will stay here, we shall also die: so now ye go and let us flee across to the realm of Aram. If they revive us, we shall live and if they kill us, we shall die. So they arose in the evening to go to the realm of Aram: and they came to the edge of the realm of Aram, and behold, they found no man there. And the Lord made the realm of Aram to hear the sound of chariots and sound of horses and sound of a great army: and they said one to another, behold the king of Israel hath hired against us the kings of the Hittites and the kings of Egypt to come upon us.
