Jesse Tree of Holy Women ~ Slave to Naaman's Wife

"Drop down dew yet heavens above

and let the clouds rain the just one."
Isaiah 45: 8

"If only my lord were with the prophet who is in Samaria! He would cure him of his leprosy."  2 Kings 5: 3

The young Israelite girl who served Naaman's wife had been captured by Naaman who was commander of the Syrian army in the days of the prophet Elisha. She told her mistress that a prophet in Israel could cure her husband of his leprosy, and he did. Nothing more is known of her (Woman Word by Miriam Therese Winter).
