  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Gehazi 
  valley  of  vision,  Elisha's  trusted  servant  (2  Kings  4:31;  5:25; 
  8:4,  5).  He  appears  in  connection  with  the  history  of  the 
  Shunammite  (2  Kings  4:14,  31)  and  of  Naaman  the  Syrian.  On  this 
  latter  occasion  he  was  guilty  of  duplicity  and  dishonesty  of 
  conduct,  causing  Elisha  to  denounce  his  crime  with  righteous 
  sternness,  and  pass  on  him  the  terrible  doom  that  the  leprosy  of 
  Naaman  would  cleave  to  him  and  his  for  ever  (5:20-27). 
 
  He  afterwards  appeared  before  king  Joram,  to  whom  he  recounted 
  the  great  deeds  of  his  master  (2  Kings  8:1-6).
