Naaman was cleansed from his leprosy when he dipped in the muddy river Jordan 7 times. He first rebelled against Elisha's advice to do so, like so many who will not believe the gospel think any time of belief will cleanse you sin and take you to heaven. Well it didn't. He decided to do what the prophet said and was cleansed. The gospel parallels in this story are profound.

Solomon's compromise with his faith was through marrying pagan wives and allowing them to bring their false gods and worship of them into Israel.
