1 H5281 And Naomi H4129 had a kinsman [H8675] H3045 [H8794] H376 of her husband's H1368 , a mighty H376 man H2428 of wealth H4940 , of the family H458 of Elimelech H8034 ; and his name H1162 was Boaz.
2 H7327 And Ruth H4125 the Moabitess H559 said [H8799] H5281 unto Naomi H3212 , Let me now go [H8799] H7704 to the field H3950 , and glean [H8762] H7641 ears of corn H310 after H5869 him in whose sight H4672 I shall find [H8799] H2580 grace H559 . And she said [H8799] H3212 unto her, Go [H8798] H1323 , my daughter.
3 H3212 And she went [H8799] H935 , and came [H8799] H3950 , and gleaned [H8762] H7704 in the field H310 after H7114 the reapers [H8802] H4745 : and her hap H7136 was to light [H8799] H2513 on a part H7704 of the field H1162 belonging unto Boaz H4940 , who was of the kindred H458 of Elimelech.
4 H1162 And, behold, Boaz H935 came [H8802] H1035 from Bethlehem H559 , and said [H8799] H7114 unto the reapers [H8802] H3068 , The LORD H559 be with you. And they answered [H8799] H3068 him, The LORD H1288 bless [H8762] thee.
5 H559 Then said [H8799] H1162 Boaz H5288 unto his servant H5324 that was set [H8737] H7114 over the reapers [H8802] H5291 , Whose damsel is this?
6 H5288 And the servant H5324 that was set [H8737] H7114 over the reapers [H8802] H6030 answered [H8799] H559 and said [H8799] H4125 , It is the Moabitish H5291 damsel H7725 that came back [H8804] H5281 with Naomi H7704 out of the country H4124 of Moab:
7 H559 And she said [H8799] H3950 , I pray you, let me glean [H8762] H622 and gather [H8804] H310 after H7114 the reapers [H8802] H6016 among the sheaves H935 : so she came [H8799] H5975 , and hath continued [H8799] H227 even H1242 from the morning H3427 until now, that she tarried [H8800] H4592 a little H1004 in the house.
8 H559 Then said [H8799] H1162 Boaz H7327 unto Ruth H8085 , Hearest [H8804] H1323 thou not, my daughter H3212 ? Go [H8799] H3950 not to glean [H8800] H312 in another H7704 field H5674 , neither go [H8799] H1692 from hence, but abide [H8799] H5291 here fast by my maidens:
9 H5869 Let thine eyes H7704 be on the field H7114 that they do reap [H8799] H1980 , and go [H8804] H310 thou after H6680 them: have I not charged [H8765] H5288 the young men H5060 that they shall not touch [H8800] H6770 thee? and when thou art athirst [H8804] H1980 , go [H8804] H3627 unto the vessels H8354 , and drink [H8804] H5288 of that which the young men H7579 have drawn [H8799] .
10 H5307 Then she fell [H8799] H6440 on her face H7812 , and bowed [H8691] H776 herself to the ground H559 , and said [H8799] H4672 unto him, Why have I found [H8804] H2580 grace H5869 in thine eyes H5234 , that thou shouldest take knowledge [H8687] H5237 of me, seeing I am a stranger?
11 H1162 And Boaz H6030 answered [H8799] H559 and said [H8799] H5046 unto her, It hath fully [H8715] H5046 been shewed [H8717] H6213 me, all that thou hast done [H8804] H2545 unto thy mother in law H310 since H4194 the death H376 of thine husband H5800 : and how thou hast left [H8799] H1 thy father H517 and thy mother H776 , and the land H4138 of thy nativity H3212 , and art come [H8799] H5971 unto a people H3045 which thou knewest [H8804] H8543 not heretofore H8032 .
12 H3068 The LORD H7999 recompense [H8762] H6467 thy work H8003 , and a full H4909 reward H3068 be given thee of the LORD H430 God H3478 of Israel H3671 , under whose wings H935 thou art come [H8804] H2620 to trust [H8800] .
13 H559 Then she said [H8799] H4672 , Let me find [H8799] H2580 favour H5869 in thy sight H113 , my lord H5162 ; for that thou hast comforted [H8765] H1696 me, and for that thou hast spoken [H8765] H3820 friendly H8198 unto thine handmaid H259 , though I be not like unto one H8198 of thine handmaidens.
14 H1162 And Boaz H559 said [H8799] H6256 unto her, At mealtime H400 H5066 come [H8798] H1988 thou hither H398 , and eat [H8804] H3899 of the bread H2881 , and dip [H8804] H6595 thy morsel H2558 in the vinegar H3427 . And she sat [H8799] H6654 beside H7114 the reapers [H8802] H6642 : and he reached [H8799] H7039 her parched H398 corn, and she did eat [H8799] H7646 , and was sufficed [H8799] H3498 , and left [H8686] .
15 H6965 And when she was risen up [H8799] H3950 to glean [H8763] H1162 , Boaz H6680 commanded [H8762] H5288 his young men H559 , saying [H8800] H3950 , Let her glean [H8762] H6016 even among the sheaves H3637 , and reproach [H8686] her not:
16 H7997 And let fall [H8799] H6653 also some of the handfuls H7997 of purpose [H8800] H5800 for her, and leave [H8804] H3950 them, that she may glean [H8765] H1605 them, and rebuke [H8799] her not.
17 H3950 So she gleaned [H8762] H7704 in the field H6153 until even H2251 , and beat out [H8799] H3950 that she had gleaned [H8765] H374 : and it was about an ephah H8184 of barley.
18 H5375 And she took it up [H8799] H935 , and went [H8799] H5892 into the city H2545 : and her mother in law H7200 saw [H8799] H3950 what she had gleaned [H8765] H3318 : and she brought forth [H8686] H5414 , and gave [H8799] H3498 to her that she had reserved [H8689] H7648 after she was sufficed.
19 H2545 And her mother in law H559 said [H8799] H3950 unto her, Where hast thou gleaned [H8765] H3117 to day H375 ? and where H6213 wroughtest [H8804] H1288 thou? blessed [H8803] H5234 be he that did take knowledge [H8688] H5046 of thee. And she shewed [H8686] H2545 her mother in law H6213 with whom she had wrought [H8804] H559 , and said [H8799] H376 , The man's H8034 name H6213 with whom I wrought [H8804] H3117 to day H1162 is Boaz.
20 H5281 And Naomi H559 said [H8799] H3618 unto her daughter in law H1288 , Blessed [H8803] H3068 be he of the LORD H5800 , who hath not left off [H8804] H2617 his kindness H2416 to the living H4191 and to the dead [H8801] H5281 . And Naomi H559 said [H8799] H376 unto her, The man H7138 is near of kin H1350 unto us, one of our next kinsmen [H8802] .
21 H7327 And Ruth H4125 the Moabitess H559 said [H8799] H559 , He said [H8804] H1692 unto me also, Thou shalt keep fast [H8799] H5288 by my young men H3615 , until they have ended [H8765] H7105 all my harvest.
22 H5281 And Naomi H559 said [H8799] H7327 unto Ruth H3618 her daughter in law H2896 , It is good H1323 , my daughter H3318 , that thou go out [H8799] H5291 with his maidens H6293 , that they meet [H8799] H312 thee not in any other H7704 field.
