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