1 H5281 Then Naomi H2545 her mother in law H559 [H8799] said H1323 to her, My daughter, H1245 [H8762] shall I not seek H4494 rest H3190 [H8799] for thee, that it may be well with thee?
2 H1162 And now is not Boaz H4130 of our kindred, H5291 with whose damsels H2219 [H8802] thou wast? Behold, he winnoweth H8184 barley H3915 to night H1637 in the threshingfloor.
3 H7364 [H8804] Wash H5480 [H8804] thyself therefore, and anoint H7760 [H8804] thee, and put H8071 thy raiment H3381 [H8804] upon thee, and go down H1637 to the floor: H3045 [H8735] but make not thyself known H376 to the man, H3615 [H8763] until he shall have finished H398 [H8800] eating H8354 [H8800] and drinking.
4 H7901 [H8800] And it shall be, when he lieth down, H3045 [H8804] that thou shalt mark H4725 the place H7901 [H8799] where he shall lie, H935 [H8804] and thou shalt go in, H1540 [H8765] and uncover H4772 his feet, H7901 [H8804] and lay thee down; H5046 [H8686] and he will tell H6213 [H8799] thee what thou shalt do.
5 H559 [H8799] And she said H559 [H8799] to her, All that thou sayest H6213 [H8799] to me I will do.
6 H3381 [H8799] And she went down H1637 to the floor, H6213 [H8799] and did H2545 according to all that her mother in law H6680 [H8765] bade her.
7 H1162 And when Boaz H398 [H8799] had eaten H8354 [H8799] and drunk, H3820 and his heart H3190 [H8799] was merry, H935 [H8799] he went H7901 [H8800] to lie down H7097 at the end H6194 of the heap of grain: H935 [H8799] and she came H3909 softly, H1540 [H8762] and uncovered H4772 his feet, H7901 [H8799] and laid herself down.
8 H2677 H3915 And it came to pass at midnight, H376 that the man H2729 [H8799] was afraid, H3943 [H8735] and turned H802 himself: and, behold, a woman H7901 [H8802] lay H4772 at his feet.
9 H559 [H8799] And he said, H559 [H8799] Who art thou? And she answered, H7327 I am Ruth H519 thy handmaid: H6566 [H8804] spread H3671 therefore thy skirt H519 over thy handmaid; H1350 [H8802] for thou art a near kinsman.
10 H559 [H8799] And he said, H1288 [H8803] Blessed H3068 be thou of the LORD, H1323 my daughter: H3190 [H8689] for thou hast shown H2617 more mercy H314 in the latter end H7223 than at the beginning, H3212 H310 H1115 [H8800] inasmuch as thou didst not follow H970 young men, H1800 whether poor H6223 or rich.
11 H1323 And now, my daughter, H3372 [H8799] fear H6213 [H8799] not; I will do H559 [H8799] to thee all that thou requirest: H8179 for all the city H5971 of my people H3045 [H8802] doth know H2428 that thou art a virtuous H802 woman.
12 H551 And now it is true H1350 [H8802] that I am thy near kinsman: H3426 yet there is H1350 [H8802] a kinsman H7138 nearer than I.
13 H3885 [H8798] Tarry H3915 this night, H1242 and it shall be in the morning, H1350 [H8799] that if he will perform to thee the part of a kinsman, H2896 well; H1350 [H8799] let him do the kinsman's part: H2654 [H8799] but if he will H1350 [H8800] not do the part of a kinsman H1350 [H8804] to thee, then will I do the part of a kinsman H3068 to thee, as the LORD H2416 liveth: H7901 [H8798] lie down H1242 until the morning.
14 H7901 [H8799] And she lay H4772 at his feet H1242 until the morning: H6965 [H8799] and she rose H2958 before H376 one H5234 [H8686] could know H7453 another. H559 [H8799] And he said, H3045 [H8735] Let it not be known H802 that a woman H935 [H8804] came H1637 to the floor.
15 H559 [H8799] Also he said, H3051 [H8798] Bring H4304 the veil H270 [H8798] that thou hast upon thee, and hold H270 [H8799] it. And when she held H4058 [H8799] it, he measured H8337 six H8184 measures of barley, H7896 [H8799] and laid H935 [H8799] it on her: and she went H5892 into the city.
16 H935 [H8799] And when she came H2545 to her mother in law, H559 [H8799] she said, H1323 Who art thou, my daughter? H5046 [H8686] And she told H376 her all that the man H6213 [H8804] had done to her.
17 H559 [H8799] And she said, H8337 These six H8184 measures of barley H5414 [H8804] he gave H559 [H8804] me; for he said H935 [H8799] to me, Go H7387 not empty H2545 to thy mother in law.
