Chapter 3

1

And Naomi her mother-in-law saith to her, `My daughter, do not I seek for thee rest, that it may be well with thee?

2

and now, is not Boaz of our acquaintance, with whose young women thou hast been? lo, he is winnowing the threshing-floor of barley to-night,

3

and thou hast bathed, and anointed thyself, and put thy garments upon thee, and gone down to the threshing-floor; let not thyself be known to the man till he complete to eat and to drink;

4

and it cometh to pass when he lieth down, that thou hast known the place where he lieth down, and hast gone in, and uncovered his feet, and lain down, -- and he doth declare to thee that which thou dost do.`

5

And she saith unto her, `All that thou sayest -- I do.`

6

And she goeth down to the threshing-floor, and doth according to all that her mother-in-law commanded her

7

And Boaz eateth and drinketh, and his heart is glad; and he goeth in to lie down at the end of the heap; and she cometh in gently, and uncovereth his feet, and lieth down.

8

And it cometh to pass, at the middle of the night, that the man trembleth, and turneth himself, and lo, a woman is lying at his feet.

9

And he saith, `Who art thou?` and she saith, `I am Ruth thy handmaid, and thou hast spread thy skirt over thy handmaid, for thou art a redeemer.`

10

And he saith, `Blessed art thou of Jehovah, my daughter; thou hast dealt more kindly at the latter end than at the beginning -- not to go after the young men, either poor or rich.

11

And now, my daughter, fear not, all that thou sayest I do to thee, for all the gate of my people doth know that thou art a virtuous woman.

12

And now, surely, true, that I am a redeemer, but also there is a redeemer nearer than I.

13

Lodge to night, and it hath been in the morning, if he doth redeem thee, well: he redeemeth; and if he delight not to redeem thee, then I have redeemed thee -- I; Jehovah liveth! lie down till the morning.`

14

And she lieth down at his feet till the morning, and riseth before one doth discern another; and he saith, `Let it not be known that the woman hath come into the floor.`

15

And he saith, `Give the covering which is on thee, and keep hold on it;` and she keepeth hold on it, and he measureth six measures of barley, and layeth it on her; and he goeth into the city.

16

And she cometh in unto her mother-in-law, and she saith, `Who art thou, my daughter?` and she declareth to her all that the man hath done to her.

17

And she saith, `These six measures of barley he hath given to me, for he said, Thou dost not go in empty unto thy mother-in-law.`

18

And she saith, `Sit still, my daughter, till thou dost know how the matter falleth, for the man doth not rest except he hath completed the matter to-day.`
