4 T And, behold, Boaz came from Beth-lehem, and said unto the reapers, *The Lond be with you. And they answered him, The Lord bless thee. 5 Then said Boaz unto his servant that was set over the reapers, Whose damsel is this? 6 And the servant that was set over the reapers answered and said, It is the Moabitish damsel" that came back with Naomi out of the country of Moab: 7 And she said, I pray you, let me glean and gather after the reapers among the sheaves: so she came, and hath continued even from the morning until now, that she tarried a little in the house. 8 Then said Boaz unto Ruth, Hearest thou not, my daughter? Go not to glean in another field, neither go from hence, but abide here fast by my maidens: 9 Let thine eyes be on the field that they do reap, and go thou after them: have I not charged the young men that they shall not touch thee? and when thou art athirst, go unto the vessels, and drink of that which the young men have drawn. 10 Then she ‘fell on her face, and bowed herself to the ground, and said unto him, Why have I found grace in thine eyes, that thou shouldest take knowledge of me, seeing I am a stranger? 11 And Boaz answered and said unto her, It hath fully been shewed me, *all that thou hast done unto thy mother in law since the death of thine husband: and how thou hast left thy father and thy mother, and the land of o nativity, and art come unto a people which thou knewest not heretofore. 12 *The Load recompense thy work, and a full reward be given thee of the Lond God of Israel, 'under whose wings thou art come to trust. 13 Then she said, "Let me find favour in thy sight, my lord; for that thou hast comforted me, and for that thou hast spoken + friendly unto thine handmaid, "though I be not like unto one of thine handmaidens. 14 And Boaz said unto her, At mealtime come thou hither, and eat of the bread, and dip thy morsel in the vinegar. And she sat beside the reapers; and he reached her parched corn, and she did eat, and “was sufficed, and left. 15 And when she was risen up to gleam, Boaz commanded his young men, saying, Let her glean even among the sheaves, and freproach her not: 16 And let fall also some of the handfuls of purpose for her, and leave them, that she may glean them, and rebuke her not.

17 So, she gleaned in the field until chor even, and beat out that she had gleaned: so. and it was about an ephah of barley. 18 " And she took it up, and went into the city: and her mother in law saw what she had gleaned; and she brought forth, and gave to her "that she had re- a ver, 14. served after she was sufficed. 19 And her mother in law said unto her, Where hast, thou gleaned to day? and where wroughtest thou? blessed be he that did “take knowledge of thee. # And she shewed her mother in law with whom she had wrought, and said, The man's name with whom I wrought to day is Boaz. 20 And Naomi said unto her daughter in law, "Blessed be he of the Lord, who Rs. "hath not left off his kindness to the liv-io ing and to the dead. And Naomi said "". unto her, The man is near of kin untous, * | one of our next kinsmen. :* *** 21 And Ruth the Moabitess said, He to... said unto me also, Thou shalt keep fast :"... } my young men, until they have ended for.: my harvest. 22 And Naomi said unto Ruth her daughter in law, It is good, my daughter, that thou go out with his maidens, that they || meet thee not in any other field. 23 So she kept fast by the maidens of Boaz to glean unto the end of barley harvest and of wheat harvest; and dwelt with her mother in law.

CHAP. III. 1 By Naomi's instruction, 5 Ruth lieth at Boaz's feet. 8 Boaz acknowledgeth the right of a kinsman. 14. He sendeth her away with six measures of barley.
