3:1 Then Naomi [H5281] her mother in law [H2545] said [H559] unto her, My daughter [H1323] , shall I not seek [H1245] rest [H4494] for thee, that it may be well [H3190] with thee?

3:2 And now [is] not Boaz [H1162] of our kindred [H4130] , with whose maidens [H5291] thou wast? Behold, he winnoweth [H2219] barley [H8184] to night [H3915] in the threshingfloor [H1637] .

3:3 Wash [H7364] thyself therefore, and anoint [H5480] thee, and put [H7760] thy raiment [H8071] upon thee, and get thee down [H3381] to the floor [H1637] : [but] make not thyself known [H3045] unto the man [H376] , until he shall have done [H3615] eating [H398] and drinking [H8354] .

3:4 And it shall be, when he lieth down [H7901] , that thou shalt mark [H3045] the place [H4725] where he shall lie [H7901] , and thou shalt go in [H935] , and uncover [H1540] his feet [H4772] , and lay thee down [H7901] ; and he will tell [H5046] thee what thou shalt do [H6213] .(uncover: or, lift up the clothes that are on)

3:5 And she said [H559] unto her, All that thou sayest [H559] unto me I will do [H6213] .

3:6 And she went down [H3381] unto the floor [H1637] , and did [H6213] according to all that her mother in law [H2545] bade [H6680] her.

3:7 And when Boaz [H1162] had eaten [H398] and drunk [H8354] , and his heart [H3820] was merry [H3190] , he went [H935] to lie down [H7901] at the end [H7097] of the heap of corn [H6194] : and she came [H935] softly [H3909] , and uncovered [H1540] his feet [H4772] , and laid her down [H7901] .

3:8 And it came to pass at midnight [H2677] [H3915] , that the man [H376] was afraid [H2729] , and turned [H3943] himself: and, behold, a woman [H802] lay [H7901] at his feet [H4772] .(turned: or, took hold on)

3:9 And he said [H559] , Who [art] thou? And she answered [H559] , I [am] Ruth [H7327] thine handmaid [H519] : spread [H6566] therefore thy skirt [H3671] over thine handmaid [H519] ; for thou [art] a near kinsman [H1350] .(a near: or, one that hath right to redeem)

3:10 And he said [H559] , Blessed [H1288] [be] thou of the LORD [H3068] , my daughter [H1323] : [for] thou hast shewed [H3190] more kindness [H2617] in the latter end [H314] than at the beginning [H7223] , inasmuch as thou followedst [H3212] [H310] not [H1115] young men [H970] , whether poor [H1800] or rich [H6223] .

3:11 And now, my daughter [H1323] , fear [H3372] not; I will do [H6213] to thee all that thou requirest [H559] : for all the city [H8179] of my people [H5971] doth know [H3045] that thou [art] a virtuous [H2428] woman [H802] .(city: Heb. gate)

3:12 And now it is true [H551] that I [am thy] near kinsman [H1350] : howbeit there is [H3426] a kinsman [H1350] nearer [H7138] than I.

3:13 Tarry [H3885] this night [H3915] , and it shall be in the morning [H1242] , [that] if he will perform unto thee the part of a kinsman [H1350] , well [H2896] ; let him do the kinsman's part [H1350] : but if he will [H2654] not do the part of a kinsman [H1350] to thee, then will I do the part of a kinsman [H1350] to thee, [as] the LORD [H3068] liveth [H2416] : lie down [H7901] until the morning [H1242] .

3:14 And she lay [H7901] at his feet [H4772] until the morning [H1242] : and she rose up [H6965] before [H2958] one [H376] could know [H5234] another [H7453] . And he said [H559] , Let it not be known [H3045] that a woman [H802] came [H935] into the floor [H1637] .

3:15 Also he said [H559] , Bring [H3051] the vail [H4304] that [thou hast] upon thee, and hold [H270] it. And when she held [H270] it, he measured [H4058] six [H8337] [measures] of barley [H8184] , and laid [H7896] [it] on her: and she went [H935] into the city [H5892] .(vail: or, sheet, or, apron)

3:16 And when she came [H935] to her mother in law [H2545] , she said [H559] , Who [art] thou, my daughter [H1323] ? And she told [H5046] her all that the man [H376] had done [H6213] to her.

3:17 And she said [H559] , These six [H8337] [measures] of barley [H8184] gave [H5414] he me; for he said [H559] to me, Go [H935] not empty [H7387] unto thy mother in law [H2545] .

3:18 Then said [H559] she, Sit still [H3427] , my daughter [H1323] , until thou know [H3045] how the matter [H1697] will fall [H5307] : for the man [H376] will not be in rest [H8252] , until [H518] he have finished [H3615] the thing [H1697] this day [H3117] .
