But Ruth replied, "Don't urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God.

15. Ruth 2:23

19. Ruth 3:7
When Boaz had finished eating and drinking and was in good spirits, he went over to lie down at the far end of the grain pile. Ruth approached quietly, uncovered his feet and lay down.

"I am your servant Ruth," she said. "Spread the corner of your garment over me, since you are a kinsman-redeemer."
