1 Ruth visits Boaz
1 Then Naomi her mother in law said unto her, My daughter, 1 Cor. 7:36;1 Tim. 5:8shall I not seek ch. 1:9rest for thee, that it may be well with thee?
2 And now is not Boaz of our kindred, ch. 2:8with whose maidens thou wast? Behold, he winnoweth barley to night in the threshingfloor.
3 Wash thyself therefore, 2 Sam. 14:2and anoint thee, and put thy raiment upon thee, and get thee down to the floor: but make not thyself known unto the man, until he shall have done eating and drinking.
5 And she said unto her, All that thou sayest unto me I will do.
6 And she went down unto the floor, and did according to all that her mother in law bade her.
7 And when Boaz had eaten and drunk, and Judg. 19:6,9,22;2 Sam. 13:28;Esth. 1:10his heart was merry, he went to lie down at the end of the heap of corn: and she came softly, and uncovered his feet, and laid her down.
10 And he said, ch. 2:20Blessed be thou of the Lord, my daughter: for thou hast shewed more kindness in the latter end than ch. 1:8at the beginning, inasmuch as thou followedst not young men, whether poor or rich.
12 And now it is true that I am thy ver. 9near kinsman: howbeit ch. 4:1there is a kinsman nearer than I.
13 Tarry this night, and it shall be in the morning, that if he will Deut. 25:5;ch. 4:5;Mat. 22:24perform unto thee the part of a kinsman, well; let him do the kinsman's part: but if he will not do the part of a kinsman to thee, then will I do the part of a kinsman to thee, Judg. 8:19;Jer. 4:2as the Lord liveth: lie down until the morning.
14 And she lay at his feet until the morning: and she rose up before one could know another. And he said, Rom. 12:17;& 14:16;1 Cor. 10:32;2 Cor. 8:21;1 Thes. 5:22Let it not be known that a woman came into the floor.
16 And when she came to her mother in law, she said, Who art thou, my daughter? And she told her all that the man had done to her.
17 And she said, These six measures of barley gave he me; for he said to me, Go not empty unto thy mother in law.
18 Then said she, Ps. 37:3,5Sit still, my daughter, until thou know how the matter will fall: for the man will not be in rest, until he have finished the thing this day.
