Ruth 3 ©
By Naomi's instruction, Ruth layeth herself in the night at the feet of Boaz; who acknowledgeth the duty of a kinsman, but telleth her of one who had a prior claim. He sendeth her home in the morning with six measures of barley.
And it shall be, when he lieth down, that thou shalt mark the place where he shall lie, and thou shalt go in, and 1uncover his feet, and lay thee down; and he will tell thee what thou shalt do.
¶And she went down unto the floor, and did according to all that her mother in law *bade her.
¶And it came to pass at midnight, that the man was afraid, and 2turned himself: and, behold, a woman lay at his feet.
Tarry this night, and it shall be oin the morning, that pif he will perform 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, qas the LORD liveth: lie down until the morning.
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.
And she said, These six measures of barley gave he me; for he said to me, Go not empty unto thy mother in law.
