So she gleaned in the field until even, and beat out that she had gleaned : and it was about an ephah of barley.18
And she took it up , and went into the city: and her mother in lawsaw what she had gleaned : and she brought forth , and gave to her that she had reserved after she was sufficed.19
And her mother in lawsaid unto her, Where hast thou gleaned to day? and wherewroughtest 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'sname with whom I wrought to day is Boaz.20
And Naomisaid unto her daughter in law,Blessed be he of the LORD, who hath not left off his kindness to the living and to the dead . And Naomisaid unto her, The man is near of kin unto us, one of our next kinsmen .
And Ruth the Moabitesssaid , He said unto me also, Thou shalt keep fast by my young men, until they have ended all my harvest.22
And Naomisaid unto Ruth her daughter in law, It is good, my daughter, that thou go out with his maidens, that they meeta thee not in any otherfield.23
So she kept fast by the maidens of Boaz to glean unto the end of barleyharvest and of wheatharvest; and dwelt with her mother in law.
