One day Naomi said to Ruth, "My daughter, it's time that I found a permanent home for you, so that you will be provided for.
Boaz is a close relative of ours, and he's been very kind by letting you gather grain with his workers. Tonight he will be winnowing barley at the threshing floor.
Now do as I tell you -- take a bath and put on perfume and dress in your nicest clothes. Then go to the threshing floor, but don't let Boaz see you until he has finished his meal.
Be sure to notice where he lies down; then go and uncover his feet and lie down there. He will tell you what to do."
"I will do everything you say," Ruth replied.
