View In My Bible
9 Then Boaz said to the elders and all the people, "You are witnesses today that I have bought from the hand of Naomi all that belonged to Elimelech and all that belonged to Chilion and Mahlon. 10 "Moreover, I have acquired Ruth the Moabitess, the widow of Mahlon, to be my wife in order to raise up the name of the deceased on his inheritance, so 1that the name of the deceased will not be cut off from his brothers or from the acourt of his birth place; you are witnesses today." 11 All the people who were in the bcourt, and the elders, said, "We are witnesses. May the LORD make the woman who is coming into your home 2like Rachel and Leah, both of whom built the house of Israel; and may you achieve cwealth in Ephrathah and dbecome famous in Bethlehem. 12 "Moreover, may your house be like the house of 3Perez whom Tamar bore to Judah, through the eoffspring which the LORD will give you by this young woman."
