1 Now it came to pass in the days when the judges ruled , that there was a famine in the land. And a certain man of Bethlehemjudah went to sojourn in the country of Moab, he, and his wife, and his two sons. 2 And the name of the man was Elimelech, and the name of his wife Naomi, and the name of his two sons Mahlon and Chilion, Ephrathites of Bethlehemjudah . And they came into the country of Moab, and continued there. 6 Then she arose with her daughters in law, that she might return from the country of Moab: for she had heard in the country of Moab how that the LORD had visited his people in giving them bread. 22 So Naomi returned , and Ruth the Moabitess, her daughter in law, with her, which returned out of the country of Moab: and they came to Bethlehem in the beginning of barley harvest. 2 And Ruth the Moabitess said unto Naomi, Let me now go to the field, and glean ears of corn after him in whose sight I shall find grace. And she said unto her, Go , my daughter. 3 And she went , and came , and gleaned in the field after the reapers : and her hap was to light on a part of the field belonging unto Boaz, who was of the kindred of Elimelech. 6 And the servant that was set over the reapers answered and said , It is the Moabitish damsel that came back with Naomi out of the country of Moab: 8 Then said Boaz unto Ruth, Hearest thou not, my daughter? Go not to glean in another field, neither go from hence, but abide here fast by my maidens: 9 Let thine eyes be on the field that they do reap , and go thou after them: have I not charged the young men that they shall not touch thee? and when thou art athirst , go unto the vessels, and drink of that which the young men have drawn . 17 So she gleaned in the field until even, and beat out that she had gleaned : and it was about an ephah of barley. 3 And he said unto the kinsman , Naomi, that is come again out of the country of Moab, selleth a parcel of land, which was our brother Elimelech's: 5 Then said Boaz, What day thou buyest the field of the hand of Naomi, thou must buy it also of Ruth the Moabitess, the wife of the dead , to raise up the name of the dead upon his inheritance.
