And she said unto her
Having the highest opinion of her piety and prudence, and being confident she would never advise her to what was contrary to true religion and virtue:
all that thou sayest unto me I will do;
observe every instruction and direction she gave her, and attend strictly to every circumstance pointed out to her, as she did; the word for "unto me" is one of those instances, the Masora observes, is not written but read; the letters of the word are not in the text, only the vowel points, the reason of which cannot well be said; what the Midrash F17 gives can never satisfy.
F17 Midrash Ruth, ut supra. (fol. 33. 3.)
