Ruth 1:11-13; Ruth 2:8; Ruth 2:22; Ruth 3:1; Ruth 3:10-11; Ruth 3:16; Ruth 3:18
And Naomi said , Turn again , my daughters: why will ye go with me? are there yet any more sons in my womb, that they may be your husbands?
Turn again , my daughters, go your way; for I am too old to have an husband. If I should say , I have hope, if I should have an husband also to night, and should also bear sons;
Would ye tarry for them till they were grown ? would ye stay for them from having husbands? nay, my daughters; for it grieveth me much for your sakes that the hand of the LORD is gone out against me.
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:
And Naomi said unto Ruth her daughter in law, It is good, my daughter, that thou go out with his maidens, that they meet thee not in any other field.
Then Naomi her mother in law said unto her, My daughter, shall I not seek rest for thee, that it may be well with thee?
And he said , Blessed be thou of the LORD, my daughter: for thou hast shewed more kindness in the latter end than at the beginning, inasmuch as thou followedst not young men, whether poor or rich.
And now, my daughter, fear not; I will do to thee all that thou requirest : for all the city of my people doth know that thou art a virtuous woman.
And when she came to her mother in law, she said , Who art thou, my daughter? And she told her all that the man had done to her.
Then said she, Sit still , my daughter, until thou know how the matter will fall : for the man will not be in rest , until he have finished the thing this day.
