So Boaz took Ruth, and she became his wife, and he went in to her. And 1the LORD enabled her to conceive, and she gave birth to a son.
Then the 2women said to Naomi, "Blessed is the LORD who has not left you without a redeemer today, and may his name become famous in Israel.
"May he also be to you a restorer of life and a sustainer of your old age; for your daughter-in-law, who loves you 3and is better to you than seven sons, has given birth to him."
Then Naomi took the child and laid him in her lap, and became his nurse.
The neighbor women gave him a name, saying, "A son has been born to Naomi!" So they named him Obed. He is the father of Jesse, the father of David.
