Ruth 2:1-7

NLT 1 Now there was a wealthy and influential man in Bethlehem named Boaz, who was a relative of Naomi’s husband, Elimelech. NIV 1 Now Naomi had a relative on her husband's side, from the clan of Elimelech, a man of standing, whose name was Boaz. NLT 2 One day Ruth the Moabite said to Naomi, “Let me go out into the harvest fields to pick up the stalks of grain left behind by anyone who is kind enough to let me do it.” Naomi replied, “All right, my daughter, go ahead.” NIV 2 And Ruth the Moabitess said to Naomi, "Let me go to the fields and pick up the leftover grain behind anyone in whose eyes I find favor." Naomi said to her, "Go ahead, my daughter." NLT 3 So Ruth went out to gather grain behind the harvesters. And as it happened, she found herself working in a field that belonged to Boaz, the relative of her father-in-law, Elimelech. NIV 3 So she went out and began to glean in the fields behind the harvesters. As it turned out, she found herself working in a field belonging to Boaz, who was from the clan of Elimelech. NLT 4 While she was there, Boaz arrived from Bethlehem and greeted the harvesters. “The be with you!” he said. “The bless you!” the harvesters replied. NIV 4 Just then Boaz arrived from Bethlehem and greeted the harvesters, "The LORD be with you!" "The LORD bless you!" they called back. NLT 5 Then Boaz asked his foreman, “Who is that young woman over there? Who does she belong to?” NIV 5 Boaz asked the foreman of his harvesters, "Whose young woman is that?" NLT 6 And the foreman replied, “She is the young woman from Moab who came back with Naomi. NIV 6 The foreman replied, "She is the Moabitess who came back from Moab with Naomi. NLT 7 She asked me this morning if she could gather grain behind the harvesters. She has been hard at work ever since, except for a few minutes’ rest in the shelter.” NIV 7 She said, 'Please let me glean and gather among the sheaves behind the harvesters.' She went into the field and has worked steadily from morning till now, except for a short rest in the shelter."
