and may your house be like the house of Perez, whom Tamar bore to Judah, because of the children that the LORD will give you by this young woman."
So Bo'az took Ruth and she became his wife; and he went in to her, and the LORD gave her conception, and she bore a son.
Then the women said to Na'omi, "Blessed be the LORD, who has not left you this day without next of kin; and may his name be renowned in Israel!
He shall be to you a restorer of life and a nourisher of your old age; for your daughter-in-law who loves you, who is more to you than seven sons, has borne him."
Then Na'omi took the child and laid him in her bosom, and became his nurse.
And the women of the neighborhood gave him a name, saying, "A son has been born to Na'omi." They named him Obed; he was the father of Jesse, the father of David.
Now these are the descendants of Perez: Perez was the father of Hezron,
Hezron of Ram, Ram of Ammin'adab,
Ammin'adab of Nahshon, Nahshon of Salmon,
Salmon of Bo'az, Bo'az of Obed,
Obed of Jesse, and Jesse of David.
