* And Naomi had a kinsman of her husband 's , a mighty man of wealth , of the family of Elimelech ; and his name was Boaz . * And Ruth the Moabitess said unto Naomi , Let me now go to the field , and glean ears of corn after him in whose sight I shall find grace . And she said unto her , Go , my daughter . * And she went , and came , and gleaned in the field after the reapers : and her hap was to light on a part of the field belonging unto Boaz , who was of the kindred of Elimelech . * And , behold , Boaz came from Bethlehem , and said unto the reapers , The LORD be with you . And they answered him , The LORD bless thee . * Then said Boaz unto his servant that was set over the reapers , Whose damsel is this ? * And the servant that was set over the reapers answered and said , It is the Moabitish damsel that came back with Naomi out of the country of Moab : * And she said , I pray you , let me glean and gather after the reapers among the sheaves : so she came , and hath continued even from the morning until now , that she tarried a little in the house . * 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 : * Let thine eyes be on the field that they do reap , and go thou after them : have I not charged the young men that they shall not touch thee ? and when thou art athirst , go unto the vessels , and drink of that which the young men have drawn . * Then she fell on her face , and bowed herself to the ground , and said unto him , Why have I found grace in thine eyes , that thou shouldest take knowledge of me , seeing I am a stranger ? * And Boaz answered and said unto her , It hath fully been shewed me , all that thou hast done unto thy mother in law since the death of thine husband : and how thou hast left thy father and thy mother , and the land of thy nativity , and art come unto a people which thou knewest not heretofore . * The LORD recompense thy work , and a full reward be given thee of the LORD God of Israel , under whose wings thou art come to trust . * Then she said , Let me find favour in thy sight , my lord ; for that thou hast comforted me , and for that thou hast spoken friendly unto thine handmaid , though I be not like unto one of thine handmaidens . * And Boaz said unto her , At mealtime come thou hither , and eat of the bread , and dip thy morsel in the vinegar . And she sat beside the reapers : and he reached her parched corn , and she did eat , and was sufficed , and left . * And when she was risen up to glean , Boaz commanded his young men , saying , Let her glean even among the sheaves , and reproach her not : * And let fall also some of the handfuls of purpose for her , and leave them , that she may glean them , and rebuke her not . * So she gleaned in the field until even , and beat out that she had gleaned : and it was about an ephah of barley . * And she took it up , and went into the city : and her mother in law saw what she had gleaned : and she brought forth , and gave to her that she had reserved after she was sufficed . * And her mother in law said unto her , Where hast thou gleaned to day ? and where wroughtest thou ? blessed be he that did take knowledge of thee . And she shewed her mother in law with whom she had wrought , and said , The man 's name with whom I wrought to day is Boaz . * And Naomi said unto her daughter in law , Blessed be he of the LORD , who hath not left off his kindness to the living and to the dead . And Naomi said unto her , The man is near of kin unto us , one of our next kinsmen . * And Ruth the Moabitess said , He said unto me also , Thou shalt keep fast by my young men , until they have ended all my harvest . * 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 . * So she kept fast by the maidens of Boaz to glean unto the end of barley harvest and of wheat harvest ; and dwelt with her mother in law .
