1One day Ruth’s mother-in-law Naomi said to her, “My daughter, should I not seek a resting place for you, that it may be well with you?1וַתֹּ֥אמֶר לָ֖הּ נָעֳמִ֣י חֲמוֹתָ֑הּ בִּתִּ֞י הֲלֹ֧א אֲבַקֶּשׁ־ לָ֛ךְ מָנ֖וֹחַ אֲשֶׁ֥ר יִֽיטַב־ לָֽךְ׃
2Now is not Boaz, with whose servant girls you have been working, a relative of ours? In fact, tonight he is winnowing barley on the threshing floor.2וְעַתָּ֗ה הֲלֹ֥א בֹ֙עַז֙ מֹֽדַעְתָּ֔נוּ אֲשֶׁ֥ר הָיִ֖ית אֶת־ נַעֲרוֹתָ֑יו הִנֵּה־ ה֗וּא זֹרֶ֛ה אֶת־ גֹּ֥רֶן הַשְּׂעֹרִ֖ים הַלָּֽיְלָה׃
3Therefore wash yourself, put on perfume, and wear your best clothes. Go down to the threshing floor, but do not let the man know you are there until he has finished eating and drinking.3וְרָחַ֣צְתְּ ׀ וָסַ֗כְתְּ וְשַׂ֧מְתְּ [שמלתך] (שִׂמְלֹתַ֛יִךְ) עָלַ֖יִךְ [וירדתי] (וְיָרַ֣דְתְּ) הַגֹּ֑רֶן אַל־ תִּוָּדְעִ֣י לָאִ֔ישׁ עַ֥ד כַּלֹּת֖וֹ לֶאֱכֹ֥ל וְלִשְׁתּֽוֹת׃
4When he lies down, note the place where he lies. Then go in and uncover his feet, and lie down, and he will explain to you what you should do.”4וִיהִ֣י בְשָׁכְב֗וֹ וְיָדַ֙עַתְּ֙ אֶת־ הַמָּקוֹם֙ אֲשֶׁ֣ר יִשְׁכַּב־ שָׁ֔ם וּבָ֛את וְגִלִּ֥ית מַרְגְּלֹתָ֖יו [ושכבתי] (וְשָׁכָ֑בְתְּ) וְהוּא֙ יַגִּ֣יד לָ֔ךְ אֵ֖ת אֲשֶׁ֥ר תַּעַשִֽׂין׃‪‬‪‬
5“I will do everything you say,” Ruth answered.5וַתֹּ֖אמֶר אֵלֶ֑יהָ כֹּ֛ל אֲשֶׁר־ תֹּאמְרִ֥י (אֵלַ֖י) אֶֽעֱשֶֽׂה׃
6So she went down to the threshing floor and did everything her mother-in-law had instructed her.6וַתֵּ֖רֶד הַגֹּ֑רֶן וַתַּ֕עַשׂ כְּכֹ֥ל אֲשֶׁר־ צִוַּ֖תָּה חֲמוֹתָֽהּ׃
7After Boaz had finished eating and drinking and was in good spirits, he went to lie down at the end of the heap of grain. Then Ruth went in secretly, uncovered his feet, and lay down.7וַיֹּ֨אכַל בֹּ֤עַז וַיֵּשְׁתְּ֙ וַיִּיטַ֣ב לִבּ֔וֹ וַיָּבֹ֕א לִשְׁכַּ֖ב בִּקְצֵ֣ה הָעֲרֵמָ֑ה וַתָּבֹ֣א בַלָּ֔ט וַתְּגַ֥ל מַרְגְּלֹתָ֖יו וַתִּשְׁכָּֽב׃
8At midnight, Boaz was startled, turned over, and there lying at his feet was a woman!8וַיְהִי֙ בַּחֲצִ֣י הַלַּ֔יְלָה וַיֶּחֱרַ֥ד הָאִ֖ישׁ וַיִּלָּפֵ֑ת וְהִנֵּ֣ה אִשָּׁ֔ה שֹׁכֶ֖בֶת מַרְגְּלֹתָֽיו׃
9“Who are you?” he asked. “I am your servant Ruth,” she replied. “Spread the corner of your garment over me, for you are a kinsman-redeemer.”9וַיֹּ֖אמֶר מִי־ אָ֑תּ‪‬ וַתֹּ֗אמֶר אָנֹכִי֙ ר֣וּת אֲמָתֶ֔ךָ וּפָרַשְׂתָּ֤ כְנָפֶ֙ךָ֙ עַל־ אֲמָ֣תְךָ֔ כִּ֥י גֹאֵ֖ל אָֽתָּה׃
10Then Boaz said, “May the LORD bless you, my daughter. You have shown more kindness now than before, because you have not run after the younger men, whether rich or poor.10וַיֹּ֗אמֶר בְּרוּכָ֨ה אַ֤תְּ לַֽיהוָה֙ בִּתִּ֔י הֵיטַ֛בְתְּ חַסְדֵּ֥ךְ הָאַחֲר֖וֹן מִן־ הָרִאשׁ֑וֹן לְבִלְתִּי־ לֶ֗כֶת אַחֲרֵי֙ הַבַּ֣חוּרִ֔ים אִם־ דַּ֖ל וְאִם־ עָשִֽׁיר׃
11And now do not be afraid, my daughter. I will do for you whatever you request, since all my fellow townspeople know that you are a woman of noble character.11וְעַתָּ֗ה בִּתִּי֙ אַל־ תִּ֣ירְאִ֔י כֹּ֥ל אֲשֶׁר־ תֹּאמְרִ֖י אֶֽעֱשֶׂה־ לָּ֑ךְ כִּ֤י יוֹדֵ֙עַ֙ כָּל־ שַׁ֣עַר עַמִּ֔י כִּ֛י אֵ֥שֶׁת חַ֖יִל אָֽתְּ׃
12Yes, it is true that I am a kinsman-redeemer, but there is a redeemer nearer than I.12וְעַתָּה֙ כִּ֣י אָמְנָ֔ם כִּ֥י [אם] גֹאֵ֖ל אָנֹ֑כִי וְגַ֛ם יֵ֥שׁ גֹּאֵ֖ל קָר֥וֹב מִמֶּֽנִּי׃
13Stay here tonight, and in the morning, if he wants to redeem you, good. Let him redeem you. But if he does not want to redeem you, as surely as the LORD lives, I will. Now lie here until morning.”13לִ֣ינִי ׀ הַלַּ֗יְלָה וְהָיָ֤ה בַבֹּ֙קֶר֙ אִם־ יִגְאָלֵ֥ךְ טוֹב֙ יִגְאָ֔ל וְאִם־ לֹ֨א יַחְפֹּ֧ץ לְגָֽאֳלֵ֛ךְ וּגְאַלְתִּ֥יךְ אָנֹ֖כִי חַי־ יְהוָ֑ה שִׁכְבִ֖י עַד־ הַבֹּֽקֶר׃
14So she lay down at his feet until morning, but she got up before anyone else could recognize her. Then Boaz said, “Do not let it be known that a woman came to the threshing floor.”14וַתִּשְׁכַּ֤ב [מרגלתו] (מַרְגְּלוֹתָיוֹ֙‪‬‪‬‪‬‪‬) עַד־ הַבֹּ֔קֶר וַתָּ֕קָם [בטרום] (בְּטֶ֛רֶם) יַכִּ֥יר אִ֖ישׁ אֶת־ רֵעֵ֑הוּ וַיֹּ֙אמֶר֙ אַל־ יִוָּדַ֔ע כִּי־ בָ֥אָה הָאִשָּׁ֖ה הַגֹּֽרֶן׃
15And he told her, “Bring the shawl you are wearing and hold it out.” When she did so, he shoveled six measures of barley into her shawl. Then he went into the city.15וַיֹּ֗אמֶר הָ֠בִי הַמִּטְפַּ֧חַת אֲשֶׁר־ עָלַ֛יִךְ וְאֶֽחֳזִי־ בָ֖הּ וַתֹּ֣אחֶז בָּ֑הּ וַיָּ֤מָד שֵׁשׁ־ שְׂעֹרִים֙ וַיָּ֣שֶׁת עָלֶ֔יהָ וַיָּבֹ֖א הָעִֽיר׃
16When Ruth returned to her mother-in-law, Naomi asked her, “How did it go, my daughter?” Then Ruth told her all that Boaz had done for her.16וַתָּבוֹא֙ אֶל־ חֲמוֹתָ֔הּ וַתֹּ֖אמֶר מִי־ אַ֣תְּ בִּתִּ֑י וַתַּ֨גֶּד־ לָ֔הּ אֵ֛ת כָּל־ אֲשֶׁ֥ר עָֽשָׂה־ לָ֖הּ הָאִֽישׁ׃
17And she said, “He gave me these six measures of barley, for he said, ’Do not go back to your mother-in-law empty-handed.’”17וַתֹּ֕אמֶר שֵׁשׁ־ הַשְּׂעֹרִ֥ים הָאֵ֖לֶּה נָ֣תַן לִ֑י כִּ֚י אָמַ֣ר (אֵלַ֔י) אַל־ תָּב֥וֹאִי רֵיקָ֖ם אֶל־ חֲמוֹתֵֽךְ׃
18“Wait, my daughter,” said Naomi, “until you find out how things go, for he will not rest unless he has resolved the matter today.”18וַתֹּ֙אמֶר֙ שְׁבִ֣י בִתִּ֔י עַ֚ד אֲשֶׁ֣ר תֵּֽדְעִ֔ין אֵ֖יךְ יִפֹּ֣ל דָּבָ֑ר כִּ֣י לֹ֤א יִשְׁקֹט֙ הָאִ֔ישׁ כִּֽי־ אִם־ כִּלָּ֥ה הַדָּבָ֖ר הַיּֽוֹם׃
