Ruth 2:1-10 NKJV

1There was a #Ruth 3:2, 12relative of Naomi’s husband, a man of great wealth, of the family of #Ruth 1:2Elimelech. His name was #Ruth 4:21Boaz. 2So Ruth the Moabitess said to Naomi, “Please let me go to the #Lev. 19:9, 10; 23:22; Deut. 24:19field, and glean heads of grain after him in whose sight I may find favor.” And she said to her, “Go, my daughter.” 3Then she left, and went and gleaned in the field after the reapers. And she happened to come to the part of the field belonging to Boaz, who was of the family of Elimelech. 4Now behold, Boaz came from #Ruth 1:1Bethlehem, and said to the reapers, #Ps. 129:7, 8; Luke 1:28; 2 Thess. 3:16“The Lord be with you!” And they answered him, “The Lord bless you!” 5Then Boaz said to his servant who was in charge of the reapers, “Whose young woman is this?” 6So the servant who was in charge of the reapers answered and said, “It is the young Moabite woman #Ruth 1:22who came back with Naomi from the country of Moab. 7And she said, ‘Please let me glean and gather after the reapers among the sheaves.’ So she came and has continued from morning until now, though she rested a little in the house.” 8Then Boaz said to Ruth, “You will listen, my daughter, will you not? Do not go to glean in another field, nor go from here, but stay close by my young women. 9Let your eyes be on the field which they reap, and go after them. Have I not commanded the young men not to touch you? And when you are thirsty, go to the vessels and drink from what the young men have drawn.” 10So she #1 Sam. 25:23fell on her face, bowed down to the ground, and said to him, “Why have I found #1 Sam. 1:18favor in your eyes, that you should take notice of me, since I am a foreigner?”
