And he said, “Who are you?”

So she answered, “I am Ruth, your maidservant. fTake 2your maidservant under your wing, for you are ga 3close relative.”

10 Then he said, h“Blessed are you of the Lord, my daughter! For you have shown more kindness at the end than iat the beginning, in that you did not go after young men, whether poor or rich. 11 And now, my daughter, do not fear. I will do for you all that you request, for all the people of my town know that you are ja virtuous woman. 12 Now it is true that I am a kclose relative; however, lthere is a relative closer than I. 13 Stay this night, and in the morning it shall be that if he will mperform the duty of a close relative for you—good; let him do it. But if he does not want to perform the duty for you, then I will perform the duty for you, nas the Lord lives! Lie down until morning.”
