3:1 At that time,1 Naomi, her mother-in-law, said to her, “My daughter, I must find a home for you so you will be secure.2 3:2 Now Boaz, with whose female servants you worked, is our close relative.3 Look, tonight he is winnowing barley at the threshing floor.4 3:3 So bathe yourself,5 rub on some perfumed oil,6 and get dressed up.7 Then go down8 to the threshing floor. But don’t let the man know you’re there until he finishes his meal.9 3:4 When he gets ready to go to sleep,10 take careful notice of the place where he lies down. Then go, uncover his legs,11 and lie down12 beside him.13 He will tell14 you what you should do.” 3:5 Ruth replied to Naomi,15 “I will do everything you have told16 me17 to do.”18
