Ruth 3

3:1 Then Naomi her mother-in-law said to her, My daughter, shall
 I not seek rest for thee, that it may be well with thee?
3:2 And now [is] not Boaz of our kindred, with whose maidens
 thou wast? Behold, he winnoweth barley to-night in the
3:3 Wash thyself therefore, and anoint thee, and put thy raiment
 upon thee, and go down to the floor: [but] make not thyself
 known to the man, until he shall have done eating and drinking.
3:4 And it shall be when he lieth down, that thou shalt mark the
 place where he shall lie, and thou shalt go in, and uncover his
 feet, and lay thee down; and he will tell thee what thou shalt
3:5 And she said to her, All that thou sayest to me I will do.
3:6 And she went down to the floor, and did according to all
 that her mother-in-law bade her.
3:7 And when Boaz had eaten and drank, and his heart was merry,
 he went to lie down at the end of the heap of corn: and she
 came softly, and uncovered his feet, and laid herself down.
3:8 And it came to pass at midnight, that the man was afraid,
 and turned himself: and behold, a woman lay at his feet.
3:9 And he said, Who [art] thou? And she answered, I [am] Ruth
 thy handmaid: spread therefore thy skirt over thy handmaid;
 for thou [art] a near kinsman.
3:10 And he said, Blessed [be] thou of the LORD, my daughter:
 [for] thou hast shown more kindness in the latter end than at
 the beginning, inasmuch as thou didst not follow young men,
 whether poor or rich.
3:11 And now, my daughter, fear not; I will do to thee all that
 thou requirest: for all the city of my people doth know that
 thou [art] a virtuous woman.
3:12 And now it is true that I [am thy] near kinsman: yet there
 is a kinsman nearer than I.
3:13 Tarry this night, and it shall be in the morning, [that] if
 he will perform to thee the part of a kinsman, well; let him do
 the kinsman's part: but if he will not do the part of a kinsman
 to thee, then will I do the part of a kinsman to thee, [as] the
 LORD liveth: lie down until the morning.
3:14 And she lay at his feet until the morning: and she rose
 before one could know another. And he said, Let it not be known
 that a woman came to the floor.
3:15 Also he said, Bring the vail that [thou hast] upon thee,
 and hold it. And when she held it, he measured six [measures]
 of barley, and laid [it] on her: and she went into the city.
3:16 And when she came to her mother-in-law, she said, Who [art]
 thou, my daughter? And she told her all that the man had done
 to her.
3:17 And she said, These six [measures] of barley he gave me;
 for he said to me, Go not empty to thy mother-in-law.
3:18 Then said she, Sit still, my daughter, until thou knowest
 how the matter will fall: for the man will not be in rest,
 until he hath finished the thing this day.
