RUTH 4:1 And Boaz hath gone up to the gate, and sitteth there, and lo, the redeemer is passing by of whom Boaz had spoken, and he saith, `Turn aside, sit down here, such a one, such a one;and he turneth aside and sitteth down. RUTH 4:2 And he taketh ten men of the elders of the city, and saith, `Sit down here;and they sit down. RUTH 4:3 And he saith to the redeemer, `A portion of the field which `isto our brother, to Elimelech, hath Naomi sold, who hath come back from the fields of Moab; RUTH 4:4 and I said, I uncover thine ear, saying, Buy before the inhabitants, and before the elders of my people; if thou dost redeem -- redeem, and if none doth redeem -- declare to me, and I know, for there is none save thee to redeem, and I after thee.And he saith, I redeem `it'.' RUTH 4:5 And Boaz saith, `In the day of thy buying the field from the hand of Naomi, then from Ruth the Moabitess, wife of the dead, thou hast bought `it', to raise up the name of the dead over his inheritance.' RUTH 4:6 And the redeemer saith, `I am not able to redeem `itfor myself, lest I destroy mine inheritance; redeem for thyself -- thou -- my right of redemption, for I am not able to redeem.' RUTH 4:7 And this `isformerly in Israel for redemption and for changing, to establish anything: a man hath drawn off his sandal, and given `itto his neighbour, and this `isthe testimony in Israel. RUTH 4:8 And the redeemer saith to Boaz, `Buy `itfor thyself,and draweth off his sandal. RUTH 4:9 And Boaz saith to the elders, and `toall the people, `Witnesses `areye to-day that I have bought all that `isto Elimelech, and all that `isto Chilion and Mahlon, from the hand of Naomi; RUTH 4:10 and also Ruth the Moabitess, wife of Mahlon, I have bought to myself for a wife, to raise up the name of the dead over his inheritance; and the name of the dead is not cut off from among his brethren, and from the gate of his place; witnesses ye `areto-day.' RUTH 4:11 And all the people who `arein the gate say -- also the elders -- `Witnesses! Jehovah make the woman who is coming in unto thy house as Rachel and as Leah, both of whom built the house of Israel; and do thou virtuously in Ephrathah, and proclaim the Name in Beth-Lehem; RUTH 4:12 and let thy house be as the house of Pharez (whom Tamar bare to Judah), of the seed which Jehovah doth give to thee of this young woman. RUTH 4:13 And Boaz taketh Ruth, and she becometh his wife, and he goeth in unto her, and Jehovah giveth to her conception, and she beareth a son. RUTH 4:14 And the women say unto Naomi, `Blessed `isJehovah who hath not let a redeemer cease to thee to-day, and his name is proclaimed in Israel, RUTH 4:15 and he hath been to thee for a restorer of life, and for a nourisher of thine old age, for thy daughter-in-law who hath loved thee -- who is better to thee than seven sons -- hath borne him. RUTH 4:16 And Naomi taketh the lad, and layeth him in her bosom, and is to him for a nurse; RUTH 4:17 and the neighbouring women give to him a name, saying, `There hath been a son born to Naomi,and they call his name Obed; he `isfather of Jesse, father of David. RUTH 4:18 And these are genealogies of Pharez: Pharez begat Hezron, RUTH 4:19 and Hezron begat Ram, and Ram begat Amminidab, RUTH 4:20 and Amminidab begat Nahshon, and Nahshon begat Salmon, RUTH 4:21 and Salmon begat Boaz, and Boaz begat Obed, RUTH 4:22 and Obed begat Jesse, and Jesse begat David.
