Ruth Chapters

1 Naomi had a kinsman on her husband's side, well-to-do and of Elimelech's clan. His name was Boaz.

2 Ruth the Moabitess said to Naomi, 'Let me go into the fields and glean ears of corn in the footsteps of some man who will look on me with favour.' She replied, 'Go, daughter.'

3 So she set out and went to glean in the fields behind the reapers. Chance led her to a plot of land belonging to Boaz of Elimelech's clan.
