Naomi Heartfelt Desire - Ruth 3

Ruth 3:1 Then Naomi her mother in law said unto her, My  daughter, shall I not seek rest for thee, that it may be well  with thee? 

Ruth 3:2 And now is not Boaz of our kindred,  with whose maidens thou wast? Behold, he winnoweth  barley to night in the threshingfloor. 

Ruth 3:3 Wash thyself  therefore, and anoint thee, and put thy raiment upon thee,  and get thee down to the floor: but make not thyself  known unto the man, until he shall have done eating and  drinking. 

Ruth 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 do. 

Ruth 3:5 And she said unto her,  All that thou sayest unto me I will do.  

Ruth 3:6 And she went down unto the floor, and did  according to all that her mother in law bade her. 

Ruth 3:7 And  when Boaz had eaten and drunk, 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 her down.  

Ruth 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. 

Ruth 3:9 And he said, Who art thou? And she answered,  I am Ruth thine handmaid: spread therefore thy skirt over  thine handmaid; for thou art a near kinsman. 

Ruth 3:10 And  he said, Blessed be thou of the LORD, my daughter: for  thou hast shewed more kindness in the latter end than at the  beginning, inasmuch as thou followedst not young men,  whether poor or rich. 


Ruth 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.  

Ruth 3:12 And now it is true that I am thy near kinsman:  howbeit there is a kinsman nearer than I. 

Ruth 3:13 Tarry this  night, and it shall be in the morning, that if he will  perform unto 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.  

Ruth 3:14 And she lay at his feet until the morning: and she  rose up before one could know another. And he said, Let it  not be known that a woman came into the floor. 

Ruth 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.  

Ruth 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. 

Ruth 3:17 And she said, These six  measures of barley gave he me; for he said to me, Go not  empty unto thy mother in law. 

Ruth 3:18 Then said she, Sit  still, my daughter, until thou know how the matter will fall:  for the man will not be in rest, until he have finished the  thing this day.
