Bible: Ruth 3:1-5

Naomi Instructs Ruth

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 down 8  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 down 12  beside him. 13  He will tell 14  you what you should do.” 3:5 Ruth replied to Naomi, 15  “I will do everything you have told 16  me 17  to do.” 18
