Stay this night, and in the morning it shall be that if he will perform the duty of a close relative for you--good; let him do it. But if he does not want to perform the duty for you, then I will perform the duty for you, as the LORD lives! Lie down until morning."


ഈ രാത്രി താമസിക്ക; നാളെ അവൻ നിനക്കു വീണ്ടെടുപ്പുകാരന്റെ മുറ നിവർത്തിച്ചാൽ കൊള്ളാം; അവൻ നിവർത്തിക്കട്ടെ; വീണ്ടെടുപ്പുകാരന്റെ മുറ നിവർത്തിപ്പാൻ അവന്നു മനസ്സില്ലെങ്കിലോ യഹോവയാണ ഞാൻ നിനക്കു വീണ്ടെടുപ്പുകാരന്റെ മുറ നിർവർത്തിച്ചുതരും; രാവിലെവരെ കിടന്നുകൊൾക.


Ruth 3:9

And he said, "Who are you?" So she answered, "I am Ruth, your maidservant. Take your maidservant under your wing, for you are a close relative."
