Ruth



The book of Ruth, chapter 2, Vulgate and King James Version

Chapter 2

Vulgate


   1 Erat autem Noemi consangui neus viri sui homo potens et for tis nomine Booz.
   2 Dixitque Ruth Moabitis ad socrum suam: "Si permittis, vadam in agrum et colligam spicas, quae fugerint manus metentium, ubicumque clementis in me patris familias repperero gratiam". Cui illa respondit: "Vade, filia mea".
   3 Abiit itaque et colligebat spicas post terga metentium. Accidit autem ut ager ille haberet dominum nomine Booz, qui erat de cognatione Elimelech.
   4 Et ecce ipse veniebat de Bethlehem dixitque messoribus: "Dominus vobiscum". Qui responderunt ei: "Benedicat tibi Dominus".
   5 Dixitque Booz iuveni, qui messoribus praeerat: "Cuius est haec puella?".
   6 Qui respondit: "Haec est Moabitis, quae venit cum Noemi de regione Moabitide
   7 et rogavit, ut spicas colligeret remanentes sequens messorum vestigia; et de mane usque nunc stat in agro et nunc tantum ad momentum requievit".
   8 Et ait Booz ad Ruth: "Audi, filia: ne vadas ad colligendum in alterum agrum nec recedas ab hoc loco, sed iungere puellis meis.
   9 Vide et, ubi messuerint, sequere eas; mandavi enim pueris, ut nemo tibi molestus sit; sed, si sitieris, vade ad sarcinulas et bibe de aqua, quam pueri hauserint".
   10 Quae cadens in faciem suam et adorans super terram dixit ad eum: "Unde mihi hoc, ut invenirem gratiam ante oculos tuos, et nosse me dignareris peregrinam mulierem?".
   11 Cui ille respondit: "Nuntiata sunt mihi omnia, quae feceris socrui tuae post mortem viri tui et quod dereliqueris parentes tuos et terram, in qua nata es, et veneris ad populum, quem ante nesciebas.
   12 Reddat tibi Dominus pro opere tuo, et plenam mercedem recipias a Domino, Deo Israel, ad quem venisti et sub cuius confugisti alas".
   13 Quae ait: "Inveniam gratiam ante oculos tuos, domine mi, qui consolatus es me et locutus es ad cor ancillae tuae, quae non sum similis unius puellarum tuarum".
   14 Dixitque ad eam Booz hora vescendi: "Veni huc et comede panem et intinge buccellam tuam in aceto". Sedit itaque ad messorum latus, et porrexit ei polentam, comeditque et saturata est et tulit reliquias.
   15 Atque inde surrexit, ut spicas ex more colligeret. Praecepit autem Booz pueris suis dicens: "Etiam inter manipulos colligat, ne prohibeatis eam;
   16 quin et de fasciculis spicas proicite et remanere permittite, ut colligat, et colligentem nemo corripiat".
   17 Collegit ergo in agro usque ad vesperam; et, quae collegerat virga excutiens, invenit hordei quasi ephi mensuram (id est tres modios).
   18 Quos portans reversa est in civitatem et ostendit socrui suae, quae collegerat; insuper protulit et dedit ei de reliquiis cibi sui, quo saturata fuerat.
   19 Dixitque ei socrus: "Ubi hodie collegisti et ubi fecisti opus? Sit benedictus, qui misertus est tui!". Indicavitque ei apud quem esset operata et dixit: "Nomen viri est Booz".
   20 Cui respondit Noemi: "Benedictus sit a Domino, quia non subtraxit gratiam suam nec vivis nec mortuis!". Rursumque ait: "Propinquus noster est homo ex eis, qui pro nobis ius redemptionis habent".
   21 Et Ruth: "Hoc quoque, inquit, praecepit mihi, ut tamdiu messoribus eius iungerer, donec omnes segetes meterentur".
   22 Cui dixit socrus: "Melius est, filia mea, ut cum puellis eius exeas ad metendum, ne in alieno agro quispiam tibi molestus sit".
   23 Iuncta est itaque puellis Booz usque ad finem messis hordei et tritici; et mansit cum socru sua.

King James Version


   1 And Naomi had a kinsman of her husband's, a mighty man of wealth, of the family of Elimelech; and his name was Boaz.
   2 And Ruth the Moabitess said unto Naomi, Let me now go to the field, and glean ears of corn after him in whose sight I shall find grace. And she said unto her, Go, my daughter.
   3 And she went, and came, and gleaned in the field after the reapers: and her hap was to light on a part of the field belonging unto Boaz, who was of the kindred of Elimelech.
   4 ¶ And, behold, Boaz came from Beth-lehem, and said unto the reapers, The LORD be with you. And they answered him, The LORD bless thee.
   5 Then said Boaz unto his servant that was set over the reapers, Whose damsel is this?
   6 And the servant that was set over the reapers answered and said, It is the Moabitish damsel that came back with Naomi out of the country of Moab:
   7 And she said, I pray you, let me glean and gather after the reapers among the sheaves: so she came, and hath continued even from the morning until now, that she tarried a little in the house.
   8 Then said Boaz unto Ruth, Hearest thou not, my daughter? Go not to glean in another field, neither go from hence, but abide here fast by my maidens:
   9 Let thine eyes be on the field that they do reap, and go thou after them: have I not charged the young men that they shall not touch thee? and when thou art athirst, go unto the vessels, and drink of that which the young men have drawn.
   10 Then she fell on her face, and bowed herself to the ground, and said unto him, Why have I found grace in thine eyes, that thou shouldest take knowledge of me, seeing I am a stranger?
   11 And Boaz answered and said unto her, It hath fully been shewed me, all that thou hast done unto thy mother in law since the death of thine husband: and how thou hast left thy father and thy mother, and the land of thy nativity, and art come unto a people which thou knewest not heretofore.
   12 The LORD recompense thy work, and a full reward be given thee of the LORD God of Israel, under whose wings thou art come to trust.
   13 Then she said, Let me find favour in thy sight, my lord; for that thou hast comforted me, and for that thou hast spoken friendly unto thine handmaid, though I be not like unto one of thine handmaidens.
   14 And Boaz said unto her, At mealtime come thou hither, and eat of the bread, and dip thy morsel in the vinegar. And she sat beside the reapers: and he reached her parched corn, and she did eat, and was sufficed, and left.
   15 And when she was risen up to glean, Boaz commanded his young men, saying, Let her glean even among the sheaves, and reproach her not:
   16 And let fall also some of the handfuls of purpose for her, and leave them, that she may glean them, and rebuke her not.
   17 So she gleaned in the field until even, and beat out that she had gleaned: and it was about an ephah of barley.
   18 ¶ And she took it up, and went into the city: and her mother in law saw what she had gleaned: and she brought forth, and gave to her that she had reserved after she was sufficed.
   19 And her mother in law said unto her, Where hast thou gleaned to day? and where wroughtest thou? blessed be he that did take knowledge of thee. And she shewed her mother in law with whom she had wrought, and said, The man's name with whom I wrought to day is Boaz.
   20 And Naomi said unto her daughter in law, Blessed be he of the LORD, who hath not left off his kindness to the living and to the dead. And Naomi said unto her, The man is near of kin unto us, one of our next kinsmen.
   21 And Ruth the Moabitess said, He said unto me also, Thou shalt keep fast by my young men, until they have ended all my harvest.
   22 And Naomi said unto Ruth her daughter in law, It is good, my daughter, that thou go out with his maidens, that they meet thee not in any other field.
   23 So she kept fast by the maidens of Boaz to glean unto the end of barley harvest and of wheat harvest; and dwelt with her mother in law.
