Ruth 2:9-11 Living Bible (TLB)
8-9 Boaz went over and talked to her. “Listen, my child,” he said to her. “Stay right here with us to glean; don’t think of going to any other fields. Stay right behind my women workers; I have warned the young men not to bother you; when you are thirsty, go and help yourself to the water.”
10-11 She thanked him warmly. “How can you be so kind to me?” she asked. “You must know I am only a foreigner.”
