Ruth 3:9-11 Evangelical Heritage Version (EHV)

He said, “Who are you?”

She said, “I am Ruth, your servant. Spread out the skirt of your robe[a] over your servant, for you are a family redeemer.”

10 Then he said, “May you be blessed by the Lord, my daughter! You have made your last act of kindness better than the first by not going to look for a young man, whether poor or rich. 11 So now, my daughter, do not be afraid. I will do everything that you are asking. Indeed, all the people at the city gate[b] know that you are an honorable woman.
