Ruth 3:9New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

“Who are you?” he asked. She replied, “I am your servant Ruth. Spread the wing of your cloak[a] over your servant, for you are a redeemer.”

Footnotes:

  1. 3:9 Spread the wing of your cloak: Ez 16:8 makes it clear that this is a request for marriage. Ruth connects it to “redeemer” responsibility. A wordplay on “wing” links what Boaz is asked to do to what he has asked God to do for Ruth in 2:12.
