فَصَعِدَ بُوعَزُ إِلَى ٱلْبَابِ وَجَلَسَ هُنَاكَ. وَإِذَا بِٱلْوَلِيِّ ٱلَّذِي تَكَلَّمَ عَنْهُ بُوعَزُ عَابِرٌ. فَقَالَ: «مِلْ وَٱجْلِسْ هُنَا أَنْتَ يَا فُلَانُ ٱلْفُلَانِيُّ». فَمَالَ وَجَلَسَ.١1
Then Boaz went up to the gate and sat down. Just then the near kinsman of whom Boaz had spoken came along. Boaz said, “Hello, So-and-so (calling him by name), come here and sit down.” So he stopped and sat down.
ثُمَّ أَخَذَ عَشَرَةَ رِجَالٍ مِنْ شُيُوخِ ٱلْمَدِينَةِ وَقَالَ لَهُمُ: «ٱجْلِسُوا هُنَا». فَجَلَسُوا.٢2
Boaz also took ten of the town elders and said, “Sit down here.” So they sat down.
ثُمَّ قَالَ لِلْوَلِيِّ: «إِنَّ نُعْمِيَ ٱلَّتِي رَجَعَتْ مِنْ بِلَادِ مُوآبَ تَبِيعُ قِطْعَةَ ٱلْحَقْلِ ٱلَّتِي لِأَخِينَا أَلِيمَالِكَ.٣3
Then he said to the near relative, “Naomi, who has come back from the country of Moab, is offering for sale the piece of land which belonged to our relative Elimelech,
فَقُلْتُ إِنِّي أُخْبِرُكَ قَائِلًا: ٱشْتَرِ قُدَّامَ ٱلْجَالِسِينَ وَقُدَّامَ شُيُوخِ شَعْبِي. فَإِنْ كُنْتَ تَفُكُّ فَفُكَّ. وَإِنْ كُنْتَ لَا تَفُكُّ فَأَخْبِرْنِي لِأَعْلَمَ. لِأَنَّهُ لَيْسَ غَيْرُكَ يَفُكُّ وَأَنَا بَعْدَكَ». فَقَالَ: «إِنِّي أَفُكُّ».٤4
and I thought that I would lay the matter before you, suggesting that you buy it in the presence of these men who sit here and of the elders of my people. If you will buy it and so keep it in the possession of the family, do so; but if not; then tell me, so that I may know; for no one but you has the right to buy it, and I am next to you.” “I will buy it.” he said.
فَقَالَ بُوعَزُ: «يَوْمَ تَشْتَرِي ٱلْحَقْلَ مِنْ يَدِ نُعْمِي تَشْتَرِي أَيْضًا مِنْ يَدِ رَاعُوثَ ٱلْمُوآبِيَّةِ ٱمْرَأَةِ ٱلْمَيِّتِ لِتُقِيمَ ٱسْمَ ٱلْمَيِّتِ عَلَى مِيرَاثِهِ».٥5
Then Boaz said, “On the day you buy the field from Naomi, you must also marry Ruth the Moabite, the widow of the dead, in order to preserve the name of the dead in connection with his inheritance.”
فَقَالَ ٱلْوَلِيُّ: «لَا أَقْدِرُ أَنْ أَفُكَّ لِنَفْسِي لِئَّلَا أُفْسِدَ مِيرَاثِي. فَفُكَّ أَنْتَ لِنَفْسِكَ فِكَاكِي لِأَنِّي لَا أَقْدِرُ أَنْ أَفُكَّ».٦6
“I cannot buy it for myself without spoiling my own inheritance,” the near relative said. “You take my right of buying it as a relative, because I cannot do so.”
وَهَذِهِ هِيَ ٱلْعَادَةُ سَابِقًا فِي إِسْرَائِيلَ فِي أَمْرِ ٱلْفِكَاكِ وَٱلْمُبَادَلَةِ، لِأَجْلِ إِثْبَاتِ كُلِّ أَمْرٍ. يَخْلَعُ ٱلرَّجُلُ نَعْلَهُ وَيُعْطِيهِ لِصَاحِبِهِ. فَهَذِهِ هِيَ ٱلْعَادَةُ فِي إِسْرَائِيلَ.٧7
Now this used to be the custom in Israel: to make valid anything relating to a matter of redemption or exchange, a man drew off his sandal and gave it to the other man; and this was the way contracts were attested in Israel.
فَقَالَ ٱلْوَلِيُّ لِبُوعَزَ: «ٱشْتَرِ لِنَفْسِكَ». وَخَلَعَ نَعْلَهُ.٨8
So when the near relative said to Boaz, “Buy it for yourself,” Boaz drew off the man's sandal.
فَقَالَ بُوعَزُ لِلشُّيُوخِ وَلِجَمِيعِ ٱلشَّعْبِ: «أَنْتُمْ شُهُودٌ ٱلْيَوْمَ أَنِّي قَدِ ٱشْتَرَيْتُ كُلَّ مَا لِأَلِيمَالِكَ وَكُلَّ مَا لِكِلْيُونَ وَمَحْلُونَ مِنْ يَدِ نُعْمِي.٩9
Then Boaz said to the elders and to all the people, “You are witnesses at this time that I have bought all that was Elimelech's and all that was Chilion's and Mahlon's from Naomi.
وَكَذَا رَاعُوثُ ٱلْمُوآبِيَّةُ ٱمْرَأَةُ مَحْلُونَ قَدِ ٱشْتَرَيْتُهَا لِيَ ٱمْرَأَةً، لِأُقِيمَ ٱسْمَ ٱلْمَيِّتِ عَلَى مِيرَاثِهِ وَلَا يَنْقَرِضُ ٱسْمُ ٱلْمَيِّتِ مِنْ بَيْنِ إِخْوَتِهِ وَمِنْ بَابِ مَكَانِهِ. أَنْتُمْ شُهُودٌ ٱلْيَوْمَ».١٠10
Moreover I have secured Ruth the Moabite, the wife of Mahlon, to be my wife, in order to perpetuate the name of the dead in connection with his inheritance, so that his name will not disappear from amongst his relatives and from the household where he lived. You are witnesses this day.”
فَقَالَ جَمِيعُ ٱلشَّعْبِ ٱلَّذِينَ فِي ٱلْبَابِ وَٱلشُّيُوخُ: «نَحْنُ شُهُودٌ. فَلْيَجْعَلِ ٱلرَّبُّ ٱلْمَرْأَةَ ٱلدَّاخِلَةَ إِلَى بَيْتِكَ كَرَاحِيلَ وَكَلَيْئَةَ ٱللَّتَيْنِ بَنَتَا بَيْتَ إِسْرَائِيلَ. فَٱصْنَعْ بِبَأْسٍ فِي أَفْرَاتَةَ وَكُنْ ذَا ٱسْمٍ فِي بَيْتِ لَحْمٍ.١١11
Then all the people who were at the gate and the elders said, “We are witnesses. May the Lord make the woman who is coming into your house like Rachel and Leah, who together built the house of Israel. May you do well in Ephrata, and become famous in Bethlehem.
وَلْيَكُنْ بَيْتُكَ كَبَيْتِ فَارَصَ ٱلَّذِي وَلَدَتْهُ ثَامَارُ لِيَهُوذَا، مِنَ ٱلنَّسْلِ ٱلَّذِي يُعْطِيكَ ٱلرَّبُّ مِنْ هَذِهِ ٱلْفَتَاةِ».١٢12
From the children whom the Lord will give you by this young woman may your household become like the household of Perez, whom Tamar bore to Judah.”
فَأَخَذَ بُوعَزُ رَاعُوثَ ٱمْرَأَةً وَدَخَلَ عَلَيْهَا، فَأَعْطَاهَا ٱلرَّبُّ حَبَلًا فَوَلَدَتِ ٱبْنًا.١٣13
So Boaz married Ruth, and she became his wife; and the Lord gave to her a son.
فَقَالَتِ ٱلنِّسَاءُ لِنُعْمِي: «مُبَارَكٌ ٱلرَّبُّ ٱلَّذِي لَمْ يُعْدِمْكِ وَلِيًّا ٱلْيَوْمَ لِكَيْ يُدْعَى ٱسْمُهُ فِي إِسْرَائِيلَ.١٤14
Then the women said to Naomi, “Blessed be the Lord who has not left you at this time without a near relative, and may his name be famous in Israel.
وَيَكُونُ لَكِ لِإِرْجَاعِ نَفْسٍ وَإِعَالَةِ شَيْبَتِكِ. لِأَنَّ كَنَّتَكِ ٱلَّتِي أَحَبَّتْكِ قَدْ وَلَدَتْهُ، وَهِيَ خَيْرٌ لَكِ مِنْ سَبْعَةِ بَنِينَ».١٥15
This child will restore your vigour and nourish you in your old age; for your daughter-in-law who loves you, who is worth more to you than seven sons, has borne a son to Boaz!”
فَأَخَذَتْ نُعْمِي ٱلْوَلَدَ وَوَضَعَتْهُ فِي حِضْنِهَا وَصَارَتْ لَهُ مُرَبِّيَةً.١٦16
So Naomi took the child in her arms and cared for him as if he was her own.
وَسَمَّتْهُ ٱلْجَارَاتُ ٱسْمًا قَائِلَاتٍ: «قَدْ وُلِدَ ٱبْنٌ لِنُعْمِي» وَدَعَوْنَ ٱسْمَهُ عُوبِيدَ. هُوَ أَبُو يَسَّى أَبِي دَاوُدَ.١٧17
The women of the neighbourhood gave him a name, saying, “A son is born to Naomi!” They named him Obed; he became the father of Jesse, who was the father of David.
وَهَذِهِ مَوَالِيدُ فَارَصَ: فَارَصُ وَلَدَ حَصْرُونَ،١٨18
This is the genealogy of Perez: Perez was the father of Hezron,
وَحَصْرُونُ وَلَدَ رَامَ، وَرَامُ وَلَدَ عَمِّينَادَابَ،١٩19
Hezron of Ram, Ram of Amminadab,
وَعَمِّينَادَابُ وَلَدَ نَحْشُونَ، وَنَحْشُونُ وَلَدَ سَلْمُونَ،٢٠20
Amminidab of Nashon, Nashon of Salmon,
وَسَلْمُونُ وَلَدَ بُوعَزَ، وَبُوعَزُ وَلَدَ عُوبِيدَ،٢١21
Salmon of Boaz, Boaz of Obed,
وَعُوبِيدُ وَلَدَ يَسَّى، وَيَسَّى وَلَدَ دَاوُدَ.٢٢22
Obed of Jesse, Jesse of David.
