رَاعُوث 2

وَكَانَ لِنُعْمِي ذُو قَرَابَةٍ لِرَجُلِهَا، جَبَّارُ بَأْسٍ مِنْ عَشِيرَةِ أَلِيمَالِكَ، ٱسْمُهُ بُوعَزُ. ١ 1
Now Naomi had a relative of her husband, a worthy man of the clan of Elimelech, whose name was Boaz.
فَقَالَتْ رَاعُوثُ ٱلْمُوآبِيَّةُ لِنُعْمِي: «دَعِينِي أَذْهَبْ إِلَى ٱلْحَقْلِ وَأَلْتَقِطْ سَنَابِلَ وَرَاءَ مَنْ أَجِدُ نِعْمَةً فِي عَيْنَيْهِ». فَقَالَتْ لَهَا: «ٱذْهَبِي يَابِنْتِي». ٢ 2
Ruth, the Moabite woman, said to Naomi, “Now let me go and glean what remains among the ears of grain in the fields. I will follow anyone in whose eyes I will find favor.” So Naomi said to her, “Go, my daughter.”
فَذَهَبَتْ وَجَاءَتْ وَٱلْتَقَطَتْ فِي ٱلْحَقْلِ وَرَاءَ ٱلْحَصَّادِينَ. فَٱتَّفَقَ نَصِيبُهَا فِي قِطْعَةِ حَقْلٍ لِبُوعَزَ ٱلَّذِي مِنْ عَشِيرَةِ أَلِيمَالِكَ. ٣ 3
Ruth went and gleaned what remained in the fields after they had harvested it. She happened to come to the portion of the fields belonging to Boaz, who was of the clan of Elimelek.
وَإِذَا بِبُوعَزَ قَدْ جَاءَ مِنْ بَيْتِ لَحْمٍ وَقَالَ لِلْحَصَّادِينَ: «ٱلرَّبُّ مَعَكُمْ». فَقَالُوا لَهُ: «يُبَارِكُكَ ٱلرَّبُّ». ٤ 4
Behold, Boaz came from Bethlehem and said to the reapers, “May Yahweh be with you.” They answered him, “May Yahweh bless you.”
فَقَالَ بُوعَزُ لِغُلَامِهِ ٱلْمُوَكَّلِ عَلَى ٱلْحَصَّادِينَ: «لِمَنْ هَذِهِ ٱلْفَتَاةُ؟» ٥ 5
Then Boaz said to his servant who was supervising the reapers, “What man does this young woman belong to?”
فَأَجَابَ ألْغُلَامُ المُوَكَّلُ عَلَى ٱلحَصَّادِينَ وَقَالَ: «هِيَ فَتَاةٌ مُوآبِيَّةٌ قَدْ رَجَعَتْ مَعَ نُعْمِي مِنْ بِلَادِ مُوآبَ، ٦ 6
The servant supervising the reapers answered and said, “It is the young Moabite woman who came back with Naomi from the land of Moab.
وَقَالَتْ: دَعُونِي أَلْتَقِطْ وَأَجْمَعْ بَيْنَ ٱلْحُزَمِ وَرَاءَ ٱلْحَصَّادِينَ. فَجَاءَتْ وَمَكَثَتْ مِنَ ٱلصَّبَاحِ إِلَى ٱلْآنَ. قَلِيلًا مَّا لَبِثَتْ فِي ٱلْبَيْتِ». ٧ 7
She said to me, 'Please let me glean what remains in the field after the workers harvest the crop.' So she came here and has continued from the morning until now, except that she rested a little in the house.”
فَقَالَ بُوعَزُ لِرَاعُوثَ: «أَلَا تَسْمَعِينَ يَابِنْتِي؟ لَا تَذْهَبِي لِتَلْتَقِطِي فِي حَقْلِ آخَرَ، وَأَيْضًا لَا تَبْرَحِي مِنْ هَهُنَا، بَلْ هُنَا لَازِمِي فَتَيَاتِي. ٨ 8
Then Boaz said to Ruth, “Are you listening to me, my daughter? Do not go and glean in another field; do not leave my field. Instead, stay here and work with my young female workers.
عَيْنَاكِ عَلَى ٱلْحَقْلِ ٱلَّذِي يَحْصُدُونَ وَٱذْهَبِي وَرَاءَهُمْ. أَلَمْ أُوصِ ٱلْغِلْمَانَ أَنْ لَا يَمَسُّوكِ؟ وَإِذَا عَطِشْتِ فَٱذْهَبِي إِلَى ٱلْآنِيَةِ وَٱشْرَبِي مِمَّا ٱسْتَقَاهُ ٱلْغِلْمَانُ». ٩ 9
Keep your eyes only on the field where the men are reaping and follow behind the other women. Have I not instructed the men not to touch you? Whenever you are thirsty, you may go to the waterpots and drink the water that the men have drawn.”
فَسَقَطَتْ عَلَى وَجْهِهَا وَسَجَدَتْ إِلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ وَقَالَتْ لَهُ: «كَيْفَ وَجَدْتُ نِعْمَةً فِي عَيْنَيْكَ حَتَّى تَنْظُرَ إِلَيَّ وَأَنَا غَرِيبَةٌ؟» ١٠ 10
Then she bowed down before Boaz, touching her face to the ground. She said to him, “Why have I found such favor in your eyes that you should be concerned about me, a foreigner?”
فَأَجَابَ بُوعَزُ وَقَالَ لَهَا: «إِنَّنِي قَدْ أُخْبِرْتُ بِكُلِّ مَا فَعَلْتِ بِحَمَاتِكِ بَعْدَ مَوْتِ رَجُلِكِ، حَتَّى تَرَكْتِ أَبَاكِ وَأُمَّكِ وَأَرْضَ مَوْلِدِكِ وَسِرْتِ إِلَى شَعْبٍ لَمْ تَعْرِفِيهِ مِنْ قَبْلُ. ١١ 11
Boaz answered and said to her, “It has been reported to me, all that you have done since the death of your husband. You have left your father, mother, and the land of your birth to follow your mother-in-law and to come to a people you do not know.
لِيُكَافِئِ ٱلرَّبُّ عَمَلَكِ، وَلْيَكُنْ أَجْرُكِ كَامِلًا مِنْ عِنْدِ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِ إِسْرَائِيلَ ٱلَّذِي جِئْتِ لِكَيْ تَحْتَمِيَ تَحْتَ جَنَاحَيْهِ». ١٢ 12
May Yahweh reward you for your deed. May you receive full payment from Yahweh, the God of Israel, under whose wings you have found refuge.”
فَقَالَتْ: «لَيْتَنِي أَجِدُ نِعْمَةً فِي عَيْنَيْكَ يَا سَيِّدِي لِأَنَّكَ قَدْ عَزَّيْتَنِي وَطَيَّبْتَ قَلْبَ جَارِيَتِكَ، وَأَنَا لَسْتُ كَوَاحِدَةٍ مِنْ جَوَارِيكَ». ١٣ 13
Then she said, “Let me find favor in your eyes, my master, for you have comforted me, and you have spoken kindly to me, though I am not one of your female servants.”
فَقَالَ لَهَا بُوعَزُ: «عِنْدَ وَقْتِ ٱلْأَكْلِ تَقَدَّمِي إِلَى هَهُنَا وَكُلِي مِنَ ٱلْخُبْزِ، وَٱغْمِسِي لُقْمَتَكِ فِي ٱلْخَلِّ». فَجَلَسَتْ بِجَانِبِ ٱلْحَصَّادِينَ فَنَاوَلَهَا فَرِيكًا، فَأَكَلَتْ وَشَبِعَتْ وَفَضَلَ عَنْهَا. ١٤ 14
At mealtime Boaz said to Ruth, “Come here, and eat some of the bread, and dip your morsel in the wine vinegar.” She sat beside the reapers, and he offered her some roasted grain. She ate until she was satisfied and left the rest of it.
ثُمَّ قَامَتْ لِتَلْتَقِطَ. فَأَمَرَ بُوعَزُ غِلْمَانَهُ قَائِلًا: «دَعُوهَا تَلْتَقِطْ بَيْنَ ٱلْحُزَمِ أَيْضًا وَلَا تُؤْذُوهَا. ١٥ 15
As she got up to gather up grain, Boaz commanded his young men, saying, “Let her gather up the grain even among the bundles, and do not tell her not to.
وَأَنْسِلُوا أَيْضًا لَهَا مِنَ ٱلشَّمَائِلِ وَدَعُوهَا تَلْتَقِطْ وَلَا تَنْتَهِرُوهَا». ١٦ 16
Also pull out for her some ears of grain from the bundles, and leave them for her to gather up, and do not rebuke her.”
فَٱلْتَقَطَتْ فِي ٱلْحَقْلِ إِلَى ٱلْمَسَاءِ، وَخَبَطَتْ مَا ٱلْتَقَطَتْهُ فَكَانَ نَحْوَ إِيفَةِ شَعِيرٍ. ١٧ 17
So she gleaned in the field until evening. Then she beat out the ears of grain that she had gathered, and the grain was about an ephah of barley.
فَحَمَلَتْهُ وَدَخَلَتِ ٱلْمَدِينَةَ. فَرَأَتْ حَمَاتُهَا مَا ٱلْتَقَطَتْهُ. وَأَخْرَجَتْ وَأَعْطَتْهَا مَا فَضَلَ عَنْهَا بَعْدَ شِبَعِهَا. ١٨ 18
She lifted it up and went into the city. Then her mother-in-law saw what she had gathered. Ruth also brought out the roasted grain left from her meal and gave it to her.
فَقَالَتْ لَهَا حَمَاتُهَا: «أَيْنَ ٱلْتَقَطْتِ ٱلْيَوْمَ؟ وَأَيْنَ ٱشْتَغَلْتِ؟ لِيَكُنِ ٱلنَّاظِرُ إِلَيْكِ مُبَارَكًا». فَأَخْبَرَتْ حَمَاتَهَا بِٱلَّذِي ٱشْتَغَلَتْ مَعَهُ وَقَالَتِ: «ٱسْمُ ٱلرَّجُلِ ٱلَّذِي ٱشْتَغَلْتُ مَعَهُ ٱلْيَوْمَ بُوعَزُ». ١٩ 19
Her mother-in-law said to her, “Where have you gleaned today? Where did you go to work? May the man who helped you be blessed.” Then Ruth told her mother-in-law about the man who owned the field where she had worked. She said, “The name of the man who owns the field where I worked today is Boaz.”
فَقَالَتْ نُعْمِي لِكَنَّتِهَا: «مُبَارَكٌ هُوَ مِنَ ٱلرَّبِّ لِأَنَّهُ لَمْ يَتْرُكِ ٱلْمَعْرُوفَ مَعَ ٱلْأَحْيَاءِ وَٱلْمَوْتَى». ثُمَّ قَالَتْ لَهَا نُعْمِي: «ٱلرَّجُلُ ذُو قَرَابَةٍ لَنَا. هُوَ ثَانِي وَلِيِّنَا». ٢٠ 20
Naomi said to her daughter-in-law, “May he be blessed by Yahweh, who has not left off his loyalty to the living and to the dead.” Naomi said to her, “That man is near of kin to us, one of our kinsman-redeemers.”
فَقَالَتْ رَاعُوثُ ٱلْمُوآبِيَّةُ: «إِنَّهُ قَالَ لِي أَيْضًا: لَازِمِي فِتْيَانِي حَتَّى يُكَمِّلُوا جَمِيعَ حَصَادِي». ٢١ 21
Ruth the Moabite woman said, “Indeed, he said to me, 'You should keep close to my young men until they have finished all my harvest.'”
فَقَالَتْ نُعْمِي لِرَاعُوثَ كَنَّتِهَا: «إِنَّهُ حَسَنٌ يَابِنْتِي أَنْ تَخْرُجِي مَعَ فَتَيَاتِهِ حَتَّى لَا يَقَعُوا بِكِ فِي حَقْلِ آخَرَ». ٢٢ 22
Naomi said to Ruth her daughter-in-law, “It is good, my daughter, that you go out with his young female workers, so that you do not come to harm in any other field.”
فَلَازَمَتْ فَتَيَاتِ بُوعَزَ فِي ٱلِٱلْتِقَاطِ حَتَّى ٱنْتَهَى حَصَادُ ٱلشَّعِيرِ وَحَصَادُ ٱلْحِنْطَةِ. وَسَكَنَتْ مَعَ حَمَاتِهَا. ٢٣ 23
So she stayed close to Boaz's female workers in order to glean to the end of the barley harvest and the wheat harvest. She lived with her mother-in-law.
