Ruth 2:12

Context
2:12 May the Lord reward your efforts! 1  May your acts of kindness be repaid fully 2  by the Lord God of Israel, from whom you have sought protection!” 3 

1 tn Heb “repay your work”; KJV, ASV “recompense thy work.” The prefixed verbal form is understood as a jussive of prayer (note the jussive form in the next clause).

2 tn Heb “may your wages be complete”; NCV “May your wages be paid in full.” The prefixed verbal form is a distinct jussive form, indicating that this is a prayer for blessing.

3 tn Heb “under whose wings you have sought shelter”; NIV, NLT “have come to take refuge.”
