Ruth 2:4

Context
Boaz and Ruth Meet

2:4 Now at that very moment, 1  Boaz arrived from Bethlehem 2  and greeted 3  the harvesters, “May the Lord be with you!” They replied, 4  “May the Lord bless you!”

1 tn Heb “and look”; NIV, NRSV “Just then.” The narrator invites the audience into the story, describing Boaz’s arrival as if it were witnessed by the audience.

2 map For location see Map5 B1; Map7 E2; Map8 E2; Map10 B4.

3 tn Heb “said to.” Context indicates that the following expression is a greeting, the first thing Boaz says to his workers.

4 tn Heb “said to him.” For stylistic reasons “replied” is used in the present translation.
