2:1-13 (March 6/19)
OT
Ruth 2:1-13
Now Naomi had a relative
of her husband’s,
Relationship
a worthy man
Explanation
of the clan
Partitive
of Elimelech,
whose name was Boaz.
And Ruth the Moabite said
to Naomi,
Destination
“Let me go
Content
to the field
and glean
among the ears
Locative
of grain
Material
after him
in whose sight I shall find favor.”
And she said to her,
“Go, my daughter.”
So she set out
and went
and gleaned
in the field
after the reapers,
and she happened to come
Temporal
to the part
of the field
belonging to Boaz,
who was
of the clan
of Elimelech.
And behold, Boaz came
from Bethlehem.
Separation
And he said
to the reapers,
“The Lord be with you!”
And they answered,
“The Lord bless you.”
Then Boaz said
to his young man
who was in charge
of the reapers,
Subordination
“Whose young woman is this?”
And the servant ... answered,
who was in charge
of the reapers
“She is the young Moabite woman,
Content #1
who came back
with Naomi
Accompaniment
from the country
of Moab.
Epexegetical
She said,
Content #2
‘Please let me glean
and gather
among the sheaves
after the reapers.’
So she came,
Result #1
and she has continued
Result #2
from early morning
until now,
except for a short rest.”
Concessive
Then Boaz said
to Ruth,
“Now, listen, my daughter,
do not go
Negative #1
to glean
Purpose
in another field
or leave this one,
Negative #2
but keep close
Content #1
to my young women.
Let your eyes be on the field
Content #2a
that they are reaping,
and go
Content #2b
after them.
Have I not charged the young men
Content #3
not to touch you?
And when you are thirsty,
go
Content #4a
to the vessels
and drink what the young men have drawn.”
Content #4b
Then she fell
on her face,
bowing
Manner
to the ground,
and said
to him,
“Why have I found favor
in your eyes,
that you should take notice of me,
Result
since I am a foreigner?”
Ground
But Boaz answered her,
“All that you have done ... has been fully told to me,
Content #1
for your mother- in- law
Advantage
since the death
of your husband
Subjective
and how you left your father
and mother
and your native land
and came
to a people
that you did not know before.
The Lord repay you
Content #2a
for what you have done,
and a full reward be given you
Content #2b
by the Lord,
Agency
the God
of Israel,
under whose wings you have come
to take refuge!”
Then she said,
“I have found favor
in your eyes, my lord,
for you have comforted me
and spoken kindly
to your servant,
though I am not one
of your servants.”
I'm calling this phrase Ground, because Ruth is saying, "I know that I have found favour with you because you have comforted me." This is true even though the comforting has the Ground of finding favour, which is the opposite!
"that belonged"
predicate of verb
Called it #2 b because it is a repetition of the same command (same with #3).
