13 So Boaz r took Ruth and she became his wife; and when he went in to her, s the LORD gave her conception, and she bore a son. 14 Then t the women said to Naomi, "Blessed be the LORD, who has not left you this day without a 1 close relative; and may his name be famous in Israel! 15 "And may he be to you a restorer of life and a 2 nourisher of your old age; for your daughter-in-law, who loves you, who is u better to you than seven sons, has borne him." 16 Then Naomi took the child and laid him on her bosom, and became a nurse to him. 17 v Also the neighbor women gave him a name, saying, "There is a son born to Naomi." And they called his name Obed. He is the father of Jesse, the father of David.New King James Version (NKJV) Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson, Inc.
