11 Then all the people that were in the gate, and the ancients answered: We are witnesses: The Lord make this woman who cometh into thy house, like Rachel, and Lia, who built up the house of Israel: that she may be an example of virtue in Ephrata, and may have a famous name in Bethlehem: 12 And that the house may be, as the house of Phares, whom Thamar bore unto Juda, of the seed which the Lord shall give thee of this young woman. 13 Booz therefore took Ruth, and married her: and went in unto her, and the Lord gave her to conceive and to bear a son. 14 And the women said to Noemi: Blessed be the Lord, who hath not suffered thy family to want a successor, that his name should be preserved in Israel. 15 And thou shouldst have one to comfort thy soul, and cherish thy old age. For he is born of thy daughter in law: who loveth thee: and is much better to thee, than if thou hadst seven sons.
11 "Ephrata"... Another name of Bethlehem.
16 And Noemi taking the child laid it in her bosom, and she carried it, and was a nurse unto it. 17 And the women her neighbours, congratulating with her and saying: There is a son born to Noemi: called his name Obed: he is the father of Isai, the father of David. 18 These are the generations of Phares: Phares begot Esron, 19 Esron begot Aram, Aram begot Aminadab, 20 Aminadab begot Nahasson, Nahasson begot Salmon,
21 Salmon begot Booz, Booz begot Obed, 22 Obed begot Isai, Isai begot David.
