  1. Ruth 2:11-13
    KJV(i) 11 And Boaz answered and said unto her, It hath fully been showed me, all that thou hast done unto thy mother in law since the death of thine husband: and how thou hast left thy father and thy mother, and the land of thy nativity, and art come unto a people which thou knewest not heretofore. 12 The LORD recompense thy work, and a full reward be given thee of the LORD God of Israel, under whose wings thou art come to trust. 13 Then she said, Let me find favor in thy sight, my lord; for that thou hast comforted me, and for that thou hast spoken friendly unto thine handmaid, though I be not like unto one of thine handmaidens.
    NSB(i) 11 Boaz answered: »I have heard about everything you have done for your mother-in-law after the death of your husband. You went away from your father and mother and the land of your birth, and came to a people who are strange to you. 12 »May Jehovah reward you for what you have done. May you have a full reward from Jehovah the God of Israel, to whom you have come for protection!« 13 Ruth answered: »You are very kind to me, sir. You make me feel better by speaking gently to me, even though I do not even have the standing of one of your servants.«

    These are my thoughts, please share yours.

    11 Boaz keep watch of Ruth, we are kept watch by the one who is our kinsmen redeemer, Jesus. This was amazing what Ruth had done she went to a place she had not been before; Christ did this for us coming down to earth and living as a man. Ruth showed a walk that many Moabites would not show faith. We should be as Ruth and love one another as she did and as Christ loves.

    12 The Lord will repay our work, a place where it will never fade away. The Lord is our first reward and salvation but there our many blessings that come from following the Lord. The Lord is our refuge and strength.

    13 She showed humility. We should be humble and do what is right not to be thanked but because it pleases the Lord. Ruth knew how blessed she truly was and we should as well, this is where our humility will come.
  2. I am not sure what you are asking Clark. Is it that differant ranslations say different things?

    You really did not state your thoughts, you only posted different translations?
  3. I posted two translations and then posted my thoughts below the scripture.
