4:13 So Boaz married Ruth and had sexual relations with her. 1 The Lord enabled her to conceive 2 and she gave birth to a son. 4:14 The village women said to Naomi, “May the Lord be praised because he has not left you without a guardian 3 today! May he 4 become famous in Israel! 5 4:15 He will encourage you and provide for you when you are old, 6 for your daughter-in-law, who loves you, has given him birth. She 7 is better to you than seven sons!” 4:16 Naomi took the child and placed him on her lap; 8 she became his caregiver. 9 4:17 The neighbor women named him, saying, “A son has been born to Naomi.” They named him Obed. 10 Now he became the father of Jesse – David’s father!
[4:13] 1 tn Heb “and Boaz took Ruth and she became his wife and he went in to her.” Here the phrase “went in to her” (so NASB) is a euphemism for having sexual relations (cf. NCV); NLT “When he slept with her.”
