And the name of the man was
Elimelech, and the name of his wife Naomi, and the name of his two sons Mahlon and Chilion, Ephrathites of Bethlehemjudah. And they came into the country of Moab, and continued there.
And Mahlon and Chilion died also both of them; and the woman was left of her two sons and her husband.
And Boaz said unto the elders, and unto
all the people, Ye are
witnesses this day, that I have bought all that was
Elimelech's, and all that was
Chilion's and Mahlon's, of the hand of Naomi.
Moreover Ruth the Moabitess, the wife of Mahlon, have I purchased to be my wife, to raise up the name of the dead upon his inheritance, that the name of the dead be not cut off from among his brethren, and from the gate of his place: ye are
witnesses this day.
