Ruth 3:1-18
1. Then Noemi her mother-in-law said unto her: my daughter I will seek rest for thee, that thou mayst be in better case.
2. For now this Booz our kinsman with whose maidens thou wast, winnoweth his barley tonight in the threshing floor:
3. wash thyself therefore and anoint thee and put thy raiment upon thee, and get thee to the threshing floor. But let not the man be ware of thee, until he have left eating and drinking.
4. And when he goeth to sleep, mark the place where he layeth him down, and then go and lift up the clothes that are on his feet, and lay thee down and so he shall tell thee what thou shalt do.
5. And she answered her: all that thou biddest me I will do.
6. And so she went unto the floor, and did according to all that her mother-in-law bade her.
7. And when Booz had eaten and drunken and made him merry, he went and lay down by the side of the heap. And she came softly, and lift up the clothes of his feet, and laid her down.
8. And at midnight the man was afraid and groped. And behold: a woman lay at his feet.
9. Then he said what art thou and she answered, I am Ruth thine handmaid, spread thy mantle over thine handmaid, for thou art the next of the kin.
10. And then he said blessed be thou in the LORD my daughter, for thou hast shewed more goodness in the latter end, than at the beginning, inasmuch as thou followedst not young men, whether they were poor or rich.
11. And now my daughter fear not, I will do to thee all that thou requirest, for all the gates of my people know that thou art a woman of virtue.
12. And it is true that I am of thy next kin: howbeit, there is one nigher than I.
13. Tarry all night. And when morning is come if he will marry thee it is good, so let him do. But if he will not have thee, as sure as the LORD liveth I will have thee, lie still until the morning.
14. And so she lay at his feet until the morning. And she arose up before one could know another. And he said: let no man be ware, that there came any woman unto the threshing floor.
15. And he said: bring thy mantle that thou hadst upon thee and hold it up. And she held it up. And he mette in six measures of barley and laid it on her. And she gat her into the city:
16. and she came in to her mother-in-law which said: what tidings my daughter? And she told her all that the man had done to her.
17. And said thereto, these six measures of barley gave he me and said: thou shalt not go empty unto thy mother-in-law.
18. Then said she: my daughter sit still, until thou know how the matter will chance. For the man will not be in rest until he have finished the matter this same day.

Ruth 4:1-22
1. Then went Booz unto the gate and sat him down there: and behold, the kinsman of which Booz spake came by. Unto whom he said come and sit down here, and called him by his name. And he turned in and sat down.
2. Then he took ten men of the elders of the city and said, sit ye down here. And they sat down.
3. Then he said unto the kinsman: Noemi that is come again out of the country of Moab, will sell a parcel of land, which was our brother Elimelec's.
4. And I thought to do thee to wete and bid thee buy it before the inhabiters and elders of my people, if thou be disposed to challenge it: but and if thou wilt not purchase it, then tell me that I may wete it. For there is none to challenge it save thou, and I next thee. And the other answered I will purchase it.
5. Then said Booz, what day thou buyest the field of the hand of Noemi, thou must take also Ruth the Moabite the wife of the dead to stir up the name of the dead upon his inheritance.
6. Then said the kinsman, I can not purchase it for marrying of mine own inheritance: take thou my right to thee, for I can not purchase it.
7. Now this was the manner of old time in Israel concerning purchase and changing, for to establish all things: that a man must pluck off his shoe and give it his neighbour, and this was a witness in Israel.
8. And the kinsman said to Booz, buy it thou: and so drew off his shoe.
9. Then said Booz unto the elders and unto all the people ye are witnesses this day, that I have bought all that was Elimelec's, and all that was Chilion's and Mahalon's, of the hand of Noemi.
10. And moreover Ruth the Moabite the wife of Mahalon, do I take unto me to wife to stir up the name of the dead upon his inheritance, that his name be not put out from among his brethren, and from the gate of his city: ye are witnesses this day.
11. And all the people that were in the gate, and the elders said we are witnesses: the LORD make the woman that is come into thine house like Rahel and Lea, which twain did build the house of Israel: that she may do virtuously in Ephrathah, and be famous in Bethlehem,
12. and that thine house be like the house of Pharez, whom Thamar bare unto Juda, even of the seed which the LORD shall give thee of this young woman.
13. And so Booz took Ruth, and she was his wife. And he went in unto her, and the LORD gave that she conceived and bare a son.
14. And the women said unto Noemi: blessed be the LORD the which hath not left thee without an heir this day that shall have a name in Israel,
15. and that shall bring thy life again and cherish thine old age. For thy daughter-in-law which loveth thee hath borne him that is better to thee than seven sons.
16. And Noemi took the child and laid it in her lap, and became nurse unto it.
17. And her neighbours gave it a name saying: there is a child borne to Noemi, and called it Obed: he is the father of Isai, the father of David.
18. This is the generation of Pharez: Pharez begat Hezron:
19. Hezron begat Ram, Ram begat Aminadab,
20. Aminadab begat Nahason, Nahason begat Salmon,
21. Salmon begat Booz, Booz begat Obed,
22. Obed begat Isai, Isai begat David. [Thus endeth the book of Ruth.]

Psalms 52:6-9
6. The righteous shall see this, and fear, and laugh him to scorn.
7. Lo, this is the man, that took not God for his strength, but trusted unto the multitude of his riches, and was mighty in his wickedness.
8. As for me, I am like a green olive tree in the house of God, my trust is in the tender mercy of God for ever and ever.
9. I will alway give thanks unto thee, for that thou hast done: and will hope in thy name, for thy saints like it well.

Proverbs 15:6-7
6. In the house of the righteous are great riches, but in the increase of the ungodly there is misorder.(misordre)
7. A wise mouth poureth out knowledge, but the heart of the foolish doth not so.

Luke 20:1-26
1. And it fortuned in one of those days; As he taught the people in the temple; And preached the gospel.(gospell) The high priests and the scribes came unto him with the seniors;(elders)
2. And spake unto him, saying: Tell us by what authority thou doest these things? Other(Either) who is he that gave thee this authority?
3. He answered and said unto them: I also will ask you a question,(ask you a word also) and answer me:
4. was the baptism of John,(The baptism of John: was it) from heaven, or of men?
5. (And) They thought within themselves saying: If we shall say from heaven: he will say: Why then believed ye him not?
6. But and if we shall say of men, all the people will stone us. For they surely believe(be persuaded) that John was(is) a prophet.
7. And they answered that they could not tell whence it was.
8. And Jesus said unto them: Neither tell I you by what authority I do these things.
9. Then began he to put forth to(tell) the people, this similitude: A certain man planted a vineyard, and let it forth to farmers,(out unto husbandmen) and went himself into a strange country for a great season.
10. And when the time came,(was come) he sent a servant to his tenants(husbandmen) that they should give him of the fruits, of the vineyard. (And) The tenants(husbandmen) (did) beat him: and sent him away empty.
11. And (again) he ceased not thereby but sent yet another servant. And they (did) beat him, and foul(shamefully) entreated him also, and sent him away empty.
12. Moreover, he sent the third Also;(too) And him they wounded, and cast him out.
13. Then said the lord of the vineyard: what shall I do? I will send my dear son, him peradventure they will reverence,(stand in awe of him) when they see him.
14. (But) When the farmers saw him,(husbandmen saw the son) they thought in themselves, saying: this is the heir, come let us kill him, that the inheritance may be ours.
15. And they cast him out of the vineyard, and killed him. Now what shall the lord of the vineyard do unto them?
16. He will come and destroy those farmers,(husbandmen) and will let out his vineyard to other. When they heard that, they said: God forbid.
17. (And) He beheld them and said: what meaneth this then that is written: The stone that the builders refused, (the same) is made(become) the head cornerstone?
18. whosoever stumble at that(falleth upon this) stone, shall be bruised:(broken:)(broken in sunder) but on whosoever it fall, (upon) it will also break him.(grind him to powder.)
19. And the high priests and the scribes, the same hour went about to lay hands on him, but they feared the people. For they perceived that he had spoken this similitude against them.
20. And they watched him, and sent forth spies, which should feign themselves perfect, to(that they might) take him in his words, and to deliver him unto the power, and authority of the president.(debite.)
21. And they asked him saying: Master, we know that thou sayest, and teachest right, neither considerest thou any man's degree,(regardest the outward appearance of no man) but teachest the way of God truly.
22. Is it lawful for us to give Cesar(the Emperour) tribute, or no?
23. He perceived their craftiness, and said unto them: Why tempt ye me?
24. Shew me a penny. Whose image and superscription hath it? They answered and said: Cesar's.(the Emperour's)
25. And he said unto them: Give then unto Cesar,(the Emperour) that which belongeth unto Cesar:(the Eperour) And to God, that which pertaineth to God.
26. And they could not reprove his saying before the people. And(But) they marveled at his answer, and held their peace.
