Ruth’s clandestine night-time visit to Boaz

Naomi to Ruth: ‘Tonight, Boaz will be winnowing the barley at the threshing-floor. Come Ruth, wash and anoint yourself, put on your best clothes and go down to the threshing floor. But do not make yourself known to him until he has finished eating and drinking. Then, when he lies down… …go and uncover his feet and lie down.’
