Deuteronomy 21:19; Ruth 4:1–2; Psalm 127:5

19 then his father and his mother shall take hold of him and bring him out to the elders of his city at the gate of the place where he lives,


Boaz Redeems Ruth

Now Boaz had gone up to xthe gate and sat down there. And behold, ythe redeemer, of whom Boaz had spoken, came by. So Boaz said, Turn aside, friend; sit down here. And he turned aside and sat down. And he took ten men zof the elders of the city and said, Sit down here. So they sat down.


Blessed is the man

who fills his quiver with them!

He shall not be put to shame

when he speaks with his enemies ein the gate.1
