Ruth 4:6-8 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

The close relative answered, “Then I cannot buy the land. If I do, I might lose my own land. So I cannot do it. You buy the land.” Then he gave Boaz something to show that he was serious. During that time in Israel, when people bought property, one person took off a sandal and gave it to the other person. This was like signing an agreement. So when the close relative said to Boaz, “You buy the land,” he took off his sandal and gave it to Boaz.[a]
