[B-Greek] On Ruth 2.15 LXX

I am struggling through the book of Ruth in my first foray into the
LXX, and have hit a snag. I could use some help on how the 3rd per.
sg. imperative is being used in 2.15:
kaiÇ eúneteiÖlato Boo§ toiÃ§ paidariÖoi§ aujtouv leÖgwn kaiÖ ge aînaÈ
meÖson tw×n dragmaÀtwn sullegeÖtw kaiÇ mh\ kataiscu/nhte aujth/n
It is 3rd person sing, but (at least to me) obviously directed at
toiÃ§ paidariÖoi§ . It almost seems to be functioning as a hortatory
imperative (instead of "let us," however, it would read "let her"
given the context of 2.14-15). Is this possible? Any help on how to
approach this translation? Thanks in advance.
