As an alternative, it seems like this might be a good place to use
"<reference osisRef="Ruth.4.15">15</reference>" since it is, essentially,
a reference.

It's definitely not an error though; I've seen these in a few print &
electronic editions before.  They're used to indicate verse boundaries
within footnotes that quote across them.  By that token, I guess you could
use something like "<catchWord><seg osisRef="Ruth.4.14">We pray . . .
</seg><seg osisRef="Ruth.4.15">He will</seg></catchWord>" if you want to 
drop the number and insert it with a stylesheet later.  But either the 
<reference> or Patrick's solution seem more intuitive.
