Ruth 4:13-15

  1. Ruth 4:13-15
    King James Version (KJV)
    13 So Boaz took Ruth, and she was his wife: and when he went in unto her, the Lord gave her conception, and she bare a son.
    14 And the women said unto Naomi, Blessed be the Lord, which hath not left thee this day without a kinsman, that his name may be famous in Israel.
    15 And he shall be unto thee a restorer of thy life, and a nourisher of thine old age: for thy daughter in law, which loveth thee, which is better to thee than seven sons, hath born him.
    An American English Bible
    13 So, Boaz took Ruth and she became his woman. Then he [slept with] her and she became pregnant and gave birth to a son. 14 And she said to NaOmi: 'May Jehovah be praised, because He didn't rest until He provided a son for you today. May [this son] speak your name in IsraEl, 15 and may he restore life and nourishment to your grey hair; for, your daughter-in-law has given birth to a good child who is better than seven sons.'

    These are my thoughts, please share yours.

    13 This was the main purpose of this part of the law so that widows could bare children or an heir to care for them. Boaz did this not only because it was required by the law but he wanted to marry her. Christ wanted to be joined with us and so He came from heaven to die so we can be joined to Him by our faith in Him.

    14 Naomi was perhaps at the age where child bearing would not be normal and be very hard but by Ruth she can be cared for. Christ took care of us and will never leave us. Naomi did not think it was possible but by Ruth the family will continue.

    15 Ruth cared for Naomi and because of this she would be cared for. Christ did all the work for us and will care for us. He allows us what we need in life.
