Ruth 4:18-22 King James Version 18 Now these are the generations of Pharez: Pharez begat Hezron, 19 And Hezron begat Ram, and Ram begat Amminadab, 20 And Amminadab begat Nahshon, and Nahshon begat Salmon, 21 And Salmon begat Boaz, and Boaz begat Obed, 22 And Obed begat Jesse, and Jesse begat David. An American English Bible With Old Testament based on the Greek Septuagint 18 Now, these are the descendants of Perez: · Perez fathered HezRon · 19 HezRon fathered Aram · Aram fathered AmiNadab · 20 AmiNadab fathered NaShon · NaShon fathered SalMon · 21 SalMon fathered Boaz · Boaz fathered Obed · 22 Obed fathered JesSe · JesSe fathered David. These are my thoughts, please share yours. That line starts with Perez the son of Judah a gentile woman named Tamar. He was the grandson of Jacob also known as Israel. Heron was the youngest to leave Canaan to go to Egypt in Genesis. He was Perez’s eldest son. Ram is also known as Aram. Amminadah was born during the exile. Nahshon was a chief to the tribe of Judah and was the brother in law to Aaron and was the father in the law to Rehab the harlot. Salmon was the man who married Rehab. We learn the most about Boaz thru this book. Obed was the child of Boaz and Ruth. Jesse was the father a David and was a farmer and shepherd. David would be the second king of Israel and would be the first of the line of kings that would not end but continue thru Jesus Christ, the king whose reign will never end.
