1 { Ruth “In The Light of God’s Plan of Redemption”




5 “Don’t ask me to leave you and turn back. Wherever you go, I will go; wherever you live, I will live. Your people will be my people, and your God will be my God. 17 Wherever you die, I will die, and there I will be buried. May YaHWeH punish me severely if I allow anything but death to separate us!” Ruth 1:16-17

6 22 So Naomi returned from Moab, accompanied by her daughter-in- law Ruth...They arrived in Bethlehem in late spring, at the beginning of the barley harvest.

7 12 May YaHWeH, the God of Israel, under whose wings you have come to take refuge, reward you fully for what you have done.” Ruth 2:12

8 virtuous 11 Now don’t worry about a thing, my daughter. I will do what is necessary, for everyone in town knows you are a virtuous woman. (“chayil” – excellence, noble character, capable, truly good) Ruth 3:11 AMP “…for all my people in the city know that you are a woman of strength (worth, bravery, capability).” Ruth 3:11


10 9 Then Boaz said to the elders and to the crowd standing around, “You are witnesses that today I have bought from Naomi all the property of Elimelech, Kilion, and Mahlon. 10 And with the land I have acquired Ruth, the Moabite widow of Mahlon, to be my wife. This way she can have a son to carry on the family name of her dead husband Ruth 4:9-10

11 and to inherit the family property here in his hometown. You are all witnesses today.” 11 Then the elders and all the people standing in the gate replied, “We are witnesses! Ruth 4:10-11

12 “May YaHWeH make this woman who is coming into your home like Rachel and Leah, from whom all the nation of Israel descended! May you prosper in Ephrathah.” Ruth 4:11


14 19 So Rachel died and was buried on the way to Ephrath (that is, Bethlehem). 20 Jacob set up a pillar over her grave; that is the pillar of Rachel’s grave to this day. Genesis 35:19–20 (NASB95)

15 12 And may YaHWeH give you descendants by this young woman who will be like those of our ancestor Perez, the son of Tamar and Judah.” Genesis 38:26 “She is more righteous than I am, because I didn’t arrange for her to marry my son Shelah.” Ruth 4:12

16 There are many parallels between Boaz and Ruth and Judah and Tamar. Ruth and Tamar were both foreigners who had married into Israel. The first husbands of both women died leaving them widows. Both women participated in levirate marriages. In both cases the husbands were considerably older than the wives. Both women, however, bore sons in the Davidic messianic line. Tamar bore Perez, and Ruth bore Obed. Tom Constable

17 14 Then the women of the town said to Naomi, “Praise YaHWeH, who has now provided a redeemer for your family!... 16 Naomi took the baby and cuddled him to her breast. And she cared for him as if he were her own. 17 The neighbor women said, “Now at last Naomi has a son again!” And they named him Obed. He became the father of Jesse and the grandfather of David. Ruth 4:11-17

18 To some, the book of Ruth may be just a nice story about a girl who was fortunate. But in reality, the events recorded in Ruth were part of God’s preparations for the births of David and of Jesus, the promised Messiah. Just as Ruth was unaware of this larger purpose in her life, we will not know the full purpose and importance of our lives until we are able to look back from the perspective of eternity. We must make our choices with God’s eternal values in mind. Life Application Bible

19 Taking moral shortcuts and living for short-range pleasures are not good ways to move ahead. Because of Ruth’s faithful obedience, her life and legacy were significant even though she couldn’t see all the results. Live in faithfulness to God, knowing that the significance of your life will extend beyond your lifetime. The rewards will outweigh any sacrifice you may have made. Life Application Bible

20 18 This is the genealogical record of their ancestor Perez: Perez was the father of Hezron. 19 Hezron was the father of Ram. Ram was the father of Amminadab. 20 Amminadab was the father of Nahshon. Nahshon was the father of Salmon. 21 Salmon was the father of Boaz. Boaz was the father of Obed. 22 Obed was the father of Jesse. Jesse was the father of David. Ruth 4:18-22

21 Perez and Zerah by Tamar 3 “Judah was the father of Perez and Zerah by Tamar, Perez was the father of Hezron, and Hezron the father of Ram. 4 Ram…Amminadab…Nahshon… 5 Salmon was the father of Boaz by Rahab, Boaz was the father of Obed by Ruth, and Obed the father of Jesse. 6 Jesse was the father of David the king…” Matthew 1:3–6 (NASB95)


23 This genealogy is not intended to be complete. Salmon lived at the beginning of the period of the judges, and David was not born until the beginning of the period of the kings, a span of almost 400 years. Names are often deliberately omitted in biblical genealogies. Rahab lived in Joshua’s time, about 250– 300 years earlier. Probably, then, Rahab was Boaz’s “mother” in the sense that she was his ancestress. John Reed William McDonald

24 17 “For YaHWeH your God is the God of gods and Lords of lords, the great, the mighty, and the awesome God who does not show partiality nor take a bribe. 18 “He executes justice for the orphan and the widow, and shows His love for the alien by giving him food and clothing. Deuteronomy 10:17–18 (NASB95)

25 And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed 1 Now YaHWeH said to Abram, “Go forth from your country, And from your relatives And from your father’s house, To the land which I will show you; 2 And I will make you a great nation, And I will bless you, And make your name great; And so you shall be a blessing; 3 And I will bless those who bless you, And the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed.” Genesis 12:1–3 (NASB95)

26 “You will do more than restore the people of Israel to me. I will make you a light to the Gentiles, and you will bring my salvation to the ends of the earth.” 5 And now YaHWeH speaks— the one who formed me in my mother’s womb to be his servant, who commissioned me to bring Israel back to him. YaHWeH has honored me, and my God has given me strength. 6 He says, “You will do more than restore the people of Israel to me. I will make you a light to the Gentiles, and you will bring my salvation to the ends of the earth.” Isaiah 49:5–6 (NLT)

27 Ruth was a Moabitess, but that didn’t stop her from worshiping the true God, nor did it stop God from accepting her worship and blessing her greatly. The Jews were not the only people God loves. He chose the Jews to be the people through whom the rest of the world would come to know Him. This was fulfilled when Jesus Christ was born as a Jew. Through him, the entire world can come to know God. Life Application Bible

28 in every nation anyone who fears Him and does what is right is acceptable to Him. 34 So Peter opened his mouth and said: “Truly I understand that God shows no partiality, 35 but in every nation anyone who fears Him and does what is right is acceptable to Him. Acts 10:34–35 (ESV)

29 “God’s hand is all over history. God works out His purpose, generation after generation. Limited as we are to one lifetime, each of us sees so little of what happens. A genealogy is a striking way of bringing before us the continuity of God’s purpose through the ages. The process of history is not haphazard. There is a purpose in it all. And the purpose is the purpose of God.” Kidner

30 4 “Behold, all souls are Mine; the soul of the father as well as the soul of the son is Mine. The soul who sins will die. Romans 6:23 Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Ezekiel 18:4 (NASB95)

31 4 But when the fullness of the time came, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the Law, 5 so that He might redeem (“buy out of the slave market”) those who were under the Law, that we might receive the adoption as sons. Galatians 4:4–5 (NASB95)

32 5 “For your husband is your Maker, Whose name is the L ORD of hosts; And your Redeemer (“Goel” – kinsman redeemer) is the Holy One of Israel, Who is called the God of all the earth… 8 “…But with everlasting lovingkindness I will have compassion on you,” Says YaHWeH your Redeemer (“Goel”). Isaiah 54:5-8 (NASB95)

33 13 For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, 14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. Colossians 1:13–14 (NIV84)

34 7 In Him (Jesus) we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace 8 that He lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding. Ephesians 1:7–8 (NIV84)

35 22 We are made right with God by placing our faith in Jesus Christ. And this is true for everyone who believes, no matter who we are. 23 For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. 24 Yet God, with undeserved kindness, declares that we are righteous. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed(*) us from the penalty for our sins. 25 For God presented Jesus as the sacrifice for sin. People are made right with God when they believe that Jesus sacrificed His life, shedding His blood. Romans 3:22–25 (NLT)

36 agorazo "to buy", denoting to "buy out". From “agora”; to go or frequent the market, to purchase; specially, to redeem, buy.

37 For you have been bought with a price 18 Flee immorality… 19 Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? 20 For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body…7:23 You were bought with a price; do not become slaves of men. 1 Corinthians 6:18–20 (NASB95)

38 redeemed us to God by Your blood “You are worthy to take the scroll, And to open its seals; For You were slain, and have redeemed us to God by Your blood Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation… “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain To receive power and riches and wisdom, And strength and honor and glory and blessing!” Revelation 5
