Ruth 1:16 (King James Version)

16. And Ruth said, Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God:

Daily Bible Verses 12
Ruth went and gleaned in Boaz’s field to provide food for herself and Naomi. When Boaz found out who she was, and how she stayed with Naomi after the death of her husband, he was impressed with her and called her a virtuous woman. Boaz gave Ruth special privileges.

Boaz was related to Naomi’s husband.

Ruth 2:1 (King James Version)

1. And Naomi had a kinsman of her husband's, a mighty man of wealth, of the family of Elimelech; and his name was Boaz.


When Naomi found out that Ruth had gleaned in Boaz’s field, and the privileges he gave to her, she then instructed Ruth on how to get Boaz to marry her. And Ruth followed all her instructions. Boaz actually purchased Naomi's husband and sons land from her, and Ruth came with the land.

Ruth 4:9-10, 13 (King James Version)

9. And Boaz said unto the elders, and unto all the people, Ye are witnesses this day, that I have bought all that was Elimelech's, and all that was Chilion's and Mahlon's, of the hand of Naomi.

10. Moreover Ruth the Moabitess, the wife of Mahlon, have I purchased to be my wife, to raise up the name of the dead upon his inheritance, that the name of the dead be not cut off from among his brethren, and from the gate of his place: ye are witnesses this day.

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.


Because of Naomi’s witness and Ruth’s choice to follow her, and to listen to her advice, Ruth had some famous people in her family tree.

Ruth 4:16, 17 & 22 (King James Version)

16. And Naomi took the child, and laid it in her bosom, and became nurse unto it.

17. And the women her neighbours gave it a name, saying, There is a son born to Naomi; and they called his name Obed: he is the father of Jesse, the father of David.

22. And Obed begat Jesse, and Jesse begat David.

Jesus Christ's was also of the family tree of Obed and Ruth. Joseph and Mary were both descendents of David, through his sons Solomon Matthew 1:5-16, and Nathan Luke 3:23-32. Joseph's name is used instead of Mary's.
