|Ruth Exposition: Index | Introduction to the book of Ruth | Ruth 1 | Ruth 2 | Ruth 3 | Ruth 4|
There is scarcely any chapter in all the sacred history that stoops so low as this to take cognizance of so mean a person as Ruth, a poor Moabitish widow, so mean an action as her gleaning corn in a neighbour's field, and the minute circumstances thereof. But all this was in order to her being grafted into the line of Christ and taken in among his ancestors, that she might be a figure of the espousals of the Gentile church to Christ, Isa. liv. 1. This makes the story remarkable; and many of the passages of it are instructive and very improvable. Here we have, I. Ruth's humility and industry in gleaming corn, Providence directing her to Boaz's field, ver. 1-3. II. The great favour which Boaz showed to her in many instances, ver. 4-16. III. The return of Ruth to her mother-in-law, ver. 18-23.
