SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:3 Y murió Elimelec, marido de Noemí, y quedó ella con sus dos hijos;
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Ruth 1:3 Verse 3. Elimelech-died] Probably a short time after his arrival in Moab.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 3. And Elimelech, Naomi’s husband, died , etc.] According to Josephus f12 , after he had dwelt in the land ten years, and had married his two sons to Moabitish women; but, as Alshech observes, the text shows that while he was living they were not married to them, but after his death; and it is said of them only that they dwelt there about ten years; so that it is most probable that their father died quickly after he came into the land of Moab: and she was left, and her two sons; in a strange land, she without a husband, and they without a father.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-5 - Elimelech's care to provide for his family, was not to be blamed; but his removal into the country of Moab could not be justified. And the removal ended in the wasting of his family. It is folly to think of escaping that cross, which, being laid in our way, we ought to take up Changing our place seldom is mending it. Those who bring young people into bad acquaintance, and take them out of the way of publi ordinances, thought they may think them well-principled, and arme against temptation, know not what will be the end. It does not appea that the women the sons of Elimelech married, were proselyted to the Jewish religion. Earthly trials or enjoyments are of short continuance Death continually removes those of every age and situation, and mar all our outward comforts: we cannot too strongly prefer thos advantages which shall last for ever.
