SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:4 los cuales tomaron para sí mujeres de Moab, el nombre de una era Orfa, y el nombre de la otra, Rut; y habitaron allí como diez años.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Ruth 1:4 Verse 4. And they took them wives] The Targum very properly observes, that they transgressed the decree of the word of the Lord, and took to themselves strange women.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 4. And they took them wives of the women of Moab , etc.] Not before they were proselyted to the Jewish religion, as Aben Ezra thinks, and which seems plainly to be the case of Ruth; at least she was so afterwards, if not before; and also of Orpah, as the same writer concludes from ( Ruth 1:15) though others are of a different opinion, and some excuse their marriage, and others condemn it as unlawful, among whom is the Targumist, who paraphrases the words, “and they transgressed the decree of the Word of the Lord, and took to them strange wives of the daughters of Moab;” however it was so permitted by the Lord, and ordered in Providence, that from one of them the Messiah might spring: and the name of the one was Orpah ; she was married to Chilion; and Alshech gathers from hence that the youngest was married first before his brother: and the name of the other Ruth the Targum adds, “the daughter of Eglon, king of Moab;” and that she was his daughter, or the daughter of his son, is a notion commonly received with the Jews though without any just foundation; she was married to Mahlon, ( Ruth 4:10), one Philo asserts these two women to be own sisters, for what reason does not appear; and a Jewish writer says they were both daughters of Eglon, king of Moab: and they dwelt there about ten years; that is, Mahlon and Chilion, who married these women; which is to be reckoned either from the time they came into the land, or from the time of their marriage; the latter seems to be the case from the connection of the words.
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.
