SEV Biblia, Chapter 4:13 Â¶ Y así Booz tomó a Rut, y ella fue su mujer; y luego que entró a ella, el SEÑOR le dio que concibiese y diese a luz un hijo.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Ruth 4:13 Verse 13. So Boaz took Ruth] The law of Moses had prohibited the Moabites, even to the tenth generation, from entering into the congregation of the Lord; but this law, the Jews think, did not extend to women; and even if it had, Ruth's might be considered an exempt case, as she had been already incorporated into the family by marriage; and left her own country, people, and gods, to become a proselyte to the true God in the land of Israel.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 13. So Boaz took Ruth, and she was his wife , etc.] Without any other rites or ceremonies than what are here expressed; for as yet the rites and ceremonies now in use with the Jews f78 , in marriages had not obtained: and when he went in unto her; which is a modest expression of the conjugal duty performed him: the Lord gave her conception ; for this is of God, let the circumstance of the person, as to age, be as it may: and she bare a son ; at the year’s end, as Josephus relates, Ver. 14 . And the women said unto Naomi , etc.] The inhabitants of Bethlehem, as they fell into her company; or perhaps these were the women that were called to the labour of Ruth, and attended the birth of the child: blessed be the Lord, which hath not left thee this day without a kinsman ; a grandchild born to her that day. In Moab she was bereaved of her husband and of two sons; but now she is not left without a relation, a kinsman, and a redeemer, for which the women blessed God, and stirred her up to do the same. Alshech observes, that the women said, blessed be the Lord, because from him would spring the Messiah of the Lord, as did. Some refer this to Boaz, to whom the name of kinsman, or redeemer, more properly belonged; and who appeared to have done the office and duty of such an one, by redeeming the estate of his kinsman, and marrying his widow, the effect of which was, that a son was born, who would be heir of the estate; but the text speaks of what was done that day, and what is after said in the next verse all relates to the child born: that his name may be famous in Israel ; some refer this to the name of God, by whose providence this was brought about; others to Boaz, who was well spoken of for his charity, integrity, and humility, shown in redeeming the estate, and taking Ruth to wife; or rather it refers to the newborn child, of whom they express their hope and confidence, that when he came to man’s estate would be very famous and honourable in Israel, being a worthy and virtuous man himself, and the progenitor of such illustrious persons as Jesse, David, etc. and even of the Messiah.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 13-22 - Ruth bore a son, through whom thousands and myriads were born to God and in being the lineal ancestor of Christ, she was instrumental in the happiness of all that shall be saved by him; even of us Gentiles, a well as those of Jewish descent. She was a witness for God to the Gentile world, that he had not utterly forsaken them, but that in du time they should become one with his chosen people, and partake of his salvation. Prayer to God attended the marriage, and praise to his attended the birth of the child. What a pity it is that pious languag should not be more used among Christians, or that it should be let fal into formality! Here is the descent of David from Ruth. And the perio came when Bethlehem-Judah displayed greater wonders than those in the history of Ruth, when the outcast babe of another forlorn female of the same race appeared, controlling the counsels of the Roman master of the world, and drawing princes and wise men from the east, with treasure of gold, and frankincense, and myrrh to his feet. His name shall endur for ever, and all nations shall call Him blessed. In that Seed shal all the nations of the earth be blessed __________________________________________________________________
