    King James Bible - Ruth 4:8

    Therefore the kinsman said unto Boaz, Buy it for thee. So he drew off his shoe.

    World English Bible

    So the near kinsman said to Boaz, "Buy it for yourself." He took off his
    shoe.

    Douay-Rheims - Ruth 4:8

    So Booz said to his kinsman: Put off thy
    shoe. And immediately he took it off from his foot.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    Therefore the kinsman said to Boaz, Buy it for thyself. So he drew off his
    shoe.

    Original Hebrew

    ויאמר
    559 הגאל 1350 לבעז 1162 קנה 7069 לך  וישׁלף 8025  נעלו׃ 5275  

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 4:8

    Entonces el pariente dijo a Booz: Tómalo tú. Y diciendo esto descalzó su zapato.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 8. And therefore the kinsman said unto
    Boaz, buy it for me , etc.] Which is repeated to show he gave his full consent to it, that he should make the purchase of it if he pleased, and which he confirmed by the following rite: so he drew off his shoe ; thereby signifying that he relinquished his right to the purchase of the estate, and ceded it to him; the Targum has it, “and Boaz drew off the glove off his right hand, and bought it of him;” and so Aben Ezra, “and Boaz drew off his shoe, and gave it to his kinsman,” as if this was some acknowledgment for yielding his right unto him; and about this there is a great dissension among the Jewish writers f75 ; one says it was the shoe of Boaz that was plucked off; another says it was the shoe of the kinsman; which latter seems most correct: and it may be observed, that this custom is different from what is enjoined ( Deuteronomy 25:6-11) there the woman was to pluck off the shoe of him that refused to marry her, but here the man plucked off his own shoe, who chose not to redeem; nor is there mention of spitting in his face; nor does it appear that Ruth did the one or the other; though Josephus affirms it, and says, that she both plucked off his shoe, and spit in his face; neither of which are mentioned.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-8 - This matter depended on the
    laws given by Moses about inheritances, an doubtless the whole was settled in the regular and legal manner. Thi kinsman, when he heard the conditions of the bargain, refused it. I like manner many are shy of the great redemption; they are not willin to espouse religion; they have heard well of it, and have nothing to say against it; they will give it their good word, but they are willin to part with it, and cannot be bound to it, for fear of marring their own inheritance in this world. The right was resigned to Boaz. Fair an open dealing in all matters of contract and trade, is what all mus make conscience of, who would approve themselves true Israelites without guile. Honesty will be found the best policy.
