Bible Commentary for Ruth 2:3

Wesley's Notes for Ruth 2:3


2:3 Her hap - It was a chance in reference to second causes, but ordered by God's providence. God wisely orders small events, even those that seem altogether contingent. Many a great affair is brought about by a little turn, fortuitous as to men, but designed by God.
