Bible Commentary for Ruth 3:11

Wesley's Notes for Ruth 3:11


3:9 Spread thy Skirt - That is, take me to be thy wife, and perform the duty of an husband to me.

3:10 Shewed kindness - Both to thy deceased husband, the continuance of whose name and memory thou seekest; and to thy mother - in - law, whose commands thou hast punctually obeyed. Followedst not - To seek thy marriage here, or in thy own country, as thou wouldst have done if thou hadst not preferred obedience to God's command, before pleasing thyself.

3:13 Perform, &c. - Take thee to wife, to raise up seed to his brother. Bishop Hall sums up the matter thus. Boaz, instead of touching her as a wanton, blesseth her as a father, encourages her as a friend, promises her as a kinsman, rewards her as a patron, and sends her away laden with hopes and gifts, no less chast, but more happy than she came. O admirable temperance, worthy the progenitor of him, in whose lips and heart there was no guile!
