Summer Bible Study: WordGo’s Study of Ruth: Week 3, Day 3: Ruth 3:5-9


Ruth follows Naomi’s instructions. Boaz wakes up in the middle of the night and asks her who she is. She says she is Ruth and asks him to spread his garment over her as he is her kinsman-redeemer.


6 ) Ruth follows Naomi’s instructions to the letter because she trusts and obeys her. I hope I follow God’s obedience and orders as well as Ruth does.

7 ) Boaz was sleeping at the threshing floor in order to guard the grain until he could move it. Thus, Boaz was probably startled to find Ruth and may have thought her a thief at first. What relief it was only Ruth!

8 ) Ruth asks Boaz to be her kinsman-redeemer, to take care of her and provide for her. She knows God is her provider and will take care of her all the days of her life. She has seen these same qualities in Boaz, too. Having faith that someone else can help provide for you is what marriage is all about.


I love looking at scripture in small chunks like in this Ruth bible study. Here, we see Ruth take the chance of asking Boaz to marry her. She is honest and forthright, and she trusts God to handle the details. It doesn’t ever seem like Ruth hesitates. She was probably scared, but she put one foot in front of the other in faith, which is how we should walk everyday in our walk with God. If you have questions, reach out to me today!
