Summer Bible Study: WordGo’s Study of Ruth: Week 4, Day 1: Ruth 4


Boaz heads to the town gate to wait for the closer kinsman-redeemer. When he appears, Boaz asks him to join him in a meeting with 10 elders of the town. He asks the kinsman-redeemer if he will redeem Naomi’s husband’s property. If not, he will. The man says he will redeem it. However, Boaz then tells him with the property come Naomi and Ruth.

The man changes his mind, saying he might endanger his own estate. Consequently, the man then took off his sandal in order to legalize the transaction. Boaz announces that he will redeem the property belonging to Naomi that was her husband’s and her sons’ and that he will take Ruth for his wife in order to maintain the name of the dead with the property.

The elders stood as witnesses and blessed his marriage to Ruth. As a result, Ruth had a son named Obed who was the father of Jesse and then David.


1 ) Those who seek God and follow God are rewarded with goodness. Both Naomi and Ruth had a heart for God, so God gave them the ultimate gift — ancestors of Jesus and a great life. God rewards all of us who seek him earnestly.

2 ) God works for our good. Life is good and full of joy, as are everything and everyone around us. It’s remembering how good God is in the times of sorrow that can get you through life.


Great lesson on how God works for our good in all things. I love how Boaz and Ruth live happily ever after, as does Naomi. Classic love tale that everyone loves with a happy ending and blessings all around. God’s rewards are rich, and we all are able to partake in them. Faith, love, hope, and compassion reign with God.
