WHY RUTH MARRIED RAHAB’S SON

“The LORD recompense thy work, and a full reward be given thee of the LORD God of Israel, under Whose wings thou art come to trust.” (RUTH 2:12)

A bachelor, long past his youth,
Named Boaz, wed a widow, named Ruth;
Though risks it did pose,
The real God she chose;
For, like Rahab, she left all for Truth.

COMMENTARY: Matthew 1:5; Ruth 1:16 & 2:11-12.  (Of course, the Truth is — as Old Testament believers ultimately learned — the Lord Jesus Christ, Who Himself alone is “the Way, the Truth, and the Life”, and no one comes to the Father except through Him.
