Verse-by-Verse Bible Commentary

Ruth 3:5

 

 

She said to her, "All that you say I will do."

John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

And she said unto her,.... Having the highest opinion of her piety and prudence, and being confident she would never advise her to what was contrary to true religion and virtue:

all that thou sayest unto me I will do; observe every instruction and direction she gave her, and attend strictly to every circumstance pointed out to her, as she did; the word for "unto me" is one of those instances, the Masora observes, is not written but read; the letters of the word are not in the text, only the vowel points, the reason of which cannot well be said; what the MidrashF17Midrash Ruth, ut supra. (fol. 33. 3.) gives can never satisfy.

John Trapp Complete Commentary

Ruth 3:5 And she said unto her, All that thou sayest unto me I will do.

Ver. 5. All that thou sayest unto me I will do.] The respect Ruth bare to her mother-in-law, and the hope of a good husband, made her thus submissive. Lyra and Carthusian seem to blame the counsel of Naomi, though they excuse the fact of Ruth, because a stranger, and a new convert.

Matthew Poole's English Annotations on the Holy Bible

The confidence she had in Naomi’s wisdom and piety, and true love to her, made her ready to follow her advice, wherein she was the more excusable, because she did not understand the laws and customs of the country, as Naomi did.

Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers

(5) I will do.—Ruth’s obedience here is an intelligent obedience. She knew in what relation Boaz stood for her family, and the duties attaching to the relationship (Ruth 2:20; Ruth 3:9). Thus with obedient trust, implicitly but not blindly, she follows her mother-in-law’s orders; strong in conscious innocence she risks the obloquy that may attend her duty.
