Ruth (2)

Resource Toolbox

Ruth, Book of. This beautiful narrative belongs to the period of the Judges. Ruth 1:1. The object of the writer was to trace the genealogy of David, and his descent from a Moabitish mother, who had been reduced to extreme poverty. The simplicity, integrity, and kind feelings of the principal persons exhibited are altogether remarkable; and the narrative shows that David had at least some ancestors who were nature's noblemen. 1 Chronicles 2:11-12. The writer of the book is not known, but the Hebrews ascribed it to Samuel.
