This book is called the Book of Ruth, because her history is chiefly related in it, namely, how she, by occasion of her first marriage to the son of Elimelech was converted from pagan idolatry to the true religion, and further being come with her mother in law Naomi, out of the land of the Moabites to Bethlehemjudah, was married by a wonderful providence of God to Boaz, and so (notwithstanding that she was of pagan descent) became the great-grandmother of David, and consequently also the mother of our Lord and Savior JESUS CHRIST, according to the flesh, for a mirror of God’s incomprehensible grace, and a type of the calling of the Gentiles to the fellowship of our Lord CHRIST, the promised Seed. This history belongs to the reign of the judges, mentioned in the foregoing book, happening in a time of famine and dearth in Israel. Some are of the opinion, that Ruth came to Bethlehem about the year 2730 from Creation, under judge Tola, when certain years before, Israel was brought into great distress and want of all things by the Midianites, as is related in Judges 6:4.
