Ruth 4:1 New International Version

Boaz Marries Ruth

4 1  Meanwhile Boaz went up to the town gate and sat down there just as the guardian-redeemer[1] he had mentioned came along. Boaz said, "Come over here, my friend, and sit down." So he went over and sat down.


[1] 4:1 The Hebrew word for "guardian-redeemer" is a legal term for one who has the obligation to redeem a relative in serious difficulty (see Lev. 25:25-55); also in verses 3, 6, 8 and 14.
