Page 33 Moses' Wives Israel's birth as a nation, according to the Bible, took place at the exodus from Egypt under Moses. When Israel was a child I loved him, And out of Egypt I called my son.  In fact, the very name "Hebrew" seems originally to have designated a socioeconomic class rather than an ethnic group.  But she, like so many others, was incorporated as part of the nation.  While the story does not address either question directly, its plot does suggest related answers to both.  They are also not likely Mesopotamians, since the story deals with Judah and its nearby neighbors.

Then she is to "uncover his feet" (or "legs") and lie down until he directs her what to do (3:4).  Or is the significance of Ruth's actions based on some other custom?  Neither Boaz nor the nearer kinsman mentioned in 3:12 are brothers to Ruth's dead husband, yet each is called a "redeemer" (Hebrew go'el).  Ruth's unselfish love shines through.  Naomi's respect for and confidence in Boaz is apparent in her final statement to Ruth in this scene that he will not rest until he has settled the matter that very day (3:18).

This was one of the strains of exclusivism that were present in ancient Israel, in spite of the lessons about God's universal love in Genesis. Page 24 Our task will be to try to set it in its historical, cultural, and literary context.  In his speeches he tells the people how they are to take the land and then live in it according to the law that they have received from God.  Then, both here and in subsequent chapters, we will explore the responses to it within the Bible itself.  Only the valuable metals—gold, silver, and bronze—are retained for deposit into the treasury for Yahweh (7:19), for they also belong to Yahweh.
