Ruth was an Israelite Biblical proof and Maps that leave no stone unturned.
Ruth was an Israelite, and according to the Holy Bible that is a fact. She lived in the “Country of Moab” and was born and raised there. Just like African Americans and other are citizens of the USA. This topic about Sister Ruth has caused many heated debates about her lineage and more.
Ive seen brothers almost come to blows over trying to prove either side. We here at True Israelite will endeavor to uncover the historical and Biblical layers of truth that you ONLY get if you actually read Precept upon Precept. 1 Thessalonians 5:21 says plainly prove all things and that is exactly what we plan to do. After this in depth cutting edge knowledge filled breakdown you will see BEYOND a shadow of a doubt who Ruth the Moabite was.
UPDATE 2020 = Since I first made this article some new passages have come to my attention via the holy ghost that were not in the original article. What I am going to do is post that information here then we will go through the entire breakdown. Although this site was hacked because people hate the truth you cannot stop the truth. Now we are back swinging the truth bat as hard as we can.
When you talk about the subject of Ruth the Moabite you MUST talk about the war as stated below. YOU CANNOT STAY IN THE BOOK OF RUTH to prove who she is. The father said PRECEPT MUST be upon precept and with this new information that was not in the first article it shall help your learning.
We start in Deuteronomy the second book of the law or the book of recap and review. Moses left us a clue about where Ruth lived and what really happened in the War of Moab and Amorites.
These are the words of the covenant, which the LORD commanded Moses to make with the children of Israel in the land of Moab, beside the covenant which he made with them in Horeb.
((So you can see where they are plainly This is right before Moses died))
Deuteronomy 32:48:49 (Precept for the location)
And the LORD spake unto Moses that selfsame day, saying,
49Get thee up into this mountain Abarim, unto mount Nebo, which is in the land of Moab, that is over against Jericho; and behold the land of Canaan, which I give unto the children of Israel for a possession:
I brought up this point of reference first because I wanted to show you the geographical location of that day where the Israelites are camped. They are right near where Baalim and Balak tried to Curse the Israelites. This is NOT SOUTH in the actual Country of Moab this is to the North of the River Arnon. Please family look at the map where Mt Nebo and where the river Arnon is.
Ok NOW look at the map with understanding do you see where MOAB is listed to the south? That is where the actual Moabites live they were subjugated and pushed south.
The North lands are called the Plains or the Country of Moab thats where they do all their farming or used to until they lost the war. It sits between the Jordan and the Arnon River its a plush beautiful land for crops. This is why Reuben and Gad wanted it.
Now watch this family
Deuteronomy 29:7-9 & Numbers
And when ye came unto this place, Sihon the king of Heshbon, and Og the king of Bashan, came out against us unto battle, and we smote them: (Killed them so you can understand)
8 ===>And we took their land<===, and gave it for an inheritance unto the Reubenites, and to the Gadites, and to the half tribe of Manasseh.
9 Keep therefore the words of this covenant, and do them, that ye may prosper in all that ye do.
((Otherwise we will be kicked out of the land also which happened later))
Numbers 21:20-31 (We will highlight 31st verse)
31 Thus Israel dwelt in the land of the Amorites.
For some that will be enough it cannot be understated enough you must read the bible precept upon precept to get the understanding. Right down to the last verse you can see that Israel possessed the land of Moab not the Country where Moab lived. The Amorites Possesses that land and then Israel Dispossessed them. What is the definition of Dispossessed?
I didnt pull this out of my butt this is THEIR definition and it clearly says in Numbers 21 when you read it that the Israelites Dispossessed the Amorites. Ruth was an Israelite by blood but she lived in the land of Moab.
Its not different than the USA today there are some places renamed after the Europeans came but some places kept the old. For all of though of you who want more proof and maps so you can break this down right keep reading. After this article if you cannot see how Ruth is an Israelite I cannot help you either Moses and Jephthah and the Israelites are lying or you are blind by the precepts of men.
Get your Tea or coffee ready here we GO! Now we start with the original article I Pray it brings you some light on this topic.
Many people come to this site to read articles that make sense and we let the bible speak and not go into vain opinions. This topic of Ruth was an Israelite, or heathen, on Youtube and other outlets has been talked about many times, but NO ONE brings up one critical fact that is of utmost importance when trying to discover if Ruth was an Israelite or heathen. What’s that fact you ask?
What does the bible say about who owned that land
Heathens or Israelites?
We here at True Israelite believe in letting God be true and every man a liar. Now if you are an old testament only Israelite you will really enjoy this article or even just someone new into the truth, or a seasoned vet.
To answer the question above we need to set some ground rules so we can determine with 100% clarity if the land was full of heathens or blood related Israelites.
One last thing before we get started even if you are in the camp that says “RUTH IS A HEATHEN!!” then I would humbly ask you to pull out your bible and go verse by verse while looking at the sources and then do your own research and see if what the BIBLE says is true. Here are the ground rules.
- 2 Witnesses or more that provide proof of the findings on if Ruth was an Israelite
- No vain opinions just expound on what the text says by bringing precept upon precept
- Let TMH be true but every man a LIAR
- I have made this article foolproof with full scale maps with a wide range of references. I even made this article full width so that everything can be seen in Crystal Clarity. No ads no fluff just truth for FREE.
As always we like to go to Christ himself when it comes to speaking about his family or lineage so what did Christ say in the book of Revelations and the book of Psalms?
We start here because all scripture has to be upon reading and linking precepts if someone comes and tries to teach you another way according to Isaiah 8:20 don’t listen to them, because this testimony about Ruth was an Israelite is not only true but has many ripple effects.
If she is NOT of the bloodline of Abraham Isaac and Jacob then the white man can argue that we as Negroes are Hamites. We lived in Africa but does that make us Ham? A Chinese man that is born in Jamaica does that make him Jamaican?
All books in the bible are Ordained by the Most High via Prophets or Israelites period (Amos 2:11). Now does TMH use other nations to further his message and will? Yes like Cyrus and Nebuchadnezzar but you will not find a book in the bible dedicated to them just small passages.
You will not find a Hamite going to the children of Israel saying Thus says the Lord in the old or new Testament so what makes you think he would use a true blood Moabite? Again TMH power of Israel uses nations as chess pieces on a board but they do not have their own book in our bible.
Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy,
and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.
Through thy precepts I get understanding:
therefore I hate every false way.
There is no other article on the Internet that shows this much research to prove Ruth was an Israelite
The reason I put this case together is to try to shed some light that has been hidden I guess for a while now but just like Cornelius breakdown needed to be hashed out to prove he was in FACT a Israelite the same applies to sister Ruth.
I am not bosting in myself the holy spirit guided me through hours of research and I bring it to you gift wrapped. In this case study as said before we will bring out biblical history and maps to show pivotal locations to ascertained the point.
One last thing to say is I did not place this together to “Prove anyone wrong” its that so many camps and churches are trying to use Boaz and Ruth as an excuse to intermarry with the heathen, and if you ever even touched the bible you know that TMH never ordained us to marry outside of the 12 tribes (Except in rare cases see Moses).
I am saying all of this upfront because no matter if I show fact upon fact, and line upon line still some people will not believe and the funny thing is I do not care if you believe me or not. I have learned in 2020 that there are some camps that worship their congregations more than Yahawah so this article is not for them.
I want you to walk with me on a journey of truth not behind me or in front but with me so we can determine the truth of the matter. See unlike other websites you go to you do not see a ton of ads or donation links on this page because I do this for truth sake like Christ says (John 8:32).
There are elders (Modern day Sadducee and Pharisees) this will not like this article but thats OK Im going to blow the trumpet as loud as I can and I pray you take notes. In addition any information on this site feel free to copy past and SAVE ALL THESE MAPS to your computer because they were hard to find lol.
DISCLAIMER: There is no way family that I could make this “Mobile Friendly” so I would like to apologize upfront for this is too much information and maps to make fit on a cell phone. Please bookmark this article to digest it at home with some coffee or Tea, because I have laid everything in this article.
It took me months to compile all these gems and I just couldn’t make wordpress fit it on their platform to squeeze into a cell phone size screen. This article will also rub some people the wrong way for that I apologize, but this truth must come out and I am not ashamed of what TMH showed me and neither should you. In the end I did this for the elects sake, those who have an ear let THEM hear. (Matthew 13:10-13). I love all you brothers and sisters, and I pray after this that the stumbling block of “Ruth was an Israelite” will be removed permanently.
Now the Journey Begins…….
Ruth Was An Israelite Part 1: The War of the Amorites
According to the bible (we always start there)
in the book of Numbers 21:20 -26 says this…
And from Bamoth in the valley, that is in the country of Moab, to the top of Pisgah, which looketh toward Jeshimon.
And Israel sent messengers unto Sihon king of the Amorites, saying,
Let me pass through thy land: we will not turn into the fields, or into the vineyards; we will not drink of the waters of the well: but we will go along by the king’s high way, until we be past thy borders.
And Sihon would not suffer Israel to pass through his border: but Sihon gathered all his people together, and went out against Israel into the wilderness: and he came to Jahaz, and fought against Israel.
And Israel smote him with the edge of the sword, and possessed his land from Arnon unto Jabbok, even unto the children of Ammon: for the border of the children of Ammon was strong.
And Israel took all these cities: and Israel dwelt in all the cities of the Amorites, in Heshbon, and in all the villages thereof.
For Heshbon was the city of Sihon the king of the Amorites, who had fought against the former king of Moab, and taken all his land out of his hand, even unto Arnon.
We start with the last verse first because there is an important mandatory fact we cannot skip or dance past because this history of the Amorite war with the Moabites is not really hashed out in the bible fully. I’m going to show you a map and information BEFORE the Israelites sent the message to the King Sihon of the Amorites.
Quick Notes Hostory Facts on the
War of the Amorites and Moab (Source for some of this history)
- The Amorites were descendants of Canaan: Gen. 10:15-16; 1 Chron 1:13-14.
- At the time of Abraham 2000BC, the Amorites lived in
2. Hazazon-tamar Genesis 14:7 (which is also known as Engedi: 2 Chron 20:2. Engedi is a large active oasis on the western shore of the Dead Sea directly across from the Arnon River.
- The Amorites were likely the largest of the 7 nations that God displaced for Israel out of Canaan. Gen 15:16; ” “When the Lord your God brings you into the land where you are entering to possess it, and clears away many nations before you, the Hittites and the Girgashites and the Amorites and the Canaanites and the Perizzites and the Hivites and the Jebusites, seven nations greater and stronger than you,” (Deut 7:1)
- The Amorites were a large and powerful nation that controlled much of the promised land, including Jerusalem, Hebron, and Lachish: Joshua 10:5
- The trans Jordan Amorites were displaced south when Israel took possession of the promised land in 1406 BC: Gen 15:18-21; 48:22; Deut 7:1; Amos 2:10
- The center of their power was transjordan in Heshbon, a town in modern Jordan. Deut 1:4
- The Trans jordan territory of the Amorites was given to the tribes of Gad, Reuben and Manasseh: Josh 12:6; 21:38-39; 1 Chron 6:81; Num 32:33-42
- At the time of the exodus, the Arnon River was the Amorites’ southern border with The Moabites mentioned in Numbers 21:13
So the Amorites took the HALF the land of the Moabites and your map looks like this at this point in history. Your first map looks like this remember this is AFTER the war.
Ruth Was An Israelite Part 2: Land Grants,
Treaties, and Israelite Dominance
Now if you have been following along you can see that, we are trying hard to establish ourselves as a nation and Moses sent messengers to the King of Amorites, Moab, and Edom but they would NOT let us through the land. As a matter of fact they wouldn’t even let us take the kings highway. We have not went to war …yet. We are trying to do things peacefully.
If you read in the book of Numbers 20:20-22 you see that Edom said no you cannot pass through our land and thus Moab and Ammon so on because the most high started to put the fear of us on these nations. Why you ask? Because the LORD hardened their hearts to teach us WAR.
- Denied Access to the Kings highway by Edom = Numbers 20:20-22
- Denied Access to the Kings Highway by Amorites = Numbers 21:20-22
- Due to the book of Deuteronomy Chapter 2 (Land Treaties) we could NOT disturb the Edom, Moab and Ammon. Here is the proof stick with me because this next map will turn on a lightbulb. Deuteronomy 2:37 is proof but I did the heavy lifting for you Israelites just follow along in your bibles.
COMMANDMENT from TMH Yahawah Concerning Moab!
And the LORD said unto me, Distress not the Moabites, neither contend with them in battle: for I will not give thee of their land fora possession; because I have given Ar unto the children of Lot for a possession. (Meaning do not mess with them)
((Verdict? Don’t mess with Moab’s Land Deuteronomy 2:9 but remember the NORTHERN Part of Moab was now owned by the Amorites not Moab))
Commandment from TMH Yahawah Concerning Edom
And command thou the people, saying, Ye are to pass through the coast of your brethren the children of Esau, which dwell in Seir; and they shall be afraid of you: take ye good heed unto yourselves therefore:
Meddle not with them; for I will not give you of their land, no, not so much as a foot breadth; because I have given mount Seir unto Esau for a possession.
((Verdict? Don’t mess with Moab’s Land Or Edom Deuteronomy 2:4-5))
Commandment from Yahawah Concerning Ammon!
And when thou comest nigh over against the children of Ammon, distress them not, nor meddle with them: for I will not give thee of the land of the children of Ammon any possession; because I have given it unto the children of Lot for a possession. (Verdict? Don’t mess with Ammons’s Land Deuteronomy 2:19)
TMH is not the Author of Confusion he says exactly what he means and means what he says. If they (The Israelites) would of went into ANY of those lands it would of been a direct breaking of the TMH commandments. So they had to go around the long route. Around those borders and do not break the law. Look what the lord said about the other nations coming anywhere hear us.
Yea, every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah shall be holiness unto the LORD of hosts: and all they that sacrifice shall come and take of them, and seethe therein: and in that day there shall be no more the Canaanite in the house of the LORD of hosts.
(( Hmm the Cannanites owned that land why do you think
Leviticus 18:1-3, Exodus 3:17, Deuteronomy 2:24, Exodus 23:23
says what it does?))
On that day they read in the book of Moses in the audience of the people; and therein was found written, that the Ammonite and the Moabite should not come into the congregation of God for ever;
((Wait a moment where is Nehemiah getting this from?
Could he be quoting something else?))
An Ammonite or Moabite shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD; even to their tenth generation shall they not enter into the congregation of the LORD for ever:
So with those 3 verses read and the maps alone up top how can Ruth be an heathen? No brothers and sisters Ruth was an Israelite and not Moab and Boaz knew this fact which we will explain later.
WE ARE NOT DONE YET because I said 100% proof and I meant that. Out of ALL the articles in the world wide web this one you should bookmark because after this if anyone tells you that Ruth is a heathen its because they want an excuse to marry foreign women or they are leaning upon what some camp told them. For that matter was not the Israelites in Numbers 25 Put to death for having sex with, and worshiping the gods of the Moab women?
And Israel abode in Shittim, and the people began to commit whoredom with the daughters of Moab.
And they called the people unto the sacrifices of their gods: and the people did eat,
and bowed down to their gods.
((But wait Ruth was a Moabite? Clearly something is missing let’s move on))
Now after the Amorites went INTO Moabs land and smashed them and destroyed their armys the map changes to THIS.
Hover your mouse to zoom in take a close look Recap of the map above Stay with me Israel because this is still your land
Now mind you there are NO Israelites yet in this territory and there will not be for some time which will be made clear the reason why later.
Now that we are up to speed in the book of Numbers we can move forward in time to Numbers 21:20 and beyond. One thing to point out as you can see clearly on the 2nd map, this location was not always owned by the Amorites but because of war things change.
This is mega prime real-estate due to it being surrounded by 3 rivers the Jabook, Arnon and the Jordon, but whoever wins the war wins the spoils.
As the most high promised this land was filled with milk and honey and TMH does not lie and this land was ordained to go to who in this future?. Moab hated to give up this land but as you read in the book of Amos 2:9 they could not match the power of the Amorites but we the True Israelites had no problem fighting any of these heathens.
Ruth was An Israelite Part 3: Israelites move and camp ready for WAR
Our next move through this journey to prove Ruth was an Israelite is to show what the map looks like before the Siege, During the Siege, and After the Siege.
((This is what the map looks like BEFORE the Siege and remember the commandment that GOD said to Moses concerning these lands.))
LISTEN CLOSE THE ARROWS ARE WHERE MOSES AND THE ISRAELITES MADE CAMP BEFORE WAR
One more time … because you know Israel is a stiff necked people and dont listen even though the map is clear.
- We couldn’t touch Edoms land
- Or the Moabites land.
- Or the Ammonites land
- Only option was to go AROUND their lands because rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft (1 Samuel 15:23) so we listened to our Elohim and kept his commandment.
We had no treaty with the Amorites and TMH deemed their land forfeit because of sin. They had warred against Moab and won because of the sins of Moab worshiping Chomosh. Now Israelites were about to go on a campaign to oust the inhabitance of the land who according to the map above are the Amorites the children of Canaan.
We had to go around all these lands in the map till we couldn’t move any further and we pitched close to the Arnon River (Follow the arrows thats Moses and the Army) as you can plainly on the map above see in the blue line next to the red arrow. Proof? Numbers 21:13, and from here on you need to turn off your cell phones and Cable TV, and focus because it’s about to get real.
Ruth Was An Israelite Part 4: ISRAELITES VS AMORITES of the Canaanites
This is where the rubber meets the road and I want to make something crystal clear. After this point if you are not looking at the maps or your bible you will not see the end game of this revelation. We are about to see how TMH and the Israelites got down. Remember the father is a man of WAR Exodus 15:3.
Moses sent messages to ALL these surrounding nations saying “Hey let us just PASS by you, and we wont even touch a thing” and all these nations said no why is that? Because TMH hardened their hearts especially of the heathen as he did with Pharoah. Here is the kings Highway Moses was asking to pass by follow along.
This is the Kings Highway that Moses was asking politely to pass
but the heathen said NO
This is the 2nd map of the Kings Highway this one shows clearly that it leads all the way to whats now known as Damasscus
The most high had no set agreements with these other nations period but gave us strait commandments concerning them which was very clear.
When the LORD thy God shall bring thee into the land whither thou goest to possess it, and hath cast out many nations before thee, the Hittites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, seven nations greater and mightier than thou;
And when the LORD thy God shall deliver them before thee; thou shalt smite them, and utterly destroy them; thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor shew mercy unto them:
So the Most High hardened their hearts just like with last instances with these other nations in the past and we went to war with the Amorites and of course we stomped a massive mud hole in their mighty African asses and we now owned that land that was previously owned by the Amorites.
((TMH got the victory and now the map changes again and looks like THIS))
Before we went into the land of the Amorites Map
After we went into the land and destroyed them Amorites Map After the War
As a side note you see where Moab is on the map? This is Crucial for later ….
We smashed them through the might of our power and now things get heated because there are details written in the book of Deuteronomy the expound on the history written in numbers and Judges. Ammon and Moab and ALL the earth heard about this war and took a keen notice and were deathly afraid of the Israelites and TMH.
This why Rahab the Harlot in Joahua 2 said what she did she was afraid and asked for a token covenant if she hid the spies of the Israelites. Lets pick things up in Deuteronomy because that chapter recaps this war and is a key history piece that cannot be ignored. It should set things in order and show you that Ruth was an Israelite and what tribe she is from.
Deuteronomy Chapter 2 Continued:
War History Detailed Records of Truth Before Ruth’s Birth
Now what does the war with the Amorites have to do with Ruth? You will have your answer asap. Chapter 2 and 3 of Deut. Have plenty of gems in them concerning this war you probably have read this but now with the above maps it will make sense.
Deuteronomy 2:24-25 we read this
Rise ye up, take your journey, and pass over the river Arnon: behold, I have given into thine hand Sihon the Amorite, king of Heshbon, and his land: begin to possess it, and contend with him in battle.
This day will I begin to put the dread of thee and the fear of thee upon the nations that are under the whole heaven, who shall hear report of thee, and shall tremble, and be in anguish because of thee. (See Rahab the Harlot Joshua 2)
Now that we go into the land and this happens transfer of owner land and goods is about to take place: jump in your bible to Deuteronomy 2:32-37 (Read Closely)
Then Sihon came out against us, he and all his people, to fight at Jahaz. (Look at the map!! This is NOT Moabs land at this point)
And the LORD our God delivered him before us; and we smote him, and his sons, and all his people.
And we took all his cities at that time, and utterly destroyed the men, and the women, and the little ones, of every city, we left none to remain:
Only the cattle we took for a prey unto ourselves, and the spoil of the cities which we took.
From Aroer, which is by the brink of the river of Arnon, and from the city that is by the river, even unto Gilead, there was not one city too strong for us: the LORD our God delivered all unto us:
Anything that pisseth against the wall we smashed there was NOTHING left in that landmass alive. Now why did the Israelites destroy them all? Because of the commandment of Deuteronomy 7:1-3. Utterly destroy them means exactly that. Now someone slick will say well “After the book of Numbers you read in later books that the Amorites were still alive:. This is true but never would they as a entire people rise and own that land. The ones who escaped our grasp ran and were scattered out throughout the lands of Ham. Let’s continue with our journey hold on family we aint done yet.
Only unto the land of the children of Ammon thou camest not, nor unto any place of the river Jabbok, nor unto the cities in the mountains, nor unto whatsoever the LORD our God forbad us.
(Remember the commandment in Deuteronomy 2:19?)
We killed ALL the Amorites dead and anything that was in the land because of the commandment in Deut 7:1-2. If there in nothing left in the land but us Israelites how did 1 Moabite survive? Take a look at the map again see the Arnon river? We took the land to the NORTH of the river not southern Moab lands. This is important later because there is a difference in the Land of Moab and the country sides of Moab or the plains.
Now when your read on in Chapter 3 of Deuteronomy you see plainly that the war is not over yet there are many accounts of the war of Og in the bible but for time sake we will take this to Deuteronomy to make clean points. Deuteronomy 3:
Ruth Was An Israelite Part 5:
War of Og last of the Giants versus the Israelites
And the LORD said unto me, Fear him not: for I will deliver him, and all his people, and his land, into thy hand; and thou shalt do unto him as thou didst unto Sihon king of the Amorites, which dwelt at Heshbon.
So the LORD our God delivered into our hands Og also, the king of Bashan, and all his people: and we smote him until none was left to him remaining.
And we took all his cities at that time, there was not a city which we took not from them, threescore (60 Cities total) cities, all the region of Argob, the kingdom of Og in Bashan.
All these cities were fenced with high walls, gates, and bars; beside unwalled towns a great many.
And we utterly destroyed them, as we did unto Sihon king of Heshbon, utterly destroying the men, women, and children, of every city. (Remember the commandment).
But all the cattle, and the spoil of the cities, we took for a prey to ourselves.
And we took at that time out of the hand of the two kings of the Amorites the land that was on this side Jordan, from the river of Arnon unto mount Hermon;
(Which Hermon the Sidonians call Sirion; and the Amorites call it Shenir;)
All the cities of the plain, and all Gilead, and all Bashan, unto Salchah and Edrei, cities of the kingdom of Og in Bashan.
For only Og king of Bashan remained of the remnant of giants; behold, his bedstead was a bedstead of iron; is it not in Rabbath of the children of Ammon? nine cubits was the length thereof, and four cubits the breadth of it, after the cubit of a man.
And this land, which we possessed at that time, from Aroer, which is by the river Arnon, and half mount Gilead, and the cities thereof, gave I unto the Reubenites and to the Gadites. (Read Closely)
So now ladies and gentlemen of the Israelite stock we have come to a crossroad. Either you are going to believe everyone and I mean E V E R Y O N E in the land is dead or Moses and the prophets are lying. Either you stand for the truth or you stand for lies.
How can a Moabite family survive this massacre? You are going to with a straight face tell me that the Israelites went through the land disobeyed TMH and left Moab in a land that was no longer theirs due to the land grant of God? But guess what I STILL have not proved it 100 percent so if you want to see more keep reading. I got plenty more gems for you that few have found. All praises to TMH and the son and the holy ghost for laying down straight paths.
Map Update After the War with Amorites and the Land Grant via promise of God: Amorites and Ogs land transferred
Og and the Amorites are all dead the Israelites now own the land
((Reuben got this Chunk of Land Deuteronomy 3:12,
Numbers 32:19 ((Land Grant via Oath))
Remember Reuben and Gad wanted this land but Moses said we needed to make sure we subdued all of our enemies and they made an oath Numbers 32:6. So now after the defeat of Og and the now EMPTY land of Bashan the map looks like this. To further prove this land is where it is
These are the commandments and the judgments, which the LORD commanded by the hand of Moses unto the children of
Israel in the plains of Moab by Jordan near Jericho. Again they couldn’t go south and disturb the Moabites below the Arnon river
Map Changed Gad and Manasseh Land updated
Now the land is owned by Gad Manasseh and Reuben
Now things begin to take a much different shape in that land than originally thought, because according to the bible if everyone was DEAD in the land, and we have no records saying Moab, Edom or Ammon rose up against Israel at this time to take the land back then these lands all transferred to the Israelites according to the bible.
Listen I came from the same exact place most of you are at now but when I read in the bible “None left alive” then you actually read the war precept upon precept you have to humble down and say “I was wrong”. Will this get you though the gates of the Kingdom in the end? No but is the truth important YES, because people are using Ruths legacy to commit sins and that my brothers and sisters WILL cost you the kingdom. I am giving you the entire cake here I am leaving nothing to chance.

Now we jump ahead in time 300 years to the time of Jephthah (one of my favorite stories) but this brother recapped this entire history to the Ammonites because they were trying to rise up against the Children of Israel. Why you ask?
Look at the map above, now the Israelites controlled the best land this side of Jordon this is why the Northern Kingdom wanted this plot and who could blame them. Ammon was pissed off because they couldn’t defeat the Amorites and the Jabook River, and Arnon River nor the Jordon river they could not mess with because the Armorites stomped them if they tried. The Plains of Moab (Not the southern land look at the plot called plains of Moab) used to be Moabs Agricultural Money Pot, but when they lost it to the Amorites they could never reclaim it.Quite simply if you have a land with 3 rivers running to it that is money for Agricultural reasons alone not counting the minerals.
Israel never renamed most of those lands to the north. That’s why you read on the map “Plains of Moab”, or Mt Nebo etc. It’s like some lands are in the United States today but the country sides are still called things like Minnehaha or Hiawatha in Minnesota.
Jephthah was breaking down the history to these Ammonites and said these words. Remember now the leaders of Israel asked the brother to fight for them……. in Judges 11:1-5?
12. And Jephthah sent messengers unto the king of the children of Ammon, saying, What hast thou to do with me, that thou art come against me to fight in my land?
13 And the king of the children of Ammon answered unto the messengers of Jephthah, Because Israel took away my land (He Lied lol), when they came up out of Egypt, from Arnon even unto Jabbok, and unto Jordan: now therefore restore those lands again peaceably. (Was never their land ..ever)
14 And Jephthah sent messengers again unto the king of the children of Ammon:
He breaks down the entire history as we did here in this article remember Ruth is not born yet but Reuben is in that land.
15 And said unto him, Thus saith Jephthah, Israel took not away the land of Moab, nor the land of the children of Ammon: (See Deut chapt 2)
16 But when Israel came up from Egypt, and walked through the wilderness unto the Red sea, and came to Kadesh;
17 Then Israel sent messengers unto the king of Edom, saying, Let me, I pray thee, pass through thy land: but the king of Edom would not hearken thereto. And in like manner they sent unto the king of Moab: but he would not consent: and Israel abode in Kadesh
18 Then they went along through the wilderness, and compassed the land of Edom, and the land of Moab, and came by the east side of the land of Moab, and pitched on the other side of Arnon, but came not within the border of Moab: for Arnon was the border of Moab. (See map above)
19 And Israel sent messengers unto Sihon king of the Amorites, the king of Heshbon; and Israel said unto him, Let us pass, we pray thee, through thy land into my place.
20 But Sihon trusted not Israel to pass through his coast: but Sihon gathered all his people together, and pitched in Jahaz, and fought against Israel. (The lord hardened the hearts of Amorites and Og)
21 And the LORD God of Israel delivered Sihon and all his people into the hand of Israel, and they smote them: so Israel possessed all the land of the Amorites, the inhabitants of that country. Again this is not Moabs Land
22 And they possessed all the coasts of the Amorites, from Arnon even unto Jabbok, and from the wilderness even unto Jordan.
23 So now the LORD God of Israel hath dispossessed the Amorites from before his people Israel, and shouldest thou possess it?
24 Wilt not thou possess that which Chemosh thy god giveth thee to possess? So whomsoever the LORD our God shall drive out from before us, them will we possess.
25 And now art thou any thing better than Balak the son of Zippor, king of Moab? did he ever strive against Israel, or did he ever fight against them,
26 While Israel dwelt in Heshbon and her towns, and in Aroer and her towns(See maps locations are there), and in all the cities that be along by the coasts of Arnon, three hundred years? why therefore did ye not recover them within that time?
Wait a minute pump the breaks ….. you mean to tell me that this was 300 years later from when Moses and the Israelites destroyed the Amorites and the Israelites had owned this now since that time? Again yall I could end the article of Ruth was an Israelite right here because there is no Ammonites Moababites or Esau or Amorites in that land. Lets look at this again in Large type…
People Let this sink in
See the question he asked? They were already living in the land since the war for 300 years+ why did the Ammonites wait till now to say something? They seen us growing as a nation left alone and prospering quickly, and were jealous we had a real god that gave us the good land. With this established we can now move onto the book of Ruth and now you shall see some light.
Ruth was an Israelite Part 6: A case for Ruth the Reubenite and not a Moabite
Lets take a small second and just think for a moment if no one else is in the land but the Israelites and even other nations are trying their damnedest to get our land how did after 300 years of us living there all of a sudden Moab owns that land?
Look at Israel today they had to get NATIONS to kick the real Jews out of that land what changed back in Jephthah time? People have ALWAYS wanted our land just look at the gold coast, and South America, Caribbean Islands or Philippines. ANYWHERE where there are Israelites Esau and these other nations want it and will destroy anyone who tries to get in their way. Just look up the papal Bulls of the Roman Catholic Church and you will get an idea what I’m talking about.
Ruth was an Israelite by blood now it’s time to put the final nail in the coffin and scare the scoffers off.
In Ruth chapter 1:1 we read this
Now it came to pass in the days when the judges ruled (There is your clue), that there was a famine in the land. And a certain man of Bethlehemjudah went to sojourn in the country of Moab, he, and his wife, and his two sons.
You can see plainly that this chapter takes place under the time of the book of Judges. All throughout the bible usually they give a basis for where, who, what, when. To make things plain at the beginning of each chapter it explains what it’s about. Jephthah also gives facts this is taking place during the same time period. Clearly if this land now is owned by us Israelites no Moabite can live there much less have a stronghold due to …….
Deuteronomy 23:3 + Deut 7:3-4
An Ammonite or Moabite shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD; even to their tenth generation shall they not enter into the congregation of the LORD for ever:
Neither shalt thou make marriages with them; thy daughter thou shalt not give unto his son, nor his daughter shalt thou take unto thy son.
For they will turn away thy son from following me, that they may serve other gods: so will the anger of the LORD be kindled against you, and destroy thee suddenly.
Boaz a righteous brother had to know this previous history that happened to the Children of Israel. There is no way he would of not known that the Moabites were HUGE Idol worshipers especially during the book of Numbers and Judges. Hell Israel even did evil following their gods. Just to recap as said above.
1.And Israel abode in Shittim, and the people began to commit whoredom with the daughters of Moab.(We will deal with this soon very important)
2And they called the people unto the sacrifices of their gods: and the people did eat, and bowed down to their gods.
3And Israel joined himself unto Baalpeor: and the anger of the LORD was kindled against Israel.
(24,000 Israelites were put to death for this)
And the children of Israel dwelt among the Canaanites, Hittites, and Amorites, and Perizzites, and Hivites, and Jebusites:
And they took their daughters to be their wives, and gave their daughters to their sons, and served their gods.
Boaz had to know what happened in the past he would not of taken Ruth as a wife if she was a Moabite. Remember King Solomon made this mistake later in time. If Boaz did this he would pre dated Solomon’s sin that split the nations. Yes the lord allowed this to happen in SOME cases but not all. Here is another example keep in mind this is AFTER the war.
Judges 10:6-8 (You cannot duck this)
6And the children of Israel did evil again in the sight of the LORD, and served Baalim, and Ashtaroth, and the gods of Syria, and the gods of Zidon, and the gods of Moab, and the gods of the children of Ammon, and the gods of the Philistines, and forsook the LORD, and served not him.
7And the anger of the LORD was hot against Israel, and he sold them into the hands of the Philistines, and into the hands of the children of Ammon. (Slavery again)
8And that year they vexed and oppressed the children of Israel: eighteen years, all the children of Israel that were on the other side Jordan in the land of the Amorites, which is in Gilead.
((Dagger for those with an pair of eyes to see))
Are you going to tell me the Forefather to Christ a righteous man didnt know this? Why would Boaz commit this sin knowing the history?
Now according to Ruth 1 they ran to these lands to seek refuge because there was a famine in the land. If this landmass was still owned by the Amorites or Moab they wouldn’t be able to go there and dwell with them due to land grants and commandments.(Deut 2, Deut 7)
We get in trouble every time we try to cleave to these other nations this is another reason why TMH doesn’t want us with them. Now we will jump to some questionable points that are a stumbling block to most. I have scoured the internet and books for a rather long time before I even considered to write this so forgive me if I miss a common question but here we go.
Question: Why is the land called Country of Moab in Ruth 1:2 doesn’t this mean the Land of Moab?
Answer: Just like today you have places on this earth that are still called the original names that the previous owners tagged it with. Here is some scriptural proof of what I mean.
Deuteronomy 34:5 “So Moses the servant of the Lord died there in the land of Moab, according to the word of the Lord.”
It says this because the land used to belong to Moab (Again look at the first maps). But let’s see what verse 8 says:
“And the children of Israel wept for Moses in the plains of Moab thirty days: so the days of weeping and mourning for Moses were ended.” See Bamoth on this map? The precept for that location is Ruth 1:1 then go to Numbers 21:20 again this is no longer Moab’s Land. Here is some proof on 3 different maps maps.
So the Israelites mourned for Moses in the Plains of Moab. Though it says Moses died in the land of Moab look where MT Nebo is. This is because the plains of Moab is the ‘country’ part of the land. Not to the South past the the Arnon River that part is Moabs possession or portion. If we distressed them TMH would of punished us for breaking his commandment.
Just like people who live in an urban area say they are going to the country i.e. countryside/rural area. That is what is going on here. Again to the North of the Arnon river used to be Moab’s farm land but now Israelites owned it and before that according to the war the Amorites. According to Ruth 1:1 and Numbers 21:20, this is the country side of Moab or Bamoth.
What does country mean in this instance?
One of the definitions is “cultivated field” or “plain” as opposed to mountain.
So this is where Ruth was from. Contrary to what some say, Ruth was an Israelite from the tribe of Reuben. There is just no way to break the scriptures.
Point 2 in Question = If Ruth was an Israelite, why does the bible call her, and her sister Women of Moab?
This is one thing that had me questioning this topic in the first place but then I remember the my teachers and this history lessons we had to go through. Biblical focused history classes really helped me hone into what was happening in this point in history.
Having a class that hammered into my head the history of Moses and the children of Israel concerning covenants, rights and laws really set me straight. Woman of Moab doesn’t mean what YOU think it does watch this because for me this was a red flag.
When I first was putting this together I had a hard time with this issue but I remembered what Christ and Peter said READ to show yourself approved. So I turned my focus on what the word said and then this poped into my head.
And Israel abode in Shittim, and the people began to commit whoredom with the daughters of Moab.
And with me posting this scripture I can tell you are looking confused and I am not even in your living room staring at you lol. You don’t see it do you? See the authors are no dummies and you will understand clearly once I post them side by side.
Daughters of Moab |Women of Moab
In Ruth she is called the Women of Moab but in Numbers 25 its called Daughters of Moab and no this is not splitting hairs stick with me the authors are very smart and left you a clue. What’s the rule in the bible? 2 or 3 witnesses for everything to be established right? Do you know how many times “Women of Moab” is in the bible?
1 Time only and thats it
Click to see for yourself
- Moab = “of his father
- the nation descended from the son of Lot
- the land inhabited by the descendants of the son of Lot
(This is the definition in Numbers 25:1)
Full definition = Môwʼâb, mo-awb; from a prolonged form of the prepositional prefix m- and H1; from (her [the mother’s]) father; Moab, an incestuous son of Lot; also his territory and descendants:—Moab.
This is what got Israel in trouble these are the actual decedents of Lot daughters of Incest.
Now watch this!!
And they took them wives of the women of Moab; the name of the one was Orpah, and the name of the other Ruth: and they dwelled there about ten years.
No this isn’t semantics look at the strongs number and definition like I said before this made me dive into this topic the authors of our bible knew what they were doing. They are trying to tell you this is different because of the war that took place. There is not a small difference but an MASSIVE difference between the 2. They made a difference here for a reason just like in the NT when they name Easter versus Passover.
Moabite = “from father: what father?”
- an citizen of Moab <==== See that?
- an inhabitant of the land of Moab
The scholars knew that this would cause confusion thus they gave it an entirely different meaning from Daughters of Moab. Can I prove this fact with more precepts? Yes here you go and as a matter of biblical fact you only find the term “women of Moab” mentioned once in the entire bible. Remember 2 or 3 witnesses everything is established? Here is more proof that this term Daughters of Moab means something totally different.
A Daughter of Moab, according to scripture can be found in
(again this means by blood)
Isaiah 16:2: “For it shall be, that, as a wandering bird cast out of the nest, so the daughters of Moab shall be at the fords of Arnon.” (This is the exact same Strongs Concordance H4124)
In the book of Ruth the statement women of moab doesn’t mean shes of Lot’s children. This says NOTHING at all about being a descendant. In this instance, if you happen to be living in a particular place, you were known as a ‘Woman of x”, irrespective of where you descend from.
To give an example today If I said the women of Minnesota are beautiful does that really describe or narrow down whom I find beautiful?
On the other hand If I say the African American women of Texas are the best looking now we have narrowed it down a bit. Ruth lived in the land but was not from the incest of Lot’s daughters she cannot be a Moabite. It would be the same as calling African Americans Africans just because you live there doesn’t make you them people. In other words she lived in the land of the OLD owners as a citizen of sorts like Paul , did he not claim to be a Roman?
Point 3 of the Ruth Issue
Question = How is it possible for Ruth to be an Israelite if Ruth herself told Naomi that she was a “different people” than she? Here is the scripture in question.
Ruth 1:8 “And Naomi said unto her two daughters in law, Go, return each to her mother’s house: the Lord deal kindly with you, as ye have dealt with the dead, and with me.
9. The Lord grant you that ye may find rest, each of you in the house of her husband. Then she kissed them; and they lifted up their voice, and wept
10 And they said unto her, Surely we will return with thee unto thy people.
Answer = So many times when we read scripture for whatever reason we may skip down to get to a point of a matter or even sometimes we read so much fatigue will set in and in your tiredness you will miss a key point that was always there staring in the face. If you jump back up in the chapter to Verse 7 you will see the answer.
verse 7 = Wherefore she went forth out of the place where she was, and her two daughters in law with her; and they went on the way to return unto the land of Judah.”
((Remember if she was a blood born Moabite she could not go into the congregation of the 12 tribes FOREVER))
So Naomi was going back to the land of Judah. Same place her husband came from (see verse 1 again remember the famine? ). All Ruth was saying is let me return with you to your own tribe. Naomi told them to return to their mothers houses, in the land of Reuben (Remember the war).
There seems to be a thought that everyone and everybody knew everyone of each others Kinfolks in Israel, but that just is not the case even an Israelite can be known as a Stranger we will get to that in one moment. Yes we are one nation but If I traveled to another state to visit an Israelite school for the first time the people there do not know my old history etc. I even might have to stand up and cry out JUUUDDDAHHHH lol.
Question 4 = OK then if Ruth was an Israelite it says plainly in Ruth 1: 15-16 that she had other gods. Here is the scripture in question that needs an answer.
And she said, Behold, thy sister in law is gone back unto her people,
and unto her gods: return thou after thy sister in law.
And Ruth said, Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee:
for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest,
I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God:
Answer = This right here is the hang up to the entire Ruth argument and it all comes down to this really were the Israelites ever called gods according to the bible? See in verse 15 where it says “gods” in lower case?
Remember what TMH said I am the Lord your god and besides me there is no other. This is “gods” with an S at the end, so there must be something we are missing remember the authors knew how pivotal this was so this is not a typo. Remember what the Philistines said when it came to us and our Elohim.
1 Samuel 4:6-8
And when the Philistines heard the noise of the shout, they said, What meaneth the noise of this great shout in the camp of the Hebrews? And they understood that the ark of the LORD was come into the camp.
And the Philistines were afraid, for they said, God is come into the camp. And they said, Woe unto us! for there hath not been such a thing heretofore.
Woe unto us! who shall deliver us out of the hand of these mighty Gods?
Remember Ruth 1:1? Yes this is during the time of Judges thus the Book of Judges, so this goes right into why there is so much confusion about this verse when you get to 15,16 of the chapter here is what you are missing brother and sisters.
Strongs Concordance H430 = god’s or elohiym
- rulers, judges
- divine ones
Strongs Actual Definition
אֱלֹהִים ʼĕlôhîym, el-o-heem’; plural of H433; gods in the ordinary sense; but specifically used (in the plural thus, especially with the article) of the supreme God; occasionally applied by way of deference to magistrates; and sometimes as a superlative:—angels, × exceeding,
God (gods) (-dess, -ly), × (very) great, judges, × mighty.
As you can see brothers and sister she was not talking about Gods like Moleck or Chemosh or Ashtoreth she was meaning judges of the land. Ruth is simply talking about her the Judges. In response to Naomi telling her to go to her land, to her judges. Remember Ruth 1:1 says this takes place during the time of Judges. Were the Moabites ruling the Israelites at this point? The answer is NO.
Ruth is telling Naomi, she will return with her and, She will leave the land of Reuben, and those judges, and go to the land of Judah, and be under those judges, as we read in Deuteronomy 16:18 (Meaning Rulers).
The Reubenites have different leaders in positions of power and judgement than Gad which is different than in Judah which was different than all the 12 tribes outside of the Levites.
Today in the Israelite communities you have different leaders setup some are Levites, some Ephraim, some Judah but all leaders are judges. Can I prove this further? Yes watch this!
Judges and officers shalt thou make thee in all thy gates, which the Lord thy God giveth thee, throughout thy tribes: and they shall judge the people with just judgment.
Thou shalt not revile the gods,
nor curse the ruler of thy people.”
See in the verse above this is clear its not talking about Heathen gods in Exodus 22:28. The judges were men considered wise men among their tribes, and they were very powerful. Exodus 22:28 crystal clear and its the S A M E “Gods” in Book of Ruth. Today according to Romans 13:1-5 the powers of the world are controlled by TMH god and today we are subject to Esau. He is the power right now judging us. Ruth was content to fall under Judah’s umbrella of leaders. Enough said that the above verse is NOT talking about heavenly powers. Here is more proof.
Psalms 82 1, 6
Verse 1 = (A Psalm of Asaph.) God standeth in the congregation of the mighty;
he judgeth among the gods.
you are children of the most High.
TMH has always had an order to our tribes and things he wanted done ever since Moses was around we have had leaders to Judge our people in other words earthly “gods”. Either TMH is lying or we have the entire wrong understanding of not only the book of Ruth, but the power given unto the Israelites at that time.
Since it is impossible for TMH to lie, Ruth was an Israelite and shall always be one you cannot duck this Revelation, unless you do what our forefathers did and throw his words behind your back. We have falsely accused sister Ruth to be a heathen for way too long and the same thing about brother Job.
The other thing we need to straighten out is the italicized words in that scripture about “thy people shall be my people”. For those with KJV bibles, you will notice “shall be” is in italics.
“And Ruth said, Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people, my people, and thy God my God”
In other words, your people are my people.
Question 5 = OK so how do you handle the “stranger “aspect? Why if Ruth was an Israelite why call herself a stranger? Here is the scripture in question.
Ruth 2:10 Then she fell on her face, and bowed herself to the ground, and said unto him, Why have I found grace in thine eyes, that thou shouldest take knowledge of me, seeing I am a stranger?
Now what happened before this. If ye will read, you will see Boaz is being particularly nice, and protective of Ruth (see verses 8-9). She could be saying “why do you take knowledge of me, given you don’t know me”.
Or she could be saying “Why do you take knowledge of me, seeing I am of a different tribe”.
It is the former. Why? Let’s see how Boaz responds: Let him tell his own story.
Verse 11 “And Boaz answered and said unto her, It hath fully been shewed me, all that thou hast done unto thy mother in law since the death of thine husband: and how thou hast left thy father and thy mother, and the land of thy nativity, and art come unto a people which thou knewest not heretofore.”
So Boaz is saying, he has been told of her, and her good works. (see verses 5&6), Boaz’s servants gave him the detail of Ruth and more. Boaz liked Ruth a lot and wanted to marry her. You know how it Is when you are sweet on someone.
‘Land of nativity’ means the land Ruth was born in. We have already proved that the land Ruth was born in, the country of Moab (Again see Numbers 21:20 and Ruth 1:1) which is now Rueben’s Land, was the land of the Tribe of Reuben. This land was also known as the plains of Moab.
And when Boaz says “a people which thou knewest not heretofore”, he is saying just that. She doesn’t know those people of Judah as individuals. The tribes were settled in the land of their respective inheritance by this time, and had been for a long time according to brother Jephthah 300 years. To think one in Israelite would know all the people in all the other tribes is unrealistic and suspect.
The word “Stranger” like the word ” World” in John 3:16 in itself has many definitions and can be used in different ways but what is the way it is being used in the book of Ruth? Well since the Israelites own the land and no Moabites are in the land its not talking about another nation.
Again like the example I touched on briefly above If I go to an Israelites house whom I have never seen what am I? Even If I talked to him on the phone it takes time to get to know someone (Prove a friend first Sirach 6:7).
Well then the question comes up, can you site a scripture in the bible that proves that Israelites in their own land could be considered strangers? The answer in Yes.
Numbers 16:40 Numbers 1:50
To be a memorial unto the children of Israel, that no stranger, which is not of the seed of Aaron, come near to offer incense before the Lord; that he be not as Korah, and as his company: as the Lord said to him by the hand of Moses.
And when the tabernacle setteth forward, the Levites shall take it down: and when the tabernacle is to be pitched, the Levites shall set it up: and the stranger that cometh nigh shall be put to death.
That’s right even here an Israelite not from the tribe of Levi got death and was considered an stranger. Remember the brother who accidentally bumped into the Ark on accident during king Davids time.
So, here, only a Levite, of Aarons line, may offer incense before the Lord. Nobody else (stranger) is permitted. Clearly, the other tribes are counted as ‘strangers’ to the Levites given they are not the sons of Aaron. They are of a different tribe. There are several examples of this in the book of Numbers. Here is another powerful example of a stranger within Israel.
For thy violence against thy brother Jacob shame shall cover thee, and thou shalt be cut off for ever.
In the day that thou stoodest on the other side, in the day that the strangers carried away captive his forces, and foreigners entered into his gates, and cast lots upon Jerusalem, even thou wast as one of them.
But thou shouldest not have looked on the day of thy brother in the day that he became a stranger; neither shouldest thou have rejoiced over the children of Judah in the day of their destruction; neither shouldest thou have spoken proudly in the day of distress.
((But wait there is more))
That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:
Final point of Arguments
Boaz was he righteous or wicked? Did he break the Law?
Well in my journey in the truth I have learned one thing is for sure if there is any question about a law then you need to go to that law and see where the transgression is, because if there is a law and you break it every single law in the bible has a judgement attached. If Boaz married a real blood related Moabite we got bad issue on our hands. because I can only think of a few instances where it is written that this is OK.
Thus we need to see in the law what brother Boaz was trying keep holy, because he was trying really hard to keep the law of Kinship in Chapter 4 of Ruth. Ironically this is the same exact argument the scribes, Sadducee, and Pharisees were trying to trio up Christ on in the book of Matthew 22:23-32.
Here is the law in 2 places.
8 And thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If a man die,
and have no son, then ye shall cause his inheritance to pass unto his daughter.
9 And if he have no daughter, then ye shall give his inheritance unto his brethren.
10 And if he have no brethren, then ye shall give his inheritance unto his father’s brethren.
11 And if his father have no brethren, then ye shall give his inheritance unto his kinsman that is next to him of his family, and he shall possess it: and it shall be unto the children of Israel a statute of judgment, as the Lord commanded Moses.
Deuteronomy 25-5 – 9
If brethren dwell together, and one of them die, and have no child, the wife of the dead shall not marry without unto a stranger: her husband’s brother shall go in unto her, and take her to him to wife, and perform the duty of an husband’s brother unto her.
6 And it shall be, that the firstborn which she beareth
shall succeed in the name of his brother which is dead, that his name be not put out of Israel.
7 And if the man like not to take his brother’s wife, then let his brother’s wife go up to the gate unto the elders, and say, My husband’s brother refuseth to raise up unto his brother a name in Israel, he will not perform the duty of my husband’s brother.
8Then the elders of his city shall call him, and speak unto him:
and if he stand to it, and say, I like not to take her;
9Then shall his brother’s wife come unto him in the presence of the elders, and loose his shoe from off his foot ,(THIS IS KEY) and spit in his face, and shall answer and say, So shall it be done unto that man that will not build up his brother’s house.
See Boaz was extra careful to follow this law if she was a Moabite (Ruth) this law would not apply to her. Here is one reason Psalms 147:19-20 the heathen have no place with this law in Israel. Again I say if Ruth was a bloodline Moabite this law should not be enforced.
Because they cannot even come into the congregation forever Deuteronomy 23:3 just 2 chapters before this one there is no room for Ruth to be a Moabite the LAW OF KINSHIP WOULD NOT APPLY. Boaz not only followed this law but even loosed his shoe. Boaz kept this law fully here it is.
Then went Boaz up to the gate, and sat him down there: and, behold, the kinsman of whom Boaz spake came by; unto whom he said, Ho, such a one! turn aside, sit down here. And he turned aside, and sat down. (he went to the leaders)
SIDE NOTE! Was Boaz applying the law about the Kinsman Redeemer? You know the one written in Leviticus 25:25? Isnt Christ coming to redeem us off this same law? You know the marriage supper written in Revelation. Are we in the same situation as Ruth and Christ is going to be Boaz all over? Maybe that too deep for you all moving on.
2And he took ten men of the elders of the city, and said, Sit ye down here. And they sat down. (If she was a heathen why the need for witnesses)
3And he said unto the kinsman, Naomi, that is come again out of the country of Moab, selleth a parcel of land, which was our brother Elimelech’s:
4 And I thought to advertise thee, saying, Buy it before the inhabitants, and before the elders of my people. If thou wilt redeem it, redeem it: but if thou wilt not redeem it, then tell me, that I may know: for there is none to redeem it beside thee; and I am after thee. And he said, I will redeem it. (Boaz gave the family next in line a chance to claim her and the land)
5Then said Boaz, What day thou buyest the field of the hand of Naomi, thou must buy it also of Ruth the Moabitess, the wife of the dead, to raise up the name of the dead upon his inheritance. (We will address this “Ruth the Moabitess” issue in a moment)
6 And the kinsman said, I cannot redeem it for myself, lest I mar mine own inheritance: redeem thou my right to thyself; for I cannot redeem it. (The next of Kin gave up the right to Boaz)
7 Now this was the manner in former time in Israel concerning redeeming and concerning changing, for to confirm all things; a man plucked off his shoe, and gave it to his neighbor: and this was a testimony in Israel. (This was the LAW this had to be confirmed by witnesses this is why even the taking off of the show had to be done)
8Therefore the kinsman said unto Boaz, Buy it for thee. So he drew off his shoe. (The law see above)
9And Boaz said unto the elders, and unto all the people, Ye are witnesses this day, that I have bought all that was Elimelech’s, and all that was Chilion’s and Mahlon’s, of the hand of Naomi.
10 Moreover Ruth the Moabitess, the wife of Mahlon, have I purchased to be my wife, to raise up the name of the dead upon his inheritance, that the name of the dead be not cut off from among his brethren, and from the gate of his place: ye are witnesses this day.
Here is the information about Mahlon look close
Mahlon and Chilion. Mahlon (Hebrew: מַחְלוֹן Maḥlōn) and Chilion (כִּלְיוֹן Ḵilyōn) were two brothers mentioned in the Book of Ruth. They were the sons of Elimelech of the tribe of Judah and his wife Naomi. Together with their parents, they settled in the land of Moab during the period of the Israelite Judges. <– READ THIS SLOWLY IN OTHER WORDS A CITIZEN.
And finally Ruth the Moabitess
an citizen of Moab
an inhabitant of the land of Moab
The only other thing at this point that can confuse you is the word purchase there. So I have taken the liberty to show in context what that word is really saying because this is not talking about a dowry.
|Old Testament (Hebrew) for “purchased”|

Just like Deuteronomy 28:68 brothers and sisters Boaz redeemed her according to the law and took of his shoe even. There was no need to spit in his face he was doing an honorable thing unlike Onan who hated his brother and TMH put him to death.
This is what happened. Ruth knew Boaz was a near Kinsman and wanted him to marry him, to fulfill the law. But what did Boaz say unto her? If you want to see a full timeline break down of Ruth and the book of Judges go here.

Ruth 3:12 “And now it is true that I am thy near kinsman: howbeit there is a kinsman nearer than I.” (Remember the law this does not apply to Moab)
This is why Boaz hesitated to take Ruth as his wife. He wanted to be careful to keep the law of the Kinsman. Someone had rights to her, ahead of him. The law it says it should be the nearest relative. Because the other guy did not fulfil his duties, Boaz was able to. See verse 13:
Ruth 3:13 “Tarry this night, and it shall be in the morning, that if he will perform unto thee the part of a kinsman, well; let him do the kinsman’s part: but if he will not do the part of a kinsman to thee, then will I do the part of a kinsman to thee, as the Lord liveth: lie down until the morning.” (If this was really a Moabite like in Numbers 25:1 why did he not just sleep with her it and keep it moving?)
Because right here if she was a Moabite by blood he would of violated this law and would of commited the SAME sin as Solomon because the true Moabites worshiped Chemosh at this time according to the book of Judges 10:6.
Deuteronomy 23:3 “An Ammonite or Moabite shall not enter into the congregation of the Lord; even to their tenth generation shall they not enter into the congregation of the Lord for ever:”
So with the war that happened with the Amorites, and 300+ years of dominance of the Israelites in that area plus the land grants. Ruth was born in the country of Moab right by Bamoth. If everyone according to the records was slaughtered including the Armorite War including the Moabite captives how can Ruth be Moab? Jephthah sorta seals the deal with his conversation with Ammon in the book of Judges chapter 11.
I have brought full circle my argument for Sister Ruth because she is a Righteous woman from the tribe of Reuben and Boaz from Judah was ever careful to treat her Lawfully, so he was Righteous indeed. I hope this makes some sense and allows us to remove this excuse from other camps to marry outside of the 12 tribes. Ruth was an Israelite if the tribe of Reuben.
