Ruth 4:13-14, 16-17 (The Message) - 13 Boaz married Ruth. She became his wife. Boaz slept with her. By God’s gracious gift she conceived and had a son. 14 The town women said to Naomi, “Blessed be God! He didn’t leave you without family to carry on your life. May this baby grow up to be famous in Israel! 16 Naomi took the baby and held him in her arms, cuddling him, cooing over him, waiting on him hand and foot. 17 The neighborhood women started calling him “Naomi’s baby boy!” But his real name was Obed. Obed was the father of Jesse, and Jesse the father of David.
