Bible Ruth 1 4 Essay

537 words - 3 pages

In the book of Ruth from the bible there are three things that I liked while reading it. The voice of Ruth, the way the text is written and the overall theme of the story. While reading this story, Ruth's voice sounds somewhat childish. The feeling that I received is that Ruth is either a young girl or simply a women that is mentally ill. On the other hand, this is the bible and therefore by ruling out this possibility that she is either of the two is narrowed. Therefore she must be a child. She states that, "I want to go wherever you go and to live wherever you live." (Ruth 1:16) I thought that this was very ...view middle of the document...

In this story this must be the case. "Your people will be my people and your God my God. 17 Where you die I will die, and there I will be buried." This section from the story proves that she wanted to be like her mother, sister etc. I just thought that it was a little strange that she wanted to do everything that everyone else did. The writing of this story seemed very easy to read rather than the writing in the beginning of the bible. Finally we got past the whole section, of this guy begot that girl etc. I am still unsure of the time period that this story was written. Overall the words were more or less easy to read. In this passage I had trouble finding the meaning, Then Naomi said to her two daughters-in-law, "Go back, each of you, to your mother's home. May the Lord Show kindness to you, as you have shown to your dead and to me. May the Lord grant that each of you will find rest in the home of another husband." As for the word choice, in the sections one to four I couldn't find the meaning of "ephah." I even looked it up in the dictionary and still had no luck Overall the theme of these chapters was foggy. I guess that I must finish reading it to get an overall view of this meaning that the writer is trying to get past. Through Ruth's voice, the writing of the text and the theme of the story, so far I enjoyed it and hopefully I will find the answers to my questions in the next chapters to come.
