This chapter relates how an offer was made to the nearest kinsman of
Ruth to redeem her, and the field her husband left, which he refused to
do, \\#Ru 4:1-8\\, upon which Boaz redeemed both, and married Ruth
before the elders of the city as witnesses, and who congratulated him
and her on that occasion, \\#Ru 4:9-12\\, to whom a son was born,
called Obed by the neighbours, \\#Ru 4:13-17\\ and the chapter is
concluded with the genealogy of David, who sprung from him,
\\#Ru 4:18-22\\.
