And the neighbor women gave him a name saying, "A son has been born to Naomi!" So they named him Obed, He is the father of Jesse, the father of David.
 
It was a dark time in Israel's history where faithlessness ran rampant. Set in this period, is a story of a young Moabite widow, who turns from her pagan roots and upbringing, to embrace the people and God of Israel. Love, devotion and redemption shine forth from the Lord during this bleak time, as He rewards her by giving her a new husband and a son who was to be positioned to be in the lineage of David and Jesus Christ. Ruth's undaunting hope and trust in God allowed her to be blessed and used beyond measure. Truly inspiring for us today.
