Obed, the Generation of Pharez - Ruth 4

Ruth 4:1 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. 

Ruth 4:2 And he took  ten men of the elders of the city, and said, Sit ye down here.  And they sat down. 

Ruth 4:3 And 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: 

Ruth 4:4 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. 

Ruth 4:5 Then 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.   

Ruth 4:6 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. 

Ruth 4:7 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 neighbour: and this  was a testimony in Israel. 

Ruth 4:8 Therefore the kinsman  said unto Boaz, Buy it for thee. So he drew off his shoe.  

Ruth 4:9 And 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. 

Ruth 4:10 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. 


Ruth 4:11 And all the people that were in the gate,  and the elders, said, We are witnesses. The LORD make  the woman that is come into thine house like Rachel and  like Leah, which two did build the house of Israel: and do  thou worthily in Ephratah, and be famous in Bethlehem:  

Ruth 4:12 And let thy house be like the house of Pharez, whom  Tamar bare unto Judah, of the seed which the LORD shall  give thee of this young woman.  

Ruth 4:13 So Boaz took Ruth, and she was his wife: and  when he went in unto her, the LORD gave her conception,  and she bare a son. 

Ruth 4:14 And the women said unto  Naomi, Blessed be the LORD, which hath not left thee  this day without a kinsman, that his name may be famous in  Israel. 

Ruth 4:15 And he shall be unto thee a restorer of thy  life, and a nourisher of thine old age: for thy daughter in  law, which loveth thee, which is better to thee than seven  sons, hath born him. 

Ruth 4:16 And Naomi took the child, and  laid it in her bosom, and became nurse unto it. 

Ruth 4:17 And  the women her neighbours gave it a name, saying, There is  a son born to Naomi; and they called his name Obed: he is  the father of Jesse, the father of David.  

Ruth 4:18 Now these are the generations of Pharez: Pharez  begat Hezron, 

Ruth 4:19 And Hezron begat Ram, and Ram  begat Amminadab, 

Ruth 4:20 And Amminadab begat  Nahshon, and Nahshon begat Salmon, 

Ruth 4:21 And Salmon  begat Boaz, and Boaz begat Obed, 

Ruth 4:22 And Obed begat  Jesse, and Jesse begat David.   KJV
