Ruth's husband died but still she remains loyal to both Naomi, her mother-in-law and to the the God of Israel. During undeserved suffering, she trusts the Lord to provide His best for her. THe Lord then graciously blesses her with a kinsman-redeemer named Boaz which later on redeemed her and the family property.

Ruth is a great grand-mother of David which is the lineage of the Messiah.

Ruth is from the Hebrew word for "companion".
