Ruth 4:16-17

Ruth 4:16-17 King James Version (KJV)
16 And Naomi took the child, and laid it in her bosom, and became nurse unto it.

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 4:16-17 The Voice (VOICE)

16 Then Naomi held the child tightly in her arms and cared for him. 17 All around her, friends cried out, “Naomi has a son!” They named the child Obed because he would provide for his grandmother. Obed grew up and became the father of Jesse. Jesse, too, became a father one day, the father of David.

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

16 Naomi took care of the child; this gave a joy and a new purpose in life. We as Christians find our purpose in life those Christ.

17 So Obed was born the grandfather of David who would be king of Israel. Then Jesse David’s father is born.
