Bible Names A-G: Boaz


Boaz in Easton's Bible Dictionary alacrity. (1.) The husband of Ruth, a wealthy Bethlehemite. By the "levirate law" the duty devolved on him of marrying Ruth the Moabitess (Ruth 4:1-13). He was a kinsman of Mahlon, her first husband. (2.) The name given (for what reason is unknown) to one of the two (the other was called Jachin) brazen pillars which Solomon erected in the court of the temple (1 Kings 7:21; 2 Chr. 3:17). These pillars were broken up and carried to Babylon by Nebuchadnezzar.

Boaz in Fausset's Bible Dictionary Explained in margin 1 Kings 7:15-21, "in it (is) strength." Others, fleetness. 1. Of Bethlehem: Elimelech's (Naomi's husband's) kinsman. When the next of kin to Ruth, Naomi's daughter-in- law, declined to do the part of redeemer (god) (See BLOOD) of the inheritance of her deceased husband Mahlon (compare Deuteronomy 25:5-10), Boaz did so by marrying her, though much her senior (Rth 3:10). Their son Obed was grandfather of David. There being no objection to an Israelite's marriage with a Moabitess marks an early date (contrast Ezra 9). David's descent from Ruth the Moabitess accounts for the intimacy of David with the king of Moab, so that it was with him he left his father and mother in his flight from Saul (1 Samuel 22:3-5); an undesigned coincidence between the books of Samuel and Ruth, a mark of genuineness (compare Psalm 27:10). In the genealogy (Rth 4:18-22) several, at least three, generations must be inserted, as the list there only allows ten generations for 850 years, and only four for the 450 years between Salmon and David. 2. The name of one of the two brass pillars in Solomon's temple porch, on the left, as Jachin was on the right. The difference of the height as given in 1 Kings 7:15; 1 Kings 7:21; 2 Chronicles 3:15, arises from the height in one place including, in the other place excluding, the ornament which united the shaft to the chapiter (compare Jeremiah 52:17-21). The pillars, which were hollow, were broken up and carried to Babylon at the fall of Jerusalem before Nebuchadnezzar.

Boaz in Smiths Bible Dictionary (fleetness). 1. A wealthy Bethlehemite kinsman to Elimelech the husband of Naomi. He married Ruth, and redeemed the estates of her deceased husband Mahlon. Ru 4:1 Boaz is mentioned in the genealogy of Christ, Mt 1:5 (B.C. 1250, but there is great difficulty in assigning his date.) 2. The name of one of Solomon's brazen pillars erected in the temple porch. [JACHIN] It stood on the left, and was eighteen cubits high. 1Ki 7:15, 21; 2Ch 3:15; Jer 52:21

Boaz in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE bo'-az (bo`az; Booz; "quickness" (?) Ruth 2 through 4; 1 Ch 2:11,12; Mt 1:5; Lk 3:32): (1) A resident of Bethlehem and kinsman of Elimelech, Naomi's husband. In Ruth 2:1 he is described as a gibbor chayil, a phrase which can mean either "a mighty man of valor" or else "a man of position and wealth." The latter is probably the sense in which the phrase is applied to Boaz (compare 1 Sam 9:1). He had fields outside the town, and to them Ruth went to glean. Boaz noticed her and extended special kindness and protection to her, bidding her remain with his female workers, and charging the men not to illtreat her, and also giving her of the reapers' food at mealtime. Boaz awoke one night and found Ruth lying at his feet. He praised her virtue, and promised to take charge of her if her dead husband's next-of-kin failed to do so. He laid her case before the next-of-kin, and finally redeemed the family property himself and bought as well the right to take Ruth in marriage. The son of Boaz and Ruth was Obed, father of Jesse, and grandfather of David. 1 Ch 2:11,12 makes Boaz a descendant of Hezron, and so probably a chief of the Hezronite clan in Bethlehem. Jewish tradition identifies Boaz with Ibzan (Jdg 12:8-10). Boaz "is set before us as a model of piety, generosity and chastity" (H. P. Smith, Old Testament History, 398). He found virtue and rewarded it. HPM, sections 501-8, gives a picture of the life of "a well-to-do landed proprietor of central Israel," much of which could aptly be taken as a description of Boaz. (2) The name of one of the two bronze pillars erected in front of Solomon's temple, the other being Jachin (1 Ki 7:21; 2 Ch 3:17). See JACHIN AND BOAZ; TEMPLE.

Boaz in Wikipedia (pronounced /ˈboʊ.ęz/; Modern Hebrew בועז Bốʿaz; Massoretical Hebrew בֹּ֫עַז Bṓʿaz; Hebrew pronunciation: [ˈboːʕaz] ) is a major figure in The Book of Ruth in the Bible. The term is found 24 times on the Scriptures, being two in Greek (in the form "Booz").[1][2] The root בעז, just used on the Bible in relation to "Boaz" (see The Temple), perhaps expresses 'quick(ness)' (cf. Ar. بَعْ۬زٔ, 'swiftness [of horse]')...
