Ruth (路得記)

聖經經文

意思

路得是耶穌家族的祖先之一。她和丈夫原居摩押,即在今天的約旦。她丈夫去世后,路得離開了家鄉摩押,跟隨岳母拿俄米到以色列謀求生計。拿俄米卻一直要求路得留在家鄉摩押。路得決意與岳母相依為命,她說:“你往哪里去,我也往哪里去。你在哪里住宿,我也在哪里住宿。你的國就是我的國,你的神就是我的神。你在哪里死,我也在哪里死,也葬在哪里。除非死能使你我相離,不然,願耶和華重重地降罰與我。”(路得記1:16-18)。這種誓死的堅定使得路得成為世人心中忠貞的代表。 “ruth”一字有賢良孝順與忠貞的意思,“ruthless”則為反義詞。當我們說某人是“ruthless”,就表示他很硬心腸。
