The harvest comes to an end, and Naomi instructs Ruth in a new plan: She is to join Boaz at the threshing floor during his night of vigil. Whether or not the marriage was consummated on that night is debated, although the story is clear enough here: The consummation took place after the marriage and was blessed by God with a son, Obed.

- The Story of the Book of Ruth.
The court scene, between Boaz and the other unnamed claimant, establishes this as it resolves the underlying patterns with a happy ending. And time and history place another dimension into this pattern: the covenant of love between Boaz and Ruth reminded the people Israel, in times of exile and need, that a similar covenant exists and continues between Israel and God.
All of the story is brought to a successful conclusion. The anonymous kinsman is anxious to purchase the land. Since Naomi has no male descendants, the property would then become part of his permanent family holding.
Then Boaz reminds him that marriage to Ruth would be part of the obligation. The son of that marriage would be assigned to Naomi, and the final outcome of the contract would see the land revert to Naomi and her family. The kinsman demurs, and Boaz happily accepts the privilege and obligation of marrying Ruth and raising a family for Naomi. The irony is clear: It is the kinsman whose name is forgotten! The Scroll of Ruth is not a legal document giving instruction on levirate marriage and land redemption. It takes the legalities of the time for granted, as incidental to the unfolding of a Divine pattern within human lives, in the creation of a family tree for King David, with possible intimations of a messianic kingdom.
It began with the suffering of Naomi, and ends with her joy. The declaration of Ruth is fulfilled: The destinies of Naomi and Ruth are interlocked, they are now one family and one faith. Boaz has fulfilled both of their hopes; he has been the redeemer to Naomi, the true husband to Ruth.
And the community rejoices. Some scholars have argued that the book was written to defend intermarriage. Certainly, it gives full rights to a Moabite woman who then becomes the ancestress of the royal house of the Jewish people, of King David who comes to represent the messianic ideal, the unity and peace which will embrace all humanity. Loyalty to the faith of Israel is fused with the love of humanity for whom the Torah was revealed. They arrive in the little town at the time of harvest, and their presence causes quite a stir.
Many old friends and acquaintances of Naomi greet her by name. Naomi feels that God has brought calamity upon her v. In Bible days, remember, names were not just designations, but definitions. Had she known the truth of Romans —that God takes all things and works them for good—she might have viewed things differently. Through God, negative experiences work to make us not bitter—but better. Ruth had no difficulty in finding a task to gainfully occupy her attention.
At harvest time there was always work to be found in the fields clearing up after the reapers.
Ruth: A Blessed Laborer
Ruth decides on a certain field, not by chance, but under the direct guidance of the Lord. There she meets for the first time the owner of the field, Boaz—a relative of her late father-in-law and the man who would later redeem her and become her husband. His protective care and concern prompts Ruth to ask: why are you doing this for me? He explains that the story of her devotion to Naomi has touched him deeply, and this is his way of showing appreciation. Did Ruth find herself in the field owned by Boaz just by chance?
She might not have been conscious of divine guidance—but it was there nevertheless. How thrilling it is to know that God is working for our highest good—even when we are not conscious of it! Although Ruth was involved in the overall task of reaping, her specific work was that of gleaning. When the reapers worked their way through the fields, they would, because of the speed at which they worked, leave some parts of the field unreaped.
