Ruth has thrown caution to the winds and bared her soul; asking Boaz to not only perpetuate her late husband's name by redeeming his estate – but also to embrace and marry her.

Sensing the turmoil in her heart he sets her at ease with righteous words of endearment, as a sweep of history begins to materialize!
