With great alacrity, Boaz moves to fulfill his promise. But obstacles must first be overcome, as to marry Ruth, first he must get a phantom Uncle Tov to step aside!

Boaz's thoughts were righteousness and preserving of life of Ruth and the same is concern of God for all His children, so seeing Boaz his mind, Hashem responded in kind. Reply
