you asked for evidence of your misunderstanding of the scripture. Ruth was a woman of Moab. You seem to believe that she was a woman of Israel.
The "Plains of Moab" was a territory held by Israel.....not Moab. Moab held it at one time but lost it to a King that Israel defeated.....and Israel became the new owners. Moses gave that land (East of Jordan) to three Israelite tribes. Ruth was born there about 150 years later....during the time of the Judges.
An Israelite born anywhere is called an Israelite. Because they belong to one of the 12 tribes of Israel. Are you saying that women of Moab are Israelites?
No. I'm saying that Ruth was an Israelite of either the tribe of Gad, Asher or Manesseh..... because they inhabited that area called the "Plains of Moab" at the time Ruth was alive.
The Nation of Moab is south of there.
How does that change a woman of Moab into an Israelite?
There was no change. She was Israelite from birth!
I doubt it sir. because your argument does not prove what you are supposing. here is one of your questions...Can you give me a "proof" text that verifies she is a citizen, "Born and raised" of the Nation of Moab?
You have not given me a proof text that verifies that she was not "Born and raised" of the Nation of Moab
I have given you scripture that shows the added words that try to define her as a Moabite woman.
I have shown you what the area where Naomi went is called "FIelds of Moab".....not the Nation of Moab.
I have shown you that Ruth's sister went back to her Elohiym which are not necessarily dieties...but can be men.
I have shown you the added words to scripture that try and make her say....."I will become your people and will worship your God." She doesn't say that at all.
[Ruth 1:17] Where thou diest, will I die, and there will I be buried: the LORD
do so to me, and more also, if ought
but death part thee and me.
If Ruth was a Moabite she would probably be unaware of this name for Yahweh. The Hebrew calls it Jehovah in the literal.
[Exodus 6:3] and I appear unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, as God Almighty; as to My name Jehovah, I have not been known to them;
Moses was told the Name of the Lord. Even the Patriarchs did not know it. By the time of Ruth it was known to most Israelites but rarely spoken out of respect. If she had been of the Nation of Moab she would not know this name....Jehovah.
