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.
That logic does not pan out sir...Where did the Moabites go sir? Did the Moabites suddenly become Israelites? Yes or No?
here are the many words that are translated fromNo. 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.
agricultural (1), battlefield* (1), country (14), countryside (1), countryside* (1), field (235), fields (32), ground (3), ground* (1), land (16), lands (1), mainland (2), soil (2), territory (2), wild (7).
And which of those tribes were their women called Moabites sir? Were Israelites living in Egypt called Egyptians sir? You are making an assumption that Ruth was an Israelite of either the tribe of Gad, Asher or Manesseh. Where is your proof text?
So what? Moabite women also liver in the field of MoabThe Nation of Moab is south of there.
where is your proof text? Moab is not a tribe of IsraelThere was no change. She was Israelite from birth!
the added words do not try to define anything. She was called a Moabitess in vs 22 check your lexicon for the Hebrew word usedI have given you scripture that shows the added words that try to define her as a Moabite woman.
Does that mean a Moabite woman cannot live in the fields of Moab?I have shown you what the area where Naomi went is called "FIelds of Moab".....not the Nation of Moab.
Israelites did not worship men. This does not help your position. You are saying that she went back to a place where possibly men were worshipped.I have shown you that Ruth's sister went back to her Elohiym which are not necessarily dieties...but can be men.
Ok so how would you translate vs 10?.
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.
I don't see how that helps your argument. If she were an Israelite she wouldn't have to hold on to Naiomi to be with her God, since she would already be serving the same God.[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.
No they don't Jehovah is not a Hebrew wordIf Ruth was a Moabite she would probably be unaware of this name for Yahweh. The Hebrew calls it Jehovah in the literal.
LoL..https://biblehub.com/lexicon/exodus/6-3.htm[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;
That is the silliest argument ever...she was married to an Israelite sir, she also lived with her mother in law an Israelite woman.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.
