Ruth 3:1

Then Naomi her mother-in-law said unto her, My daughter, shall I not seek rest for you, that it may be well with you?
Read Chapter 3

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
I will. Hebrew and Septuagint may be read with an interrogation in the same sense. "Shall I not seek rest? "(Haydock) By this expression she means a husband, chap. i. 9. Marriage fixes the unsettled condition of women. (Calmet) Noemi being apprised of the law, entertained hopes that she could engage Booz to marry Ruth. (Haydock) Thus her penury would cease, and she would perhaps have children, as she earnestly desired. (Menochius)

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
