BOAZ . A Bethlehemite of wealth, the son of Salmon; grandfather of Jesse, and thus ancestor of David ( Ruth 4:21-22 , 1 Chronicles 2:11 , Matthew 1:5-6 , Luke 3:32 ). He became the second husband of the widowed Ruth, whom he married (according to ancient Hebrew custom) as next-of-kin, when her ‘near kinsman’ refused to undertake this duty ( Ruth 4:1-10 ). See Ruth.
