Ruthe 3; Preface - By Naomi's instruction, Ruth layeth herself in the night at the feet of Boaz; who acknowledgeth the duty of a kinsman, but telleth her of one who had a prior claim. He sendeth her home in the morning with six measures of barley.
Ruth 4; Preface - Boaz proposeth to the nearest of kin the redemption of Elimelech's land, and the marriage of Ruth. The kinsman declineth both according to the manner in Israel. Boaz buyeth the inheritance, and accepteth Ruth for his wife before the people. Ruth beareth Obed the grandfather of David. The generations of Pharez unto David.
Preface - Paul and his company after their shipwreck are kindly entertained by the barbarians of Melita: a viper fastening on his hand without hurting him, the people, who at first thought ill of him, believe him a god: he healeth the father of Publius, and other sick persons in the island. Paul and his company depart, and arrive at Rome; where Paul is left with a guard in a house of his own. He calleth the Jews together, and sheweth the occasion of his coming: he preacheth Christ to them, of whom some believe, others believe not: he continueth for two whole years to preach the gospel without interruption.

The divine Saviour
He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. - John 1 v 10
He was the Creator of all worlds: 'Without him was not anything made.' He was the Preserver of all worlds: 'By him all things consist', and hang together. All worlds, therefore, were His domain - He was Lord of all. He could say: 'Every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills. I know all the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beasts of the field are mine. If I were hungry, I would not tell thee: for the world is mine, and the fullness thereof' (Psalm 50 vs. 10-12). All lands sang aloud to Him: the sea roared His praise, the cedars bowed before Him in lowly adoration. Nay, He could say; 'All things that the Father hath are mine (John 16 v 15); and He could speak to His Father of the glory which He had with Him before the world was. Whatever of power, glory, riches, blessedness, the Father had, dwelt with equal fullness in the Son; for He was in the form of God, and thought it no robbery to be equal with God. This was the riches of the Lord Jesus.
Oh, brethren! can you trust your salvation to such an one? You heard it was He that undertook to be the surety of sinners, and died for them. Can you trust your soul in the hands of such an one. Ah! surely if so rich and glorious a being undertake for us, He will not fail nor be discouraged, 'till he have set judgement in the earth; and the isles shall wait for his law'.
