The Wednesday Word - ruth

Best Blogger Tips

Wednesday 5 June 2013

Today’s word is ruth, which means showing compassion or pity for another. Its opposite is more widely known, but it is still a word in its own right.

“There has been some conjecture among Biblical historians that before he was married, Boaz was the typical ruthless agrarian employer, but the historical evidence clearly shows that after marrying, his ruth overflowed, not only for his new wife but also those in his employ.”

Feel free to let me know if you ever come across a word you think may be appropriate for this part of my blog.
