No lion shall be there, nor shall any ravenous beast go up on it; it shall not be found there. But the redeemed shall walk there,
And the ransomed of the Lord shall return, and come to Zion with singing, with everlasting joy on their heads. They shall obtain joy and gladness, a nd sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
The word “ransomed” comes from the Hebrew root גָּאַל [ga’al] which is the ransom paid by the closest relative. The relationship between Ruth and Boaz is the perfect picture of the kinsman redeemer which was fulfilled by Yeshua. He is Israel’s Kinsman Redeemer.
No wonder there will be singing, joy and gladness!
PRAY FOR THE REDEMPTION AND SALVATION OF ISRAEL.
