Bible Names A-G : Boaz


Boaz in Wikipedia (pronounced /ˈboʊ.ęz/; Modern Hebrew בועז Bốʿaz; Massoretical Hebrew בֹּ֫עַז Bṓʿaz; Hebrew pronunciation: [ˈboːʕaz] ) is a major figure in The Book of Ruth in the Bible. The term is found 24 times on the Scriptures, being two in Greek (in the form "Booz").[1][2] The root בעז, just used on the Bible in relation to "Boaz" (see The Temple), perhaps expresses 'quick(ness)' (cf. Ar. بَعْ۬زٔ, 'swiftness [of horse]')...
