The Book of Ruth (Hebrew: מגילת רות; Sephardic, Israeli Hebrew: [məɡiˈlat rut]; Ashkenazi Hebrew: [məˈɡɪləs rus]; Biblical Hebrew: Meghilath Ruth "the Scroll of Ruth") is one of the books of the Hebrew Bible, Tanak, or Old Testament. In the Jewish canon the Book of Ruth is included in the third division, or the Writings (Ketuvim). In the Christian canon the Book of Ruth is wedged between Judges and 1 Samuel. It is a rather short book, in both Jewish and Christian scripture, consisting of only four chapters.
