CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
A kinsman - More literally "an acquaintance"; here (and in the feminine, Ruth 3:2) denoting the person with whom one is intimately acquainted, one's near relation. The next kinsman of Ruth 2:20, etc. גאל gā'al, is a wholly different word.
Boaz - Commonly taken to mean, "strength is in him" (compare 1 Kings 7:21).
