In the Greek and later translations, the Book of Ruth follows that of Judges, since it was in their time that the history related in this book took place. In the Hebrew Bible, it formal a part of the Holy writings (Hagiographa). A subdivision of the five scrolls read in public on the great fest days of Israel. As a climax of the history of Ruth falls in harvest time, this narrative was customarily read at the Weeks or Wheat Harvest Feast- Later called the Feast of Pentecost.
