Ruth 1:8 – Ketiv Qere

This video introduces ‘ketiv qere’ – instances where the Masoretes noted the correct reading of a word in the margin of the text.  A ketiv qere occurs in Ruth 1:8.  This video is a little longer than normal.

For those who are interested in learning what the marginal notes mean in the BHS, Page Kelley has written a helpful book:

Page H. Kelley, Daniel S. Mynatt, and Timothy G. Crawford. The Masorah of Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia. Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 1998.
