Ruth 1:14, David Battles His Cousin?
And they lifted up their voice, and wept again: and Orpah kissed her mother in law; but Ruth clave unto her.
//Today’s story begins back in the book of Ruth. When Naomi left Moab to return home, Ruth accompanied her, but Orpah kissed her goodbye.
Three generations later, David was born in the lineage of Ruth. But whatever happened to Orpah?
Midrash tell us that Orpah, the night she broke ties with Naomi, lay with one hundred men … and a dog. Of this union came the Philistine Goliath, David’s famous enemy. So, David battles his third cousin to the death.
