or BOAZ, the son of Salmon and Rahab, Ruth 4:21 , &c; Matthew 1:5 . Rahab, we know, was a Canaanite of Jericho, Joshua 2:1 . Salmon, who was of the tribe of Judah, married her, and she bore him Booz, one of our Saviour's ancestors according to the flesh. Some say there were three of this name, the son, the grandson, and the great grandson, of Salmon: the last Booz was Ruth's husband, and the father of Obed.

2. BOOZ, or BOAZ, was the name of one of the two brazen pillars which Solomon erected in the porch of the temple, the other column being called Jachin. This last pillar was on the right hand of the entrance into the temple, and BOOZ on the left, 1 Kings 7:21 . The word signifies strength or firmness. Mr. Hutchinson has an express treatise upon these two columns, attempting to show that they represented the true system of the universe, which he insists were given by God to David, and by him to Solomon, and was wrought by Hiram upon these pillars.
