Part of the confusion surrounding the word "ruddy" is that what is being taught has it's origins in British Israelism. Ruddy has never referred to blushing white skin or sunburned skin. It has always been used to refer to reddish brown animals and people. "And he sent, and brought him in. Now he wasruddy, and withal of a beautiful countenance, and goodly to look to. And the LORD said, Arise, anoint him: for this is he." - 1 Samuel 16:12 Suggested Reading King David: The Black Hebrew With Ruddy Skin and Red Hair Ruddy: Reddish Brown Skin Tones In The Bible Please Take A Moment To Share If you enjoyed this study, please take a moment to click the button below and share it.
