Iroh is a character from the Book of Ruth and The Book of Proverbs. In the Book of Ruth, her father has died leaving her brother Ruth to fend for themselves while she is away with her husband Abimelech. In The Book of Proverbs, he says, “The best of women is your mother.”
The uncle Iroh character in the Book of Ruth is a wicked man who is abusive of his wife. He tries to make Ruth's life difficult by telling her he cannot marry her because he is still in love with another woman. Then he threatens to kill her husband. As a result, Ruth's relationship with her brother grows to hatred.
It appears that the uncle Iroh in the Book of Proverbs is the same uncle IROH in The Book of Ruth. And just as the wicked uncle in Ruth wants to keep Ruth from marrying another man, the Uncle IROH of The Book of Proverbs is doing the same thing with his daughter.
In one place, Ruth tells her brother to tell her uncle IROH to stop talking about her husband. In another, she tells her brother that her husband was taken from her by a wicked man. In yet another place, she tells her brother to tell her uncle that she can't marry him. She tells him that the man did nothing to her and even gave her money. She told her brother that the man did not treat her with love.
Then, when the husband returns, Uncle IROH says to her, “You took the man from me. Why will you be faithful to me in all my trouble?”
The uncle in The Book of Ruth and The Book of Proverbs is abusing his daughter, and there is no doubt that her relationship with her brother is strained. But this relationship between her brother will become even more strained if her mother is killed. Once her mother is dead, the uncle in The Book of Ruth and The Book of Proverbs will be even more abusive to her.
Uncle IROH has a lot to answer for. One wonders how much time passed before someone put together an uncle Iroh wallpaper for his own daughter. If the uncle in The Book of Ruth really loves his daughter, he would want to protect her and keep her safe. Wouldn't he want to make sure she does not become involved with someone who will hurt her?
As I sit here thinking about it, I can see that the uncle in The Book of Ruth would be an awful person. But if someone put together an uncle IROH wallpaper, which has the uncle IROH in it, which is the father in it, which is Uncle Iroh, which is a terrible person, it would be a good idea. And then it would be very upsetting.
So I am thinking about whether or not Uncle Iroh is in a place where he has the opportunity to do something good for his daughter. It seems unlikely that he is. But if someone put a wallpaper of Uncle Iroh on their daughter's computer and then sent it to her, there is a good chance she would think about what the uncle in The Book of Ruth would say if he were here.
And that may make her think twice before she acted on it. Or perhaps she could read what he would say and come to see that the uncle is not the person she thought he was. if he really did act on the wallpaper. and then do something about it.
Of course, he would not like that at all. He is quite old and doesn't want to take the blame. The whole point of the wallpaper is that his daughter is so upset about the fact that she was made to marry a murderer that she is ready to make the choice to commit suicide. And in the end, there is just no reason why she should not use it.
So I ask, what would Uncle Iroh do? Would he send it to his daughter's computer? Would he give it to her? Would he even believe what she was saying in it?
