Israel’s first King was handsome in every way, but he did not walk with the Lord. Because he was lacking God’s traits within, God would sweep him away and anointed a new king for Israel. Samuel was sent to anoint that new king. God told him to ignore his outer appearance, but to seek a man with a heart for God. God led Samuel to David, who did have a heart for God and who was the great-grandson of Boaz and Ruth. (Jesus was born into the family of David) Years would pass before David would be crowned the king.
