Negative Descriptions of Orpah in Rabbinic Tradition

Barry Dov Walfish has a fascinating post here on how Orpah in the book of Ruth is defamed including the idea that she was the mother of Goliath. While this is an interesting read, it also serves as good reminder of how one needs to proceed with great caution in utilizing rabbinic tradition in interpreting the Bible.
