Ruth clings to Naomi, her Mother-in-law, in the desert, on the way to Bethlehem. Ruth says to Naomi, ‘Do not urge me to leave you. Wherever you go, I will go; where you lodge, I will lodge; your people are my people, and your God is my God’. (Ruth 1:16)
I have depicted Ruth clinging to Naomi, her Mother-in-law, in the desert, on the way to Bethlehem. Ruth says to Naomi, ‘Do not urge me to leave you. Wherever you go, I will go; where you lodge, I will lodge; your people are my people, and your God is my God’. (Ruth 1:16)
Ruth was so dedicated to her mother in law, Naomi, and to G-d, that she did not want to go back to Moab, rather to go with Naomi to Bethlehem, as shown in this famous passage.
