Ruth 1:16 - And Ruth said, Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God:
The widow Ruth lives in the land Moab, as does her mother-in-law Naomi. When Naomi wants to return to Bethlehem, where she was born, Ruth wants to go with her. To convince Naomi to take her, Ruth promises never to leave her.
