4One of the daughters-in-law, Orpah, returned to her
people in Moab. The other daughter -in-law, Ruth,
said that she would stay with Naomi. It was during
this conversation that Ruth said these words which
have become the basis for many Christian wedding
vows: 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: Where thou diest,
will I die, and there will I be buried: the Lord do so to
me, and more also, if ought but death part thee and
me.
