with great constancy accompanieth her mother in law.
said, Behold, thy sister in law is gone back unto her people,
and unto her gods: return thou after thy sister in law.
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: 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. When she saw that she was stedfastly minded
to go with her, then she left speaking unto her. (KJV)
