After traveling awhile, Naomi changed her mind and asked the daughters-in-law to return to their homes in Moab. After many tears, Orpah took Naomi's advice. But Ruth decided she would not leave, so they continued the journey together to Bethlehem.

I have written some unrecorded details that I hope will spark the imagination. Boaz and Ruth were then married and have a son. The women of the city celebrate Naomi's joy, for Naomi found a redeemer for her family name, and Naomi takes the child and places it in her bosom.

The child is named Obed, who we discover is "the father of Jesse, the father of David" (Ruth –17), that is, the grandfather of King David. For the children of the Lord, it is always true: weeping may endure for the night, but shout of joy comes in the morning.

Naomi. Naomi is the second most important woman in this story. Or is she actually the most important one. After all, the story starts and ends with her. Maybe this whole thing has been misnamed. The Book of Naomi, anyone.

The Bad Beginning. Right off the bat, Naomi gets dealt a couple pretty tough blows. The story begins with a famine “in the days when the judges ruled” (Ruth ). This was a time when the people of Israel had abandoned God’s ways and fallen into idolatry, horrific social conditions, and a disastrous civil war, as told in the chapters of Judges immediately preceding the Book of Ruth in Christian Bibles.

Ruth, Naomi & Boaz – Bible love story. The text of the Book of Ruth is one of the most beautiful stories in the Bible. It’s about loyalty: to God, to family, to each other. Ruth and Naomi Find Joy After Tragedy book and Naomi are not the sort of heroines you’d expect: Naomi is an old, sad woman.

A fictional account of the Book of Ruth. A Bitter Soul Impoverished. Widowed. Sonless. A decade-long legacy of loss, sorrow and tragedy. “Oh Lord, You have laid a burden on me that is too much to bear. Please withdraw Your hand of judgment from me.”.

Naomi decides to repay Ruth’s loyalty by helping Ruth find a new husband. As it turns out, this new husband will not only take care of Ruth, but will also take care of Naomi.

Ruth would find happiness, bring joy back into Naomi's life, take part in God's plan and even have a place in the lineage of the long awaited Savior. See Matthew Read more about Ruth in The Romance of the Book of Ruth. Read the rest of the story in The Happy Ending.

After moving to a foreign country with her family to escape a famine, she lost her husband and two sons. A pleasant woman with a full life had left Bethlehem. Now she returns as an empty, grieving widow.

Even her friends and neighbors don’t recognize her. But she is not forgotten or without. When Ruth returns to Naomi after her first day in the fields (with an abundant bounty), Naomi’s first reaction is to bless the man who owns the fields ().
