Ruth 1:13 Parallel
CommentaryKeil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament
After the loss of her husband and her two sons, Naomi rose up out of the fields of Moab to return into the land of Judah, as she had heard that Jehovah had visited His people, i.e., had turned His favour towards them again to give them bread. From the place where she had lived Naomi went forth, along with her two daughters-in-law. These three went on the way to return to the land of Judah. The expression "to return," if taken strictly, only applies to Naomi, who really returned to Judah, whilst her daughters-in-law simply wished to accompany her thither.

Whenever they marched out, the hand of the LORD was against them for harm, as the LORD had warned, and as the LORD had sworn to them. And they were in terrible distress.
Turn back, my daughters; go your way, for I am too old to have a husband. If I should say I have hope, even if I should have a husband this night and should bear sons,
Then they lifted up their voices and wept again. And Orpah kissed her mother-in-law, but Ruth clung to her.
Have mercy on me, have mercy on me, O you my friends, for the hand of God has touched me!
For day and night your hand was heavy upon me; my strength was dried up as by the heat of summer. Selah
