CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
11:24 Wilt not thou - He speaks according to their absurd opinion: the Ammonites and Moabites got their land by conquest of the old inhabitants, whom they cast out; and this success, though given them by the true God, for Lot's sake, Deut 2:9,19, they impiously ascribe to their god Chemosh, whose gift they owned to be a sufficient title.

"Look," Naomi said to her, "your sister-in-law has gone back to her people and to her gods. You should do the same."
