Ruth explains why she returns with Naomi to Bethlehem.
Ruth ch1

The young widow goes to a strange land
It was an impassioned speech, I don’t know where it came from.
I would go with her wherever she went.
Stay wherever she did.
And I would identify myself with her people, the Jews and not the Moabites.
I would take on their God, rather than the familiar one of my own people.
And I would die and be buried with her family, even though my own husband was left buried in Moab.
Did I really mean that?
