And Ruth said
Language: English 
And Ruth said:
Entreat 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 I will die
And there will I be buried.
The Lord do so to me, and more also, 
If aught but death part thee and me.
