Bible: Ruth 1:11-13

1:11 But Naomi replied, “Go back home, my daughters! There is no reason for you to return to Judah with me! 1  I am no longer capable of giving birth to sons who might become your husbands! 2  1:12 Go back home, my daughters! For I am too old to get married again. 3  Even if I thought that there was hope that I could get married tonight and conceive sons, 4  1:13 surely you would not want to wait until they were old enough to marry! 5  Surely you would not remain unmarried all that time! 6  No, 7  my daughters, you must not return with me. 8  For my intense suffering 9  is too much for you to bear. 10  For the Lord is afflicting me! 11
