SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:15 Y ella dijo: He aquí tu cuñada se ha vuelto a su pueblo y a sus dioses; vuélvete tú tras ella.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Ruth 1:15 Verse 15. Gone back-unto her gods] They were probably both idolaters, their having been proselytes is an unfounded conjecture. Chemosh was the grand idol of the Moabites. The conversion of Ruth probably commenced at this time.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 15. And she said , etc.] That is, Naomi to Ruth, after Orpah was gone: behold, thy sister in law is gone back unto her people, and unto her gods ; meaning Orpah, who was the wife of her husband’s brother, as the word used signifies; she was not only on the road turning back to her own country and people, but to the gods thereof, Baalpeor or Priapus, and Chemosh, ( Numbers 21:29 25:3) from whence Aben Ezra concludes, that she had been a proselyte to the true religion, and had renounced the gods of her nation, and retained the same profession while her husband lived, and unto this time, and now apostatized, since she is said to go back to her gods; and in this he is followed by some Christian interpreters f21 , and not without reason: return thou after thy sister in law : this she said, not that in good earnest she desired her to return, at least to her former religion, only relates, though not as approving of, the conduct of her sister, rather as upbraiding it; but to try her sincerity and steadfastness, when such an instance and example was before her.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 15-18 - See Ruth's resolution, and her good affection to Naomi. Orpah was lot to part from her; yet she did not love her well enough to leave Moa for her sake. Thus, many have a value and affection for Christ, ye come short of salvation by him, because they will not forsake othe things for him. They love him, yet leave him, because they do not love him enough, but love other things better. Ruth is an example of the grace of God, inclining the soul to choose the better part. Naomi coul desire no more than the solemn declaration Ruth made. See the power of resolution; it silences temptation. Those that go in religious way without a stedfast mind, stand like a door half open, which invites thief; but resolution shuts and bolts the door, resists the devil an forces him to flee.
