SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:17 Donde tú murieres, moriré yo , y allí seré sepultada; así me haga el SEÑOR, y así me dé, que sólo la muerte hará separación entre mí y ti.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Ruth 1:17 Verse 17. The Lord do so to me, and more] May he inflict any of those punishments on me, and any worse punishment, if I part from thee till death. And it appears that she was true to her engagement; for Naomi was nourished in the house of Boaz in her old age, and became the fosterer and nurse of their son Obed, chap. iv. 15, 16.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 17. Where thou diest will I die, and there will I be buried , etc.] She was determined to abide with her unto death, and not only was desirous to die as she did, but where she should die; in the same country, cottage, and bed, and be laid in the same grave, in hope of rising together at the resurrection of the just; having no regard at all to the sepulchres of her fathers, which people in all ages and countries have been fond of being laid in, as an honour and happiness. So with the Greeks and Romans, not only relations, but intimate friends, and such as had a strong affection for each other, were sometimes buried in the same grave, as Crates and Polemon f f23 , Paris and Oenome f24 , and others f25 ; (see Galatians 2:20 Colossians 2:12 3:1), the Lord do so to me, and more also, if ought but death part thee and me ; this is the form of oath she used for confirmation of what she had said, and to put an end to the debate on this subject; what she imprecates upon herself is not expressed, should she otherwise do than what she swears to; leaving Naomi to supply it in her own mind, and as being what was not fit to be named, and the greatest evil that could be thought to befall a perjured person.
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.
