Ruth 1:14-15 King James Version (KJV) 14 And they lifted up their voice, and wept again: and Orpah kissed her mother in law; but Ruth clave unto her. 15 And she said, Behold, thy sister in law is gone back unto her people, and unto her gods: return thou after thy sister in law. Ruth 1:14-15 The Voice (VOICE) 14 At this Orpah and Ruth wailed and wept again. Then Orpah kissed Naomi, said goodbye, and returned the way she had come. Yet Ruth refused to let go of Naomi. Naomi: 15 Look at your sister-in-law. She has returned to live with her people and to worship her gods; go and follow her. The Voice (VOICE) The Voice Bible Copyright © 2012 Thomas Nelson, Inc.

These are my thoughts, please share yours. 14 They truly were going to miss each other just because Orpah did not let go did not mean she did not care but knew she needed to go back home and get on with her life, Ruth held on because she was willing to change her life rather then go away from her mother in law. 15 Naomi is actually telling Ruth to leave, Naomi would later need Ruth but often times our friends will push us away when we need them the most.
