Women of the Hebrew Bible, Part 7: Ruth

 

Ruth (c) 2010 Sheila Orysiek

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

By Sheila Orysiek

Last in a series of seven about women of the Hebrew Bible illustrating the moment in their lives when they were at pivotal point, contributed significantly to subsequent events and/or set a precedent in the history of our people.

The original pen and ink measured 16 x 20
