Ruth Declares her Loyalty to Naomi

An elderly Naomi rides on a donkey and reaches out a hand to move Ruth from her way. Ruth looks up into Naomi’s half-hidden face, declaring her loyalty to her. In the background, a figure standing on the far side of a crumbling bridge may be Orpah, who has already turned back to Moab.
