In this chapter we have Naomi's afflictions. I. As a distressed housekeeper, forced by famine to remove into the land of Moab, ver. 1, 2. II. As a mournful widow and mother, bewailing the death of her husband and her two sons, ver. 3-5. III. As a careful mother-in-law, desirous to be kind to her two daughters, but at a loss how to be so when she returns to her own country, ver. 6-13. Orpah she parts with in sorrow, ver. 14. Ruth she takes with her in fear, ver. 15-18. IV. As a poor woman sent back to the place of her first settlement, to be supported by the kindness of her friends, ver. 19-22. All these things were melancholy and seemed against her, and yet all were working for good.
