Your focus is off.

I can't do it,


I know what

is expected of me.

I'm just a shepherd.

Sit down.

I'm going to tell you a story

about hope, about trust,

about faith when we don't

understand God's plan.

It was the time

of the Judges.

The people were corrupt

and everyone did

as they saw fit.

When a great famine came upon

Israel, some families chose

to escape their plight and start

over in the pagan country

of Moab.

But soon Moab proved

to be none the better.

The crops withered

and the people suffered,

for there was no rain.

I miss you.

A miracle happened last night.

I awoke with a song in my heart,

a song only God could have

put there, a song that reminded

me of you, Elimelech.

For so long, I thought I would

never find peace again, but God

has given me that peace to

handle the memories of you.

I love you, husband.

God, thank You for that song,

thank You for that comfort.

I now ask that You give

that same comfort to my family.

Nothing grows here anymore.

My sons work day and night

in the field and still...


We're all so hungry,

but we will not give up.

You have healed my heart.

I know You can heal our land.

Please heal our land.

How did you get here?

Thank You, God, for allowing

something so beautiful to grow

in such a place.

Naomi, come quick.

It is Chilion.

Here, let me take him.

God, this must be a dream.

It's no dream, mother.

This town's put a curse

on this family.

Orpah, what happened?

He fainted.

His head fell against the well.

He'd been working out in

the fields all day and night

with nothing to eat.

Oh, oh, God, why did You

allow this to happen?

We never should have come

to this country.

Father should have kept us

in Bethlehem.

Oh, oh.


Oh, it feels good to be out


Oh, doesnt it?

Sometimes you just need a change

of scenery, just to step up

from your troubles.

I hoped Orpah would come out

today as well.

It s been 10 months since

Chilion passed.

Can't seem to get her

out of the house.

We all deal with it

in different ways.

Why did you put that back?

Wishful thinking.

We dont have enough to spend.

We have enough, Ruth,

get what you want.

I cannot.

Ruth, choose what's best

for you.

What do you think of this?

It doesn't matter what

I think, get what you want.

All right, take that one.

It brings out your eyes.

Praise be the gods, Naomi,

what are you doing out today?

Well, I thought we both

needed a smile today.

Well, a woman in your

situation should not be

out on the town.

If I had lost my husband and my

eldest son, I would be at

the temple praying to the gods.

My God does not reside

in the temple,

He resides in my heart.

I hear your crops are rather

small again this year.

And I certainly hope that

nothing happens to Mahlon

as well, otherwise,

how do you intend

to provide for my daughter?

God will provide.

I hope so.

After all, I can't imagine her

alone and desolate in this

world with no husband.



Dinner won't make itself.

Perhaps your God will

make it.

Perhaps I should start

making sacrifices to the gods.

Our fields will not prosper

simply because they are washed

in blood.

Mahlon works in the fields

and nothing grows.

Look in the fields where

Molech stands.

Molech, nor any of the other

God of Moab is the answer.

Then why haven't you been

blessed in this place?

I have been blessed,

for my son found you.

I'll see if Orpah needs

help with dinner.


Go inside, mother.

I will be done shortly.

You look weak.

You need rest.

My strength is fine.

It is the field that is weak.
