Excerpt from Ruth's speech in Act 1 of Ruth: A Play

Ruth:      Intreat me not to leave thee or to stay
               from foll’wing after only thee now. For
               whither thou goest I will go, and where
               thou lodgest I will lodge; and evermore
               thy people shall become my people there,
               and so thy God my God. And more shall be,
               for where thou diest, will I die, and there
               will I be burièd. The Lord do so to me,
               and more also, if ought but death, I swear,
               part thee and me.
