Ruth professes her loyalty to Naomi in Chapter 1, verse 16: ?Where you go, I will go; where you lodge, I will lodge; your people shall be my people, and your God my God?? The Book of Ruth is traditionally read on the Jewish holiday of Shauvot? In Jewish bibles, Ruth is in a section of ?Writings? that starts with Psalms and Proverbs. In the Old Testament section of Christian bibles it comes earlier, after Joshua and Judges. Most scholars believe it was written between 950 and 700 B.C.
