#506: Ruth 1:16

Entreat me not to leave you, or to return from following after you, For where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people, and your God will be my God. And where you die, I will die and there I will be buried. May the Lord do with me and more if anything but death parts you from me.

There's a musical setting by David Haas that combines that text with text from the Song of Songs that I've been thinking about using in my ceremony. I love the text!

Thanks for the link (I'm Miss Cheese). While I've seen many different versions of that verse, this one -- a little more casual, more "English" -- is by far my favorite.

My DH and I used that verse as the basis for our vows. Beautiful!

It's a very sweet reading, but keep in mind that Ruth was talking to her mother-in-law Naomi, rather than to anyone romantic in her life.

One of my favorites.

Yeah, knowing the context of those verses makes them loving and beautiful, but not at all romantic. I couldn't see using them in a wedding.
