Ruth 1:6-7 (NLT)
6 Then Naomi heard in Moab that the Lord had blessed his people in Judah by giving them good crops again. So Naomi and her daughters-in-law got ready to leave Moab to return to her homeland. 7 With her two daughters-in-law she set out from the place where she had been living, and they took the road that would lead them back to Judah.
TIME OF DAY:
I have set the scene in the early morning.
The early morning sun is gently lighting this scene, casting feint shadows to the right of figures and objects.
In the foreground we can see Naomi (in green head scarf) waving to the crowd of well-wishers. To her right is Ruth and behind them both is Orpah All three are carrying their belongings in large sacks, slung over their shoulders.
This scene is set just outside an un-named Moabite walled town. Naomi & the girl’s friends and family are waving goodbye to the trio, as they set out back to Israel.
This is what the scene looks like without the foreground figures:
