Naomi was married and had two sons and was the mother-in-law of Ruth and Orpah as recorded in the Biblical book of Ruth. After her husband and sons had both died, she asked Ruth and Orpah to go back with their own people. Orpah went, but Ruth clung to her and stayed with Naomi. Ruth went on to marry Boaz and had a son Obed in Naomi's name who was the grandfather of King David and part of the lineage of Jesus.
