Ruth 1:11

11 But Naomi replied, "Return home, my daughters. Why do you want to go with me? Am I able to have any more sons[a] who could become your husbands?

Ruth 1:11 In-Context

9 May the Lord enable each of you to find security in the house of your [new] husband." She kissed them, and they wept loudly.
10 "No," they said to her. "We will go with you to your people."
11 But Naomi replied, "Return home, my daughters. Why do you want to go with me? Am I able to have any more sons who could become your husbands?
12 Return home, my daughters. Go on, for I am too old to have another husband. Even if I thought there was [still] hope for me to have a husband tonight and to bear sons,
13 would you be willing to wait for them to grow up? Would you restrain yourselves from remarrying? No, my daughters, [my life] is much too bitter for you [to share], because the Lord's hand has turned against me."
