But then they, like their father, also die prematurely, so that Naomi is left alone with her daughters­in­law, Ruth and Orpah.  Now she wishes for them the same kind treatment from God.  And their chances of finding other husbands will be better among their own people. Naomi tells her daughters­in­law that with her they have no hope of security, since she is too old to have any more sons (1:11), and even if she could remarry and bear sons, they would have to wait until the sons were grown to marry them (1:12–13).

Ruth's unselfish love shines through.  Naomi's respect for and confidence in Boaz is apparent in her final statement to Ruth in this scene that he will not rest until he has settled the matter that very day (3:18).  At any rate, Boaz presents the case as a matter of land to be redeemed, bought back into the family heritage (4:4).  Thus, the man would not recover his investment and would in fact diminish the inheritance he will leave to his other children.

For the moment, however, it is enough to observe that keeping Rahab and her household alive, however many they were, undermines the "devotion'' of Jericho and prevents it from being complete.  Only after Achan's sin is confessed (7:16–21), and atoned for by obliterating him, his family, and his property (7:22–26), are the Israelites able to return to Ai and take it (8:1–23).  The final result comes in 11:23: Joshua took all the land according to all that Yahweh had told Moses, and Joshua gave it as an inheritance to Israel according to their allotments by their tribes.
