When she saw that she was determined to go with her, she said no more to her. Bible

“was determined.” The Hebrew verb is a participle and thus expresses persistence as well as the determination. Ruth did not waver in her decision.

“she said no more to her.” After Naomi experienced Ruth’s determination to be with her and go to Israel, she said no more to Ruth about returning to Moab. Ruth 1:18 is the end of the dialogue between Ruth and Naomi, and the scene now changes to Bethlehem and the reaction and reception that Naomi and Ruth received at Bethlehem.
