Naomi

The mother-in-law of Ruth

Naomi migrated from Bethlehem to Moab.  There her husband and two sons died.   Naomi returned to Bethlehem with her daughter in law Ruth, who gleaned grain in the field of a man named Boaz.  When Boaz showed kindness, Naomi sent Ruth to meet him by night. Boaz married Ruth and King David was their great grandson.
