Now it cameH1961 to pass in the daysH3117 when the judgesH8199 ruled,H8199 that there was a famineH7458 in the land.H776 And a certain manH376 of BethlehemjudahH1035 wentH3212 to sojournH1481 in the countryH7704 of Moab,H4124 he, and his wife,H802 and his twoH8147 sons.H1121
And the nameH8034 of the manH376 was Elimelech,H458 and the nameH8034 of his wifeH802 Naomi,H5281 and the nameH8034 of his twoH8147 sonsH1121 MahlonH4248 and Chilion,H3630 EphrathitesH673 of Bethlehemjudah.H1035 And they cameH935 into the countryH7704 of Moab,H4124 and continuedH1961 there.H8033
And ElimelechH458 Naomi'sH5281 husbandH376 died;H4191 and she was left,H7604 and her twoH8147 sons.H1121
And they tookH5375 them wivesH802 of the womenH802 of Moab;H4125 the nameH8034 of the oneH259 was Orpah,H6204 and the nameH8034 of the otherH8145 Ruth:H7327 and they dwelledH3427 thereH8033 about tenH6235 years.H8141
And MahlonH4248 and ChilionH3630 diedH4191 alsoH1571 bothH8147 of them; and the womanH802 was leftH7604 of her twoH8147 sonsH3206 and her husband.H376
Then she aroseH6965 with her daughtersH3618 in law,H3618 that she might returnH7725 from the countryH7704 of Moab:H4124 for she had heardH8085 in the countryH7704 of MoabH4124 how that the LORDH3068 had visitedH6485 his peopleH5971 in givingH5414 them bread.H3899
Why she wentH3318 forthH3318 out of the placeH4725 whereH834 H8033 she was, and her twoH8147 daughtersH3618 in lawH3618 with her; and they wentH3212 on the wayH1870 to returnH7725 to the landH776 of Judah.H3063
And NaomiH5281 saidH559 to her twoH8147 daughtersH3618 in law,H3618 Go,H3212 returnH7725 eachH802 to her mother'sH517 house:H1004 the LORDH3068 dealH6213 kindlyH2617 with you, as you have dealtH6213 with the dead,H4191 and with me.
The LORDH3068 grantH5414 you that you may findH4672 rest,H4496 eachH802 of you in the houseH1004 of her husband.H376 Then she kissedH5401 them; and they liftedH5375 up their voice,H6963 and wept.H1058
And they saidH559 to her, SurelyH3588 we will returnH7725 with you to your people.H5971
And NaomiH5281 said,H559 TurnH7725 again,H7725 my daughters:H1323 whyH4100 will you goH3212 with me? are there yetH5750 any more sonsH1121 in my womb,H4578 that they may be your husbands?H582
TurnH7725 again,H7725 my daughters,H1323 goH3212 your way; for I am too oldH2204 to have an husband.H376 IfH3588 I should say,H559 I have hope,H8615 ifH3588 I should have an husbandH376 alsoH1571 to night,H3915 and should alsoH1571 bearH3205 sons;H1121
Would you tarryH7663 for them tillH5704 they were grown?H1431 would you stayH5702 for them from having husbands?H376 no,H408 my daughters;H1323 for it grievesH4843 me muchH3966 for your sakes that the handH3027 of the LORDH3068 is goneH3318 out against me.
And they liftedH5375 up their voice,H6963 and weptH1058 again:H5750 and OrpahH6204 kissedH5401 her motherH2545 in law;H2545 but RuthH7327 joinedH1692 to her.
And she said,H559 Behold,H2009 your sisterH2994 in lawH2994 is goneH7725 backH7725 to her people,H5971 and to her gods:H430 returnH7725 you afterH310 your sisterH2994 in law.H2994
And RuthH7327 said,H559 EntreatH6293 me not to leaveH5800 you, or to returnH7725 from following afterH310 you: for whereH413 H834 you go,H3212 I will go;H3212 and whereH834 you lodge,H3885 I will lodge:H3885 your peopleH5971 shall be my people,H5971 and your GodH430 my God:H430
WhereH834 you die,H4191 will I die,H4191 and thereH8033 will I be buried:H6912 the LORDH3068 doH6213 soH3541 to me, and moreH3254 also,H3541 ifH3588 ought but deathH4194 partH6504 you and me.
When she sawH7200 that she was steadfastlyH553 minded to goH3212 with her, then she leftH2308 speakingH1696 to her.
So they twoH8147 wentH3212 untilH5704 they cameH935 to Bethlehem.H1035 And it cameH1961 to pass, when they were comeH935 to Bethlehem,H1035 that allH3605 the cityH5892 was movedH1949 aboutH5921 them, and they said,H559 Is thisH2063 Naomi?H5281
And she saidH559 to them, CallH7121 me not Naomi,H5281 callH7121 me Mara:H4755 for the AlmightyH7706 has dealt veryH3966 bitterlyH4843 with me.
I wentH1980 out full H4390and the LORDH3068 has broughtH7725 me homeH7725 againH7725 empty:H7387 whyH4100 then callH7121 you me Naomi,H5281 seeing the LORDH3068 has testifiedH6030 against me, and the AlmightyH7706 has afflictedH7489 me?
So NaomiH5281 returned,H7725 and RuthH7327 the Moabitess,H4125 her daughterH3618 in law,H3618 with her, which returnedH7725 out of the countryH7704 of Moab:H4124 and they cameH935 to BethlehemH1035 in the beginningH8462 of barleyH8184 harvest.H7105
