  1 H3117 Now it came to pass in the days H8199 [H8802] when the judges H8199 [H8800] ruled, H7458 that there was a famine H776 in the land. H376 And a certain man H1035 H3063 of Bethlehemjudah H3212 [H8799] went H1481 [H8800] to dwell H7704 in the country H4124 of Moab, H802 he, and his wife, H8147 and his two H1121 sons.
  2 H8034 And the name H376 of the man H458 was Elimelech, H8034 and the name H802 of his wife H5281 Naomi, H8034 and the name H8147 of his two H1121 sons H4248 Mahlon H3630 and Chilion, H673 Ephrathites H1035 H3063 of Bethlehemjudah. H935 [H8799] And they came H7704 into the country H4124 of Moab, and continued there.
  3 H458 And Elimelech H5281 Naomi's H376 husband H4191 [H8799] died; H7604 [H8735] and she was left, H8147 and her two H1121 sons.
  4 H5375 [H8799] And they took H802 for themselves wives H802 of the women H4125 of Moab; H8034 the name H259 of the one H6204 was Orpah, H8034 and the name H8145 of the other H7327 Ruth: H3427 [H8799] and they dwelt H6235 there about ten H8141 years.
  5 H4248 And Mahlon H3630 and Chilion H4191 [H8799] died H8147 also both H802 of them; and the woman H7604 [H8735] was left H8147 without her two H3206 sons H376 and her husband.
  6 H6965 [H8799] Then she arose H3618 with her daughters in law, H7725 [H8799] that she might return H7704 from the country H4124 of Moab: H8085 [H8804] for she had heard H7704 in the country H4124 of Moab H3068 how that the LORD H6485 [H8804] had visited H5971 his people H5414 [H8800] in giving H3899 them food.
  7 H3318 [H8799] Therefore she went forth H4725 from the place H8147 where she was, and her two H3618 daughters in law H3212 [H8799] with her; and they went H1870 on the way H7725 [H8800] to return H776 to the land H3063 of Judah.
  8 H5281 And Naomi H559 [H8799] said H8147 to her two H3618 daughters in law, H3212 [H8798] Go, H7725 [H8798] return H802 each H517 to her mother's H1004 house: H3068 the LORD H6213 [H8799] deal H2617 kindly H6213 [H8804] with you, as ye have dealt H4191 [H8801] with the dead, and with me.
  9 H3068 The LORD H5414 [H8799] grant H4672 [H8798] you that ye may find H4496 rest, H802 each H1004 of you in the house H376 of her husband. H5401 [H8799] Then she kissed H5375 [H8799] them; and they lifted up H6963 their voice, H1058 [H8799] and wept.
  10 H559 [H8799] And they said H7725 [H8799] to her, Surely we will return H5971 with thee to thy people.
  11 H5281 And Naomi H559 [H8799] said, H7725 [H8798] Turn again, H1323 my daughters: H3212 [H8799] why will ye go H1121 with me? are there yet any more sons H4578 in my womb, H582 that they may be your husbands?
  12 H7725 [H8798] Turn again, H1323 my daughters, H3212 [H8798] go H2204 [H8804] your way; for I am too old H376 to have an husband. H559 [H8804] If I should say, H3426 I have H8615 hope, H376 if I should have an husband H3915 also to night, H3205 [H8804] and should also bear H1121 sons;
  13 H7663 [H8762] Would ye wait H3860 for them H1431 [H8799] till they should be grown? H5702 [H8735] would ye restrain H3860 yourselves H376 from having husbands? H1323 nay, my daughters; H4843 [H8804] for it grieveth H3966 me much H3027 for your sakes that the hand H3068 of the LORD H3318 [H8804] hast gone out against me.
  14 H5375 [H8799] And they lifted up H6963 their voice, H1058 [H8799] and wept again: H6204 and Orpah H5401 [H8799] kissed H2545 her mother in law; H7327 but Ruth H1692 [H8804] clung to her.
  15 H559 [H8799] And she said, H2994 Behold, thy sister in law H7725 [H8804] hath gone back H5971 to her people, H430 and to her gods: H7725 [H8798] return H310 thou after H2994 thy sister in law.
  16 H7327 And Ruth H559 [H8799] said, H6293 [H8799] Entreat H5800 [H8800] me not to leave H7725 [H8800] thee, or to turn away H310 from following H3212 [H8799] thee: for where thou goest, H3212 [H8799] I will go; H3885 [H8799] and where thou lodgest, H3885 [H8799] I will lodge: H5971 thy people H5971 shall be my people, H430 and thy God H430 my God:
  17 H4191 [H8799] Where thou diest, H4191 [H8799] will I die, H6912 [H8735] and there will I be buried: H3068 the LORD H6213 [H8799] do H3254 [H8686] so to me, and more H4194 also, if any thing but death H6504 [H8686] shall part thee and me.
  18 H7200 [H8799] When she saw H553 [H8693] that she was steadfastly resolved H3212 [H8800] to go H2308 [H8799] with her, then she finished H1696 [H8763] speaking to her.
  19 H8147 So they two H3212 [H8799] went H935 [H8800] until they came H1035 to Bethlehem. H935 [H8800] And it came to pass, when they had come H1035 to Bethlehem, H5892 that all the city H1949 [H8735] was moved H559 [H8799] about them, and they said, H5281 Is this Naomi?
  20 H559 [H8799] And she said H7121 [H8799] to them, Call H5281 me not Naomi, H7121 [H8798] call H4755 me Mara: H7706 for the Almighty H3966 hath dealt very H4843 [H8689] bitterly with me.
  21 H1980 [H8804] I went out H4392 full, H3068 and the LORD H7725 [H8689] hath brought me home again H7387 empty: H7121 [H8799] why then call H5281 ye me Naomi, H3068 seeing the LORD H6030 [H8804] hath testified H7706 against me, and the Almighty H7489 [H8689] hath afflicted me?
  22 H5281 So Naomi H7725 [H8799] returned, H7327 and Ruth H4125 the Moabitess, H3618 her daughter in law, H7725 [H8804] with her, who returned H7704 from the country H4124 of Moab: H935 [H8804] and they came H1035 to Bethlehem H8462 in the beginning H8184 of barley H7105 harvest.

Clementine_Vulgate(i) 1 In diebus unius judicis, quando judices præerant, facta est fames in terra. Abiitque homo de Bethlehem Juda, ut peregrinaretur in regione Moabitide cum uxore sua ac duobus liberis. 2 Ipse vocabatur Elimelech, et uxor ejus Noëmi: et duo filii, alter Mahalon, et alter Chelion, Ephrathæi de Bethlehem Juda. Ingressique regionem Moabitidem, morabantur ibi. 3 Et mortuus est Elimelech maritus Noëmi: remansitque ipsa cum filiis. 4 Qui acceperunt uxores Moabitidas, quarum una vocabatur Orpha, altera vero Ruth. Manseruntque ibi decem annis, 5 et ambo mortui sunt, Mahalon videlicet et Chelion: remansitque mulier orbata duobus liberis ac marito. 6 Et surrexit ut in patriam pergeret cum utraque nuru sua de regione Moabitide: audierat enim quod respexisset Dominus populum suum, et dedisset eis escas. 7 Egressa est itaque de loco peregrinationis suæ, cum utraque nuru: et jam in via revertendi posita in terram Juda, 8 dixit ad eas: Ite in domum matris vestræ: faciat vobiscum Dominus misericordiam, sicut fecistis cum mortuis, et mecum. 9 Det vobis invenire requiem in domibus virorum quos sortituræ estis. Et osculata est eas. Quæ elevata voce flere cœperunt, 10 et dicere: Tecum pergemus ad populum tuum. 11 Quibus illa respondit: Revertimini, filiæ meæ, cur venitis mecum? num ultra habeo filios in utero meo, ut viros ex me sperare possitis? 12 Revertimini, filiæ meæ, et abite: jam enim senectute confecta sum, nec apta vinculo conjugali: etiamsi possem hac nocte concipere, et parere filios, 13 si eos expectare velitis donec crescant, et annos pubertatis impleant, ante eritis vetulæ quam nubatis. Nolite, quæso, filiæ meæ: quia vestra angustia magis me premit, et egressa est manus Domini contra me. 14 Elevata igitur voce, rursum flere cœperunt: Orpha osculata est socrum, ac reversa est; Ruth adhæsit socrui suæ: 15 cui dixit Noëmi: En reversa est cognata tua ad populum suum, et ad deos suos, vade cum ea. 16 Quæ respondit: Ne adverseris mihi ut relinquam te et abeam: quocumque enim perrexeris, pergam, et ubi morata fueris, et ego pariter morabor. Populus tuus populus meus, et Deus tuus Deus meus. 17 Quæ te terra morientem susceperit, in ea moriar: ibique locum accipiam sepulturæ. Hæc mihi faciat Dominus, et hæc addat, si non sola mors me et te separaverit. 18 Videns ergo Noëmi quod obstinato animo Ruth decrevisset secum pergere, adversari noluit, nec ad suos ultra reditum persuadere: 19 profectæque sunt simul, et venerunt in Bethlehem. Quibus urbem ingressis, velox apud cunctos fama percrebruit: dicebantque mulieres: Hæc est illa Noëmi. 20 Quibus ait: Ne vocetis me Noëmi (id est, pulchram), sed vocate me Mara (id est, amaram), quia amaritudine valde replevit me Omnipotens. 21 Egressa sum plena, et vacuam reduxit me Dominus. Cur ergo vocatis me Noëmi, quam Dominus humiliavit, et afflixit Omnipotens? 22 Venit ergo Noëmi cum Ruth Moabitide nuru sua, de terra peregrinationis suæ: ac reversa est in Bethlehem, quando primum hordea metebantur.
Wycliffe(i) 1 In the daies of o iuge, whanne iugis weren souereynes, hungur was maad in the lond; and a man of Bethleem of Juda yede to be a pylgrym in the cuntrei of Moab, with his wijf and twey fre sones. 2 He was clepid Elymelech, and his wijf Noemy, and the twey sones, `the oon was clepid Maalon, and the tother Chelion, Effrateis of Bethleem of Juda; and thei entriden in to the cuntrey of Moab, and dwelliden there. 3 And Elymelech, the hosebonde of Noemy, diede, and sche lefte with the sones; 4 and thei token wyues of Moab, of whiche wyues oon was clepid Orpha, the tother Ruth.

Coverdale(i) 1 In ye tyme whan the Iudges ruled, there was a derth in the londe. And there wente a ma from Bethlee Iuda to take his iourney into the londe of the Moabites wt his wife and two sonnes, 2 which man was called EliMelech, and his wife Naemi, & his two sonnes, the one Mahelon, and the other Chilion: these were Ephrates of Bethleem Iuda. And whan they came in to the londe of ye Moabites, they dwelt there. 3 And Eli Melech Naemis husbande dyed, & she was left behinde wt hir two sonnes, 4 which toke Moabitish wyues: the one was called Arpa, the other Ruth. And whan they had dwelt there ten yeare, 5 they dyed both, Mahelon and Chilion, so that the woman remayned desolate of both hir sonnes and hir husbande. 6 Then gat she her vp wt both hir sonnes wyues, & wente agayne out of the lode of ye Moabites (for she had herde in the londe of the Moabites, yt the LORDE had visited his people & geuen them bred) 7 & so she departed from ye place where she was, & both hir sonnes wyues wt her. And as they wete by the waye to come agayne into the londe of Iuda, 8 she sayde vnto both hir sonnes wyues: Go yor waye, & turne backe ether of you to hir mothers house: the LORDE shewe mercy vpon you, as ye haue done on the yt are deed & on me. 9 The LORDE graunte you, yt ye maie fynde rest ether of you in hir husbades house (whom ye shal get) and she kyssed them. Then lift they vp their voyce, and wepte, 10 & sayde vnto her: We wil go with the vnto yi people. 11 But Naemi sayde: Turne agayne my doughters, why wolde ye go with me? How can I haue children eny more in my body, to be youre husbandes? 12 Turne agayne my doughters, and go youre waye, for I am now to olde to take an husbande. And though I shulde saye: I hope this night to take an husbande & to brynge forth children, 13 yet coulde ye not tary tlll they were growne vp: for ye shulde be to olde, so that ye coulde haue no husbandes. No my doughters, therfore am I sory for you, for ye hade of the LORDE is gone forth ouer me. 14 Then lifte they vp their voyce, and wepte yet more, and Arpa kyssed hir mother in lawe (and turned backe againe) but Ruth abode styll by her. 15 Neuertheles she sayde: Beholde, thy syster in lawe is turned backe vnto hir people and to hir god, turne thou againe also after thy sister in lawe. 16 Ruth answered: Speake not to me therof, that I shulde forsake the, and turne backe from the: whithersoeuer thou goest, thither wil I go also: and loke where thou abydest, there wil I abide also: Thy people is my people, & thy God is my God. 17 Loke where thou diest, there wil dye, and euen there wil I also be buried. The LORDE do this and that vnto me, death onely shal departe vs. 18 Now whan she sawe, that she was stedfastly mynded to go with her, she spake nomore to her therof. 19 So they wente on both together, till they came vnto Bethleem. And whan they were come in to Bethleem, the whole cite was moued ouer them, and sayde Is not this Naemi? 20 Neuerthelesse she sayde vnto them: call me not Naemi, but Mara: for the Allmightie hath made me very sory. 21 I departed full, but the LORDE hath brought me home agayne emptye.

Wherefore a certain man of Bethlehem Judah went for to sojourn in the country of Moab with his wife and two sons. 2 The name of the man was Elimelech, and his wife Naomi, and the names of his two sons were Mahlon and Chilion and they were Ephraimites, out of Bethlehem Judah. And when they came into the land of Moab, they continued there. 3 And Elimelech, Naomi's husband, died; and she remained with her two sons 4 which took them wives of the nations of the Moabites: the one's name Orpah and the other's Ruth. And when they had dwelled there about a ten years, 5 Mahlon and Chilion died also; even both two of them, so that the wife was left desolate of her two sons and of her husband thereto. 6 Then she stood up with her daughters-in-law and returned from the country of Moab: for she had heard say, being in the country of Moab, how that the LORD hath visited his people and given them food. 7 Wherefore she departed out of the place where she was, and her two daughters with her. And as they went by the way returning unto the land of Judah, 8 Naomi said unto her two daughters-in-law, "Go, and return each of you unto your mother's house. The LORD deal as kindly with you, as ye have dealt with the dead, and with me." 9 And the LORD grant you that you may find rest, either of you in the house of her husband." And so she kissed them. 10 Then they cried and wept and said unto her, "We will go with thee unto thy folk." 11 But Naomi said, "Turn again my daughters: for what cause would you go with me? Think you that there be any more children in my bowels to be your husbands? 12 Turn again my daughters and go: for I am too old to have a husband. If I said I have hope, also if I took a man this night: yea, and though I had already borne sons? 13 Would ye tarry after them, till they were of age? Or would ye for them so long refrain from taking of husbands? Not so, my daughters: for it grieveth me much for your sakes, that the hand of the LORD is gone out against me." 14 Therewith they cried and wept again. Howbeit, Orpah kissed her mother-in-law but Ruth abode still by her. 15 Then she said, "See, thy sister-in-law is gone back again unto her people and unto her god: return thou after her." 16 But Ruth said, "Entreat me not to leave thee, and to return from after thee. For whither thou goest, I will go. And where thou dwellest, there I will dwell. Thy people are my people, and thy God is my God. 17 Where thou diest, I will die, and there will be buried. The LORD do so and so to me, except that death only depart thee and me asunder." 18 When she saw that she would needs go with her, she left speaking unto her. 19 And so they went both together until they came to Bethlehem. And when they were come to Bethlehem, it was noised through all the city, and the women said, "Is not this Naomi?" 20 But she said unto them, "Call me not Naomi: call me Mara, for the Almighty hath made me very bitter. 21 I went out full: but the LORD hath brought me home empty. Why should ye then call me Naomi: seeing the LORD hath humbled me, and the Almighty hath brought me unto adversity?" 22 And the time when Naomi with Ruth the Moabitess, her daughter-in-law, returned out of the country of Moab and came to Bethlehem was in the beginning of barley harvest.

Wherfore a certayn man of Bethlehem Iuda went for to soiourne in the countrey of Moab wyth his wyfe and two sonnes. 2 The name of the man was Elymelec, and his wyfe Noemi, and the names of his two sonnes were, Mahalon and Chilion and they were Ephraites, oute of Bethlehem Iuda. And when they came into the lande of Moab, they contynued there. 3 And Elemilec Noemies husbande dyed, and she remayned with her two sonnes, 4 which toke them wyues of the nacions of the Moabites: the ones name Orphah and the others Ruth. And when they had dwelleth there about a ten yere, 5 Mahalon and Chilion dyed also euen both two of them, so that the wyfe was lefte desolate of her two sonnes & of her husband therto. 6 Then she stode vp wt her doughters in lawe and returned from the countrey of Moab: for she had heard saye, beyng in the countrey of Moab, howe that the Lorde had visited his people and geuen them fode. 7 Wherfore she departed oute of the place where she was and her two doughters wyth her. And as they went by the waye returning vnto the land of Iuda, 8 Noemi sayd vnto her two doughters in lawe: go and returne eche of you vnto youre mothers house: the Lorde deale as kyndlye wyth you, as ye haue dealt wt the dead & with me. 9 And the Lord geue you, that you maye fynde reast ether of you in the house of her husband: & so she kyssed them. Then they cryed & wepte 10 & sayd vnto her: we wil go with the vnto thy folke. 11 But Noemi said, turne again my doughters: for what cause would you go with me? thinke you that there be any more children in my bowelles, to be youre husbandes? 12 Turne again my doughters & go: for I am to olde to haue an husband. Yf I sayde I haue hope, also yf I toke a man this night, ye and though I had alreadye borne sonnes? 13 would ye tary after them, tyl they were of age? or would ye for them so long refrayne from takynge of husbandes? Not so my doughters: for it greueth me much for youre sakes, that the hande of the Lord is gone out against me. 14 Therwyth they cryed and wepte agayne how be it Orphah kissed her mother in lawe but Ruth aboade still by her, 15 then she sayd: se, thy syster in lawe is gone backe againe vnto her people & vnto her God: returne thou after her. 16 But Ruth saide: entreate me not to leaue the, and to returne from after the, for whether thou goest, I will go, & where thou dwelleste, there I wil dwelle: thy people are my people, and thy God is my God. 17 Where thou dyest, I wil dye, and there wilbe buried. The Lorde do so and so to me, excepte that death onlye departe the and me a sondre. 18 When she saw that she woulde nedes go with her, she left speakinge vnto her. 19 And so they went both together vntyll they came to Bethlehem. And when they were come to Bethlehem, it was noysed thorow al the cyty and the wemen sayde: is not this Noemi? 20 But she said vnto them, calle me not Noemi: call me Mara, for the almightye hath made me very bitter. 21 I went oute full: but the Lorde hath brought me home emptye. Why should ye then calle me Noemi: seyng the Lord hath humbled me, & the almighty hath brought me vnto aduersite? 22 And the time when Noemi wyth Ruth the Moabitesse her doughter in lawe returned out of the countreye of Moab and came to Bethlehem, was in the begynning of barley harueste
Great(i) 1 It fortuned, that when the Iudges iudged, there fell a darth in the lande, and a certen man of Bethlehem Iuda went for to soiourne in the contreye of Moab: he and hys wyfe, and hys two sonnes. 2 The name of the man was Elimelec, and the name of hys wyfe, Naomi: and the names of hys two sonnes were, Mahlon and Chilion, and they were Ephraites, out of Bethlehem Iuda. And when they came into the land of Moab, they contynued there. 3 And Elimilec Naomies husband dyed, and she remayned with her two sonnes, 4 which toke them wyues of the nacions of the Moabites: the ones name was Orpha, and the others Ruth. And they dwelled there about a ten yere. 5 And Mahlon and Chilion dyed also euen both of them, and the woman was lefte desolate of her two sonnes and of her husbande. 6 Then stode she vp with her daughters in lawe, and returned from the countrey of Moab: for she had hearde saye in the countrey of Moab, how that the Lorde had vysyted hys people, and geuen them bred. 7 Wherfore she departed out of the place where she was, and her two daughters with her. And they went on theyr waye to returne vnto the lande of Iuda. 8 And Naomi sayde vnto her two daughters in lawe: go and returne eche of you vnto your mothers house: and the Lord deale as kyndlye with you, as ye haue dealt with the deed, and with me. 9 And the Lorde geue you, that you maye fynde rest, ether of you in the house of her husbande. And whan she kyssed them, they lyft vp theyr voyce, and wepte, 10 and sayde vnto her: we wyll go with the vnto thy folke. 11 And Naomi sayde: turne agayne my daughters: for what cause wyll you go with me? Are there any mo chyldren in my wombe, to be your husbandes? 12 Turne agayne my daughters, and go: for I am to olde to haue an husbande. And yf I sayde, I haue hope, yf I toke a man also this nyght: yee and though I had all readye borne sonnes, 13 wolde ye tarye after them, tyll they were of age? or wolde ye for them so long refrayne from takynge of husbandes? Not so my daughters: for it greueth me moch for youre sakes, that the hande of the Lorde is gone out agaynst me. 14 And they lyft vp their voyces, and wepte agayne, & Orpha kyssed her mother in lawe, but Ruth aboade styll by her. 15 And Naomi sayde: se, thy syster in lawe is gone backe agayne vnto her people and vnto her goddes: returne thou after her: 16 And Ruth answered: entreate me not to leaue the, and to returne from after the: for whether thou goest, I will go also, & where thou dwellest, there I wyll dwell: thy people shalbe my people, and thy God my God, 17 Where thou dyest, there wyll I dye, and there will I be buried. The Lord do so and so to me, yf ought but death onelye departe the and me asondre. 18 When she sawe that she was stedfastly mynded to go with her, she lefte speakynge vnto her. 19 And so they went both, vntyll they came to Bethlehem. And when they were come to Bethlehem, it was noysed of them thorow all the cytie, and the wemen sayd: is not this Naomi? 20 And she answered them: call me not Naomi but call me Mara, for the Allmyghtye hath made me verye bytter. 21 I went out full: and the Lorde hath brought me home agayne emptie. Why then call ye me Naomi: seynge the Lord hath humbled me, and the allmightie hath brought me vnto aduersyte? 22 And so Naomi with Ruth the Moabitesse her daughter in lawe returned out of the countreye of Moab, and came to Bethlehem, in the begynninge of barley harueste.
Geneva(i) 1 In the time that the Iudges ruled, there was a dearth in the lande, and a man of Beth-lehem Iudah went for to soiourne in the countrey of Moab, he, and his wife, and his two sonnes. 2 And the name of the man was Elimelech, and the name of his wife, Naomi: and the names of his two sonnes, Mahlon, and Chilion, Ephrathites of Beth-lehem Iudah: and when they came into the land of Moab, they continued there. 3 Then Elimelech the husband of Naomi died, and she remayned with her two sonnes, 4 Which tooke them wiues of the Moabites: the ones name was Orpah, and the name of ye other Ruth: and they dwelled there about ten yeeres. 5 And Mahlon and Chilion dyed also both twaine: so the woman was left destitute of her two sonnes, and of her husband. 6 Then she arose with her daughters in law, and returned from the countrey of Moab: for she had heard say in the countrey of Moab, that the Lord had visited his people, and giuen them bread. 7 Wherefore shee departed out of the place where she was, and her two daughters in law with her, and they went on their way to returne vnto the land of Iudah. 8 Then Naomi saide vnto her two daughters in lawe, Goe, returne eche of you vnto her owne mothers house: the Lord shew fauour vnto you, as ye haue done with the dead, and with me. 9 The Lord graunt you, that you may finde rest, either of you in the house of her husband. And when she kissed them, they lift vp their voice and wept. 10 And they saide vnto her, Surely we will returne with thee vnto thy people. 11 But Naomi saide, Turne againe, my daughters: for what cause will you go with me? are there any more sonnes in my wombe, that they may bee your husbands? 12 Turne againe, my daughters: go your way: for I am too olde to haue an husband. If I should say, I haue hope, and if I had an husband this night: yea, if I had borne sonnes, 13 Would yee tarie for them, till they were of age? would ye be deferred for them from taking of husbands? nay my daughters: for it grieueth me much for your sakes that the hand of the Lord is gone out against me. 14 Then they lift vp their voyce and wept againe, and Orpah kissed her mother in lawe, but Ruth abode still with her. 15 And Naomi said, Beholde, thy sister in law is gone backe vnto her people and vnto her gods: returne thou after thy sister in lawe. 16 And Ruth answered, Intreate mee not to leaue thee, nor to depart from thee: for whither thou goest, I will goe: and where thou dwellest, I will dwell: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God. 17 Where thou diest, will I die, and there will I be buried. the Lord do so to me and more also, if ought but death depart thee and me. 18 Whe she saw that she was stedfastly minded to go with her, she left speaking vnto her. 19 So they went both vntill they came to Beth-lehem: and when they were come to Beth-lehem, it was noysed of them through all the citie, and they said, Is not this Naomi? 20 And she answered them, Call me not Naomi, but call me Mara: for the Almightie hath giuen me much bitternes. 21 I went out full, and the Lord hath caused me to returne emptie: why call ye me Naomi, seeing the Lord hath humbled me, and the Almightie hath brought me vnto aduersitie? 22 So Naomi returned and Ruth the Moabitesse her daughter in law with her, when she came out of the countrey of Moab: and they came to Beth-lehem in the beginning of barly haruest.

DouayRheims(i) 1 In the days of the judges, when the judges ruled, there came a famine in the land. And a certain man of Bethlehem Juda, went to sojourn in the land of Moab with his wife and his two sons. 2 He was named Elimelech, and his wife Noemi: and his two sons, the one Mahalon, and the other Chelion, Ephrathites of Bethlehem Juda. And entering into the country of Moab, they abode there. 3 And Elimelech the husband of Noemi died: and she remained with her sons. 4 And they took wives of the women of Moab, of which one was called Orpha, and the other Ruth. And they dwelt their ten years, 5 And they both died, to wit, Mahalon and Chelion: and the woman was left alone, having lost both her sons and her husband. 6 And she arose to go from the land of Moab to her own country, with both her daughters in law: for she had heard that the Lord had looked upon his people, and had given them food. 7 Wherefore she went forth out of the place of her sojournment, with both her daughters in law: and being now in the way to return into the land of Juda, 8 She said to them: Go ye home to your mothers, the Lord deal mercifully with you, as you have dealt with the dead and with me. 9 May he grant you to find rest in the houses of the husbands whom you shall take. And she kissed them. And they lifted up their voice, and began to weep, 10 And to say: We will go on with thee to thy people. 11 But she answered them: Return, my daughters: why come ye with me? have I any more sons in my womb, that you may hope for husbands of me? 12 Return again, my daughters, and go your ways: for I am now spent with age, and not fit for wedlock. Although I might conceive this night, and bear children, 13 If you would wait till they were grown up, and come to man's estate, you would be old women before you marry. Do not so, my daughters, I beseech you: for I am grieved the more for your distress, and the hand of the Lord is gone out against me. 14 And they lifted up their voice, and began to weep again: Orpha kissed her mother in law, and returned: Ruth stuck close to her mother in law. 15 And Noemi said to her: Behold thy kinswoman is returned to her people, and to her gods, go thou with her. 16 She answered: Be not against me, to desire that I should leave thee and depart: for whithersoever thou shalt go, I will go: and where thou shalt dwell, I also will dwell. Thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God. 17 The land that shall receive thee dying, in the same will I die: and there will I be buried. The Lord do so and so to me, and add more also, if aught but death part me and thee. 18 Then Noemi seeing that Ruth was steadfastly determined to go with her, would not be against it, nor persuade her any more to return to her friends: 19 So they went together, and came to Bethlehem. And when they were come into the city, the report was quickly spread among all: and the women said: This is that Noemi. 20 But she said to them: Call me not Noemi (that is, beautiful,) but call me Mara (that is, bitter), for the Almighty hath quite filled me with bitterness. 21 I went out full and the Lord hath brought me back empty. Why then do you call me Noemi, whom the Lord hath humbled, and the Almighty hath afflicted? 22 So Noemi came with Ruth, the Moabitess, her daughter in law, from the land of her sojournment: and returned into Bethlehem, in the beginning of the barley harvest.
KJV(i) 1

Now it came to pass in the days when the judges ruled, that there was a famine in the land. And a certain man of Bethlehemjudah went to sojourn in the country of Moab, he, and his wife, and his two sons.

2

And the name of the man was Elimelech, and the name of his wife Naomi, and the name of his two sons Mahlon and Chilion, Ephrathites of Bethlehemjudah. And they came into the country of Moab, and continued there.

3

And Elimelech Naomi's husband died; and she was left, and her two sons.

4

And they took them wives of the women of Moab; the name of the one was Orpah, and the name of the other Ruth: and they dwelled there about ten years.

5

And Mahlon and Chilion died also both of them; and the woman was left of her two sons and her husband.

6

Then she arose with her daughters in law, that she might return from the country of Moab: for she had heard in the country of Moab how that the LORD had visited his people in giving them bread.

7

Wherefore she went forth out of the place where she was, and her two daughters in law with her; and they went on the way to return unto the land of Judah.

8

And Naomi said unto her two daughters in law, Go, return each to her mother's house: the LORD deal kindly with you, as ye have dealt with the dead, and with me.

9

The LORD grant you that ye may find rest, each of you in the house of her husband. Then she kissed them; and they lifted up their voice, and wept.

10

And they said unto her, Surely we will return with thee unto thy people.

11

And Naomi said, Turn again, my daughters: why will ye go with me? are there yet any more sons in my womb, that they may be your husbands?

12

Turn again, my daughters, go your way; for I am too old to have an husband. If I should say, I have hope, if I should have an husband also to night, and should also bear sons;

13

Would ye tarry for them till they were grown? would ye stay for them from having husbands? nay, my daughters; for it grieveth me much for your sakes that the hand of the LORD is gone out against me.

14

And they lifted up their voice, and wept again: and Orpah kissed her mother in law; but Ruth clave unto her.

15

And she said, Behold, thy sister in law is gone back unto her people, and unto her gods: return thou after thy sister in law.

16

And Ruth said, Entreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God:

17

Where thou diest, will I die, and there will I be buried: the LORD do so to me, and more also, if ought but death part thee and me.

18

When she saw that she was stedfastly minded to go with her, then she left speaking unto her.

19

So they two went until they came to Bethlehem. And it came to pass, when they were come to Bethlehem, that all the city was moved about them, and they said, Is this Naomi?

20

And she said unto them, Call me not Naomi, call me Mara: for the Almighty hath dealt very bitterly with me.

21

I went out full and the LORD hath brought me home again empty: why then call ye me Naomi, seeing the LORD hath testified against me, and the Almighty hath afflicted me?

22

So Naomi returned, and Ruth the Moabitess, her daughter in law, with her, which returned out of the country of Moab: and they came to Bethlehem in the beginning of barley harvest.

  6 H6965 Then she arose [H8799]   H3618 with her daughters in law H7725 , that she might return [H8799]   H7704 from the country H4124 of Moab H8085 : for she had heard [H8804]   H7704 in the country H4124 of Moab H3068 how that the LORD H6485 had visited [H8804]   H5971 his people H5414 in giving [H8800]   H3899 them bread.
  7 H3318 Wherefore she went forth [H8799]   H4725 out of the place H8147 where she was, and her two H3618 daughters in law H3212 with her; and they went [H8799]   H1870 on the way H7725 to return [H8800]   H776 unto the land H3063 of Judah.
  8 H5281 And Naomi H559 said [H8799]   H8147 unto her two H3618 daughters in law H3212 , Go [H8798]   H7725 , return [H8798]   H802 each H517 to her mother's H1004 house H3068 : the LORD H6213 deal [H8799]   H2617 kindly H6213 with you, as ye have dealt [H8804]   H4191 with the dead [H8801]  , and with me.
  9 H3068 The LORD H5414 grant [H8799]   H4672 you that ye may find [H8798]   H4496 rest H802 , each H1004 of you in the house H376 of her husband H5401 . Then she kissed [H8799]   H5375 them; and they lifted up [H8799]   H6963 their voice H1058 , and wept [H8799]  .
  10 H559 And they said [H8799]   H7725 unto her, Surely we will return [H8799]   H5971 with thee unto thy people.
  11 H5281 And Naomi H559 said [H8799]   H7725 , Turn again [H8798]   H1323 , my daughters H3212 : why will ye go [H8799]   H1121 with me? are there yet any more sons H4578 in my womb H582 , that they may be your husbands?
  12 H7725 Turn again [H8798]   H1323 , my daughters H3212 , go [H8798]   H2204 your way; for I am too old [H8804]   H376 to have an husband H559 . If I should say [H8804]   H3426 , I have H8615 hope H376 , if I should have an husband H3915 also to night H3205 , and should also bear [H8804]   H1121 sons;
  13 H7663 Would ye tarry [H8762]   H3860 for them H1431 till they were grown [H8799]   H5702 ? would ye stay [H8735]   H3860 for them H376 from having husbands H1323 ? nay, my daughters H4843 ; for it grieveth [H8804]   H3966 me much H3027 for your sakes that the hand H3068 of the LORD H3318 is gone out [H8804]   against me.
  14 H5375 And they lifted up [H8799]   H6963 their voice H1058 , and wept again [H8799]   H6204 : and Orpah H5401 kissed [H8799]   H2545 her mother in law H7327 ; but Ruth H1692 clave [H8804]   unto her.
  15 H559 And she said [H8799]   H2994 , Behold, thy sister in law H7725 is gone back [H8804]   H5971 unto her people H430 , and unto her gods H7725 : return [H8798]   H310 thou after H2994 thy sister in law.
  16 H7327 And Ruth H559 said [H8799]   H6293 , Intreat [H8799]   H5800 me not to leave [H8800]   H7725 thee, or to return [H8800]   H310 from following after H3212 thee: for whither thou goest [H8799]   H3212 , I will go [H8799]   H3885 ; and where thou lodgest [H8799]   H3885 , I will lodge [H8799]   H5971 : thy people H5971 shall be my people H430 , and thy God H430 my God:
  17 H4191 Where thou diest [H8799]   H4191 , will I die [H8799]   H6912 , and there will I be buried [H8735]   H3068 : the LORD H6213 do [H8799]   H3254 so to me, and more [H8686]   H4194 also, if ought but death H6504 part [H8686]   thee and me.
  18 H7200 When she saw [H8799]   H553 that she was stedfastly minded [H8693]   H3212 to go [H8800]   H2308 with her, then she left [H8799]   H1696 speaking [H8763]   unto her.
  19 H8147 So they two H3212 went [H8799]   H935 until they came [H8800]   H1035 to Bethlehem H935 . And it came to pass, when they were come [H8800]   H1035 to Bethlehem H5892 , that all the city H1949 was moved [H8735]   H559 about them, and they said [H8799]   H5281 , Is this Naomi?
  20 H559 And she said [H8799]   H7121 unto them, Call [H8799]   H5281 me not Naomi H7121 , call [H8798]   H4755 me Mara H7706 : for the Almighty H3966 hath dealt very H4843 bitterly [H8689]   with me.
  21 H1980 I went out [H8804]   H4392 full H3068 , and the LORD H7725 hath brought me home again [H8689]   H7387 empty H7121 : why then call [H8799]   H5281 ye me Naomi H3068 , seeing the LORD H6030 hath testified [H8804]   H7706 against me, and the Almighty H7489 hath afflicted [H8689]   me?
  22 H5281 So Naomi H7725 returned [H8799]   H7327 , and Ruth H4125 the Moabitess H3618 , her daughter in law H7725 , with her, which returned [H8804]   H7704 out of the country H4124 of Moab H935 : and they came [H8804]   H1035 to Bethlehem H8462 in the beginning H8184 of barley H7105 harvest.
Thomson(i) 1 Now when the Judges ruled, there was a famine in the land, and a man went from Bethlehem Juda to sojourn in the country of Moab, he and his wife and his two sons. 2 The man's name was Elimelech, and his wife's name was Noemin, and the names of his two sons, Maalon and Chelaion. They were Ephrathites of Bethlehem Juda. They went to the country of Moab, and while they were there, 3 Elimelech, the husband of Noemin, died, and she was left with her two sons. 4 And they took for themselves wives of the daughters of Moab, the name of the one was Orpha, and the name of the other Ruth. And when they had dwelt there about ten years, 5 both Maalon and Chelaion died, so that the woman was bereaved of her husband, and her two sons. 6 Whereupon she arose with her two daughters in law, and set out on her return from the country of Moab; for she had heard, in the country of Moab, that the Lord had visited his people in giving them bread. 7 So she set out from the place where she was with her two daughters in law. And when they had travelled some part of the way on their return to the land of Juda, 8 Noemin said to her two daughters in law, Go, I pray you, return each to her mother's house. May the Lord deal kindly with you, as you have done with the dead, and with me. 9 The Lord grant, that you may find rest, each in the house of her husband. So she kissed them, and they wept aloud, 10 and said to her, We will go back with thee to thy people. 11 But Noemin said, Return, I pray you, my daughters! for why should you go with me? Have I yet any more sons in my womb to be husbands for you? 12 Return, I pray you, my daughters! For I am too old to have a husband; for should I say, I am in condition to marry, and should I bear sons, 13 would you wait for them till they grow up; or should you be restrained by them from having husbands? No, my daughters. Indeed it grieveth me much for your sakes, that the hand of the Lord hath gone forth against me. 14 And when they had raised their voice, and wept again, Orpha kissed her mother in law, and returned to her people; but Ruth followed her. 15 Then Noemin said to Ruth; Behold thy sister in law is gone back to her people, and to her gods, return thou also, I pray thee, after thy sister in law. 16 Whereupon Ruth said, Force me not to leave thee, nor to return from following thee; for whither soever thou goest, I will go; and wherever thou lodgest, I will lodge. Thy people shall be my people; and thy God, my God; 17 and wherever thou diest, I will die, and there will I be buried. The Lord do so to me and more also, if any thing but death shall part me and thee. 18 And when Noemin saw that she was steadfastly determined to go with her, she refrained from speaking to her any more. 19 So they both proceeded on till they came to Bethlehem. And when they arrived at Bethlehem, all the city was moved about them, and they said, Is this Noemin? 20 But she said to them, Call me not, I pray you, Noemin. Call me, Bitter: for the Almighty hath dealt very bitterly with me. 21 I went out full; but the Lord hath brought me back empty. Why therefore do you call me Noemin, seeing the Lord hath brought me low, and the Almighty hath afflicted me? 22 Thus Noemin returned, with Ruth the Moabitess, her daughter in law; and having returned from the country of Moab, they came to Bethlehem, at the beginning of the barley harvest.
Webster(i) 1 Now it came to pass in the days when the judges ruled, that there was a famine in the land. And a certain man of Beth-lehem-judah went to dwell in the country of Moab, he, and his wife, and his two sons. 2 And the name of the man was Elimelech, and the name of his wife Naomi, and the name of his two sons Mahlon and Chilion, Ephrathites of Beth-lehem-judah. And they came into the country of Moab, and continued there. 3 And Elimelech Naomi's husband died; and she was left, and her two sons. 4 And they took to themselves wives of the women of Moab; the name of the one was Orpah, and the name of the other Ruth: and they dwelt there about ten years. 5 And Mahlon and Chilion died also both of them; and the woman was left by her two sons and her husband. 6 Then she arose with her daughters-in-law, that she might return from the country of Moab: for she had heard in the country of Moab how that the LORD had visited his people in giving them bread. 7 Wherefore she went forth from the place where she was, and her two daughters-in-law with her; and they went on the way to return to the land of Judah. 8 And Naomi said to her two daughters-in-law, Go, return each to her mother's house: the LORD deal kindly with you, as ye have dealt with the dead, and with me. 9 The LORD grant you that ye may find rest, each of you in the house of her husband. Then she kissed them; and they lifted up their voice, and wept. 10 And they said to her, surely we will return with thee to thy people. 11 And Naomi said, Turn again, my daughters: why will ye go with me? shall I bear more sons, that they may be your husbands? 12 Turn again, my daughters, go your way; for I am too old to have a husband. If I should say, I have hope, if I should have a husband also to-night, and should also bear sons; 13 Would ye wait for them till they should be grown? would ye stay for them from having husbands? nay, my daughters; for it grieveth me much for your sakes, that the hand of the LORD has gone out against me. 14 And they lifted up their voice, and wept again. And Orpah kissed her mother-in-law; but Ruth cleaved to her. 15 And she said, Behold, thy sister-in-law hath gone back to her people, and to her gods: return thou after thy sister-in-law. 16 And Ruth said, Entreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God: 17 Where thou diest, will I die, and there will I be buried: the LORD do so to me, and more also, if aught but death shall part thee and me. 18 When she saw that she was steadfastly resolved to go with her, then she left speaking to her. 19 So they two went until they came to Beth-lehem. And it came to pass, when they had come to Beth-lehem, that all the city was moved about them, and they said, Is this Naomi? 20 And she said to them, Call me not Naomi, call me Mara: for the Almighty hath dealt very bitterly with me. 21 I went out full, and the LORD hath brought me home again empty: why then call ye me Naomi, seeing the LORD hath testified against me, and the Almighty hath afflicted me? 22 So Naomi returned, and Ruth the Moabitess her daughter-in-law with her, who returned from the country of Moab: and they came to Beth-lehem in the beginning of barley-harvest.

  1 H3117 Now it came to pass in the days H8199 [H8802] when the judges H8199 [H8800] ruled H7458 , that there was a famine H776 in the land H376 . And a certain man H1035 H3063 of Bethlehemjudah H3212 [H8799] went H1481 [H8800] to dwell H7704 in the country H4124 of Moab H802 , he, and his wife H8147 , and his two H1121 sons.
  2 H8034 And the name H376 of the man H458 was Elimelech H8034 , and the name H802 of his wife H5281 Naomi H8034 , and the name H8147 of his two H1121 sons H4248 Mahlon H3630 and Chilion H673 , Ephrathites H1035 H3063 of Bethlehemjudah H935 [H8799] . And they came H7704 into the country H4124 of Moab, and continued there.
  3 H458 And Elimelech H5281 Naomi's H376 husband H4191 [H8799] died H7604 [H8735] ; and she was left H8147 , and her two H1121 sons.
  4 H5375 [H8799] And they took H802 for themselves wives H802 of the women H4125 of Moab H8034 ; the name H259 of the one H6204 was Orpah H8034 , and the name H8145 of the other H7327 Ruth H3427 [H8799] : and they dwelt H6235 there about ten H8141 years.
  5 H4248 And Mahlon H3630 and Chilion H4191 [H8799] died H8147 also both H802 of them; and the woman H7604 [H8735] was left H8147 without her two H3206 sons H376 and her husband.
  6 H6965 [H8799] Then she arose H3618 with her daughters in law H7725 [H8799] , that she might return H7704 from the country H4124 of Moab H8085 [H8804] : for she had heard H7704 in the country H4124 of Moab H3068 how that the LORD H6485 [H8804] had visited H5971 his people H5414 [H8800] in giving H3899 them food.
  7 H3318 [H8799] Therefore she went forth H4725 from the place H8147 where she was, and her two H3618 daughters in law H3212 [H8799] with her; and they went H1870 on the way H7725 [H8800] to return H776 to the land H3063 of Judah.
  8 H5281 And Naomi H559 [H8799] said H8147 to her two H3618 daughters in law H3212 [H8798] , Go H7725 [H8798] , return H802 each H517 to her mother's H1004 house H3068 : the LORD H6213 [H8799] deal H2617 kindly H6213 [H8804] with you, as ye have dealt H4191 [H8801] with the dead, and with me.
  9 H3068 The LORD H5414 [H8799] grant H4672 [H8798] you that ye may find H4496 rest H802 , each H1004 of you in the house H376 of her husband H5401 [H8799] . Then she kissed H5375 [H8799] them; and they lifted up H6963 their voice H1058 [H8799] , and wept.
  10 H559 [H8799] And they said H7725 [H8799] to her, Surely we will return H5971 with thee to thy people.
  11 H5281 And Naomi H559 [H8799] said H7725 [H8798] , Turn again H1323 , my daughters H3212 [H8799] : why will ye go H1121 with me? are there yet any more sons H4578 in my womb H582 , that they may be your husbands?
  12 H7725 [H8798] Turn again H1323 , my daughters H3212 [H8798] , go H2204 [H8804] your way; for I am too old H376 to have an husband H559 [H8804] . If I should say H3426 , I have H8615 hope H376 , if I should have an husband H3915 also to night H3205 [H8804] , and should also bear H1121 sons;
  13 H7663 [H8762] Would ye wait H3860 for them H1431 [H8799] till they should be grown H5702 [H8735] ? would ye restrain H3860 yourselves H376 from having husbands H1323 ? nay, my daughters H4843 [H8804] ; for it grieveth H3966 me much H3027 for your sakes that the hand H3068 of the LORD H3318 [H8804] hast gone out against me.
  14 H5375 [H8799] And they lifted up H6963 their voice H1058 [H8799] , and wept again H6204 : and Orpah H5401 [H8799] kissed H2545 her mother in law H7327 ; but Ruth H1692 [H8804] clung to her.
  15 H559 [H8799] And she said H2994 , Behold, thy sister in law H7725 [H8804] hath gone back H5971 to her people H430 , and to her gods H7725 [H8798] : return H310 thou after H2994 thy sister in law.
  16 H7327 And Ruth H559 [H8799] said H6293 [H8799] , Entreat H5800 [H8800] me not to leave H7725 [H8800] thee, or to turn away H310 from following H3212 [H8799] thee: for where thou goest H3212 [H8799] , I will go H3885 [H8799] ; and where thou lodgest H3885 [H8799] , I will lodge H5971 : thy people H5971 shall be my people H430 , and thy God H430 my God:
  17 H4191 [H8799] Where thou diest H4191 [H8799] , will I die H6912 [H8735] , and there will I be buried H3068 : the LORD H6213 [H8799] do H3254 [H8686] so to me, and more H4194 also, if any thing but death H6504 [H8686] shall part thee and me.
  18 H7200 [H8799] When she saw H553 [H8693] that she was steadfastly resolved H3212 [H8800] to go H2308 [H8799] with her, then she finished H1696 [H8763] speaking to her.
  19 H8147 So they two H3212 [H8799] went H935 [H8800] until they came H1035 to Bethlehem H935 [H8800] . And it came to pass, when they had come H1035 to Bethlehem H5892 , that all the city H1949 [H8735] was moved H559 [H8799] about them, and they said H5281 , Is this Naomi?
  20 H559 [H8799] And she said H7121 [H8799] to them, Call H5281 me not Naomi H7121 [H8798] , call H4755 me Mara H7706 : for the Almighty H3966 hath dealt very H4843 [H8689] bitterly with me.
  21 H1980 [H8804] I went out H4392 full H3068 , and the LORD H7725 [H8689] hath brought me home again H7387 empty H7121 [H8799] : why then call H5281 ye me Naomi H3068 , seeing the LORD H6030 [H8804] hath testified H7706 against me, and the Almighty H7489 [H8689] hath afflicted me?
  22 H5281 So Naomi H7725 [H8799] returned H7327 , and Ruth H4125 the Moabitess H3618 , her daughter in law H7725 [H8804] , with her, who returned H7704 from the country H4124 of Moab H935 [H8804] : and they came H1035 to Bethlehem H8462 in the beginning H8184 of barley H7105 harvest.
Brenton(i) 1 And it came to pass when the judges ruled, that there was a famine in the land: and a man went from Bethleem Juda to sojourn in the land of Moab, he, and his wife, and his two sons. 2 And the man's name was Elimelech, and his wife's name Noemin, and the names of his two sons Maalon and Chelaion, Ephrathites of Bethleem of Juda: and they came to the land of Moab, and remained there. 3 And Elimelech the husband of Noemin died; and she was left, and her two sons. 4 And they took to themselves wives, women of Moab; the name of the one was Orpha, and the name of the second Ruth; and they dwelt there about ten years. 5 And both Maalon and Chelaion died also; and the woman was left of her husband and her two sons. 6 And she rose up and her two daughters-in-law, and they returned out of the country of Moab, for she heard in the country of Moab that the Lord had visited his people to give them bread. 7 And she went forth out of the place where she was, and her two daughters-in-law with her: and they went by the way to return to the land of Juda. 8 And Noemin said to her daughter-in-law, Go now, return each to the house of her mother: the Lord deal mercifully with you, as ye have dealt with the dead, and with me. 9 The Lord grant you that ye may find rest each of you in the house of her husband: and she kissed them; and they lifted up their voice, and wept. 10 And they said to her, We will return with thee to thy people. 11 And Noemin said, Return now, my daughters; and why do ye go with me? have I yet sons in my womb to be your husbands? 12 Turn now, my daughters, for I am too old to be married: for I said, Suppose I were married, and should bear sons; 13 would ye wait for them till they should be grown? or would ye refrain from being married for their sakes? Not so, my daughters; for I am grieved for you, that the hand of the Lord has gone forth against me. 14 And they lifted up their voice, and wept again; and Orpha kissed her mother-in-law and returned to her people; but Ruth followed her. 15 And Noemin said to Ruth, Behold, thy sister-in-law has returned to her people and to her gods; turn now thou also after thy sister-in-law. 16 And Ruth said, Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following thee; for whithersoever thou goest, I will go, and wheresoever thou lodgest, I will lodge; thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God. 17 And wherever thou diest, I will die, and there will I be buried: the Lord do so to me, and more also, if I leave thee, for death only shall divide between me and thee. 18 And Noemin seeing that she was determined to go with her, ceased to speak to her any more. 19 And they went both of them until they came to Bethleem: and it came to pass, when they arrived at Bethleem, that all the city rang with them, and they said, Is this Noemin? 20 And she said to them, Nay, do not call me Noemin; call me æBitter,' for the Mighty One has dealt very bitterly with me. 21 I went out full, and the Lord has brought me back empty: and why call ye me Noemin, whereas the Lord has humbled me and the Mighty One has afflicted me? 22 So Noemin and Ruth the Moabitess, her daughter-in-law, returned from the country of Moab; and they came to Bethleem in the beginning of barley harvest.

15 Καὶ εἶπε Νωεμĩν πρὸς Ῥοὺθ, ἰδοὺ ἀνέστρεψε σύννυμφός σου πρὸς λαὸν αὐτῆς καὶ πρὸς τοὺς θεοὺς αὐτῆς· ἐπιστράφηθι δὴ καὶ σὺ ὀπίσω τῆς συννύμφου σου. 16 Εἶπε δὲ Ῥοῦθ, μὴ ἀπάντησαί μοι τοῦ καταλιπεῖν σε, ἢ ἀποστρέψαι ὄπισθέν σου, ὅτι σὺ ὅπου ἐὰν πορευθῇς, πορεύσομαι, καὶ οὗ ἐὰν αὐλισθῇς, αὐλισθήσομαι· ὁ λαός σου, λαός μου, καὶ ὁ Θεός σου, Θεός μου· 17 Καὶ οὗ ἐὰν ἀποθάνῃς, ἀποθανοῦμαι, κἀκεῖ ταφήσομαι· τάδε ποιήσαι μοι Κύριος, καὶ τάδε προσθείῃ, ὅτι θάνατος διαστελεῖ ἀναμέσον ἐμοῦ καὶ σοῦ. 18 Ἰδοῦσα δὲ Νωεμὶν ὅτι κραταιοῦται αὐτὴ τοῦ πορεύεσθαι μετʼ αὐτῆς, ἐκόπασε τοῦ λαλῆσαι πρὸς αὐτὴν ἔτι.
19 Ἐπορεύθησαν δὲ ἀμφότεραι, ἕως τοῦ παραγενέσθαι αὐτὰς εἰς Βηθλεέμ· καὶ ἐγένετο ἐν τῷ ἐλθεῖν αὐτὰς εἰς Βηθλεὲμ, καὶ ἤχησε πᾶσα ἡ πόλις ἐπʼ αὐταῖς, καὶ εἶπον, εἰ αὕτη ἐστὶ Νωεμίν; 20 Καὶ εἶπε πρὸς αὐτὰς, μὴ δὴ καλεῖτέ με Νωεμίν, καλέσατέ με πικρὰν, ὅτι ἐπικράνθη ἐν ἐμοὶ ὁ ἱκανὸς σφόδρα. 21 Ἐγὼ πλήρης ἐπορεύθην, καὶ κενὴν ἀπέστρεψέ με ὁ Κύριος· καὶ ἱνατί καλεῖτέ με Νωεμὶν, καὶ Κύριος ἐταπείνωσέ με, καὶ ὁ ἱκανὸς ἐκάκωσέ με;

Leeser(i) 1 And it came to pass in the days when the judges judged, that there was a famine in the land: and there went a certain man of Beth-lechem-judah to sojourn in the fields of Moab, he, and his wife, and his two sons. 2 And the name of the man was Elimelech, and the name of his wife Na’omi, and the name of his two sons Machlon and Kilyon, Ephrathites of Beth-lechem-judah. And they came into the fields of Moab, and remained there. 3 Thereupon died Elimelech Na’omi’s husband; and she was left, with her two sons. 4 And they took themselves wives of the women of Moab; the name of one was ‘Orpah, and the name of the other Ruth: and they dwelt there about ten years. 5 And then died also both of these, Machlon and Kilyon, and the woman was left deprived of her two children and her husband. 6 Then did she arise with her daughters-in-law, and returned homeward from the fields of Moab; for she had heard in the fields of Moab that the Lord had thought of his people in giving them bread. 7 Therefore she went forth out of the place where she had been, and her two daughters-in-law were with her; and they went on their way to return unto the land of Judah. 8 Then said Na’omi unto her two daughters-in-law, Go, return each one to her mother’s house: may the Lord deal kindly with you, as ye have dealt with the dead, and with me. 9 May the Lord grant unto you that ye may find rest, each one in the house of her husband. Then she kissed them, and they lifted up their voice, and wept. 10 And they said unto her, No, for truly we will return with thee unto thy people. 11 Then said Na’omi, Return back, my daughters; why will ye go with me? are there yet any more sons in my womb, that they may become your husbands? 12 Return back, my daughters, go; for I am too old to become the wife of any man; yea, if I were even to think, I have hope; should I even obtain this night a husband, and should also bear sons: 13 Would ye wait in hopes for them till they were grown? would ye debar yourselves for them so as not to become the wives of any man? not so, my daughters; for I feel much more bitter pain than you; because the hand of the Lord is gone out against me. 14 And they lifted up their voice and wept a long time; and Orpah kissed her mother-in-law; but Ruth cleaved unto her. 15 And she said, Behold, thy sister-in-law is returned back unto her people, and unto her gods; return thou after thy sister-in-law. 16 But Ruth said, Urge me not to leave thee, to return from following thee; for whither thou goest, will I go; and where thou lodgest, will I lodge; thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God. 17 Where thou diest, will I die, and there will I be buried; may the Lord do so to me, and may he so continue, if aught but death shall part me from thee. 18 When she thus saw that she was persisting to go with her, she left off speaking unto her. 19 So these two went until they came to Beth-lechem. And it came to pass, when they entered Beth-lechem, that all the city was in commotion about them, and people said, Is this Na’omi? 20 And she said unto them, Call me not Na’omi, call me Mara; for the Almighty hath dealt very bitterly with me. 21 I went out full, but empty hath the Lord brought me home again; why then will ye call me Na’omi, seeing the Lord hath testified against me, and the Almighty hath sent me affliction? 22 So did Na’omi return, and Ruth the Moabitess, her daughter-in-law, with her, who had returned out of the fields of Moab; and they came to Beth-lechem at the beginning of the barley-harvest.
YLT(i) 1 And it cometh to pass, in the days of the judging of the judges, that there is a famine in the land, and there goeth a man from Beth-Lehem-Judah to sojourn in the fields of Moab, he, and his wife, and his two sons. 2 And the name of the man is Elimelech, and the name of his wife Naomi, and the name of his two sons Mahlon and Chilion, Ephrathites from Beth-Lehem-Judah; and they come into the fields of Moab, and are there. 3 And Elimelech husband of Naomi dieth, and she is left, she and her two sons; 4 and they take to them wives, Moabitesses: the name of the one is Orpah, and the name of the second Ruth; and they dwell there about ten years. 5 And they die also, both of them—Mahlon and Chilion—and the woman is left of her two children and of her husband.
6 And she riseth, she and her daughters-in-law, and turneth back from the fields of Moab, for she hath heard in the fields of Moab that God hath looked after His people, —to give to them bread. 7 And she goeth out from the place where she hath been, and her two daughters-in-law with her, and they go in the way to turn back unto the land of Judah. 8 And Naomi saith to her two daughters-in-law, `Go, turn back, each to the house of her mother; Jehovah doth with you kindness as ye have done with the dead, and with me; 9 Jehovah doth grant to you, and find ye rest each in the house of her husband;' and she kisseth them, and they lift up their voice and weep. 10 And they say to her, `Surely with thee we go back to thy people.' 11 And Naomi saith, `Turn back, my daughters; why do ye go with me? are there yet to me sons in my bowels that they have been to you for husbands? 12 Turn back, my daughters, go, for I am too aged to be to a husband; though I had said, There is for me hope, also, I have been to-night to a husband, and also I have borne sons: 13 for them do ye wait till that they grow up? for them do ye shut yourselves up, not to be to a husband? nay, my daughters, for more bitter to me than to you, for the hand of Jehovah hath gone out against me.' 14 And they lift up their voice, and weep again, and Orpah kisseth her mother-in-law, and Ruth hath cleaved to her. 15 And she saith, `Lo, thy sister-in-law hath turned back unto her people, and unto her god, turn thou back after thy sister-in-law.' 16 And Ruth saith, `Urge me not to leave thee—to turn back from after thee; for whither thou goest I go, and where thou lodgest I lodge; thy people is my people, and thy God my God. 17 Where thou diest I die, and there I am buried; thus doth Jehovah to me, and thus doth He add—for death itself doth part between me and thee.' 18 And she seeth that she is strengthening herself to go with her, and she ceaseth to speak unto her;
19 and they go both of them till their coming in to Beth-Lehem; and it cometh to pass at their coming in to Beth-Lehem, that all the city is moved at them, and they say, `Is this Naomi?' 20 And she saith unto them, `Call me not Naomi; call me Mara, for the Almighty hath dealt very bitterly to me, 21 I went out full, and empty hath Jehovah brought me back, why do ye call me Naomi, and Jehovah hath testified against me, and the Almighty hath done evil to me?' 22 And Naomi turneth back, and Ruth the Moabitess her daughter-in-law with her, who hath turned back from the fields of Moab, and they have come in to Beth-Lehem at the commencement of barley-harvest.
JuliaSmith(i) 1 And it will be in the days of the judging of the judges, and there will be a famine in the land. And a man from the house of bread of Judah will go to sojourn in the field of Moab, he and his wife and his two sons. 2 And the name of the man Elimelech, and the name of his wife, Naomi, and the name of his two sons, Mahlon and Chilion, Ephrathites from the house of bread of Judah. And they will come to the field of Moab and be there. 3 And Elimelech will die, the husband of Naomi; and she will be left, and her two sons. 4 And they will take to them wives from the Moabitesses; the name of the one, Orpah, and the name of the second, Ruth: and they will dwell there about ten years. 5 And Mahlon and Chilioh, also they two, will die; and the woman will be left of her two children and of her husband. 6 And she will arise and her daughters-in-law, and she will turn back from the field of Moab: for she heard in the field of Moab that Jehovah reviewed his people to give bread to them. 7 And she will go forth from the place where she was there, and her two daughters-in-law with her; and they will go in the way to turn back to the land of Judah. 8 And Naomi will say to her two daughters-in-law, Go, turn back each to the house of her mother: Jehovah will do mercy with you according as ye did with the dead, and with me. 9 Jehovah will give to you, and find ye rest, each in the house of her husband And she will kiss to them, and they will lift up their voice and weep. 10 And they will say to her, But with thee we will turn back to thy people. 11 And Naomi will say, Turn back, my daughters: wherefore will ye go with me? are yet to me sons in my bowels, and they were to you for husbands? 12 Turn back, my daughters, therefore; for I grew old from being for a husband. If I said, There is hope to me, also I was this night to a husband, and also I bare sons; 13 Will ye wait for them till they shall grow? Will remain shut up for them not to be for a husband? Nay, my daughters, for it is bitter to me greatly for you, that the hand of Jehovah will go forth against me. 14 And they will lift up their voice and weep yet. And Orpah will kiss to her mother-in law; and Ruth adhered to her. 15 And she will say, Behold, thy sister-in-law turned back to her people, and to her gods: turn thou back after thy sister-in-law. 16 And Ruth will say, Thou shalt not urge upon me to forsake thee, to turn back from after thee: for where thou shalt go, I will go; and where thou shalt lodge, I will lodge: thy people my people, and thy God my God: 17 Where thou shalt die, I will die, and there will I be buried: thus will Jehovah do to me, and thus will he add, for death shall separate between me and between thee. 18 And she will see that she strengthening herself to go with her, and she will cease to speak to her. 19 And they two will go till they came to the house of bread. And it will be as they came to the house of bread, and all the city will be moved at them, and they will say, Is this Naomi? 20 And she will say to them, Ye shall not call to me Naomi; call to me, Mara: for the Almighty made bitter to me greatly. 21 I went away full, and Jehovah turned me back empty; wherefore will ye call to me Naomi, and Jehovah humbled me, and the Almighty did evil to me? 22 And Naomi will turn back, and Ruth the Moabitess her daughter-in-law, with her, turned back from the field of Moab: and they came to the house of bread in the beginning of the harvest of barley.
Darby(i) 1 And it came to pass in the days when the judges ruled, that there was a famine in the land. And a certain man went from Bethlehem-Judah, to sojourn in the country of Moab, he, and his wife, and his two sons. 2 And the name of the man was Elimelech, and the name of his wife Naomi, and the name of his two sons Mahlon and Chilion, Ephrathites of Bethlehem-Judah. And they came into the country of Moab, and continued there. 3 And Elimelech Naomi`s husband died; and she was left, and her two sons. 4 And they took them Moabitish wives; the name of the one was Orpah, and the name of the second Ruth: and they abode there about ten years. 5 And Mahlon and Chilion died also, both of them; and the woman was left of her two children and of her husband. 6 And she arose, she and her daughters-in-law, and returned from the fields of Moab; for she had heard in the fields of Moab how that Jehovah had visited his people to give them bread. 7 Wherefore she went forth out of the place where she had been, and her two daughters-in-law with her; and they went on the way to return to the land of Judah. 8 And Naomi said to her two daughters-in-law, Go, return each to her mother`s house. Jehovah deal kindly with you, as ye have dealt with the dead and with me. 9 Jehovah grant you that ye may find rest, each in the house of her husband. And she kissed them; and they lifted up their voice and wept. 10 And they said to her, We will certainly return with thee to thy people. 11 And Naomi said, Return, my daughters: why will ye go with me? Are there yet sons in my womb, that they could be your husbands? 12 Return, my daughters, go; for I am too old to have a husband. If I should say, I have hope, should I even have a husband to-night, and should I also bear sons, 13 would ye wait on that account till they were grown? Would ye stay on that account from having husbands? No, my daughters, for I am in much more bitterness than you; for the hand of Jehovah is gone out against me. 14 And they lifted up their voice and wept again. And Orpah kissed her mother-in-law, but Ruth clave to her. 15 And she said, Behold, thy sister-in-law is gone back to her people and to her gods: return after thy sister-in-law. 16 And Ruth said, Do not intreat me to leave thee, to return from [following] after thee; for whither thou goest I will go, and where thou lodgest I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God; 17 where thou diest will I die, and there will I be buried. Jehovah do so to me, and more also, if aught but death part me and thee! 18 And when she saw that she was stedfastly minded to go with her, she left off speaking to her. 19 And they two went until they came to Bethlehem. And it came to pass, when they came to Bethlehem, that all the city was moved about them, and the [women] said, Is this Naomi? 20 And she said to them, Call me not Naomi -- call me Mara; for the Almighty has dealt very bitterly with me. 21 I went out full, and Jehovah has brought me home again empty. Why do ye call me Naomi, seeing Jehovah has brought me low, and the Almighty has afflicted me? 22 So Naomi returned, and Ruth the Moabitess, her daughter-in-law, with her, who returned out of the fields of Moab; and they came to Bethlehem in the beginning of the barley-harvest.

H935 And they came H7704 into the country H4124 of Moab, and continued there.
  3 H458 And Elimelech, H5281 Naomi's H376 husband, H4191 died; H7604 and she was left, H8147 and her two H1121 sons.
  4 H5375 And they took H802 them wives H802 of the women H4125 of Moab; H8034 the name H259 of the one H6204 was Orpah, H8034 and the name H8145 of the other H7327 Ruth: H3427 and they dwelt H6235 there about ten H8141 years.
  5 H4248 And Mahlon H3630 and Chilion H4191 died H8147 both H802 of them; and the woman H7604 was left H8147 of her two H3206 children H376 and of her husband.
  6 H6965 Then she arose H3618 with her daughters-in-law, H7725 that she might return H7704 from the country H4124 of Moab: H8085 for she had heard H7704 in the country H4124 of Moab H3068 how that Jehovah H6485 had visited H5971 his people H5414 in giving H3899 them bread.

  14 H5375 And they lifted up H6963 their voice, H1058 and wept again: H6204 and Orpah H5401 kissed H2545 her mother-in-law, H7327 but Ruth H1692 clave unto her.
  15 H559 And she said, H2994 Behold, thy sister-in-law H7725 is gone back H5971 unto her people, H430 and unto her god: H7725 return H310 thou after H2994 thy sister-in-law.
  16 H7327 And Ruth H559 said, H6293 Entreat H5800 me not to leave H7725 thee, and to return H310 from following after H3212 thee, for whither thou goest, H3212 I will go; H3885 and where thou lodgest, H3885 I will lodge; H5971 thy people H5971 shall be my people, H430 and thy God H430 my God;
  17 H4191 where thou diest, H4191 will I die, H6912 and there will I be buried: H3068 Jehovah H6213 do H3254 so to me, and more H4194 also, if aught but death H6504 part thee and me.
  18 H7200 And when she saw H553 that she was stedfastly minded H3212 to go H2308 with her, she left H1696 off speaking unto her.
  19 H8147 So they two H3212 went H935 until they came H1035 to Beth-lehem. H935 And it came to pass, when they were come H1035 to Beth-lehem, H5892 that all the city H1949 was moved H559 about them, and the women said, H5281 Is this Naomi?
  20 H559 And she said H7121 unto them, Call H5281 me not Naomi, H7121 call H4755 me Mara; H7706 for the Almighty H3966 hath dealt very H4843 bitterly with me.
  21 H1980 I went out H4392 full, H3068 and Jehovah H7725 hath brought me home again H7387 empty; H7121 why call H5281 ye me Naomi, H3068 seeing Jehovah H6030 hath testified H7706 against me, and the Almighty H7489 hath afflicted me?
  22 H5281 So Naomi H7725 returned, H7327 and Ruth H4125 the Moabitess, H3618 her daughter-in-law, H7725 with her, who returned H7704 out of the country H4124 of Moab: H935 and they came H1035 to Beth-lehem H8462 in the beginning H8184 of barley H7105 harvest.
JPS_ASV_Byz(i) 1 And it came to pass in the days when the judges judged, that there was a famine in the land. And a certain man of Beth- lehem in Judah went to sojourn in the field of Moab, he, and his wife, and his two sons. 2 And the name of the man was Elimelech, and the name of his wife Naomi, and the name of his two sons Mahlon and Chilion, Ephrathites of Beth-lehem in Judah. And they came into the field of Moab, and continued there. 3 And Elimelech Naomi's husband died; and she was left, and her two sons. 4 And they took them wives of the women of Moab: the name of the one was Orpah, and the name of the other Ruth; and they dwelt there about ten years. 5 And Mahlon and Chilion died both of them; and the woman was left of her two children and of her husband. 6 Then she arose with her daughters-in-law, that she might return from the field of Moab; for she had heard in the field of Moab how that the LORD had remembered His people in giving them bread. 7 And she went forth out of the place where she was, and her two daughters-in-law with her; and they went on the way to return unto the land of Judah. 8 And Naomi said unto her two daughters-in-law: 'Go, return each of you to her mother's house; the LORD deal kindly with you, as ye have dealt with the dead, and with me. 9 The LORD grant you that ye may find rest, each of you in the house of her husband.' Then she kissed them; and they lifted up their voice, and wept. 10 And they said unto her: 'Nay, but we will return with thee unto thy people.' 11 And Naomi said: 'Turn back, my daughters; why will ye go with me? have I yet sons in my womb, that they may be your husbands? 12 Turn back, my daughters, go your way; for I am too old to have a husband. If I should say: I have hope, should I even have an husband to-night, and also bear sons; 13 would ye tarry for them till they were grown? would ye shut yourselves off for them and have no husbands? nay, my daughters; for it grieveth me much for your sakes, for the hand of the LORD is gone forth against me.' 14 And they lifted up their voice, and wept again; and Orpah kissed her mother-in-law; but Ruth cleaved unto her. 15 And she said: 'Behold, thy sister-in-law is gone back unto her people, and unto her god; return thou after thy sister-in- law.' 16 And Ruth said: 'Entreat me not to leave thee, and to return from following after thee; for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge; thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God; 17 where thou diest, will I die, and there will I be buried; the LORD do so to me, and more also, if aught but death part thee and me.' 18 And when she saw that she was stedfastly minded to go with her, she left off speaking unto her. 19 So they two went until they came to Beth-lehem. And it came to pass, when they were come to Beth-lehem, that all the city was astir concerning them, and the women said: 'Is this Naomi?' 20 And she said unto them: 'Call me not Naomi, call me Marah; for the Almighty hath dealt very bitterly with me. 21 I went out full, and the LORD hath brought me back home empty; why call ye me Naomi, seeing the LORD hath testified against me, and the Almighty hath afflicted me?' 22 So Naomi returned, and Ruth the Moabitess, her daughter-in-law, with her, who returned out of the field of Moab - and they came to Beth-lehem in the beginning of barley harvest.
Rotherham(i) 1 And it came to pass, in the days when the Judges administered justice, that there was a famine in the land,—and so a certain man went his way, out of Bethlehem-judah to sojourn in the country of Moab, he, and his wife, and his two sons. 2 And, the name of the man, was Elimelech, and, the name of his wife, Naomi, and, the name of his two sons, Mahlon and Chilion—Ephrathites out of Bethlehem-judah,—so they came into the country of Moab, and remained there. 3 And Elimelech, husband of Naomi, died,—and she was left, she and her two sons. 4 And they took them wives, of the women of Moab, the name of the one, was Orpah, and, the name of the other, Ruth,—and they dwelt there, about ten years. 5 And, they also, both, died, Mahlon and Chilion,—so the woman was bereft of her two sons, and of her husband. 6 Then she arose, she and her daughters-in-law, and returned out of the country of Moab,—for she had heard, in the country of Moab, how that Yahweh had visited his people, in giving unto them, bread. 7 So she went forth out of the dwelling-place where she had remained, and her two daughters-in-law with her,—and they went on the way, to return unto the land of Judah. 8 Then said Naomi to her two daughters-in- law: Go return, each one to the house of her mother,—Yahweh deal with you in lovingkindness, as ye have dealt with the dead, and with me. 9 Yahweh grant you, that ye may find a place of rest, each one in the house of her husband,—And she kissed them, and they lifted up their voice, and wept. 10 And they said to her,—With thee, will we return, unto thy people. 11 Then said Naomi—Go back, my daughters! wherefore should ye journey with me? Have I, yet, sons in my womb, that they should become your, husbands? 12 Go back, my daughters, go your way, for I am too old to have a husband,—If I should say, I have, hope, if I should, even to-night have a husband, and should, even bear sons, 13 would ye, therefore, tarry until they were grown? would ye, therefore, shut yourselves up from having husbands? Nay! my daughters, for it is far more bitter for me than for you, that forth hath gone against me, the hand of Yahweh. 14 And they lifted up their voice and wept, yet more. Then Orpah kissed her mother-in- law, but, Ruth, clave unto her. 15 And she said—Lo! thy sister-in-law hath gone back, unto her people, and unto her gods,—go thou back, after thy sister-in-law. 16 And Ruth said—Do not urge me to leave thee, to go back from following thee,—for, whither thou goest, I will go, and, where thou lodgest, I will lodge, thy people, shall be my people, and, thy God, my God; 17 where thou diest, I will die, and, there, will I be buried: So, let Yahweh do to me, and, so, let him add, if, death itself, part me and thee. 18 And, when she saw that, bravely determined, was she to go with her, she ceased entreating her. 19 So, they two, went their way, until they entered Bethlehem. And it came to pass, when they entered Bethlehem, that all the city was moved concerning them, and the women said—Is this Naomi? 20 And she said unto them, Do not call me Naomi [="Sweet"],—call me Mara [="Bitter"], for the Almighty hath dealt very bitterly with me: 21 I was full when I departed, but, empty, am I brought back of Yahweh,—wherefore should ye call me Naomi, when, Yahweh, hath given answer against me, and, the Almighty, hath crushed me? 22 So Naomi returned, and Ruth the Moabitess, her daughter-in-law, with her, who returned out of the country of Moab,—and, they, entered Bethlehem in the beginning of barley harvest.
CLV(i) 1 It was in the days when the judges judged, that a famine came over the land, and a man from Bethlehem in Judah went to sojourn in the fields of Moab, he and his wife and his two sons. 2 The name of the man was Elimelech, the name of his wife was Naomi, and the names of his two sons were Mahlon and Chilion. They were Ephrathites from Bethlehem in Judah. They came to the fields of Moab and stayed there. 3 When Elimelech, Naomi's husband, died, she remained, she and her two sons. 4 They took up Moabite wives for themselves; the name of the one was Orpah, and the name of the second was Ruth. And they dwelt there about ten years. 5 Then Mahlon and Chilion, both of them, also died. Thus the woman remained without her two boys and without her husband. 6 She got up with her daughters-in-law to return from the fields of Moab, for she had heard in the field of Moab that Yahweh had visited His people and given them bread. 7 So she went forth from the place where she had been; and her two daughters-in-law were with her when they went on the road to return to the area of Judah. 8 Yet Naomi said to her two daughters-in-law, Go, turn back, each of you to her mother's house. May Yahweh deal kindly with you, just as you have dealt with the dead and with me. 9 May Yahweh grant you that each may find a resting-place in the house of her husband. When she kissed them, they lifted up their voice and wept. 10 They said to her, No, but with you we shall return to your people. 11 Naomi replied, Turn back, my daughters! Why should you go with me? Have I yet sons in my internal parts who might become husbands for you? 12 Turn back, my daughters! Go, for too old am I to belong to a husband. Even if I would say, There is expectation for me, even if I would belong to a husband tonight, even if I would bear sons, 13 should you look forward for them until they grow up? Should you refrain from marriage for them so as not to belong to a husband? It must not be, my daughters, for it is exceedingly more bitter for me than for you; for against me went forth the hand of Yahweh. 14 Then they lifted up their voice and wept again; and Orpah kissed her husband's mother and turned back to her people. As for Ruth, she clung to her. 15 So Naomi said to Ruth, Behold, your sister-in-law has turned back to her people and to her elohim. Turn back after your sister-in-law. 16 Ruth replied, You must not persuade me to forsake you, to turn away from following you; for wherever you go I shall go, and wherever you lodge I shall lodge. Your people will be my people, and your Elohim my Elohim. 17 Where you die, I shall die; and there I shall be entombed. Thus may Yahweh do to me and thus add to it if anything but death parts me from you. 18 When Naomi realized that she was resolute to go with her, she left off arguing with her further. 19 So they went, both of them, until they came to Bethlehem. It came about as they entered Bethlehem, that the whole city was clamoring over them, and the women said, Is this Naomi? 20 She replied to them, You must not call me Naomi. Call me Mara, for He Who-Suffices has brought intense bitterness on me. 21 I was full when I went out, yet empty has Yahweh caused me to return. Why call me Naomi when Yahweh has humbled me, and He Who-Suffices has done evil to me? 22 Thus Naomi returned, and Ruth her Moabite daughter-in-law being with her who had turned away from the fields of Moab. They came to Bethlehem at the start of the barley harvest.
BBE(i) 1 Now there came a time, in the days of the judges, when there was no food in the land. And a certain man went from Beth-lehem-judah, he and his wife and his two sons, to make a living-place in the country of Moab. 2 And the name of the man was Elimelech, and the name of his wife Naomi, and the name of his two sons Mahlon and Chilion, Ephrathites of Beth-lehem-judah. And they came into the country of Moab, and were there for some time. 3 And Elimelech, Naomi's husband, came to his end; and only her two sons were with her. 4 And they took two women of Moab as their wives: the name of the one was Orpah, and the name of the other Ruth; and they went on living there for about ten years. 5 And Mahlon and Chilion came to their end; and the woman was without her two sons and her husband. 6 So she and her daughters-in-law got ready to go back from the country of Moab, for news had come to her in the country of Moab that the Lord, in mercy for his people, had given them food. 7 And she went out of the place where she was, and her two daughters-in-law with her; and they went on their way to go back to the land of Judah. 8 And Naomi said to her two daughters-in-law, Go back to your mothers' houses: may the Lord be good to you as you have been good to the dead and to me: 9 May the Lord give you rest in the houses of your husbands. Then she gave them a kiss; and they were weeping bitterly. 10 And they said to her, No, but we will go back with you to your people. 11 But Naomi said, Go back, my daughters; why will you come with me? Have I more sons in my body, to become your husbands? 12 Go back, my daughters, and go on your way; I am so old now that I may not have another husband. If I said, I have hopes, if I had a husband tonight, and might have sons, 13 Would you keep yourselves till they were old enough? would you keep from having husbands for them? No, my daughters; but I am very sad for you that the hand of the Lord is against me. 14 Then again they were weeping; and Orpah gave her mother-in-law a kiss, but Ruth would not be parted from her. 15 And Naomi said, See, your sister-in-law has gone back to her people and to her gods: go back after your sister-in-law. 16 But Ruth said, Give up requesting me to go away from you, or to go back without you: for where you go I will go; and where you take your rest I will take my rest; your people will be my people, and your God my God. 17 Wherever death comes to you, death will come to me, and there will be my last resting-place; the Lord do so to me and more if we are parted by anything but death. 18 And when she saw that Ruth was strong in her purpose to go with her she said no more. 19 So the two of them went on till they came to Beth-lehem. And when they came to Beth-lehem all the town was moved about them, and they said, Is this Naomi? 20 And she said to them, Do not let my name be Naomi, but Mara, for the Ruler of all has given me a bitter fate. 21 I went out full, and the Lord has sent me back again with nothing; why do you give me the name Naomi, seeing that the Lord has given witness against me, and the Ruler of all has sent sorrow on me? 22 So Naomi came back out of the country of Moab, and Ruth the Moabitess, her daughter-in-law, with her; and they came to Beth-lehem in the first days of the grain-cutting.
MKJV(i) 1 And it happened in the days when the judges ruled, there was a famine in the land. And a certain man of Bethlehem-judah went to live in the country of Moab, he and his wife and his two sons. 2 And the name of the man was Elimelech, and the name of his wife Naomi, and the name of his two sons Mahlon and Chilion, Ephrathites of Bethlehem-judah. And they came to the fields of Moab and stayed there. 3 And Elimelech, Naomi's husband, died. And she was left, and her two sons. 4 And they took wives for themselves from the women of Moab. The name of the one was Orpah, and the name of the other Ruth. And they lived there about ten years. 5 And Mahlon and Chilion also died, both of them. And the woman was left without her two sons and her husband. 6 Then she arose with her daughters-in-law so that she might return from the fields of Moab. For she had heard in the fields of Moab how Jehovah had visited His people in giving them bread. 7 And she went out of the place where she was, and her two daughters-in-law with her, and they went on the way to return to the land of Judah. 8 And Naomi said to her two daughters-in-law, Go, return each one to her mother's house. May Jehovah deal kindly with you, as you have dealt with the dead and with me. 9 May Jehovah grant you that you may find rest, each in the house of her husband. Then she kissed them, and they lifted up their voice and wept. 10 And they said to her, Surely we will return with you to your people. 11 And Naomi said, Turn again, my daughters. Why will you go with me? Are there yet sons in my womb, that they may be your husbands? 12 Turn again, my daughters, go. For I am too old to have a husband. If I should say, I have hope, if I should have a husband also tonight, and should also bear sons, 13 would you wait for them until they were grown? Will you shut yourselves up, not to have a husband? No, my daughters, for it makes me very sad for your sakes that the hand of Jehovah has gone out against me. 14 And they lifted up their voice and wept again. And Orpah kissed her mother-in-law. But Ruth clung to her. 15 And she said, Behold, Your sister-in-law has gone back to her people and to her gods. Return after your sister-in-law. 16 And Ruth said, Do not beg me to leave you, to return from following after you. For where you go, I will go. Where you stay, I will stay. Your people shall be my people, and your God my God. 17 Where you die, I will die, and there I will be buried. May Jehovah do so to me, and more also, if anything but death parts you and me. 18 When she saw that she was determined to go with her, then she quit speaking to her. 19 And both of them went until they came to Bethlehem. And it happened when they had come to Bethlehem, all the city was moved about them, and they said, Is this Naomi? 20 And she said to them, Do not call me Naomi, call me Mara. For the Almighty has dealt very bitterly with me. 21 I went out full, and Jehovah has brought me back empty. Why do you call me Naomi, since Jehovah has testified against me, and the Almighty has afflicted me? 22 And Naomi returned; and Ruth, who was of Moab, her daughter-in-law, was with her, returning out of the fields of Moab. And they came to Bethlehem in the beginning of barley harvest.

RUTH AND NOOMIY
And so be it, in the days the judges judge, a famine is in the land. And a man of Beth Lechem Yah Hudah goes to sojourn in the fields of Moab; he and his woman and his two sons. 2 And the name of the man, Eli Melech and the name of his woman, Noomiy and the name of his two sons, Machlon and Kilyon - Ephrathiym of Beth Lechem Yah Hudah. And they come into the fields of Moab and continue there. 3 And Eli Melech, the man of Noomiy dies; and she and her two sons survive. 4 And they birth women of Moab; the name of the one, Orpah and the name of the second, Ruth; and they settle there about ten years. 5 And both Machlon and Kilyon also die; and the woman survives her two children and her man. 6 And she rises with her daughters in law, to return from the fields of Moab: for she heard that Yah Veh visits his people in the fields of Moab in giving them bread. 7 So she goes with her two daughters in law from the place she was; and they go on the way to return to the land of Yah Hudah. 8 And Noomiy says to her two daughters in law, Go, each woman, return to the house of your mother; Yah Veh work mercy with you, as you worked with the dead and with me. 9 Yah Veh give you to find rest, each woman in the house of her man. - and she kisses them. And they lift their voice and weep 10 and say to her, Surely we return with you to your people. 11 And Noomiy says, Turn back, my daughters! Why go with me? Are there yet sons in my inwards to be your men? 12 Turn back, my daughters! Go! For I am too old to have a man. If I say, I have hope, and even have a man tonight and even birth sons 13 - await you them until they be grown? - ban yourselves from having men? No, my daughters; for it embitters me mightily for your sakes that the hand of Yah Veh goes against me. 14 And they lift their voice and weep again; and Orpah kisses her mother in law; and Ruth adheres to her; 15 and says, Behold, your sister in law returns to her people and to her elohim; you return after your sister in law. 16 And Ruth says, Intercede not that I leave you, or return from following after you; for where you go, I go; and where you stay overnight, I stay overnight; your people are my people and your Elohim, my Elohim; 17 where you die, I die and there I entomb; Yah Veh work to me and add also, if aught but death separate you and me. 18 And she sees that she strengthens herself to go with her; and she ceases wording to her. 19 And the two go until they come to Beth Lechem. And so be it, they come to Beth Lechem, and the whole city quakes about them and they say, Is this Noomiy? 20 And she says to them, Call me not Noomiy/Pleasant; call me Bitter; for Shadday has mightily embittered me. 21 I go out full and Yah Veh turns me back. Why call me Noomiy, seeing Yah Veh answers against me and Shadday vilifies me? 22 And Noomiy returns with her daughter in law, Ruth the Moabiyth who return from the fields of Moab; and they come to Beth Lechem in the beginning of barley harvest.
ACV(i) 1 And it came to pass in the days when the judges judged, that there was a famine in the land. And a certain man of Bethlehem-judah went to sojourn in the country of Moab, he, and his wife, and his two sons. 2 And the name of the man was Elimelech, and the name of his wife Naomi, and the name of his two sons Mahlon and Chilion, Ephrathites of Bethlehem-judah. And they came into the country of Moab, and continued there. 3 And Elimelech, Naomi's husband, died, and she was left, and her two sons. 4 And they took wives for them of the women of Moab. The name of the one was Orpah, and the name of the other Ruth, and they dwelt there about ten years. 5 And Mahlon and Chilion died, both of them, and the woman was left of her two children and of her husband. 6 Then she arose with her daughters-in-law that she might return from the country of Moab, for she had heard in the country of Moab how that LORD had visited his people in giving them bread. 7 And she went forth out of the place where she was, and her two daughters-in-law with her, and they went on the way to return to the land of Judah. 8 And Naomi said to her two daughters-in-law, Go, return each of you to her mother's house. LORD deal kindly with you, as ye have dealt with the dead, and with me. 9 LORD grant you that ye may find rest, each of you in the house of her husband. Then she kissed them, and they lifted up their voices, and wept. 10 And they said to her, No, but we will return with thee to thy people. 11 And Naomi said, Turn again, my daughters. Why will ye go with me? Have I yet sons in my womb, that they may be your husbands? 12 Turn again, my daughters. Go your way, for I am too old to have a husband. If I should say, I have hope. If I should even have a husband tonight, and should also bear sons, 13 would ye therefore delay till they were grown? Would ye therefore stay from having husbands? No, my daughters, for it grieves me much for your sakes, for the hand of LORD has gone forth against me. 14 And they lifted up their voices, and wept again. And Orpah kissed her mother-in-law, but Ruth clung to her. 15 And she said, Behold, thy sister-in-law has gone back to her people, and to her god. Return thou after thy sister-in-law. 16 And Ruth said, Entreat me not to leave thee, and to return from following after thee, for where thou go, I will go, and where thou lodge, I will lodge. Thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God. 17 Where thou die, I will die, and there I will be buried. LORD do so to me, and more also, if anything but death parts thee and me. 18 And when she saw that she was steadfastly minded to go with her, she left off speaking to her. 19 So those two went until they came to Bethlehem. And it came to pass, when they came to Bethlehem, that all the city was moved about them, and [the women] said, Is this Naomi? 20 And she said to them, Call me not Naomi. Call me Mara, for the Almighty has dealt very bitterly with me. 21 I went out full, and LORD has brought me home again empty. Why do ye call me Naomi, seeing LORD has testified against me, and the Almighty has afflicted me? 22 So Naomi returned, and Ruth the Moabitess, her daughter-in-law, with her, who returned out of the country of Moab. And they came to Bethlehem in the beginning of barley harvest.
WEB(i) 1 In the days when the judges judged, there was a famine in the land. A certain man of Bethlehem Judah went to live in the country of Moab with his wife and his two sons. 2 The name of the man was Elimelech, and the name of his wife Naomi. The names of his two sons were Mahlon and Chilion, Ephrathites of Bethlehem Judah. They came into the country of Moab and lived there. 3 Elimelech, Naomi’s husband, died; and she was left with her two sons. 4 They took for themselves wives of the women of Moab. The name of the one was Orpah, and the name of the other was Ruth. They lived there about ten years. 5 Mahlon and Chilion both died, and the woman was bereaved of her two children and of her husband. 6 Then she arose with her daughters-in-law, that she might return from the country of Moab; for she had heard in the country of Moab how Yahweh had visited his people in giving them bread. 7 She went out of the place where she was, and her two daughters-in-law with her. They went on the way to return to the land of Judah. 8 Naomi said to her two daughters-in-law, “Go, return each of you to her mother’s house. May Yahweh deal kindly with you, as you have dealt with the dead and with me. 9 May Yahweh grant you that you may find rest, each of you in the house of her husband.” Then she kissed them, and they lifted up their voices, and wept. 10 They said to her, “No, but we will return with you to your people.” 11 Naomi said, “Go back, my daughters. Why do you want to go with me? Do I still have sons in my womb, that they may be your husbands? 12 Go back, my daughters, go your way; for I am too old to have a husband. If I should say, ‘I have hope,’ if I should even have a husband tonight, and should also bear sons, 13 would you then wait until they were grown? Would you then refrain from having husbands? No, my daughters, for it grieves me seriously for your sakes, for Yahweh’s hand has gone out against me.” 14 They lifted up their voices and wept again; then Orpah kissed her mother-in-law, but Ruth stayed with her. 15 She said, “Behold, your sister-in-law has gone back to her people and to her god. Follow your sister-in-law.” 16 Ruth said, “Don’t urge me to leave you, and to return from following you, for where you go, I will go; and where you stay, I will stay. Your people will be my people, and your God my God. 17 Where you die, I will die, and there I will be buried. May Yahweh do so to me, and more also, if anything but death parts you and me.” 18 When Naomi saw that she was determined to go with her, she stopped urging her. 19 So they both went until they came to Bethlehem. When they had come to Bethlehem, all the city was excited about them, and they asked, “Is this Naomi?” 20 She said to them, “Don’t call me Naomi. Call me Mara, for the Almighty has dealt very bitterly with me. 21 I went out full, and Yahweh has brought me home again empty. Why do you call me Naomi, since Yahweh has testified against me, and the Almighty has afflicted me?” 22 So Naomi returned, and Ruth the Moabitess, her daughter-in-law, with her, who returned out of the country of Moab. They came to Bethlehem in the beginning of barley harvest.

  1 H3117 It happened in the days H8199 when the judges H8199 judged, H7458 that there was a famine H776 in the land. H376 A certain man H1035 of Bethlehem Judah H3212 went H1481 to live H7704 in the country H4124 of Moab, H802 he, and his wife, H8147 and his two H1121 sons.
  2 H8034 The name H376 of the man H458 was Elimelech, H8034 and the name H802 of his wife H5281 Naomi, H8034 and the name H8147 of his two H1121 sons H4248 Mahlon H3630 and Chilion, H673 Ephrathites H1035 of Bethlehem Judah. H935 They came H7704 into the country H4124 of Moab, and continued there.
  3 H458 Elimelech, H5281 Naomi's H376 husband, H4191 died; H7604 and she was left, H8147 and her two H1121 sons.
  4 H5375 They took H802 them wives H802 of the women H4125 of Moab; H8034 the name H259 of the one H6204 was Orpah, H8034 and the name H8145 of the other H7327 Ruth: H3427 and they lived H6235 there about ten H8141 years.
  5 H4248 Mahlon H3630 and Chilion H8147 both H4191 died, H802 and the woman H7604 was bereaved H8147 of her two H3206 children H376 and of her husband.
  6 H6965 Then she arose H3618 with her daughters-in-law, H7725 that she might return H7704 from the country H4124 of Moab: H8085 for she had heard H7704 in the country H4124 of Moab H3068 how that Yahweh H6485 had visited H5971 his people H5414 in giving H3899 them bread.
  7 H3318 She went forth H4725 out of the place H8147 where she was, and her two H3618 daughters-in-law H3212 with her; and they went H1870 on the way H7725 to return H776 to the land H3063 of Judah.
  8 H5281 Naomi H559 said H8147 to her two H3618 daughters-in-law, H3212 "Go, H7725 return H802 each H517 of you to her mother's H1004 house: H3068 Yahweh H6213 deal H2617 kindly H6213 with you, as you have dealt H4191 with the dead, and with me.
  9 H3068 Yahweh H5414 grant H4672 you that you may find H4496 rest, H802 each H1004 of you in the house H376 of her husband." H5401 Then she kissed H5375 them, and they lifted up H6963 their voice, H1058 and wept.
  10 H559 They said H7725 to her, "No, but we will return H5971 with you to your people."
  11 H5281 Naomi H559 said, H7725 "Go back, H1323 my daughters. H3212 Why do you want to go H1121 with me? Do I still have sons H4578 in my womb, H582 that they may be your husbands?
  12 H7725 Go back, H1323 my daughters, H3212 go H2204 your way; for I am too old H376 to have a husband. H559 If I should say, H3426 ‘I have H8615 hope,' H376 if I should even have a husband H3915 tonight, H3205 and should also bear H1121 sons;
  13 H7663 would you then wait H3860 until they H1431 were grown? H5702 Would you then refrain H3860 from H376 having husbands? H1323 No, my daughters, H4843 for it grieves H3966 me much H3027 for your sakes, for the hand H3068 of Yahweh H3318 has gone out against me."
  14 H5375 They lifted up H6963 their voice, H1058 and wept again: H6204 and Orpah H5401 kissed H2545 her mother-in-law, H1692 but Ruth joined with her.
  15 H559 She said, H2994 "Behold, your sister-in-law H7725 has gone back H5971 to her people, H430 and to her god. H7725 Follow H310 your H2994 sister-in-law."
  16 H559 Ruth said, H6293 "Don't entreat H5800 me to leave H7725 you, and to return H310 from following after H3212 you, for where you go, H3212 I will go; H3885 and where you lodge, H3885 I will lodge; H5971 your people H5971 shall be my people, H430 and your God H430 my God;
  17 H4191 where you die, H4191 will I die, H6912 and there will I be buried. H3068 Yahweh H6213 do H3254 so to me, and more H4194 also, if anything but death H6504 part you and me."
  18 H7200 When she saw H553 that she was steadfastly minded H3212 to go H2308 with her, she left H1696 off speaking to her.
  19 H8147 So they two H3212 went H935 until they came H1035 to Bethlehem. H935 It happened, when they had come H1035 to Bethlehem, H5892 that all the city H1949 was moved H559 about them, and they asked, H5281 "Is this Naomi?"
  20 H559 She said H7121 to them, "Don't call H5281 me Naomi. H7121 Call H4755 me Mara; H7706 for the Almighty H3966 has dealt very H4843 bitterly with me.
  21 H1980 I went out H4392 full, H3068 and Yahweh H7725 has brought me home again H7387 empty; H7121 why do you call H5281 me Naomi, H3068 since Yahweh H6030 has testified H7706 against me, and the Almighty H7489 has afflicted me?"
  22 H5281 So Naomi H7725 returned, H4125 and Ruth the Moabitess, H3618 her daughter-in-law, H7725 with her, who returned H7704 out of the country H4124 of Moab: H935 and they came H1035 to Bethlehem H8462 in the beginning H8184 of barley H7105 harvest.

Follow your sister-in-law. 16 Ruth said, "Do not urge me to leave you, and to return from following after you, for where you go, I will go; and where you stay, I will stay; your people shall be my people, and your God my God; 17 where you die, will I die, and there will I be buried. The LORD do so to me, and more also, if anything but death part you and me." 18 When she saw that she was steadfastly minded to go with her, she left off speaking to her. 19 So they two went until they came to Bethlehem.

  1 H1961 Now it came H3117 to pass in the days H8199 when the judges H8199 ruled, H7458 that there was a famine H776 in the land. H376 And a certain man H1035 of Bethlehemjudah H3212 went H1481 to sojourn H7704 in the country H4124 of Moab, H802 he, and his wife, H8147 and his two H1121 sons.
  2 H8034 And the name H376 of the man H458 was Elimelech, H8034 and the name H802 of his wife H5281 Naomi, H8034 and the name H8147 of his two H1121 sons H4248 Mahlon H3630 and Chilion, H673 Ephrathites H1035 of Bethlehemjudah. H935 And they came H7704 into the country H4124 of Moab, H1961 and continued H8033 there.
  3 H458 And Elimelech H5281 Naomi’s H376 husband H4191 died; H7604 and she was left, H8147 and her two H1121 sons.
  4 H5375 And they took H802 them wives H802 of the women H4125 of Moab; H8034 the name H259 of the one H6204 was Orpah, H8034 and the name H8145 of the other H7327 Ruth: H3427 and they dwelled H8033 there H6235 about ten H8141 years.
  5 H4248 And Mahlon H3630 and Chilion H4191 died H1571 also H8147 both H802 of them; and the woman H7604 was left H8147 of her two H3206 sons H376 and her husband.
  6 H6965 Then she arose H3618 with her daughters H3618 in law, H7725 that she might return H7704 from the country H4124 of Moab: H8085 for she had heard H7704 in the country H4124 of Moab H3068 how that the LORD H6485 had visited H5971 his people H5414 in giving H3899 them bread.
  7 H3318 Why she went H3318 forth H4725 out of the place H834 where H8033 H8147 she was, and her two H3618 daughters H3618 in law H3212 with her; and they went H1870 on the way H7725 to return H776 to the land H3063 of Judah.
  8 H5281 And Naomi H559 said H8147 to her two H3618 daughters H3618 in law, H3212 Go, H7725 return H802 each H517 to her mother’s H1004 house: H3068 the LORD H6213 deal H2617 kindly H6213 with you, as you have dealt H4191 with the dead, and with me.
  9 H3068 The LORD H5414 grant H4672 you that you may find H4496 rest, H802 each H1004 of you in the house H376 of her husband. H5401 Then she kissed H5375 them; and they lifted H6963 up their voice, H1058 and wept.
  10 H559 And they said H3588 to her, Surely H7725 we will return H5971 with you to your people.
  11 H5281 And Naomi H559 said, H7725 Turn H7725 again, H1323 my daughters: H4100 why H3212 will you go H5750 with me? are there yet H1121 any more sons H4578 in my womb, H582 that they may be your husbands?
  12 H7725 Turn H7725 again, H1323 my daughters, H3212 go H2204 your way; for I am too old H376 to have an husband. H3588 If H559 I should say, H8615 I have hope, H3588 if H376 I should have an husband H1571 also H3915 to night, H1571 and should also H3205 bear H1121 sons;
  13 H7663 Would you tarry H5704 for them till H1431 they were grown? H5702 would you stay H376 for them from having husbands? H408 no, H1323 my daughters; H4843 for it grieves H3966 me much H3027 for your sakes that the hand H3068 of the LORD H3318 is gone out against me.
  14 H5375 And they lifted H6963 up their voice, H1058 and wept H5750 again: H6204 and Orpah H5401 kissed H2545 her mother H2545 in law; H7327 but Ruth H1692 joined to her.
  15 H559 And she said, H2009 Behold, H2994 your sister H2994 in law H7725 is gone H7725 back H5971 to her people, H430 and to her gods: H7725 return H310 you after H2994 your sister H2994 in law.
  16 H7327 And Ruth H559 said, H6293 Entreat H5800 me not to leave H7725 you, or to return H310 from following after H413 you: for where H834 H3212 you go, H3212 I will go; H834 and where H3885 you lodge, H3885 I will lodge: H5971 your people H5971 shall be my people, H430 and your God H430 my God:
  17 H834 Where H4191 you die, H4191 will I die, H8033 and there H6912 will I be buried: H3068 the LORD H6213 do H3541 so H3254 to me, and more H3541 also, H3588 if H4194 ought but death H6504 part you and me.
  18 H7200 When she saw H553 that she was steadfastly H3212 minded to go H2308 with her, then she left H1696 speaking to her.
  19 H8147 So they two H3212 went H5704 until H935 they came H1035 to Bethlehem. H1961 And it came H935 to pass, when they were come H1035 to Bethlehem, H3605 that all H5892 the city H1949 was moved H5921 about H559 them, and they said, H2063 Is this H5281 Naomi?
  20 H559 And she said H7121 to them, Call H5281 me not Naomi, H7121 call H4755 me Mara: H7706 for the Almighty H3966 has dealt very H4843 bitterly with me.
  21 H1980 I went H4390 out full H3068 and the LORD H7725 has brought H7725 me home H7725 again H7387 empty: H4100 why H7121 then call H5281 you me Naomi, H3068 seeing the LORD H6030 has testified H7706 against me, and the Almighty H7489 has afflicted me?
  22 H5281 So Naomi H7725 returned, H7327 and Ruth H4125 the Moabitess, H3618 her daughter H3618 in law, H7725 with her, which returned H7704 out of the country H4124 of Moab: H935 and they came H1035 to Bethlehem H8462 in the beginning H8184 of barley H7105 harvest.

And they came into the country of Moab, and continued there. 3 And Elimelech Naomi's husband died; and she was left, and her two sons. 4 And they took them wives of the women of Moab; the name of the one was Orpah, and the name of the other Ruth: and they dwelled there about ten years. 5 And Mahlon and Chilion died also both of them; and the woman was left without her two sons and her husband. 6 Then she arose with her daughters-in-law, that she might return from the country of Moab: for she had heard in the country of Moab how that the Lord had visited his people in giving them food. 7 Therefore she went forth out of the place where she was, and her two daughters-in-law with her; and they went on the way to return unto the land of Judah. 8 And Naomi said unto her two daughters-in-law, Go, return each of you to her mother's house: the LORD deal kindly with you, as you have dealt with the dead, and with me. 9 The LORD grant you that you may find rest, each of you in the house of her husband. Then she kissed them; and they lifted up their voices, and wept. 10 And they said unto her, Surely we will return with you unto your people. 11 And Naomi said, Turn again, my daughters: why will you go with me? are there yet any more sons in my womb, that they may be your husbands? 12 Turn again, my daughters, go your way; for I am too old to have a husband. If I should say, I have hope, if I should have a husband also tonight, and should also bear sons; 13 Would you tarry for them till they were grown? would you refrain from having husbands? nay, my daughters; for it grieves me much for your sakes that the hand of the LORD has gone out against me. 14 And they lifted up their voices, and wept again: and Orpah kissed her mother-in-law; but Ruth clung to her. 15 And she said, Behold, your sister-in-law has gone back unto her people, and unto her gods: return you after your sister-in-law. 16 And Ruth said, Entreat me not to leave you, or to return from following after you: for where you go, I will go; and where you lodge, I will lodge: your people shall be my people, and your God my God: 17 Where you die, will I die, and there will I be buried: the LORD do so to me, and more also, if anything but death parts you and me. 18 When she saw that she was steadfastly minded to go with her, then she ceased speaking unto her. 19 So they two went until they came to Bethlehem. And it came to pass, when they were come to Bethlehem, that all the city was stirred because of them, and they said, Is this Naomi? 20 And she said unto them, Call me not Naomi, call me Mara: for the Almighty has dealt very bitterly with me. 21 I went out full, and the LORD has brought me home again empty: why then call you me Naomi, seeing the LORD has testified against me, and the Almighty has afflicted me? 22 So Naomi returned, and Ruth the Moabitess, her daughter-in-law, with her, who returned out of the country of Moab: and they came to Bethlehem in the beginning of barley harvest.

If I should say, I have hope, if I should have an husband also to night, and should also bear sons; 13 Would all of you tarry for them till they were grown? would all of you stay for them from having husbands? nay, my daughters; for it grieves me much for your sakes that the hand of the LORD is gone out against me. 14 And they lifted up their voice, and wept again: and Orpah kissed her mother in law; but Ruth clave unto her. 15 And she said, Behold, your sister in law is gone back unto her people, and unto her gods: return you after your sister in law. 16 And Ruth said, Implore me not to leave you, or to return from following after you: for where you go, I will go; and where you lodge, I will lodge: your people shall be my people, and your God my God: 17 Where you die, will I die, and there will I be buried: the LORD do so to me, and more also, if ought but death part you and me. 18 When she saw that she was steadfastly minded to go with her, then she left speaking unto her. 19 So they two went until they came to Bethlehem. And it came to pass, when they were come to Bethlehem, that all the city was moved about them, and they said, Is this Naomi? 20 And she said unto them, Call me not Naomi, call me Mara: for the Almighty has dealt very bitterly with me. 21 I went out full and the LORD has brought me home again empty: why then call all of you me Naomi, seeing the LORD has testified against me, and the Almighty has afflicted me? 22 So Naomi returned, and Ruth the Moabitess, her daughter in law, with her, which returned out of the country of Moab: and they came to Bethlehem in the beginning of barley harvest.

  1 H3117 Now it came to pass in the days H8199 when the judges H8199 ruled, H7458 that there was a famine H776 in the land. H376 And a certain man H1035 of Beth–lehem–judah H3212 went H1481 to live H7704 in the country H4124 of Moab, H802 he, and his wife, H8147 and his two H1121 sons.
  2 H8034 And the name H376 of the man H458 was Elimelech, H8034 and the name H802 of his wife H5281 Naomi, H8034 and the name H8147 of his two H1121 sons H4248 Mahlon H3630 and Chilion, H673 Ephrathites H1035 of Beth–lehem–judah. H935 And they came H7704 into the country H4124 of Moab, and stayed there.
  3 H458 And Elimelech H5281 Naomi's H376 husband H4191 died; H7604 and she was left, H8147 and her two H1121 sons.
  4 H5375 And they took H802 wives H802 of the women H4125 of Moab; H8034 the name H259 of the one H6204 was Orpah, H8034 and the name H8145 of the other H7327 Ruth: H3427 and they lived H6235 there about ten H8141 years.
  5 H4248 And Mahlon H3630 and Chilion H4191 died H8147 also both H802 of them; and the woman H7604 was left H8147 of her two H3206 sons H376 and her husband.
  6 H6965 Then she arose H3618 with her daughters in law, H7725 that she might return H7704 from the country H4124 of Moab: H8085 for she had heard H7704 in the country H4124 of Moab H3068 how that the Lord H6485 had visited H5971 his people H5414 in giving H3899 them bread.
  7 H3318 And she went forth H4725 out of the place H8147 where she was, and her two H3618 daughters in law H3212 with her; and they went H1870 on the way H7725 to return H776 unto the land H3063 of Judah.
  8 H5281 And Naomi H559 said H8147 unto her two H3618 daughters in law, H3212 Go, H7725 return H802 each H517 to your mother's H1004 house: H3068 the Lord H6213 deal H2617 kindly H6213 with you, as you have dealt H4191 with the dead, and with me.
  9 H3068 The Lord H5414 grant H4672 you that you may find H4496 rest, H802 each H1004 of you in the house H376 of her husband. H5401 Then she kissed H5375 them; and they lifted up H6963 their voice, H1058 and wept.
  10 H559 And they said H7725 unto her, Surely we will return H5971 with you unto your people.
  11 H5281 And Naomi H559 said, H7725 Turn again, H1323 my daughters: H3212 why will you go H1121 with me? are there yet any more sons H4578 in my womb, H582 that they may be your husbands?
  12 H7725 Turn again, H1323 my daughters, H3212 go H2204 your way; for I am too old H376 to have a husband. H559 If I should say, H3426 I have H8615 hope, H376 if I should have a husband H3915 tonight, H3205 and should also carry H1121 sons;
  13 H7663 Would you wait H3860 for them H1431 until they were grown? H5702 would you refrain, H3860 for them, H376 from having husbands? H1323 No, my daughters; H4843 for it grieves H3966 me much H3027 for your sakes that the hand H3068 of the Lord H3318 is gone out against me.
  14 H5375 And they lifted up H6963 their voice, H1058 and wept again: H6204 and Orpah H5401 kissed H2545 her mother in law; H7327 but Ruth H1692 joined her.
  15 H559 And she said, H2994 Behold, your sister in law H7725 is gone back H5971 unto her people, H430 and unto her gods: H7725 return H310 after H2994 your sister in law.
  16 H7327 And Ruth H559 said, H6293 Entreat H5800 me not to leave H7725 you, or to return H310 from following after H3212 you: for where you go, H3212 I will go; H3885 and where you lodge, H3885 I will lodge: H5971 your people H5971 shall be my people, H430 and your God H430 my God:
  17 H4191 Where you die, H4191 will I die, H6912 and there will I be buried: H3068 the Lord H6213 do H3254 so to me, and more H4194 also, if anything but death H6504 part you and me.
  18 H7200 When she saw H553 that she was steadfastly minded H3212 to go H2308 with her, then she quit H1696 speaking to her about it.
  19 H8147 So they two H3212 went H935 until they came H1035 to Beth–lehem. H935 And it came to pass, when they were come H1035 to Beth–lehem, H5892 that all the city H1949 was moved H559 about them, and they said, H5281 Is this Naomi?
  20 H559 And she said H7121 unto them, Call H5281 me not Naomi, H7121 call H4755 me Mara: H7706 for the Almighty H3966 has dealt very H4843 bitterly with me.
  21 H1980 I went out H4392 full, H3068 and the Lord H7725 has brought me home again H7387 empty: H7121 why then call H5281 you me Naomi, H3068 seeing the Lord H6030 has testified H7706 against me, and the Almighty H7489 has afflicted me?
  22 H5281 So Naomi H7725 returned, H7327 and Ruth H4125 the Moabitess, H3618 her daughter in law, H7725 with her, which returned H7704 out of the country H4124 of Moab: H935 and they came H1035 to Beth–lehem H8462 in the beginning H8184 of barley H7105 harvest.
EJ2000(i) 1 ¶ Now it came to pass in the days when the judges governed that there was a famine in the land. And a certain man of Bethlehem of Judah went to sojourn in the fields of Moab, he, and his wife, and his two sons. 2 And the name of the man was Elimelech, and the name of his wife Naomi, and the name of his two sons Mahlon and Chilion, Ephrathites of Bethlehem of Judah. And they came into the fields of Moab and continued there. 3 And Elimelech, Naomi’s husband, died, and she was left with her two sons, 4 who took wives for themselves of the women of Moab; the name of the one was Orpah, and the name of the other Ruth; and they dwelt there about ten years. 5 And Mahlon and Chilion both died also; and the woman was left without her two sons and her husband. 6 ¶ Then she arose with her daughters-in-law, to return from the fields of Moab, for she had heard in the field of Moab how the LORD had visited his people to give them bread. 7 Therefore she went forth out of the place where she had been and her two daughters-in-law with her; and they went on the way to return unto the land of Judah. 8 And Naomi said unto her two daughters-in-law, Go, return each of you to thy mother’s house; the LORD deal with you in mercy as ye have dealt with the dead and with me. 9 The LORD grant you that ye may find rest, each of you in the house of her husband. Then she kissed them, and they lifted up their voice and wept. 10 And they said unto her, Surely we will return with thee unto thy people. 11 And Naomi replied, Go back, my daughters; why must ye go with me? Do I have more sons in my womb that they may be your husbands? 12 Turn, my daughters, and go back, for I am too old to have a husband. Even if I should say, I have hope, if I should have a husband tonight and should also bear sons, 13 should ye tarry for them until they are grown? Should ye stay without husbands because of them? No, my daughters, for I have greater bitterness than you because the hand of the LORD has come out against me. 14 And they lifted up their voice and wept again, and Orpah kissed her mother-in-law, but Ruth cleaved unto her. 15 And she said, Behold, thy sister-in-law has returned to her people and to her gods; return thou after thy sister-in-law. 16 And Ruth said, Do not intreat me to leave thee or to return from following after thee, for wherever thou goest, I will go; and wherever thou shalt lodge, I will lodge; thy people shall be my people and thy God my God. 17 Where thou diest, I will die, and there will I be buried; let the LORD do so unto me and let him give unto me that only death shall part thee and me. 18 When she saw that she was courageous to go with her, then she left off speaking to her. 19 ¶ So the two walked until they came to Bethlehem. And it came to pass, entering into Bethlehem, that all the city was moved because of them, and they said, Is this Naomi? 20 And she said unto them, Call me not Naomi, call me Mara; for the Almighty has dealt very bitterly with me. 21 I went out full, and the LORD has brought me home again empty. Why then call ye me Naomi, seeing the LORD has testified against me, and the Almighty has afflicted me? 22 So Naomi returned, and Ruth the Moabitess, her daughter-in-law, with her, who returned out of the fields of Moab, and they came to Bethlehem in the beginning of barley harvest.
CAB(i) 1 And it came to pass in the days when the judges ruled, that there was a famine in the land. And a man went from Bethlehem, Judah to sojourn in the land of Moab — he, his wife, and his two sons. 2 And the man's name was Elimelech, and his wife's name was Naomi, and the names of his two sons were Mahlon and Chilion — Ephrathites of Bethlehem, Judah. And they came to the land of Moab, and remained there. 3 And Elimelech, Naomi's husband died; and she was left, and her two sons. 4 And they took to themselves wives, women of Moab; the name of the one was Orpah, and the name of the second was Ruth; and they dwelt there about ten years. 5 And both Mahlon and Chilion died also; and the woman survived her husband and her two sons. 6 And she rose up, and her two daughters-in-law, and they returned out of the country of Moab, for she heard in the country of Moab that the Lord had visited His people to give them bread. 7 And she went forth out of the place where she was, and her two daughters-in-law with her; and they went by the way to return to the land of Judah. 8 And Naomi said to her daughters-in-law, Go now, return each to the house of her mother: the Lord deal mercifully with you, as you have dealt with the dead, and with me. 9 The Lord grant you that you may find rest, each of you in the house of her husband. And she kissed them, and they lifted up their voice, and wept. 10 And they said to her, We will return with you to your people. 11 And Naomi said, Return now, my daughters; and why do you go with me? Have I yet sons in my womb to be your husbands? 12 Turn now, my daughters, for I am too old to be married: for I said, Suppose I were married, and should bear sons; 13 would you wait for them till they should be grown? Or would you refrain from being married for their sakes? Not so, my daughters, for I am grieved for you, that the hand of the Lord has gone forth against me. 14 And they lifted up their voice, and wept again; and Orpah kissed her mother-in-law and returned to her people; but Ruth followed her. 15 And Naomi said to Ruth, Behold, your sister-in-law has returned to her people and to her gods; turn now also after your sister-in-law. 16 And Ruth said, Entreat me not to leave you, or to return from following you; for wherever you go, I will go, and wherever you lodge, I will lodge; your people shall be my people, and your God my God. 17 And wherever you die, I will die, and there will I be buried: the Lord do so to me, and more also, if I leave you, for death only shall divide between me and you. 18 And Naomi, seeing that she was determined to go with her, ceased to speak to her anymore. 19 Now they both went until they came to Bethlehem. And it came to pass, when they arrived at Bethlehem, that all the city was excited because of them, and they said, Is this Naomi? 20 And she said to them, No, do not call me Naomi; call me 'Bitter,' for the Mighty One has dealt very bitterly with me. 21 I went out full, and the Lord has brought me back empty. And why do you call me Naomi, seeing the Lord has humbled me and the Mighty One has afflicted me? 22 So Naomi and Ruth the Moabitess, her daughter-in-law, returned from the country of Moab; and they came to Bethlehem in the beginning of barley harvest.
LXX2012(i) 1 And it came to pass when the judges ruled, that there was a famine in the land: and a man went from Bethleem Juda to sojourn in the land of Moab, he, and his wife, and his two sons. 2 And the man's name [was] Elimelech, and his wife's name Noemin, and the names of his two sons Maalon and Chelaion, Ephrathites of Bethleem of Juda: and they came to the land of Moab, and remained there. 3 And Elimelech the husband of Noemin died; and she was left, and her two sons. 4 And they took to themselves wives, women of Moab; the name of the one [was] Orpha, and the name of the second Ruth; and they lived there about ten years. 5 And both Maalon and Chelaion died also; and the woman was left of her husband and her two sons. 6 And she rose up and her two daughters-in-law, and they returned out of the country of Moab, for she heard in the country of Moab that the Lord [had] visited his people to give them bread. 7 And she went forth out of the place where she was, and her two daughters-in-law with her: and they went by the way to return to the land of Juda. 8 And Noemin said to her daughter-in-law, Go now, return each to the house of her mother: the Lord deal mercifully with you, as you⌃ have dealt with the dead, and with me. 9 The Lord grant you that you⌃ may find rest each of you in the house of her husband: and she kissed them; and they lifted up their voice, and wept. 10 And they said to her, We will return with you to your people. 11 And Noemin said, Return now, my daughters; and why do you⌃ go with me? have I yet sons in my womb to be your husbands? 12 Turn now, my daughters, for I am too old to be married: for I said, Suppose I were married, and should bear sons; 13 would you⌃ wait for them till they should be grown? or would you⌃ refrain from being married for their sakes? Not so, my daughters; for I am grieved for you, that the hand of the Lord has gone forth against me. 14 And they lifted up their voice, and wept again; and Orpha kissed her mother-in-law and returned to her people; but Ruth followed her. 15 And Noemin said to Ruth, Behold, your sister-in-law has returned to her people and to her gods; turn now you also after your sister-in-law. 16 And Ruth said, Intreat me not to leave you, or to return from following you; for wherever you go, I will go, and wherever you lodge, I will lodge; your people [shall be] my people, and your God my God. 17 And wherever you die, I will die, and there will I be buried: the Lord do so to me, and more also, [if I leave you], for death [only] shall divide between me and you. 18 And Noemin seeing that she was determined to go with her, ceased to speak to her any more. 19 And they went both of them until they came to Bethleem: and it came to pass, when they arrived at Bethleem, that all the city rang with them, and they said, Is this Noemin? 20 And she said to them, Nay, do not call me Noemin; call me 'Bitter,' for the Mighty One has dealt very bitterly with me. 21 I went out full, and the Lord has brought me back empty: and why call you⌃ me Noemin, whereas the Lord has humbled me and the Mighty One has afflicted me? 22 So Noemin and Ruth the Moabitess, her daughter-in-law, returned from the country of Moab; and they came to Bethleem in the beginning of barley harvest.
NSB(i) 1 There was a famine in the land in the days when the judges ruled. And a man of Bethlehem in Judah went to live in the country of Moab, he and his wife and his two sons. 2 The man was Elimelech, and his wife was Naomi, and the two sons were Mahlon and Chilion, Ephrathites of Bethlehem in Judah. They went to Moab and stayed there. 3 Naomi’s husband Elimelech died. And she was left with her two sons. 4 They took two women of Moab as their wives. One was Orpah and the other Ruth. They made their home there for about ten years. 5 Mahlon and Chilion also died. Naomi was left all alone. She had no husband or sons. 6 Some time later Naomi heard that Jehovah blessed his people by giving them good crops. So she got ready to leave Moab with her daughters-in-law. 7 They started out together to go back to Judah. 8 On the way she said to them: »Go back home and stay with your mothers. Jehovah should be as good to you as you have been to me and to those who have died. 9 »May Jehovah make it possible for each of you to marry again and have a home.« Then Naomi kissed them good-bye and they cried. 10 They said to her: »No! We will go with you to your people.« 11 »You must go back, my daughters,« Naomi replied. »Why do you want to come with me? Do you think I could have sons again for you to marry? 12 »Return home, my daughters. I am too old to get married again. Even if I thought there was still hope, and got married and had sons, 13 »would you wait for them to grow up? Would this keep you from marrying someone else? No, my daughters, you know that is not possible. Jehovah has turned against me. I feel sorry for you.« 14 They started crying again. Orpah kissed her mother-in-law good-bye and went back home. Ruth held on to her. 15 Naomi said to her: »Ruth, your sister-in-law went back to her people and her gods. Go back home with her. 16 Ruth replied: »Do not ask me to leave you! Let me go with you. Wherever you go, I will go; wherever you live, I will live. Your people will be my people, and your God will be my God. 17 »Wherever you die, I will die. That is where I will be buried. May Jehovah’s worst punishment come upon me if I let anything but death separate me from you!« 18 When she saw that Ruth was determined to go with her, she said no more. 19 The two of them traveled to Bethlehem. When they arrived at Bethlehem the whole town was excited because of them. The women said: »Is this Naomi?« 20 She said: »Do not call me Naomi (meaning pleasant). Call me Mara, because the Almighty has made my life bitter. 21 »I went away full, and Jehovah sent me back empty. Why do you give me the name Naomi, seeing that Jehovah has given witness against me, and the Almighty has brought sorrow to me?« 22 So Naomi came back out of the country of Moab. Ruth the Moabitess, her daughter-in-law, came with her. They came to Bethlehem in the first days of the barley harvest.
ISV(i) 1 Now there came a time of famine while judges were ruling in the land of Israel. A man from Bethlehem of Judah, his wife, and his two sons left to live in the country of Moab. 2 The man's name was Elimelech, his wife's name was Naomi, and their two sons were named Mahlon and Chilion {— } Ephrathites from Bethlehem of Judah. They journeyed to the country of Moab and lived there for some time. 3 Then Naomi's husband Elimelech died, and she was left with her two sons. 4 Each of her sons married Moabite women: one named Orpah and the other named Ruth. After they lived there about ten years, 5 both Mahlon and Chilion died, leaving Naomi alone with neither her husband nor her two sons. 6 She and her daughters-in-law prepared to return from the country of Moab, because she had heard while living there how the LORD had come to the aid of his people, giving them relief. 7 So she left the place where she had been, along with her two daughters-in-law, and they traveled along the return road to the land of Judah. 8 But along the way, Naomi said to her two daughters-in-law, "Each of you go back home. Return to your mother's house. May the LORD show his gracious love to you, as you have shown me and our loved ones who have died. 9 May the LORD grant each of you security in your new husbands' households." Then she kissed them good-bye, and they cried loudly. 10 They both replied to her, "No! We will go back with you to your people." 11 But Naomi responded, "Go back, my daughters. Why go with me? Are there still sons to be born to me as future husbands for you? 12 So go on back, my daughters! Be on your way! I'm too old to remarry. If I were to say that I'm hoping for a husband tonight and then also bore sons this very night, 13 would you wait for them until they were grown? Would you refrain from marriage for them? No, my daughters! I'm more deeply grieved than you, because the LORD is working against me!" 14 They began to cry loudly again. So Orpah kissed her mother-in-law good-bye, but Ruth remained with her. 15 Naomi said to Ruth, "Look, your sister-in-law has returned to her people and to her gods. Follow your sister-in-law!" 16 But Ruth answered, "Stop urging me to abandon you and to turn back from following you. Because wherever you go, I'll go. Wherever you live, I'll live. Your people will be my people, and your God, my God. 17 Where you die, I'll die and be buried. May the LORD do this to me {— } and more {— } if anything except death comes between you and me." 18 When Naomi observed Ruth's determination to travel with her, she ended the conversation. 19 So they continued on until they reached Bethlehem. Now when the two of them arrived in Bethlehem, the entire town got excited at the news of their arrival and they asked one another, "Can this be Naomi?" 20 But Naomi replied, "Don't call me 'Naomi'! Call me 'Mara'! That's because the Almighty has dealt bitterly with me. 21 I left here full, but the LORD brought me back empty. So why call me 'Naomi'? After all, the LORD is against me, and the Almighty has broken me." 22 So Naomi returned to Bethlehem from the country of Moab, along with her daughter-in-law Ruth the Moabite woman. And they arrived in Bethlehem at the beginning of the barley harvest.
LEB(i) 1 And it happened in the days when the judges ruled,* there was a famine in the land, and a man from Bethlehem of Judah went to reside* in the countryside of Moab—he and his wife and his two sons. 2 And the name of the man was Elimelech, and the name of his wife was Naomi, and the names of his two sons were Mahlon and Kilion. They were Ephraimites from Bethlehem in Judah. And they went to the countryside of Moab and remained there. 3 But Elimelech the husband of Naomi died and she was left behind with her two sons.* 4 And they took* for themselves Moabite wives. The name of the one was Orpah and the name of the other was Ruth. And they lived there about ten years. 5 But both* Mahlon and Kilion died, and the woman was left without her two sons and without her husband. 6 And she got up, she and her daughters-in-law, and returned from the countryside of Moab, because she had heard in the countryside of Moab that Yahweh had come to the aid of* his people to give food to them. 7 So she set out from the place where she was* and her two daughters-in-law with her, and they went on the way to return to the land of Judah. 8 But Naomi said to her two daughters-in-law, "Go, each of you return to her mother's house. May Yahweh show kindness to you* just as you did with the dead and with me. 9 May Yahweh grant that you* find a resting place, each in the house of her husband." And she kissed them, and they lifted up their voices and cried. 10 And they said to her, "No, we want to return with you to your people." 11 And Naomi said, "Return, my daughters. Why do you still want to go with me?* Are there sons in my womb* that may be husbands for you? 12 Turn back, my daughters! Go, for I am too old to have a husband.* If I should think there is hope for me, even if I should have a husband this night, and even if I should bear sons, 13 would you therefore wait until they were grown? Would you therefore refrain from marrying?* No, my daughters, for it is far more bitter to me than to you. For the hand of Yahweh has gone out against me." 14 And they lifted up their voices and cried again. And Orpah kissed her mother-in-law goodbye, but Ruth clung to her. 15 And she said, "Look, your sister-in-law has returned to her people and to her gods. Return after your sister-in-law too." 16 But Ruth said, "Do not urge* me to leave you or to return from following you!* For where you go, I will go, and where you lodge, I will lodge. Your people will be my people and your God will be my God. 17 Where you die I will die, and there I will be buried. So may Yahweh do to me, and even more, unless* death separates you and me!"* 18 When Naomi saw that she was determined to go with her, she said no more.* 19 So the two of them went until they came to Bethlehem. And when they came* to Bethlehem, all of the town was stirred because of them. And they said, "Is this Naomi?" 20 And she said to them, "You should not call me Naomi; call me Mara, for Shaddai* has caused me to be very bitter.* 21 I went away full, but Yahweh brought me back empty-handed! Why call me Naomi when Yahweh has testified against me* and Shaddai* has brought calamity upon me?" 22 So Naomi returned, and Ruth the Moabite her daughter-in-law with her, returning from the countryside of Moab. And they came to Bethlehem at the beginning of the harvest of barley.
MLV(i) 1 And it happened in the days when the judges judged, that there was a famine in the land. And a certain man of Bethlehem in Judah went to journey in the country of Moab, he and his wife and his two sons. 2 And the name of the man was Elimelech and the name of his wife Naomi and the name of his two sons Mahlon and Chilion, Ephrathites of Bethlehem in Judah. And they came into the country of Moab and continued there.
3 And Elimelech, Naomi's husband, died and she was left and her two sons. 4 And they took wives for them of the women of Moab. The name of the one was Orpah and the name of the other Ruth and they dwelt there about ten years. 5 And Mahlon and Chilion died, both of them and the woman was left of her two children and of her husband.
6 Then she arose with her daughters-in-law that she might return from the country of Moab, for she had heard in the country of Moab how that Jehovah had visited his people in giving them bread. 7 And she went forth out of the place where she was and her two daughters-in-law with her and they went on the way to return to the land of Judah.
8 And Naomi said to her two daughters-in-law, Go, return each of you* to her mother's house. Jehovah deal kindly with you*, as you* have dealt with the dead and with me. 9 Jehovah grant you* that you* may find rest, each of you* in the house of her husband. Then she kissed them and they lifted up their voices and wept. 10 And they said to her, No, but we will return with you to your people.
11 And Naomi said, Turn again, my daughters. Why will you* go with me? Have I yet sons in my womb, that they may be your* husbands? 12 Turn again, my daughters. Go your* way, for I am too old to have a husband. If I should say, I have hope. If I should even have a husband tonight and should also bear sons, 13 would you* therefore delay till they were grown? Would you* therefore stay from having husbands? No, my daughters, for it grieves me much for your* sakes, for the hand of Jehovah has gone forth against me.
14 And they lifted up their voices and wept again. And Orpah kissed her mother-in-law, but Ruth clung to her. 15 And she said, Behold, your sister-in-law has gone back to her people and to her god. Return after your sister-in-law.
16 And Ruth said, Entreat me not to leave you and to return from following after you, for where you go, I will go and where you lodge, I will lodge. Your people will be my people and your God my God. 17 Where you die, I will die and there I will be buried. Jehovah do so to me and more also, if anything but death parts you and me.
18 And when she saw that she was steadfastly minded to go with her, she left off speaking to her.
19 So those two went until they came to Bethlehem. And it happened, when they came to Bethlehem, that all the city was moved about them and the women said, Is this Naomi? 20 And she said to them, Call me not Naomi. Call me Mara, for the Almighty has dealt very bitterly with me. 21 I went out full and Jehovah has brought me home again empty. Why do you* call me Naomi, seeing Jehovah has testified against me and the Almighty has afflicted me?
22 So Naomi returned and Ruth the Moabitess, her daughter-in-law, with her, who returned out of the country of Moab. And they came to Bethlehem in the beginning of barley harvest.

VIN(i) 1 In the days when the judges judged, there was a famine in the land. A man of Bethlehem Judah went with his wife and two sons to live in the country of Moab. 2 And the man's name was Elimelech, and his wife's name was Naomi, and the names of his two sons were Mahlon and Chilion Ephrathites of Bethlehem, Judah. And they came to the land of Moab, and remained there. 3 And Elimelech, Naomi’s husband, died, and she was left with her two sons, 4 Each of her sons married Moabite women: one named Orpah and the other named Ruth. After they lived there about ten years, 5 And Mahlon and Chilion both died also; and the woman was left without her two sons and her husband. 6 Some time later Naomi heard that the LORD blessed his people by giving them good crops. So she got ready to leave Moab with her daughters-in-law. 7 So she goes with her two daughters in law from the place she was; and they go on the way to return to the land of Yah Hudah. 8 Naomi said to her two daughters-in-law, "Go, return each of you to her mother's house. May the LORD deal kindly with you, as you have dealt with the dead, and with me. 9 The Lord grant, that you may find rest, each in the house of her husband. So she kissed them, and they wept aloud, 10 and said to her, We will go back with thee to thy people. 11 But Naomi said, Go back, my daughters; why will you come with me? Have I more sons in my body, to become your husbands? 12 "Return home, my daughters. I am too old to get married again. Even if I thought there was still hope, and got married and had sons, 13 would you wait for them until they were grown? Would you refrain from marriage for them? No, my daughters! I'm more deeply grieved than you, because the LORD is working against me!" 14 They began to cry loudly again. So Orpah kissed her mother-in-law good-bye, but Ruth remained with her. 15 Naomi said to her: "Ruth, your sister-in-law went back to her people and her gods. Go back home with her. 16 Ruth said, “Don't urge me to leave you, and to return from following you, for where you go, I will go; and where you stay, I will stay. Your people will be my people, and your God my God. 17 Where you die, I will die, and there I will be buried. May the LORD do so to me, and more also, if anything but death parts you and me. 18 When Naomi saw that she was determined to go with her, she stopped urging her. 19 So the two of them went until they came to Bethlehem. And when they came to Bethlehem, all of the town was stirred because of them. And they said, "Is this Naomi?" 20 She said: "Do not call me Naomi (meaning pleasant). Call me Mara, because the Almighty has made my life bitter. 21 I went away full, but the LORD brought me back empty-handed! Why call me Naomi when the LORD has testified against me and Shaddai has brought calamity upon me?" 22 So Naomi came back out of the country of Moab, and Ruth the Moabitess, her daughter-in-law, with her; and they came to Beth-lehem in the first days of the grain-cutting.
Luther1545(i) 1 Zu der Zeit, da die Richter regierten, ward eine Teuerung im Lande. Und ein Mann von Bethlehem-Juda zog wallen in der Moabiter Land mit seinem Weibe und zween Söhnen. 2 Der hieß Elimelech und sein Weib Naemi, und seine zween Söhne Mahlon und Chiljon, die waren Ephrather, von Bethlehem-Juda. Und da sie kamen ins Land der Moabiter, blieben sie daselbst. 3 Und Elimelech, der Naemi Mann, starb, und sie blieb übrig mit ihren zween Söhnen. 4 Die nahmen moabitische Weiber. Eine hieß Arpa, die andere Ruth. Und da sie daselbst gewohnet hatten bei zehn Jahren, 5 starben sie alle beide, Mahlon und Chiljon, daß das Weib überblieb beiden Söhnen und ihrem Manne. 6 Da machte sie sich auf mit ihren zwo Schnüren und zog wieder aus der Moabiter Lande; denn sie hatte erfahren im Moabiter Lande, daß der HERR sein Volk hatte heimgesucht und ihnen Brot gegeben. 7 Und ging aus von dem Ort, da sie gewesen war, und ihre beiden Schnüre mit ihr. Und da sie ging auf dem Wege, daß sie wiederkäme ins Land Juda, 8 sprach sie zu ihren beiden Schnüren: Gehet hin und kehret um, eine jegliche zu ihrer Mutter Haus; der HERR tue an euch Barmherzigkeit, wie ihr an den Toten und an mir getan habt! 9 Der HERR gebe euch, daß ihr Ruhe findet, eine jegliche in ihres Mannes Hause! Und küssete sie. Da huben sie ihre Stimme auf und weineten. 10 Und sprachen zu ihr: Wir wollen mit dir zu deinem Volk gehen. 11 Aber Naemi sprach: Kehret um, meine Töchter; warum wollt ihr mit mir gehen? Wie kann ich fürder Kinder in meinem Leibe haben, die eure Männer sein möchten? 12 Kehret um, meine Töchter, und gehet hin; denn ich bin nun zu alt, daß ich einen Mann nehme. Und wenn ich spräche: Es ist zu hoffen, daß ich diese Nacht einen Mann nehme und Kinder gebäre, 13 wie könnet ihr doch harren, bis sie groß würden? Wie wollt ihr verziehen, daß ihr nicht Männer solltet nehmen? Nicht, meine Töchter; denn mich jammert euer sehr, denn des HERRN Hand ist über mich ausgegangen. 14 Da huben sie ihre Stimme auf und weineten noch mehr. Und Arpa küssete ihre Schwieger; Ruth aber blieb bei ihr. 15 Sie aber sprach: Siehe, deine Schwägerin ist umgewandt zu ihrem Volk und zu ihrem Gott; kehre du auch um, deiner Schwägerin nach. 16 Ruth antwortete: Rede mir nicht darein, daß ich dich verlassen sollte und von dir umkehren. Wo du hingehest, da will ich auch hingehen; wo du bleibest, da bleibe ich auch. Dein Volk ist mein Volk und dein Gott ist mein Gott. 17 Wo du stirbst, da sterbe ich auch; da will ich auch begraben werden. Der HERR tue mir dies und das: der Tod muß mich und dich scheiden. 18 Als sie nun sah, daß sie fest im Sinne war, mit ihr zu gehen, ließ sie ab, mit ihr davon zu reden. 19 Also gingen die beiden miteinander bis sie gen Bethlehem kamen. Und da sie zu Bethlehem einkamen, regte sich die ganze Stadt über ihnen und sprach: Ist das die Naemi? 20 Sie aber sprach zu ihnen: Heißet mich nicht Naemi, sondern Mara; denn der Allmächtige hat mich sehr betrübet. 21 Voll zog ich aus, aber leer hat mich der HERR wieder heimgebracht. Warum heißet ihr mich denn Naemi, so mich doch der HERR gedemütiget und der Allmächtige betrübet hat? 22 Es war aber um die Zeit, daß die Gerstenernte anging, da Naemi und ihre Schnur Ruth, die Moabitin, wiederkamen vom Moabiter Lande gen Bethlehem.

  1 H3117 Zu der Zeit H8199 , da die Richter H7458 regierten, ward eine Teuerung H7704 im Lande H376 . Und ein Mann H3063 von Bethlehem-Juda H3212 zog H1481 wallen H4124 in der Moabiter H776 Land H802 mit seinem Weibe H1121 und zween Söhnen .
  2 H8034 Der hieß H458 Elimelech H376 und H802 sein Weib H8147 Naemi, und seine H1121 zween Söhne H4248 Mahlon H3630 und Chiljon H8034 , die H935 waren H673 Ephrather H3063 , von Bethlehem-Juda H5281 . Und da sie H7704 kamen ins Land H4124 der Moabiter H8034 , blieben sie daselbst.
  3 H458 Und Elimelech H376 , der Naemi Mann H4191 , starb H5281 , und sie H7604 blieb übrig H1121 mit ihren zween Söhnen .
  4 H8034 Die H4125 nahmen moabitische H802 Weiber H259 . Eine H8034 hieß H3427 Arpa, die H8145 andere H7327 Ruth H802 . Und da sie H5375 daselbst gewohnet hatten H6235 bei zehn H8141 Jahren,
  5 H4191 starben H8147 sie H8147 alle beide H4248 , Mahlon H3630 und Chiljon H802 , daß das Weib H376 überblieb beiden Söhnen und ihrem Manne .
  6 H6965 Da machte sie sich auf H7725 mit ihren zwo Schnüren und zog wieder H4124 aus der Moabiter H7704 Lande H8085 ; denn sie hatte erfahren H4124 im Moabiter H7704 Lande H3068 , daß der HErr H5971 sein Volk H6485 hatte heimgesucht H3899 und ihnen Brot H5414 gegeben .
  7 H3212 Und ging H3318 aus H4725 von dem Ort H8147 , da sie H1870 gewesen war, und ihre beiden Schnüre mit ihr. Und da sie ging auf dem Wege H7725 , daß sie wiederkäme H776 ins Land H3063 Juda,
  8 H559 sprach H5281 sie H3212 zu ihren beiden Schnüren: Gehet hin H7725 und kehret um H517 , eine jegliche zu ihrer Mutter H1004 Haus H3068 ; der HErr H6213 tue H2617 an euch Barmherzigkeit H802 , wie ihr H4191 an den Toten H8147 und an mir H6213 getan habt!
  9 H3068 Der HErr H5414 gebe H4496 euch, daß ihr Ruhe H4672 findet H376 , eine jegliche H1004 in ihres Mannes Hause H802 ! Und küssete sie H5401 . Da huben sie H6963 ihre Stimme H5375 auf und weineten.
  10 H559 Und sprachen H5971 zu ihr: Wir wollen mit dir zu deinem Volk H7725 gehen .
  11 H5281 Aber Naemi H559 sprach H7725 : Kehret um H1323 , meine Töchter H3212 ; warum wollt ihr mit mir gehen H1121 ? Wie kann ich fürder Kinder H4578 in meinem Leibe H582 haben, die eure Männer sein möchten?
  12 H7725 Kehret um H1323 , meine Töchter H3212 , und gehet hin H559 ; denn ich H2204 bin nun zu alt H376 , daß ich einen Mann H3426 nehme. Und wenn ich spräche: Es ist H8615 zu hoffen H3915 , daß ich diese Nacht H376 einen Mann H1121 nehme und Kinder H3205 gebäre,

  14 H1058 Da huben sie H6963 ihre Stimme H5375 auf H7327 und weineten noch mehr. Und Arpa küssete ihre Schwieger; Ruth H1692 aber blieb bei ihr .
  15 H559 Sie aber sprach H2994 : Siehe, deine Schwägerin H7725 ist umgewandt H5971 zu ihrem Volk H430 und zu ihrem GOtt H7725 ; kehre du auch um H2994 , deiner Schwägerin H310 nach .
  16 H7327 Ruth H559 antwortete H6293 : Rede H3212 mir nicht darein, daß ich dich H5800 verlassen H310 sollte und von dir umkehren. Wo du hingehest, da H7725 will H3212 ich auch hingehen H5971 ; wo du bleibest, da bleibe ich auch. Dein Volk H5971 ist mein Volk H430 und dein GOtt H430 ist mein GOtt .
  17 H4191 Wo du stirbst, da sterbe H6912 ich auch; da will ich auch begraben werden H3068 . Der HErr H6213 tue H3254 mir dies und das H4191 : der Tod H6504 muß mich und dich scheiden .
  18 H7200 Als sie nun sah H553 , daß sie fest im Sinne war H3212 , mit ihr zu gehen H2308 , ließ sie ab H1696 , mit ihr davon zu reden .
  19 H3212 Also gingen H5281 die beiden miteinander bis sie H1035 gen Bethlehem H935 kamen H1035 . Und da sie zu Bethlehem H5892 einkamen, regte sich die ganze Stadt H8147 über ihnen H559 und sprach H935 : Ist das die Naemi?
  20 H7121 Sie H559 aber sprach H5281 zu ihnen: Heißet mich nicht Naemi H4755 , sondern Mara H7706 ; denn der Allmächtige H7121 hat H3966 mich sehr betrübet.

ELB1871(i) 1 Und es geschah in den Tagen, als die Richter richteten, da entstand eine Hungersnot im Lande. Und ein Mann von Bethlehem-Juda zog hin, um sich in den Gefilden Moabs aufzuhalten, er und sein Weib und seine beiden Söhne. 2 Und der Name des Mannes war Elimelech, und der Name seines Weibes Noomi, und die Namen seiner beiden Söhne Machlon und Kiljon, Ephratiter von Bethlehem-Juda. Und sie kamen in die Gefilde Moabs und blieben daselbst. 3 Und Elimelech, der Mann Noomis, starb: und sie blieb mit ihren beiden Söhnen übrig. 4 Und sie nahmen sich moabitische Weiber: der Name der einen war Orpa, und der Name der anderen Ruth; und sie wohnten daselbst bei zehn Jahren. 5 Da starben auch die beiden, Machlon und Kiljon; und das Weib blieb allein übrig von ihren beiden Söhnen und von ihrem Manne. 6 Und sie machte sich auf, sie und ihre Schwiegertöchter, und kehrte aus den Gefilden Moabs zurück; denn sie hatte im Gefilde Moabs gehört, daß Jehova sein Volk heimgesucht habe, um ihnen Brot zu geben. 7 Und sie zog aus von dem Orte, wo sie gewesen war, und ihre beiden Schwiegertöchter mit ihr; und sie zogen des Weges, um in das Land Juda zurückzukehren. 8 Da sprach Noomi zu ihren beiden Schwiegertöchtern: Gehet, kehret um, eine jede zum Hause ihrer Mutter. Jehova erweise Güte an euch, so wie ihr sie an den Verstorbenen und an mir erwiesen habt. 9 Jehova gebe euch, daß ihr Ruhe findet, eine jede in dem Hause ihres Mannes! Und sie küßte sie. Und sie erhoben ihre Stimme und weinten; 10 und sie sprachen zu ihr: Doch, wir wollen mit dir zu deinem Volke zurückkehren! 11 Und Noomi sprach: Kehret um, meine Töchter! Warum wolltet ihr mit mir gehen? Habe ich noch Söhne in meinem Leibe, daß sie euch zu Männern werden könnten? 12 Kehret um, meine Töchter, gehet; denn ich bin zu alt, um eines Mannes zu werden. Wenn ich spräche: Ich habe Hoffnung; wenn ich selbst diese Nacht eines Mannes würde und sogar Söhne gebären sollte: 13 wolltet ihr deshalb warten, bis sie groß würden? wolltet ihr deshalb euch abschließen, daß ihr keines Mannes würdet? Nicht doch, meine Töchter! denn mir ergeht es viel bitterer als euch; denn die Hand Jehovas ist wider mich ausgegangen. 14 Da erhoben sie ihre Stimme und weinten wiederum. Und Orpa küßte ihre Schwiegermutter; Ruth aber hing ihr an. 15 Und sie sprach: Siehe, deine Schwägerin ist zu ihrem Volke und zu ihren Göttern zurückgekehrt; kehre um, deiner Schwägerin nach! 16 Aber Ruth sprach: Dringe nicht in mich, dich zu verlassen, hinter dir weg umzukehren; denn wohin du gehst, will ich gehen, und wo du weilst, will ich weilen; dein Volk ist mein Volk, und dein Gott ist mein Gott; 17 wo du stirbst, will ich sterben, und daselbst will ich begraben werden. So soll mir Jehova tun und so hinzufügen, nur der Tod soll scheiden zwischen mir und dir! 18 Und als sie sah, daß sie fest darauf bestand, mit ihr zu gehen, da ließ sie ab, ihr zuzureden. 19 Und so gingen beide, bis sie nach Bethlehem kamen. Und es geschah, als sie nach Bethlehem kamen, da geriet die ganze Stadt ihretwegen in Bewegung, und sie sprachen: Ist das Noomi? 20 Und sie sprach zu ihnen: Nennet mich nicht Noomi, nennet mich Mara; denn der Allmächtige hat es mir sehr bitter gemacht. 21 Voll bin ich gegangen, und leer hat mich Jehova zurückkehren lassen. Warum nennet ihr mich Noomi, da Jehova gegen mich gezeugt, und der Allmächtige mir Übles getan hat? 22 Und so kehrte Noomi zurück, und Ruth, die Moabitin, ihre Schwiegertochter, mit ihr, welche aus den Gefilden Moabs zurückkehrte; und sie kamen nach Bethlehem beim Beginn der Gerstenernte.
ELB1905(i) 1 Und es geschah in den Tagen, als die Richter richteten, da entstand eine Hungersnot im Lande. Und ein Mann von Bethlehem-Juda zog hin, um sich in den Gefilden Moabs aufzuhalten, er und sein Weib und seine beiden Söhne. 2 Und der Name des Mannes war Elimelech, und der Name seines Weibes Noomi, und die Namen seiner beiden Söhne Machlon und Kiljon, Ephratiter von Bethlehem-Juda. Und sie kamen in die Gefilde Moabs und blieben daselbst. 3 Und Elimelech, der Mann Noomis, starb: und sie blieb mit ihren beiden Söhnen übrig. 4 Und sie nahmen sich moabitische Weiber: der Name der einen war Orpa, und der Name der anderen Ruth; und sie wohnten daselbst bei zehn Jahren. 5 Da starben auch die beiden, Machlon und Kiljon; und das Weib blieb allein übrig von ihren beiden Söhnen und von ihrem Manne. 6 Und sie machte sich auf, sie und ihre Schwiegertöchter, und kehrte aus den Gefilden Moabs zurück; denn sie hatte im Gefilde Moabs gehört, daß Jahwe sein Volk heimgesucht habe, um ihnen Brot zu geben. O. indem er ihnen Brot gab 7 Und sie zog aus von dem Orte, wo sie gewesen war, und ihre beiden Schwiegertöchter mit ihr; und sie zogen des Weges, um in das Land Juda zurückzukehren. 8 Da sprach Noomi zu ihren beiden Schwiegertöchtern: Gehet, kehret um, eine jede zum Hause ihrer Mutter. Jahwe erweise Güte an euch, so wie ihr sie an den Verstorbenen und an mir erwiesen habt. 9 Jahwe gebe euch, daß ihr Ruhe findet, eine jede in dem Hause ihres Mannes! Und sie küßte sie. Und sie erhoben ihre Stimme und weinten; 10 und sie sprachen zu ihr: Doch, wir wollen mit dir zu deinem Volke zurückkehren! 11 Und Noomi sprach: Kehret um, meine Töchter! Warum wolltet ihr mit mir gehen? Habe ich noch Söhne in meinem Leibe, daß sie euch zu Männern werden könnten? 12 Kehret um, meine Töchter, gehet; denn ich bin zu alt, um eines Mannes zu werden. Wenn ich spräche: Ich habe Hoffnung; wenn ich selbst diese Nacht eines Mannes würde und sogar Söhne gebären sollte: 13 wolltet ihr deshalb warten, bis sie groß würden? Wolltet ihr deshalb euch abschließen, daß ihr keines Mannes würdet? Nicht doch, meine Töchter! Denn mir ergeht es viel bitterer als euch; denn die Hand Jahwes ist wider mich ausgegangen. 14 Da erhoben sie ihre Stimme und weinten wiederum. Und Orpa küßte ihre Schwiegermutter; Ruth aber hing ihr an. 15 Und sie sprach: Siehe, deine Schwägerin ist zu ihrem Volke und zu ihren Göttern zurückgekehrt; kehre um, deiner Schwägerin nach! 16 Aber Ruth sprach: Dringe nicht in mich, dich zu verlassen, hinter dir weg umzukehren; denn wohin du gehst, will ich gehen, und wo du weilst, will ich weilen; dein Volk ist mein Volk, und dein Gott ist mein Gott; 17 wo du stirbst, will ich sterben, und daselbst will ich begraben werden. So soll mir Jahwe tun und so hinzufügen, nur der Tod soll scheiden zwischen mir und dir! 18 Und als sie sah, daß sie fest darauf bestand, mit ihr zu gehen, da ließ sie ab, ihr zuzureden. 19 Und so gingen beide, bis sie nach Bethlehem kamen. Und es geschah, als sie nach Bethlehem kamen, da geriet die ganze Stadt ihretwegen in Bewegung, und sie dh. die Weiber der Stadt sprachen: Ist das Noomi? 20 Und sie sprach zu ihnen: Nennet mich nicht Noomi, Huldvolle, Liebliche nennet mich Mara; Bittere, Betrübte denn der Allmächtige hat es mir sehr bitter gemacht. 21 Voll bin ich gegangen, und leer hat mich Jahwe zurückkehren lassen. Warum nennet ihr mich Noomi, da Jahwe gegen mich gezeugt, und der Allmächtige mir Übles getan hat? 22 Und so kehrte Noomi zurück, und Ruth, die Moabitin, ihre Schwiegertochter, mit ihr, welche aus den Gefilden Moabs zurückkehrte; und sie kamen nach Bethlehem beim Beginn der Gerstenernte.
