Unchecked Copy BoxRth 1:1 - 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.

Unchecked Copy BoxRth 1:2 - 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.

Unchecked Copy BoxRth 1:3 - And Elimelech Naomi's husband died; and she was left, and her two sons.

Unchecked Copy BoxRth 1:4 - 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.

Unchecked Copy BoxRth 1:5 - And Mahlon and Chilion died also both of them; and the woman was left by her two sons and her husband.

Unchecked Copy BoxRth 1:6 - 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.

Unchecked Copy BoxRth 1:10 - And they said to her, surely we will return with thee to thy people.

Unchecked Copy BoxRth 1:11 - And Naomi said, Turn again, my daughters: why will ye go with me? shall I bear more sons, that they may be your husbands?

Unchecked Copy BoxRth 1:12 - 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;

Unchecked Copy BoxRth 1:13 - 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.

Unchecked Copy BoxRth 1:14 - And they lifted up their voice, and wept again. And Orpah kissed her mother-in-law; but Ruth cleaved to her.

Unchecked Copy BoxRth 1:15 - 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.

Unchecked Copy BoxRth 1:16 - 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:

Unchecked Copy BoxRth 1:17 - 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.

Unchecked Copy BoxRth 1:18 - When she saw that she was steadfastly resolved to go with her, then she left speaking to her.

Unchecked Copy BoxRth 1:19 - 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?

Unchecked Copy BoxRth 1:20 - And she said to them, Call me not Naomi, call me Mara: for the Almighty hath dealt very bitterly with me.

Unchecked Copy BoxRth 1:21 - 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?

Unchecked Copy BoxRth 1:22 - 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.
