||Revised Standard Version
||Καὶ ἐγένετο ἐν τῷ κρίνειν τοὺς κριτὰς καὶ ἐγένετο λιμὸς ἐν τῇ γῇ, καὶ ἐπορεύθη ἀνὴρ ἀπὸ Βαιθλεεμ τῆς Ιουδα τοῦ παροικῆσαι ἐν ἀγρῷ Μωαβ, αὐτὸς καὶ ἡ γυνὴ αὐτοῦ καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ αὐτοῦ.
||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.
||RUTH. Elimelech moves to Moab. Ru.1.1-5
||In the days when the judges ruled there was a famine in the land, and a certain man of Bethlehem in Judah went to sojourn in the country of Moab, he and his wife and his two sons.||וַיְהִי בִּימֵי שְׁפֹט הַשֹּׁפְטִים וַיְהִי רָעָב בָּאָרֶץ וַיֵּלֶךְ אִישׁ מִבֵּית לֶחֶם יְהוּדָה לָגוּר בִּשְׂדֵי מֹואָב הוּא וְאִשְׁתֹּו וּשְׁנֵי בָנָיו׃
||καὶ ὄνομα τῷ ἀνδρὶ Αβιμελεχ, καὶ ὄνομα τῇ γυναικὶ αὐτοῦ Νωεμιν, καὶ ὄνομα τοῖς δυσὶν υἱοῖς αὐτοῦ Μααλων καὶ Χελαιων, Εφραθαῖοι ἐκ Βαιθλεεμ τῆς Ιουδα· καὶ ἤλθοσαν εἰς ἀγρὸν Μωαβ καὶ ἦσαν ἐκεῖ.
||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.
||The name of the man was Elim'elech and the name of his wife Na'omi, and the names of his two sons were Mahlon and Chil'ion; they were Eph'rathites from Bethlehem in Judah. They went into the country of Moab and remained there.||וְשֵׁם הָאִישׁ אֱלִימֶלֶךְ וְשֵׁם אִשְׁתֹּו נָעֳמִי וְשֵׁם שְׁנֵי־בָנָיו מַחְלֹון וְכִלְיֹון אֶפְרָתִים מִבֵּית לֶחֶם יְהוּדָה וַיָּבֹאוּ שְׂדֵי־מֹואָב וַיִּהְיוּ־שָׁם׃
||καὶ ἀπέθανεν Αβιμελεχ ὁ ἀνὴρ τῆς Νωεμιν, καὶ κατελείφθη αὐτὴ καὶ οἱ δύο υἱοὶ αὐτῆς.
||And Elimelech the husband of Noemin died; and she was left and her two sons.
||But Elim'elech, the husband of Na'omi, died, and she was left with her two sons.||וַיָּמָת אֱלִימֶלֶךְ אִישׁ נָעֳמִי וַתִּשָּׁאֵר הִיא וּשְׁנֵי בָנֶיהָ׃
||καὶ ἐλάβοσαν ἑαυτοῖς γυναῖκας Μωαβίτιδας, ὄνομα τῇ μιᾷ Ορφα, καὶ ὄνομα τῇ δευτέρᾳ Ρουθ· καὶ κατῴκησαν ἐκεῖ ὡς δέκα ἔτη.
||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.
||These took Moabite wives; the name of the one was Orpah and the name of the other Ruth. They lived there about ten years;||וַיִּשְׂאוּ לָהֶם נָשִׁים מֹאֲבִיֹּות שֵׁם הָאַחַת עָרְפָּה וְשֵׁם הַשֵּׁנִית רוּת וַיֵּשְׁבוּ שָׁם כְּעֶשֶׂר שָׁנִים׃
||καὶ ἀπέθανον καί γε ἀμφότεροι, Μααλων καὶ Χελαιων, καὶ κατελείφθη ἡ γυνὴ ἀπὸ τοῦ ἀνδρὸς αὐτῆς καὶ ἀπὸ τῶν δύο υἱῶν αὐτῆς.
||And both Maalon and Chelaion died also; and the woman was left of her husband and her two sons.
||and both Mahlon and Chil'ion died, so that the woman was bereft of her two sons and her husband.||וַיָּמוּתוּ גַם־שְׁנֵיהֶם מַחְלֹון וְכִלְיֹון וַתִּשָּׁאֵר הָאִשָּׁה מִשְּׁנֵי יְלָדֶיהָ וּמֵאִישָׁהּ׃
||καὶ ἀνέστη αὐτὴ καὶ αἱ δύο νύμφαι αὐτῆς καὶ ἀπέστρεψαν ἐξ ἀγροῦ Μωαβ, ὅτι ἤκουσαν ἐν ἀγρῷ Μωαβ ὅτι ἐπέσκεπται κύριος τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ δοῦναι αὐτοῖς ἄρτους.
||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.
||Naomi & Ruth return to Bethlehem. Ru.1.6-22
||Then she started with her daughters-in-law to return from the country of Moab, for she had heard in the country of Moab that the LORD had visited his people and given them food.||וַתָּקָם הִיא וְכַלֹּתֶיהָ וַתָּשָׁב מִשְּׂדֵי מֹואָב כִּי שָׁמְעָה בִּשְׂדֵה מֹואָב כִּי־פָקַד יְהוָה אֶת־עַמֹּו לָתֵת לָהֶם לָחֶם׃
||καὶ ἐξῆλθεν ἐκ τοῦ τόπου, οὗ ἦν ἐκεῖ, καὶ αἱ δύο νύμφαι αὐτῆς μετ' αὐτῆς· καὶ ἐπορεύοντο ἐν τῇ ὁδῷ τοῦ ἐπιστρέψαι εἰς τὴν γῆν Ιουδα.
||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.
||So she set out from the place where she was, with her two daughters-in-law, and they went on the way to return to the land of Judah.||וַתֵּצֵא מִן־הַמָּקֹום אֲשֶׁר הָיְתָה־שָׁמָּה וּשְׁתֵּי כַלֹּתֶיהָ עִמָּהּ וַתֵּלַכְנָה בַדֶּרֶךְ לָשׁוּב אֶל־אֶרֶץ יְהוּדָה׃
||καὶ εἶπεν Νωεμιν ταῖς νύμφαις αὐτῆς Πορεύεσθε δὴ ἀποστράφητε ἑκάστη εἰς οἶκον μητρὸς αὐτῆς· ποιήσαι κύριος μεθ' ὑμῶν ἔλεος, καθὼς ἐποιήσατε μετὰ τῶν τεθνηκότων καὶ μετ' ἐμοῦ·
||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.
||But Na'omi 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.||וַתֹּאמֶר נָעֳמִי לִשְׁתֵּי כַלֹּתֶיהָ לֵכְנָה שֹּׁבְנָה אִשָּׁה לְבֵית אִמָּהּ [כ= יַעֲשֶׂה] [ק= יַעַשׂ] יְהוָה עִםָּכֶם חֶסֶד כַּאֲשֶׁר עֲשִׂיתֶם עִם־הַמֵּתִים וְעִמָּדִי׃
||δῴη κύριος ὑμῖν καὶ εὕροιτε ἀνάπαυσιν ἑκάστη ἐν οἴκῳ ἀνδρὸς αὐτῆς. καὶ κατεφίλησεν αὐτάς, καὶ ἐπῆραν τὴν φωνὴν αὐτῶν καὶ ἔκλαυσαν.
||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.
||The LORD grant that you may find a home, each of you in the house of her husband!" Then she kissed them, and they lifted up their voices and wept.||יִתֵּן יְהוָה לָכֶם וּמְצֶאןָ מְנוּחָה אִשָּׁה בֵּית אִישָׁהּ וַתִּשַּׁק לָהֶן וַתִּשֶּׂאנָה קֹולָן וַתִּבְכֶּינָה׃
||καὶ εἶπαν αὐτῇ Μετὰ σοῦ ἐπιστρέφομεν εἰς τὸν λαόν σου.
||And they said to her We will return with thee to thy people.
||And they said to her, "No, we will return with you to your people."||וַתֹּאמַרְנָה־לָּהּ כִּי־אִתָּךְ נָשׁוּב לְעַמֵּךְ׃
||καὶ εἶπεν Νωεμιν Ἑπιστράφητε δή, θυγατέρες μου· καὶ ἵνα τί πορεύεσθε μετ' ἐμοῦ; μὴ ἔτι μοι υἱοὶ ἐν τῇ κοιλίᾳ μου καὶ ἔσονται ὑμῖν εἰς ἄνδρας;
||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?
||But Na'omi said, "Turn back, my daughters, why will you go with me? Have I yet sons in my womb that they may become your husbands?||וַתֹּאמֶר נָעֳמִי שֹׁבְנָה בְנֹתַי לָמָּה תֵלַכְנָה עִמִּי הַעֹוד־לִי בָנִים בְּמֵעַי וְהָיוּ לָכֶם לַאֲנָשִׁים׃
||ἐπιστράφητε δή, θυγατέρες μου, διότι γεγήρακα τοῦ μὴ εἶναι ἀνδρί· ὅτι εἶπα ὅτι ἔστιν μοι ὑπόστασις τοῦ γενηθῆναί με ἀνδρὶ καὶ τέξομαι υἱούς,
||Turn now my daughters for I am too old to be married: for I said Suppose I were married and should bear sons;
||Turn back, my daughters, go your way, for I am too old to have a husband. If I should say I have hope, even if I should have a husband this night and should bear sons,||שֹׁבְנָה בְנֹתַי לֵכְןָ כִּי זָקַנְתִּי מִהְיֹות לְאִישׁ כִּי אָמַרְתִּי יֶשׁ־לִי תִקְוָה גַּם הָיִיתִי הַלַּיְלָה לְאִישׁ וְגַם יָלַדְתִּי בָנִים׃
||μὴ αὐτοὺς προσδέξεσθε ἕως οὗ ἁδρυνθῶσιν; ἢ αὐτοῖς κατασχεθήσεσθε τοῦ μὴ γενέσθαι ἀνδρί; μὴ δή, θυγατέρες μου, ὅτι ἐπικράνθη μοι ὑπὲρ ὑμᾶς ὅτι ἐξῆλθεν ἐν ἐμοὶ χεὶρ κυρίου.
||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.
||would you therefore wait till they were grown? Would you therefore refrain from marrying? No, my daughters, for it is exceedingly bitter to me for your sake that the hand of the LORD has gone forth against me."||הֲלָהֵן תְּשַׂבֵּרְנָה עַד אֲשֶׁר יִגְדָּלוּ הֲלָהֵן תֵּעָגֵנָה לְבִלְתִּי הֱיֹות לְאִישׁ אַל בְּנֹתַי כִּי־מַר־לִי מְאֹד םִכֶּם כִּי־יָצְאָה בִי יַד־יְהוָה׃
||καὶ ἐπῆραν τὴν φωνὴν αὐτῶν καὶ ἔκλαυσαν ἔτι· καὶ κατεφίλησεν Ορφα τὴν πενθερὰν αὐτῆς καὶ ἐπέστρεψεν εἰς τὸν λαὸν αὐτῆς, Ρουθ δὲ ἠκολούθησεν αὐτῇ.
||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.
||Then they lifted up their voices and wept again; and Orpah kissed her mother-in-law, but Ruth clung to her.||וַתִּשֶּׂנָה קֹולָן וַתִּבְכֶּינָה עֹוד וַתִּשַּׁק עָרְפָּה לַחֲמֹותָהּ וְרוּת דָּבְקָה בָּהּ׃
||καὶ εἶπεν Νωεμιν πρὸς Ρουθ Ἰδοὺ ἀνέστρεψεν ἡ σύννυμφός σου πρὸς λαὸν αὐτῆς καὶ πρὸς τοὺς θεοὺς αὐτῆς· ἐπιστράφητι δὴ καὶ σὺ ὀπίσω τῆς συννύμφου σου.
||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.
||And she said, "See, your sister-in-law has gone back to her people and to her gods; return after your sister-in-law."||וַתֹּאמֶר הִנֵּה שָׁבָה יְבִמְתֵּךְ אֶל־עַמָּהּ וְאֶל־אֱלֹהֶיהָ שׁוּבִי אַחֲרֵי יְבִמְתֵּךְ׃
||εἶπεν δὲ Ρουθ Μὴ ἀπαντήσαι ἐμοὶ 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·
||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
||But Ruth said, "Entreat me not 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 shall be my people, and your God my God;||וַתֹּאמֶר רוּת אַל־תִּפְגְּעִי־בִי לְעָזְבֵךְ לָשׁוּב מֵאַחֲרָיִךְ כִּי אֶל־אֲשֶׁר תֵּלְכִי אֵלֵךְ וּבַאֲשֶׁר תָּלִינִי אָלִין עַמֵּךְ עַמִּי וֵאלֹהַיִךְ אֱלֹהָי׃
||καὶ οὗ ἐὰν ἀποθάνῃς, ἀποθανοῦμαι κἀκεῖ ταφήσομαι· τάδε ποιήσαι μοι κύριος καὶ τάδε προσθείη, ὅτι θάνατος διαστελεῖ ἀνὰ μέσον ἐμοῦ καὶ σοῦ.
||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]
||where you die I will die, and there will I be buried. May the LORD do so to me and more also if even death parts me from you."||בַּאֲשֶׁר תָּמוּתִי אָמוּת וְשָׁם אֶקָּבֵר כֹּה יַעֲשֶׂה יְהוָה לִי וְכֹה יֹסִיף כִּי הַמָּוֶת יַפְרִיד בֵּינִי וּבֵינֵךְ׃
||ἰδοῦσα δὲ Νωεμιν ὅτι κραταιοῦται αὐτὴ τοῦ πορεύεσθαι μετ' αὐτῆς, ἐκόπασεν τοῦ λαλῆσαι πρὸς αὐτὴν ἔτι.
||And Noemin seeing that she was determined to go with her ceased to speak to her any more.
||And when Na'omi saw that she was determined to go with her, she said no more.||וַתֵּרֶא כִּי־מִתְאַמֶּצֶת הִיא לָלֶכֶת אִתָּהּ וַתֶּחְדַּל לְדַבֵּר אֵלֶיהָ׃
||ἐπορεύθησαν δὲ ἀμφότεραι ἕως τοῦ παραγενέσθαι αὐτὰς εἰς Βαιθλεεμ. καὶ ἤχησεν πᾶσα ἡ πόλις ἐπ' αὐταῖς καὶ εἶπον Αὕτη ἐστὶν Νωεμιν;
||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?
||So the two of them went on until they came to Bethlehem. And when they came to Bethlehem, the whole town was stirred because of them; and the women said, "Is this Na'omi?"||וַתֵּלַכְנָה שְׁתֵּיהֶם עַד־בֹּאָנָה בֵּית לָחֶם וַיְהִי כְּבֹאָנָה בֵּית לֶחֶם וַתֵּהֹם כָּל־הָעִיר עֲלֵיהֶן וַתֹּאמַרְנָה הֲזֹאת נָעֳמִי׃
||καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτάς Μὴ δὴ καλεῖτέ με Νωεμιν, καλέσατέ με Πικράν, ὅτι ἐπικράνθη ἐν ἐμοὶ ὁ ἱκανὸς σφόδρα·
||And she said to them Nay do not call me Noemin; call me 'Bitter ' for the Mighty One has dealt very bitterly with me.
||She said to them, "Do not call me Na'omi, call me Mara, for the Almighty has dealt very bitterly with me.||וַתֹּאמֶר אֲלֵיהֶן אַל־תִּקְרֶאנָה לִי נָעֳמִי קְרֶאןָ לִי מָרָא כִּי־הֵמַר שַׁדַּי לִי מְאֹד׃
||ἐγὼ πλήρης ἐπορεύθην, καὶ κενὴν ἀπέστρεψέν με ὁ κύριος· καὶ ἵνα τί καλεῖτέ με Νωεμιν; καὶ κύριος ἐταπείνωσέν με, καὶ ὁ ἱκανὸς ἐκάκωσέν με.
||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?
||I went away full, and the LORD has brought me back empty. Why call me Na'omi, when the LORD has afflicted me and the Almighty has brought calamity upon me?"||אֲנִי מְלֵאָה הָלַכְתִּי וְרֵיקָם הֱשִׁיבַנִי יְהוָה לָמָּה תִקְרֶאנָה לִי נָעֳמִי וַיהוָה עָנָה בִי וְשַׁדַּי הֵרַע לִי׃
||καὶ ἐπέστρεψεν Νωεμιν καὶ Ρουθ ἡ Μωαβῖτις ἡ νύμφη αὐτῆς ἐπιστρέφουσα ἐξ ἀγροῦ Μωαβ· αὐταὶ δὲ παρεγενήθησαν εἰς Βαιθλεεμ ἐν ἀρχῇ θερισμοῦ κριθῶν.
||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.
||So Na'omi returned, and Ruth the Moabitess her daughter-in-law with her, who returned from the country of Moab. And they came to Bethlehem at the beginning of barley harvest.||וַתָּשָׁב נָעֳמִי וְרוּת הַמֹּואֲבִיָּה כַלָּתָהּ עִמָּהּ הַשָּׁבָה מִשְּׂדֵי מֹואָב וְהֵמָּה בָּאוּ בֵּית לֶחֶם בִּתְחִלַּת קְצִיר שְׂעֹרִים׃
