Naomi and Ruth Arrive in Bethlehem

When they entered 3  Bethlehem, 4  the whole village was excited about their arrival. 5  The women of the village said, 6 Can this be Naomi?” 7  1:20 But she replied 8  to them, 9  “Don’t call me ‘Naomi! 10  Call me ‘Mara 11  because the Sovereign One 12  has treated me very harshly. 13  1:21 I left here full, 14  but the Lord has caused me to return empty-handed. 15  Why do you call me ‘Naomi,’ seeing that 16  the Lord has opposed me, 17  and the Sovereign One 18  has caused me to suffer?” 19
