(this is a scan from the exact, authentic, original 1611 'HE' King James Bible)

1 Nowe it came to passe in the dayes when þe Iudges ruled, that there was a famine in the land: and a certaine man of Bethlehem Iudah, went 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 name of his two sonnes, Mahlon, and Chilion, Ephrathites of Bethlehem Iudah: and they came into the countrey of Moab, and continued there.

3 And Elimelech Naomies husband died, and shee was left, and her two sonnes;

4 And they tooke them wiues 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 yeeres.

5 And Mahlon and Chilion died also both of them, and the woman was left of her two sonnes, and her husband.

6 Then shee arose with her daughters in law, that shee might returne from the countrey of Moab: for shee had heard in the countrey of Moab, how that the Lord had visited his people, in giuing them bread.

7 Wherefore she went foorth out of the place where she was, and her two daughters in law with her: and they went on the way to returne vnto the land of Iudah.

8 Aud Naomi said vnto her two daughters in law, Goe, returne each to her mothers house: the Lord deale kindly with you, as ye haue dealt with the dead, and with me.

9 The Lord graunt you, that you may finde rest each of you in the house of her husband. Then she kissed them, and they lift vp their voyce and wept.

10 And they said vnto her, Surely wee will returne with thee, vnto thy people.

11 And Naomi said, Turne againe, my daughters: why will you goe with mee? Are there yet any moe sonnes in my wombe, that they may be your husbands?

12 Turne againe, my daughters, go your way, for I am too old to haue an husband: if I should say, I haue hope, if I should haue a husband also to night, and should also beare sonnes:

13 Would ye tary for them till they were growen? would ye stay for them from hauing husbands? nay my daughters: for it grieueth me much for your sakes, that the hand of the Lord is gone out against me.

14 And they lift vp their voyce, and wept againe: and Orpah kissed her mother in law, but Ruth claue vnto her.

15 And she said, Behold, thy sister in law is gone backe vnto her people, and vnto her gods: returne thou after thy sister in law.

16 And Ruth said, Intreate mee not to leaue thee, or to returne from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will goe; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God:

17 Where thou diest, wil I die, and there will I bee buried: the Lord doe so to me, and more also, if ought but death part thee and me.

18 When shee sawe that shee was stedfastly minded to goe with her, then shee left speaking vnto her.

19 So they two went vntill they came to Bethlehem: And it came to passe when they were come to Bethlehem, that all the citie was mooued about them, and they said, Is this Naomi?

20 And she said vnto them, Call me not Naomi; call mee Mara: for the Almightie hath dealt very bitterly with me.

21 I went out full, and the Lord hath bought me home againe emptie: 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 Moabitesse her daughter in law with her, which returned out of the countrey of Moab: and they came to Bethlehem, in the beginning of barley haruest.

Jerome's Ruth Chapter 1 comment about verse 13 on 3/25/2014, 3:03pm...

Even in naomi distress she is runing away the two persons she has around her. And that 's the way we are today one hurt and we hurt we push God away and everyone else around us.

 


Semalign's Ruth Chapter 1 comment on 2/14/2014, 4:40pm...

And her name is written in the Book of the Bible as she is in the Line of the House of Dave Jesus What a wonderful history that shows how we got salivation

 


Owinja Benjamin's Ruth Chapter 1 comment on 2/05/2014, 2:26am...

Ruth shows a rare loyality to Naomi, that is her mother in-law & a deep devotion to the God of Israel.

 


Faithfull's Ruth Chapter 1 comment on 1/30/2014, 11:16am...

She was wise to leave the Royal Family unlike Lots wife!
the royal family (one)in the earth to this day are an aristocracy over the entire world this is the Beast both before and after it came up out of the sea Rev. 13:1. All the rulers over the entire earth Kings Queens Judges Corporate-Managers Musicians Producers and all the people of Majestic titles. and in the end times anyone can join by taking the unholy Mark of the Beast

m touched by ruth's courage to turn from a royal family of a pagan nation to follow a widow who has lost everything.to me she portrayed great faith

 


Buddy's Ruth Chapter 1 comment about verse 16 on 1/28/2014, 5:39am...

Ruth's promise of fidelity is a beautiful statement of grace. It is also an absolutely standard part of a middle-eastern custom to this day in which a new wife literally leaves her family and joins the family of her husband. This cultural meaning of Ruth's promise is rarely mentioned or understood in western societies.

To me, it urges us to take our solace where it is offered.

There are times what seems right to us it is not,to the one daughter in law, it seemed the right thing to do was to return to her people (the world), but to Ruth who found a new way of life was able to see and take this new life with faith, in the God that her mother-in-law knew so she choose the path of the mother-in-law and also to worship her God. To God be the Glory. Let us all have that eye to see and ear to hear and the understanding as Ruth did. All blessing.
