1 Now it came about in the days 1when the judges agoverned, that there was 2a famine in the land. And a certain man 3of Bethlehem in Judah went to sojourn in the land of Moab bwith his wife and his two sons. 2 The name of the man was Elimelech, and the name of his wife, Naomi ; and the names of his two sons were Mahlon and Chilion, Ephrathites of Bethlehem in Judah. Now they 4entered the land of Moab and remained there. 3 Then Elimelech, Naomi's husband, died ; and she was left with her two sons. 4 They took for themselves Moabite women as wives ; the name of the one was Orpah and the name of the other Ruth. And they lived there about ten years. 5 Then cboth Mahlon and Chilion also died, and the woman was bereft of her two children and her husband.
