Ruth 1:17-22

RSV 17 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." NIV 17 Where you die I will die, and there I will be buried. May the LORD deal with me, be it ever so severely, if anything but death separates you and me." RSV 18 And when Na'omi saw that she was determined to go with her, she said no more. NIV 18 When Naomi realized that Ruth was determined to go with her, she stopped urging her. RSV 19 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?" NIV 19 So the two women went on until they came to Bethlehem. When they arrived in Bethlehem, the whole town was stirred because of them, and the women exclaimed, "Can this be Naomi?" RSV 20 She said to them, "Do not call me Na'omi, call me Mara, for the Almighty has dealt very bitterly with me. NIV 20 "Don't call me Naomi, " she told them. "Call me Mara, because the Almighty has made my life very bitter. RSV 21 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?" NIV 21 I went away full, but the LORD has brought me back empty. Why call me Naomi? The LORD has afflicted me; the Almighty has brought misfortune upon me." RSV 22 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. NIV 22 So Naomi returned from Moab accompanied by Ruth the Moabitess, her daughter-in-law, arriving in Bethlehem as the barley harvest was beginning.
