Ruth 1:19-21 Contemporary English Version (CEV)

19 They reached Bethlehem, and the whole town was excited to see them. The women who lived there asked, “Can this really be Naomi?”

20 Then she told them, “Don’t call me Naomi any longer! Call me Mara,[a] because God has made my life bitter. 21 I had everything when I left, but the Lord has brought me back with nothing. How can you still call me Naomi, when God has turned against me and made my life so hard?”

Footnotes:

  1. 1.20 Mara: In Hebrew “Naomi” means “pleasant,” and “Mara” means “bitter.”
