Ruth 1:19-21 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

19 So they went both until they came to Bethlehem: and when they were come to Bethlehem, it was [a]noised of them through all the city, and they said, Is not this Naomi?

20 And she answered them, Call me not [b]Naomi, but call me [c]Mara: for the Almighty hath given me much bitterness.

21 I went out full, and the Lord hath caused me to return empty: why call ye me Naomi, seeing the Lord hath humbled me, and the Almighty hath brought me unto adversity?


  1. Ruth 1:19 Whereby appeareth that she was of a great family of good reputation.
  2. Ruth 1:20 Or, beautiful.
  3. Ruth 1:20 Or, bitter.
