Ruth 1:19-21 New Revised Standard Version, Anglicised Catholic Edition (NRSVACE)

19 So the two of them went on until they came to Bethlehem. When they came to Bethlehem, the whole town was stirred because of them; and the women said, ‘Is this Naomi?’ 20 She said to them,

‘Call me no longer Naomi,[a]
    call me Mara,[b]
    for the Almighty[c] has dealt bitterly with me.
21 I went away full,
    but the Lord has brought me back empty;
why call me Naomi
    when the Lord has dealt harshly with[d] me,
    and the Almighty[e] has brought calamity upon me?’
