- 1 Now it came about in the days when R1 the judges governed, F1 that there was a R2 famine in the land. And a certain man of R3 Bethlehem in Judah went to sojourn in the land of Moab with F2 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 entered R4 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 both F3 Mahlon and Chilion also died, and the woman was bereft of her two children and her husband.
