And they took them wives of the women of Moab- the name of the one was Orpah, and the name of the other Ruth: & they dwelled there about ten years. And Mahlon and Chilion died both of them- and the woman was left of her two children and of her husband. Chen she arose with her daughters in law, that she might return from the country of Moab: for she had heard in the country of Moab how that the Lord had visited his people in giving them bread. And she went forth out of the place where she was, & her two daughters in law with her- and they went on the way to return unto the land of Judah.
And Naomi said unto her two daughters in law, Go, return each of you to her mothers house: the Lord deal kindly with you, as ye have dealt with the dead, & with me.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
