Chapter 1 - Ruth

1 Now it came to pass in the days when the judges ruled, that there was a famine in the land. And a certain man of Bethlehemjudah went to sojourn in the country of Moab, he, and his wife, and his two sons.1 At nangyari nang mga kaarawan nang humatol ang mga hukom, na nagkagutom sa lupain. At isang lalaking taga Bethlehem-juda ay yumaong nakipamayan sa lupain ng Moab, siya, at ang kaniyang asawa, at ang kaniyang dalawang anak na lalake.
2 And the name of the man was Elimelech, and the name of his wife Naomi, and the name of his two sons Mahlon and Chilion, Ephrathites of Bethlehemjudah. And they came into the country of Moab, and continued there.2 At ang pangalan ng lalake ay Elimelech, at ang pangalan ng kaniyang asawa ay Noemi, at ang pangalan ng kaniyang dalawang anak ay Mahalon at Chelion, mga Ephrateo na taga Bethlehem-juda. At sila'y naparoon sa lupain ng Moab, at nanirahan doon.
3 And Elimelech Naomi's husband died; and she was left, and her two sons.3 At si Elimelech na asawa ni Noemi ay namatay: at siya'y naiwan at ang kaniyang dalawang anak.
4 And they took them wives of the women of Moab; the name of the one was Orpah, and the name of the other Ruth: and they dwelled there about ten years.4 At sila'y nagsipagasawa sa mga babae sa Moab; ang pangalan ng isa'y Orpha, at ang pangalan ng isa'y Ruth: at sila'y tumahan doon na may sangpung taon.
5 And Mahlon and Chilion died also both of them; and the woman was left of her two sons and her husband.5 At namatay kapuwa si Mahalon at si Chelion; at ang babae ay naiwan ng kaniyang dalawang anak at ng kaniyang asawa.
6 Then 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.6 Nang magkagayo'y bumangon siya na kasama ng kaniyang dalawang manugang upang siya'y bumalik mula sa lupain ng Moab: sapagka't kaniyang nabalitaan sa lupain ng Moab kung paanong dinalaw ng Panginoon ang kaniyang bayan sa pagbibigay sa kanila ng tinapay.
7 Wherefore she went forth out of the place where she was, and her two daughters in law with her; and they went on the way to return unto the land of Judah.7 At siya'y umalis sa dakong kaniyang kinaroroonan, at ang kaniyang dalawang manugang na kasama niya: at sila'y yumaon upang bumalik sa lupain ng Juda.
8 And Naomi said unto her two daughters in law, Go, return each to her mother's house: the LORD deal kindly with you, as ye have dealt with the dead, and with me.8 At sinabi ni Noemi sa kaniyang dalawang manugang, Kayo'y yumaon, na bumalik ang bawa't isa sa inyo sa bahay ng kaniyang ina: gawan nawa kayo ng magaling ng Panginoon, na gaya ng inyong ginawa sa mga namatay at sa akin.
9 The LORD grant you that ye may find rest, each of you in the house of her husband. Then she kissed them; and they lifted up their voice, and wept.9 Ipagkaloob nawa ng Panginoon na kayo'y makasumpong ng kapahingahan, bawa't isa sa inyo sa bahay ng kaniyang asawa. Nang magkagayo'y kaniyang hinagkan sila; at inilakas nila ang kanilang tinig at nagsiiyak.
10 And they said unto her, Surely we will return with thee unto thy people.10 At sinabi nila sa kaniya, Hindi, kundi kami ay babalik na kasama mo sa iyong bayan.
11 And Naomi said, Turn again, my daughters: why will ye go with me? are there yet any more sons in my womb, that they may be your husbands?11 At sinabi ni Noemi, Kayo'y magsibalik, mga anak ko: bakit kayo'y yayaong kasama ko? may mga anak pa ba ako sa aking tiyan, na magiging inyong mga asawa?
12 Turn again, my daughters, go your way; for I am too old to have an husband. If I should say, I have hope, if I should have an husband also to night, and should also bear sons;12 Kayo'y magsibalik, mga anak ko, magpatuloy kayo ng inyong lakad; sapagka't ako'y totoong matanda na upang magkaroon pa ng asawa. Kung aking sabihin, Ako'y may pagasa, kung ako'y magkaasawa man ngayong gabi, at ako'y magkakaanak man;
13 Would ye tarry for them till they were grown? would ye stay for them from having husbands? nay, my daughters; for it grieveth me much for your sakes that the hand of the LORD is gone out against me.13 Maghihintay kaya kayo hanggang sa sila'y lumaki? magbabawa kaya kayo na magkaasawa? huwag, mga anak ko: sapagka't daramdamin kong mainam dahil sa inyo, sapagka't ang kamay ng Panginoon ay nanaw laban sa akin.
14 And they lifted up their voice, and wept again: and Orpah kissed her mother in law; but Ruth clave unto her.14 At inilakas nila ang kanilang tinig at nagsiiyak uli; at hinagkan ni Orpha ang kaniyang biyanan; nguni't si Ruth ay yumakap sa kaniya.
15 And she said, Behold, thy sister in law is gone back unto her people, and unto her gods: return thou after thy sister in law.15 At sinabi niya, Narito, ang iyong hipag ay bumalik na sa kaniyang bayan, at sa kaniyang dios; bumalik kang sumunod sa iyong hipag.
16 And Ruth said, Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God:16 At sinabi ni Ruth, Huwag mong ipamanhik na kita'y iwan, at bumalik na humiwalay sa iyo; sapagka't kung saan ka pumaroon, ay paroroon ako: at kung saan ka tumigil, ay titigil ako: ang iyong bayan ay magiging aking bayan, at ang iyong Dios ay aking Dios:
17 Where thou diest, will I die, and there will I be buried: the LORD do so to me, and more also, if ought but death part thee and me.17 Kung saan ka mamatay, ay mamamatay ako, at doon ako ililibing; hatulan ako ng Panginoon at lalo na, maliban ang kamatayan ang maghiwalay sa iyo at sa akin.
18 When she saw that she was stedfastly minded to go with her, then she left speaking unto her.18 At nang makita ni Noemi na mapilit ng pagsama sa kaniya, ay tumigil ng pagsasalita sa kaniya.
19 So they two went until they came to Bethlehem. And it came to pass, when they were come to Bethlehem, that all the city was moved about them, and they said, Is this Naomi?19 Sa gayo'y yumaon silang dalawa hanggang sa sila'y dumating sa Bethlehem. At nangyari, nang sila'y dumating sa Bethlehem, na ang buong bayan ay napataka sa kanila; at sinabi ng mga babae, Ito ba'y si Noemi?
20 And she said unto them, Call me not Naomi, call me Mara: for the Almighty hath dealt very bitterly with me.20 At sinabi niya sa kanila, Huwag na ninyo akong tawaging Noemi, tawagin ninyo akong Mara: sapagka't ginawan ako ng kapaitpaitan ng Makapangyarihan sa lahat.
21 I went out full, and the LORD hath brought me home again empty: why then call ye me Naomi, seeing the LORD hath testified against me, and the Almighty hath afflicted me?21 Ako'y umalis na puno, at ako'y iniuwi ng Panginoon na walang dala. Bakit ninyo ako tinatawag na Noemi, yamang ang Panginoon ay nagpatotoo laban sa akin, at dinalamhati ako ng Makapangyarihan sa lahat?
22 So Naomi returned, and Ruth the Moabitess, her daughter in law, with her, which returned out of the country of Moab: and they came to Bethlehem in the beginning of barley harvest.22 Sa gayo'y nagsibalik si Noemi at si Ruth na Moabita, na kaniyang manugang na kasama niya, na nagsibalik mula sa lupain ng Moab: at sila'y nagsidating sa Bethlehem sa pasimula ng pagaani ng sebada.
