1Bere a na atemmufo di Israel so no, ɔkɔm baa asase no so. Ɔbarima bi a ofi Betlehem wɔ Yuda ne ne yere ne ne mmabarima baanu tutu fii asase no so kɔtenaa Moab. 2Na ɔbarima no din de Elimelek1.2 Wonyaa din Efrati fii abusua a Elimelek fi mu no. Ɛno nti, Elimelek de nʼabusua din no ɔmantam a ɛbɛn Betlehem a ɛtɔ da a wɔfrɛ no Betlehem Efrata no (4.11; 1 Mose 35.19; 1 Sam 17.12; Mika 5.2). na ne yere nso din de Naomi. Ne mmabarima baanu no nso, na wɔn din de Mahlon ne Kilion. Wɔyɛ Efratifo a wofi Betlehem wɔ Yuda. Wɔkɔɔ Moab kɔtenaa hɔ. 3Ɛbaa sɛ Naomi kunu Elimelek wu ma ɛkaa ne mmabarima baanu no. 4Wɔwarewaree Moabfo mmea. Na ɔbaako din de Orpa na nea ɔka ho no nso din de Rut. Wɔtenaa hɔ bɛyɛ sɛ mfe du no, 5Mahlon ne Kilion nso wuwui. Enti ɛmaa Naomi tenaa ase a wahwere ne mmabarima baanu no ne ne kunu.

6Bere a ɔtee wɔ Moab hɔ sɛ Awurade abɛdom ne nkurɔfo a wɔwɔ Yuda na wama wɔn aduan no, Naomi ne ne nsenom yi yɛɛ ahoboa sɛ wɔrefi Moab asan akɔ ne kurom. 7Ɔne ne nsenom baanu yi tutu fii beae hɔ faa kwan a ɛde wɔn bɛkɔ akosi Yuda so.

8Afei, Naomi ka kyerɛɛ ne nsenom yi se, “Monsan nkɔ mo nanom fi. Awurade ne mo nni no yiye sɛnea mo ne awufo ne me dii no yiye no. 9Awurade mmoa mo mu biara na onya ɔhome wɔ okunu foforo fi.” Afei, ofifew wɔn ano na wɔn nyinaa maa wɔn nne so sui.

10Na wɔka kyerɛɛ Naomi se, “Yɛne wo bɛsan akɔ wo nkurɔfo nkyɛn.”

11Nanso Naomi kae se, “Me mma, monsan nkɔ fie. Adɛn nti na ɛsɛ sɛ mo ne me kɔ? Merekɔwo mmabarima bio a wobetumi awareware mo ana? 12Me mma, monsan nkɔ fie. Manyin, sɛ meware kunu bio a, ɛrenyɛ yiye.

Asɛm no yɛ den ma me sen mo, efisɛ Awurade ayi ne nsa afi me so!”

14Wɔsan twaa adwo bio. Afei, Orpa few nʼase ano de gyaa no kwan, nanso Rut bebaree Naomi sɛ ɔne no bɛtena.

15Nanso Naomi ka kyerɛɛ no se, “Hwɛ, wo kora asan kɔ ne nkurɔfo ne nʼanyame nkyɛn. Ɛsɛ sɛ wo nso woyɛ saa ara.”

16Na Rut buae se, “Nhyɛ me sɛ mimfi wo nkyɛn nsan nkɔ. Baabiara a wobɛkɔ no, mɛkɔ hɔ bi na baabiara a wobɛtena no nso, mɛtena hɔ bi. Wo nkurɔfo bɛyɛ me nkurɔfo na wo Nyankopɔn ayɛ me Nyankopɔn. 17Baabi a wubewu no, mewu hɔ bi na wɔasie me hɔ. Sɛ mamma owu antetew me ne wo ntam na ɛnam biribi foforo biara so a, Awurade ntwe mʼaso.” 18Enti Naomi huu sɛ Rut ayɛ nʼadwene sɛ ɔne no bɛkɔ no, ogyaa ne pɛ maa no.

19Ɛno nti, wɔn baanu no toaa wɔn akwantu no so. Bere a woduu Betlehem no, wɔn nti kurow mu no nyinaa bɔɔ twi. Mmea no bisae se, “Naomi ni ana?”

20Ɔkae se, “Mommfrɛ me Naomi, na mmom, momfrɛ me Mara, efisɛ Awurade ama asetena ayɛ nwen ama me. 21Merefi ha akɔ no na mewɔ biribiara, nanso Awurade de me aba fie nsapan. Adɛn nti na mofrɛ me Naomi wɔ bere a Awurade ama mahu amane na Otumfo de saa abɛbrɛsɛ yi aba me so?”

22Enti Naomi fi Moab bae a, nʼase Rut, Moabni babun ka ne ho. Woduu Betlehem atokotwa bere mfiase no mu.

Naomi ndi Rute

1Mu nthawi imene oweruza ankalamulira Israeli, munali njala mʼdziko, ndipo munthu wina wa ku Betelehemu mʼdziko la Yuda anapita pamodzi ndi mkazi wake ndi ana ake aamuna awiri, kukakhala ku Mowabu kwa nthawi yochepa. 2Dzina la munthuyo linali Elimeleki, dzina la mkazi wake linali Naomi, ndipo mayina a ana awo aamuna anali Maaloni ndi Kiliyoni. Iwo anali Aefurati ochokera ku Betelehemu ku Yuda. Ndipo anapita kukakhala ku Mowabu.

3Kenaka Elimeleki, mwamuna wake wa Naomi anamwalira ndipo Naomiyo anatsala ndi ana ake aamuna awiri aja.

4Iwo anakwatira akazi a Chimowabu; wina dzina lake Oripa ndi wina Rute. Atakhala kumeneko pafupifupi zaka khumi, 5Maloni ndi Kiliyoni anamwaliranso kotero kuti Naomi anatsala yekha wopanda ana ake awiri aja ndi mwamuna wake.

6Naomi ndi apongozi ake awiri aja ananyamuka kubwerera kwawo kuchokera ku Mowabu popeza anali atamva ali ku Mowabuko kuti Yehova anakomera mtima anthu ake ndi kuwapatsa chakudya.

7Naomi pamodzi ndi apongozi ake awiri aja anachoka kumene ankakhala ndi kuyamba ulendo obwerera kwawo ku Yuda.

8Kenaka Naomi anati kwa apongozi ake awiri aja, “Bwererani, aliyense kwa amayi ake. Yehova akukomereni mtima, monga munachita ndi malemu aja ndi ine ndemwe.

9“Yehova akuthandizeni kuti aliyense wa inu apeze pokhala pabwino komanso mwamuna.” Kenaka anawapsompsona koma awiriwo analira mokweza.

10Ndipo anati kwa Naomi, “Ife tipita nawo kwa anthu akwanu.”

11Koma Naomi anati, “Bwererani kwanu ana anga. Chifukwa chiyani mukufuna kupita ndi ine? Kodi ine ndingaberekenso ana ena kuti akhale amuna anu? 12Bwererani kwanu ana anga muzipita kwanu. Ine ndakalamba kwambiri kotero kuti sindingakwatiwenso. Ngakhale ndikananena kuti ndili nacho chikhulupiriro, ngakhale ndikanakhala ndi mwamuna usiku uno, ndipo nʼkubala ana aamuna, 13kodi inu mukanadikira kuti akule? Kodi mukanakhalabe osakwatiwa kudikira iwowo? Ayi ana anga. Zimenezi zikundiwawa kwambiri kuposa inu, chifukwa ndi ineyo amene Yehova wafuna kuti ndizunzike.”

14Atamva zimenezi analiranso kwambiri, ndipo Oripa anapsompsona apongozi ake nawatsanzika, koma Rute anakakamirabe.

15Naomi anati “Taona, mʼbale wako wabwerera kwawo kwa anthu ake ndi kwa milungu yake. Bwerera nawenso umulondole mʼbale wako.”

16Koma Rute anayankha kuti, “Musandikakamize kuti ndikusiyeni kapena kuti ndibwerere osakutsatani. Kumene inu mupite ine ndipita komweko, ndipo kumene mukakhale inenso ndikakhala komweko. Abale anu adzakhala abale anga ndipo Mulungu wanu adzakhala Mulungu wanga. 17Kumene mukafere inenso ndidzafera komweko ndipo komweko ndikayikidwa mʼmanda. Yehova andichite choyipa chingakule motani, ngati china chingatirekanitse ife kupatula imfa.”

18Naomi atazindikira kuti Rute watsimikiza kupita naye, analeka kumukakamiza.

19Choncho amayi awiriwo anapitiriza ulendo wawo mpaka anakafika ku Betelehemu. Pamene ankafika mu Betelehemu, anthu onse a mʼmudzimo anatekeseka chifukwa cha iwowo ndipo amayi ambiri ankanena kuti, “Kodi uyu nʼkukhala Naomi?”

20Iye anawawuza kuti, “Musanditchenso Naomi. Muzinditchula ine kuti Mara, chifukwa Wamphamvuzonse wandizunza kwambiri. 21Ine ndinapita wolemera, koma Yehova wabwera nane wopanda kanthu. Nanga munditchulirenji Naomi pamene Yehova wandisautsa. Wamphamvuzonse uja wandigwetsera mavuto owawa.”

22Naomi anabwerera kuchoka ku dziko la Mowabu pamodzi ndi Rute mpongozi wake. Ndipo anafika ku Betelehemu nthawi yoyamba kukolola barele.
