Elimelech, Na’ami, malchon and Kilyon moved from Bet Lechem to the fields of Moav due to a famine.
Elimelech died and ten years after Na’ami’s children got married they also died.
Na’ami decided to return to Bet Lechem after she saw bread in Moav. Oprah and Ruth her daughter-in-laws told her not to. She said she had already made her mind up and so Oprah kissed her goodbye and went to her G-D. But Ruth stayed and told her that anything she did she would do to.
Na’ami and Ruth came to Bethlehem.
They were anonymous to the people and someone asked if it was Na’ami.
Are you Na’ami?
Do not call me Na’ami for I am poor and have nothing. Call me Mara because the Almighty has embittered me.
