Ruthe a sela diako mo tshimong ya ga Boase

21Naomi o ne a na le tsala ya monna wa gagwe, e le monna wa senatla yo o humileng wa losika lwa ga Elimelege; leina la gagwe e ne e le Boase. 2Tsatsi le lengwe Ruthe wa Moabe a kopa Naomi a re: “Nte ke ye go ronopa diako kwa masimo, ke latele yo ke bonang bopelotlhomogi mo matlhong a gagwe.” A mo araba a re: “Yaa, morwadiaka!”

3A ya a fitlha a sela mo tshimong, a setse basegi morago; mme a dirafalelwa ke letlhogonolo ka go tsena mo tshimong ya ga Boase yo e leng losika le Elimelege.

4E rile go ise go ye kgakala, Boase a ba a goroga, a tswa kwa Betleheme, a dumedisa basegi a re: “A Morena a nne le lona!” Ba mo araba ba re: “A Morena a go tshegofatse!”

5Mme Boase a botsa motlhanka wa gagwe, e bong mookamedi wa basegi, a re: “Mosetsana yole ke wa ga mang?”

6Mookamedi wa basegi a mo araba a re: “Ke ene mosetsana wa Moabe yo o tsileng le Naomi kwa nageng ya Moabe. 7O kopile a re: ‘Ka thapelo, nte ke ronope, ke sele diako mo gare ga dingata, ke sale basegi morago.’ Fa e sa le a tla, o ntse a tshwere go tloga mo mosong go fitlha jaanong. Ga a nne fa fatshe mo tshimong.”

8Ke fa Boase a raya Ruthe a re: “Reetsa fa, morwadiaka! O se ka wa ya go sela kwa tshimong e sele; le gona o se ka wa tloga fa, mme o nne le basetsana ba me fano. 9Lebisa matlho a gago mo tshimong e ba e robang, o ba sale morago. Ke laetse batlhanka gore ba se ka ba go tshwenya. Fa o nyorilwe ya kwa dinkgong, o nwe metsi a a gilweng ke batlhanka.”

10Ke fa Ruthe a wela fa fatshe ka sefatlhego, a ikoba, a mo raya a re: “Ke ka ntlha ya eng, fa ke bonye bopelotlhomogi mo matlhong a gago, wa ntlhokomela ka tsalano ke le moeng?”

11Boase a araba, a mo raya a re: “Kana ke boleletswe tsotlhe sentle tse o di diretseng matsalaago, monna wa gago a sena go swa, wa tlogela rraago le mmaago le lefatshe la ga eno, wa tla kwa morafeng o ò neng o sa o itse pele.

12A Morena, a go duelele tiro ya gago; tuelo e e tletseng o e fiwe ke Morena, Modimo wa Iseraele, yo ò tlileng go batla botshabelo fa tlase ga diphuka tsa gagwe.”

13Ruthe a re: “A ke nne ke bone bopelotlhomogi mo matlhong a gago, morena wa me! Gonne o nkgomoditse, wa bua le lelata la gago ka bopelontle, le fa ke sa tshwane le ope wa malata a gago.”

14Ka nako ya go ja Boase a mo raya a re: “Atamela kwano o itseele dijo o je, o ine thathana ya gago mo motatsweng.” A tla a nna fa thoko ga basegi mme Boase a mo abela dipabe. A ja, a kgora, a ba a sadisa. 15Ya re a nanoga go sela, Boase a laela batlhanka ba gagwe a re: “A a sele le mo gare ga dingata! Se mo tlhabiseng ditlhong! 16Le gona lo nne lo mo somolele diako mo dingateng, lo di tlogele gore a di sele, mme lo se ka lwa mo omanya.”

17A sela jalo mo tshimong go ya mantsiboeng, a photha tse a di sedileng. Ya nna makapa a le mabedi a garase. 18A e rwala, a ya kwa motseng, a bontsha matsalaagwe tse a di sedileng. A ba a ntsha dijo tse a di sadisitseng a sena go ja, a di mo naya. 19Ke fa matsalaagwe a mmotsa a re: “O tlhotse o sedile kae kajeno, o tswa go dira kwa kae? A go tshegofadiwe yo o go tlhokometseng ka tsalano!” Mme a bolelela matsalaagwe gore o ne a tlhotse a dira le mang a re: “Leina la monna yo ke tlhotseng ke dira fa go ene kajeno ke Boase.”

20Mme Naomi a raya ngwetsi wa gagwe a re: “A a tshegofadiwe ke Morena yo o se kang a tlhokisa baphedi le baswi lorato lwa gagwe!” Naomi a ba a mo raya a re: “Monna yoo ke wa ga etsho; ke mongwe wa bagolodi ba rona.”

21Ruthe wa Moabe a re: “O bile a nthaya a re: ‘O nne le malata a me go fitlhelela ba fetse thobo yotlhe ya me.’ ”

22Ke fa Naomi a araba Ruthe ngwetsi wa gagwe a re: “Go molemo, morwadiaka, fa o ya le basetsana ba gagwe; foo ga o ne o tshwenyega mo masimong a sele.” 23A nna jalo le basetsana ba ga Boase, a ntse a sela go ya bokhutlong jwa thobo ya garase le jwa thobo ya mabele a korong. O ne a ntse a nna le matsalaagwe.

2Jaanong Boase yo ò neng o na le basetsana ba gagwe, kana ene ke wa ga etsho. Bona, o tla lala a olosa garase mo seboaneng bosigong jono. 3Tlhapa o iphotle o apare diaparo tsa gago tsa mokgabo, o fologele kwa seboaneng; o se ka wa nta monna yoo a go lemoga a ise a fetse go ja le go nwa. 4Mme e re a ya go robala, o lebelele fa a robalang teng, o ye o bipolele fa dinaong tsa gagwe, o robale; foo ene o tla go bolelela se o tshwanetseng go se dira.”

5Ruthe a mo araba a re: “Ke tla dira tsotlhe tse o di ntaetseng.”

6A fologela kwa seboaneng, a dira tsotlhe fela jaaka matsalaagwe a mo laetse. 7E rile Boase a sena go ja le go nwa, mme pelo ya gagwe e itumetse, a ya a robala fa thoko ga mokoa wa garase; ke fa Ruthe a tla a ngwangwaela, a bipolela fa dinaong tsa gagwe, a robala. 8Ya re gare ga bosigo monna yoo a tshoga, a kanamologa, a fitlhela mosadi a robetse fa dinaong tsa gagwe. 9A botsa a re: “O mang?” A araba a re: “Ke nna Ruthe, lelata la gago; phuthololela lelata la gago diphuka tsa gago; gonne ke wena mogolodi.”

11Mme jaanong, morwadiaka, se boife. Tsotlhe tse o di buileng ke tla di go direla. Kana go itse mongwe le mongwe mo lekgotleng la morafe wa ga etsho, fa o le mosadi yo o maatlametlo. 12Jaanong he, ke nnete, ke nna mogolodi; mme le gona go na le mogolodi yo o tshwanetseng bogolo go nna. 13Lala fano bosigong jono. E re mo mosong, fa a ka go golola, go siame, a a go golole! Mme fa a sa kgatlhwe ke go go golola, foo nna – ka bophelo jwa Morena – ke tla go golola! Robala fano go ya mosong.”

14Ruthe a robala fa dinaong tsa gagwe go ya mosong, mme a tsoga phakela go ise go bonale. Gonne Boase o ne a re: “A go se ka ga itsiwe gore mosadi yoo o letse kwa seboaneng.” 15Boase a mo raya a re: “Tlisa kobo e o e apereng, o e ntshwarelele.” A e mo tshwarelela, mme Boase a mo tshelela dielo di le thataro tsa garase, a e mo rwesa. Jaanong Ruthe a ya kwa motseng. 16Ya re a fitlha, matsalaagwe a mmotsa a re: “Go ntse jang, morwadiaka?” Ruthe a mmolelela tsotlhe tse monna yoo o di mo diretseng, 17a re: “O mphile dielo di le thataro tseo tsa garase a re: ‘Ga o a tshwanela go fitlha kwa go matsalaago o iphotlhere fela.’ ”

18Mme Naomi a re: “Iketle, morwadiaka, go fitlhelela o be o itse gore kgang e, e felela kae; gonne monna yoo ga a kitla a ikhutsa a ise a fetse kgang e kajeno.”
