Ruth 1:1 Reading Tutor

וַיְהִי בִּימֵי שְׁפֹט הַשֹּׁפְטִים וַיְהִי רָעָב בָּאָרֶץ וַיֵּלֶךְ אִישׁ מִבֵּית לֶחֶם יְהוּדָה לָגוּר בִּשְׂדֵי מוֹאָב הוּא וְאִשְׁתּוֹ וּשְׁנֵי בָנָיו
(Ruth 1:1).

READING TUTOR: Some who are beginners at reading Hebrew may want to glean from this lesson. On the audio file (that will be found attached at the bottom of the coming LESSON 1 post), I will read the verses out loud. As an additional help, let me give here an easy to pronounce transliteration of vs. 1. Note that the “a” sound in general is “ah” and “e” by itself is “uh” as is “maroon” (MUH-roon):

Va-yehee beemay she-foat ha-shoaf-e-teem va-yehee rah-av ba-aretz va-yaylekh eesh mee-Bayt Lekhem Ye-hoo-dah lah-goor bees-day Mo-av hoo ve-eeshto oo-shnay va-nahv.
