Reading Tutor, Ruth 1:8

וַתֹּאמֶר נָעֳמִי לִשְׁתֵּי כַלֹּתֶיהָ לֵכְנָה שֹּׁבְנָה אִשָּׁה לְבֵית אִמָּהּ יַעַשׂ יְהֹוָה עִמָּכֶם חֶסֶד כַּאֲשֶׁר עֲשִׂיתֶם עִם–הַמֵּתִים וְעִמָּדִי
(Ruth 1:8)

READING TUTOR: Note that the “a” sound in general is “ah” — when “e” ends a syllable it is “uh” as in “maroon” (MUH-roon) — when “e” has a consonant after it pronounce as a short e as in “bed”– “er” should rhyme with “err” as in “to err is human”:

va-toe-mer Na-oe-mee leesh-tay khaloe-tay-ha laykh-nah shoav-nah eeshah le-vayt eemah ya-as Adonai eema-khem khesed ka-asher asee-tem eem ha-mayteem ve-eemadee:
