Reading Tutor, Ruth 1:11

וַתֹּאמֶר נָעֳמִי שֹׁבְנָה בְנֹתַי לָמָּה תֵלַכְנָה עִמִּי הַעוֹד־לִי בָנִים בְּמֵעַי וְהָיוּ לָכֶם לַאֲנָשִׁים׃
(Ruth 1:11)

Note that the “a” sound in general is “ah” — when “e” ends a syllable it is “uh” as in “maroon” (MUH-roon) — “e” with a consonant after it rhymes with “bed” — “ie” here should rhyme with “pie”:

va-toe-mer Na-oe-mee shoe-ve-nah ve-noe-tie lammah tay-lakh-nah eemmee ha-oad lee va-neem be-may-’ie ve-ha-yoo lakhem la-ana-sheem:
