Reading Tutor, Ruth 1:19

וַתֵּלַכְנָה שְׁתֵּיהֶם עַד־בֹּאָנָה בֵּית לָחֶם וַיְהִי כְּבֹאָנָה בֵּית לֶחֶם וַתֵּהֹם כָּל־הָעִיר עֲלֵיהֶן וַתֹּאמַרְנָה הֲזֹאת נָעֳמִי׃
(Ruth 1:19)

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-tay-lokh-nah she-tay-hem ad-bo-a-nah bayt lakhem va-ye-hee ke-vo-a-nah bayt lekhem va-tay-hoam koal-ha-eer alayhen va-toe-mar-nah ha-zoat Naomi:
