SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:10 Ella entonces bajando su rostro se inclinó a tierra, y le dijo: Â¿Por qué he hallado gracia en tus ojos para que tú me conozcas, siendo yo extranjera?
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Ruth 2:10 Verse 10. Then she fell on her face] Prostrated herself, as was the custom in the East when inferiors approached those of superior rank. The Targum adds to the conversation between Ruth and Boaz: "How, says she, have I obtained grace in thy sight, that thou shouldest acknowledge me who am a stranger and one of the daughters of Moab, of whom it is said, The unclean shall not enter into the congregation of the Lord? And Boaz, answered, It has been certainly told me by the word of the wise, that what the Lord hath decreed, he hath not decreed concerning the women but the men. And it hath been surely said to me by prophecy, that kings and prophets shall proceed from thee because of the good which thou hast done," &c.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 10. Then she fell on her face, and bowed herself to the ground , etc.] In great humility, and under a deep sense of the favour done her, and as showing the greatest respect, in a civil manner, she was capable of: and said unto him, why have I found grace in thine eyes : how is it that one so mean and unworthy should have such favour shown? that thou shouldest take knowledge of me ; take such notice of her, show such affection to her, and bestow such kindness on her: seeing I am a stranger ? not a citizen of Bethlehem, nor indeed one of the commonwealth of Israel; but, as the Targum, “of a strange people, of the daughters of Moab, and of a people who were not fit and worthy to enter into the congregation of the Lord.”
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 4-16 - The pious and kind language between Boaz and his reapers shows tha there were godly persons in Israel. Such language as this is seldo heard in our field; too often, on the contrary, what is immoral an corrupt. A stranger would form a very different opinion of our land from that which Ruth would form of Israel from the converse and conduc of Boaz and his reapers. But true religion will teach a man to behav aright in all states and conditions; it will form kind masters an faithful servants, and cause harmony in families. True religion wil cause mutual love and kindness among persons of different ranks. It ha these effects on Boaz and his men. When he came to them he prayed for them. They did not, as soon as he was out of hearing curse him, as some ill-natured servants that hate their master's eye, but they returne his courtesy. Things are likely to go on well where there is suc good-will as this between masters and servants. They expressed their kindness to each other by praying one for another. Boaz inquire concerning the stranger he saw, and ordered her to be well treated Masters must take care, not only that they do no hurt themselves, but that they suffer not their servants and those under them to do wrong Ruth humbly owned herself unworthy of favours, seeing she was born an brought up a heathen. It well becomes us all to think humbly of ourselves, esteeming others better than ourselves. And let us, in the kindness of Boaz to Ruth, note the kindness of the Lord Jesus Christ to poor sinners.
