SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:19 Y le dijo su suegra: Â¿Dónde has cogido hoy? Â¿Y dónde has trabajado? Bendito sea el que te ha conocido. Y ella declaró a su suegra lo que le había acontecido con aquél, y dijo: El nombre del varón con quien hoy he trabajado es Booz.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 19. And her mother in law said unto her, where hast thou gleaned today ? etc.] In what part of the field of Bethlehem? or on whose land, that she had gleaned so much? not that she suspected that she had got it in an illicit manner, but supposed she had been directed by the providence of God to a spot of ground where there was good gleaning; of that she had met with some hand, that had dropped ears of corn plentifully in her favour: and where wroughtest thou ? which is the same question repeated in other words, and shows that gleaning is a work, and a hard work too, closely followed, to be stooping and picking up ears of corn a whole day together: blessed be he that did take knowledge of thee : she knew, by the quantity of corn she brought home, that she must have had kindness shown her by somebody; and especially she knew it by the food she brought home, and therefore pronounced the man blessed, or wished him happiness, before she knew who he was; though perhaps she might guess at him, or conjecture in her mind who it was that had taken notice of her: and she showed her mother in law with whom she had wrought : that is, with whose reapers, men and maidens, she had wrought, whom she followed in gleaning, they working in one sort of work, and she in another, yet in the same field: the man’s name with whom I wrought today is Boaz ; that is, in whose field, and with whose servants, she wrought; for Boaz wrought not himself, unless this can be understood of her eating and drinking with him; but the other sense is best.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 17-23 - It encourages industry, that in all labour, even that of gleaning there is profit. Ruth was pleased with what she gained by her ow industry, and was careful to secure it. Let us thus take care that we lose not those things which we have wrought, which we have gained for our souls' good, 2Jo 1:8. Parents should examine their children, a Naomi did, not to frighten or discourage them, so as to make them hat home, or tempt them to tell a lie; but to commend them if they have done well, and with mildness to reprove and caution them if they have done otherwise. It is a good question for us to ask ourselves ever night, Where have I gleaned to-day? What improvement have I made in knowledge and grace? What have I done that will turn to a good account When the Lord deals bountifully with us, let us not be found in an other field, nor seeking for happiness and satisfaction in the creature. We lose Divine favours, if we slight them. Ruth dutifull observed her mother's directions. And when the harvest was ended, sh kept her aged mother company at home. Dinah went out to see the daughters of the land; her vanity ended in disgrace, Ge 34. Ruth kep at home, and helped to maintain her mother, and went out on no othe errand than to get provision for her; her humility and industry ende in preferment __________________________________________________________________
