SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:21 Y Rut la moabita dijo: Además de esto me ha dicho: Júntate con mis criados, hasta que hayan acabado toda mi siega.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Ruth 2:21 Verse 21. Keep fast by my young men] The word µyr[nh hannearim should be translated servants, both the male and female being included in it; the latter especially, as we see in chap. ii. 22, 23.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 21. And Ruth the Moabitess said, he said unto me also , etc.] Besides the favours he has shown me already, he has given me reason to expect more, for he has given me this strict order: thou shalt keep fast by my young men, until they have ended all my harvest ; both barley harvest and wheat harvest; his will was, that she kept following them, and gleaned after them, as long as both harvests lasted.
The Septuagint version is, “with my maidens”, and which agrees with ( Ruth 2:8), where the order of Boaz is expressed, and with the instructions of Naomi in the next verse, who so understood it; but if we understand it of young men here, there is no contradiction; for both young men and maidens wrought together in the same field, either in reaping or binding up; so that if she kept fast by the one, she also would do the same by the other.
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 __________________________________________________________________
