Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ruth 2:21

_ _ all my harvest — both barley and wheat harvests. The latter was at the end of May or the beginning of June.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ruth 2:17-23.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ruth 2:21

Harvest — Both barley — harvest, and wheat — harvest. She tells what kindness Boaz had shewed her; but not, how he had commended her. Humility teaches not only not to praise ourselves, but not to be forward in repeating the praise which others have given us.
