Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ruth 2:8-9

_ _ said Boaz unto Ruth, ... bide here fast by my maidens — The reaping was performed by women while the assortment of sheaves was the duty of men-servants. The same division of harvest labor obtains in Syria still. Boaz not only granted to Ruth the full privilege of gleaning after his reapers, but provided for her personal comfort.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ruth 2:4-16.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ruth 2:8

Maidens — Not by the young men, to avoid both occasion of sin, and matter of scandal. Herein he shews his piety and prudence.
