7 which won't fill the reaper's hand or fill the harvester's arms. 7 with it the reaper cannot fill his hands, nor the one who gathers fill his arms.
8 Let no one who passes by say to them: "May the LORD's blessing be on you! We bless you in the LORD's name!" 8 May those who pass by not say, "The blessing of the LORD be upon you; we bless you in the name of the LORD."
