At mealtime Boaz said to her, "Come over here. Have some bread1 and dip it in the wine vinegar." When she sat down with the harvesters,2 he offered her some roasted grain.3 She ate all she wanted and had some left over.4
As she got up to glean, Boaz gave orders to his men, "Even if she gathers among the sheaves,5 don't embarrass her.
Rather, pull out some stalks for her from the bundles and leave them for her to pick up, and don't rebuke6 her."
