The Book of Ruth, Part 8: Boaz’s Generosity Grows

Then he handed her some roasted grain. She ate until she was full and saved the rest. 15 When she got up to gather grain, Boaz told his male servants, “Let her gather grain even among the bundles!

When she threshed what she had gathered, it came to about thirty pounds of barley!
