Naomi Instructs Ruth

1Then Naomi her mother in law said to her, My daughter, shall I not seek rest for you, that it may be well with you? 2And now is not Boaz of our kindred, with whose maidens you were? Behold, he winnows barley to night in the threshing floor. 3Wash yourself therefore, and anoint you, and put your raiment on you, and get you down to the floor: but make not yourself known to the man, until he shall have done eating and drinking. 4And it shall be, when he lies down, that you shall mark the place where he shall lie, and you shall go in, and uncover his feet, and lay you down; and he will tell you what you shall do. 5And she said to her, All that you say to me I will do. 6And she went down to the floor, and did according to all that her mother in law bade her. 7And when Boaz had eaten and drunk, and his heart was merry, he went to lie down at the end of the heap of corn: and she came softly, and uncovered his feet, and laid her down.

he winnoweth It is probable that the winnowing of grain was effected by taking up a portion of the corn in sieve, and letting it down slowly in the wind; thus the grain would, by its own weight, fall in one place, while the chaff, etc., would be carried a distance by the wind. It is said here that this was done at night; probably what was threshed out in the day was winnowed in the evening, when the sea breeze set in, which was common in Palestine.
