This is not in Moab, please note, but in Bethlehem.
The way of transgressors is hard, not on the outward journey, but on the return journey. And when one considers that the journey from Moab to Bethlehem, about 35 miles, is almost the same terrain as from Jerusalem to Jericho, where the man in Luke 10 fell among thieves, and moreover that this time it is uphill and not down hill, something of the rigours of the return journey will become more apparent. We also, beloved brethren, like all the city of Bethlehem, may well be moved for these women. They had done well to accomplish such a journey.
We must now enquire who Boaz is. His name means "In Him is strength. He is a wonderful picture of our Lord Jesus Christ in His resurrection power and glory. He is not only "strong and mighty", "mighty in battle. He is well able to implement the promises of God to Israel. Indeed He is the rich One who for us became poor that we through His poverty may be made rich.
He will enrich the whole creation with the blessing of God and, I need hardly say, can enrich us all today. Then could we especially notice that spiritual feature in Ruth which above all others attracted the notice of Boaz. Affection, obedience and diligence also marked Ruth, but it was faith in God which was noticed, and gained the reward. Happy if we also can exhibit such single-hearted vigour and purpose and also set the Lord, in our measure, always before our face.
I desire to draw attention only to a few of the features in the second chapter of Ruth. First of all it was the barley harvest and then the wheat harvest.

Let us dwell a little on the gleaning. In verse 2 it is "ears of corn," then verse 7 "among the sheaves" and finally verse 16 "handfuls of purpose. In verse 3 Ruth gleans "after the reapers. It is well to keep close to them. Then there are the maidens. Perhaps they set forth the subjective fruits of grace in the soul - follow righteousness, faith, love and peace with them that call upon the Lord out of a pure heart.
Then the young men may represent more that which is official, men as distinct from women, and young here to show the vigour required in the work. The servant over the reapers appears to be a type of the Holy Spirit.
