“The corners of fields were not to be reaped, and the sheaf” “accidentally left behind was not to be fetched away, according” to the law of Moses (Lev. 19:9; 23:22; Deut. 24:21). They were to be left for the poor to glean. Similar laws were given regarding vineyards and oliveyards. (Comp. Ruth 2:2.)
