Your Eyes Are On the Field which They Reap

450) It is written, “Your eyes are on the field which they reap.” Why the need to write it here? There are several verses in the Torah that seem as though they need not be written, and we see that they are all high secrets. Moreover, one who sees this verse and does not look in it is as one who has never tasted a stew.

451) This was said in the holy spirit because Boaz, the judge of Israel, saw the humbleness of that righteous woman, that she did not raise her eyes to look elsewhere, but in front of her face, and saw all that she saw with a kind eye, and there was no insolence in her. He praised her eyes.

452) There are eyes for which blessing does not govern in that place, but Boaz saw a kind eye in her, that wherever she looked, it was with a kind eye. He also saw that success was with her, that everything she picked was added in the field. Boaz looked at how the spirit of holiness was over her. Then he started and said, “Your eyes are on the field which they reap.”

Is it because they were picking those others that he said to Ruth, “Your eyes are on the field which they reap, and follow them”? Thus, how did he say that she should follow them? It should have written, “And pick after them.” What is “And follow them”? Indeed, he said, “And follow them” because of her eyes, for her eyes caused many blessings. This is why “And follow them,” meaning follow your eyes. All the people in the world have no permission to follow their eyes, but you will follow your eyes, for your eyes cause many blessings.

453) “Your eyes are on the field which they reap.” Boaz saw in the spirit of holiness that high kings and rulers—the eyes of all—were destined to come out from her. It is as Tamar was, of whom it is written, “And sat in the gateway of Enaim [eyes],” meaning she sat at the door, and kings and high rulers, which are called “eyes” came out of her, as it is written, “If from the eyes of the congregation.” This is so because as all the organs of the body follow only the eyes, and the eyes lead the entire body, so kings and the Sanhedrin, and all those rulers follow them. This is why he said to her, “Your eyes,” for these are the kings and the rulers that were to come from her.

454) “On the field which they reap.” A field is Zion and Jerusalem, as it is written, “Zion will be plowed as a field.” It is also written, “As the smell of a field which the Lord has blessed,” which is Jerusalem. This is why it is written, “Your eyes are on the field,” for these eyes of her, which are to come from her, govern only in the field. “Which they reap,” since from that field, all the people of the world would take Torah and a light that shines, as it is written, “For the law [Torah] will go forth from Zion.”

455) “And follow them,” with these good deeds that I see in you. It is written, “But I have commanded the youths not to touch you,” for a woman’s mind is rash, and this is why he warned the youths from touching her. It is also written, “When you are thirsty, go to the water jars and drink from what the youths draw.” “When you are thirsty is a euphemism. If you wish to attach yourself to a man to keep a seed in the world, go to the Kelim. Those are the righteous, who are called “the Kelim of the Creator,” as it is written, “Purify yourselves, you who carry the vessels of the Lord.” The righteous are destined to bring them the whole world as a gift to the Messiah king. They are the vessels of the Lord, the Kelim that the Creator enjoys. They are broken Kelim, broken in this world, to keep the Torah. And the use that the Creator uses them, He uses only out of those Kelim. And when you cling to them, “And drink.”
