GLEANING, GLEAN glēn’ ĭng, glēn. 1. Heb. לָקַט, H4377, pick or gather up, glean, is used of the gathering of grain by the poor, following the reapers, as provided for in the Mosaic law (Lev 19:9; 23:22) and beautifully exemplified in Ruth 2, where the word occurs repeatedly. Boaz’ generosity was rewarded with romance.
