Verse-by-Verse Bible Commentary

Deuteronomy 24:20

 

 

"When you beat your olive tree, you shall not go over the boughs again; it shall be for the alien, for the orphan, and for the widow.

John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

When thou beatest thine olive tree,.... With sticks and staves, to get off the olives when ripe:

thou shall not go over the boughs again; to beat off some few that may remain; they were not nicely to examine the boughs over again, whether there were any left or not:

it shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the widow; who might come into their oliveyards after the trees had been beaten, and gather what were left.
