I've been studying the book of Ruth. A phrase that has captured my imagination is the "fields of Moab" (Ruth 1:1, 2, 6, 22; 2:6; 4:3). Where is that? Many translations just say the country of Moab, but the word is field. Why the fields? I saw a play a few years ago on the book of Ruth and they portrayed the family as owning a lantern shop. Somehow I think the fields of Moab implies that they went for agricultural reasons to what is now Jordan. Perhaps the translators have it right and I am making too much of the word.
That looks like a great place to raise grain.
