The book of Ruth /Warning for end times (When the covering is gone! beware of predators!!!!)

1Now it came to pass in the days when the judges ruled, that there was a famine in the land.
3And Elimelech Naomi's husband died, and she was left, and her two sons.
4And they took them wives of the women of Moab; the name of the one was Orpah, and the name of the other Ruth: and they dwelled there about ten years.
5And Mahlon and Chilion died also both of them; and the woman (Ruth) was left of her two sons and her husband. So Naomi returned, and Ruth the Moabitess, her daughter in law, with her, which returned out of the country of Moab: and they came to Bethlehem in the beginning of barley harvest.

8Then said Boaz unto Ruth, Hearest thou not, my daughter? Go not to glean in another field, neither go from hence, but abide here fast by my maidens:
9Let thine eyes be on the field that they do reap, and go thou after them: have I not charged the young men that they shall not touch thee? and when thou art athirst, go unto the vessels, and drink of that which the young men have drawn.

Boaz gave a command, that the young men not touch thee.

Who in my churches will give to the widow and orphan and not be a predator of these same widows and the orphans during a famine?

What would Boaz do to these men, if he found them to be predators during a famine?

Boaz must have discernment, many fake Ruth’s will want to take possession of Boaz wealth for their own purposes. He noticed how she worked the barley harvest; she wanted to work, she didn’t accuse or demand handouts. She was humble! So he left her work to glean and gather after the reapers. She was busy with her father’s work!
