    Basic English Translation (BBE)

    And when you get in the grain from your land, do not let all the grain at the edges of the field be cut, and do not take up the grain which has been dropped in the field; let that be for the poor, and for the man from another country: I am the Lord your God.

    Clarke's Commentary on Leviticus 23:22

    Neither shalt thou gather any gleaning - See the note on Leviticus 19:9.

    Barnes' Notes on Leviticus 23:22

    The repetition of the Law (see the margin reference) is appropriately connected with the thanksgiving for the completed grain harvest.

    Wesley's Notes on Leviticus 23:22

    23:22 When ye reap, thou - From the plural, ye, he comes to the singular, thou, because he would press this duty upon every person who hath an harvest to reap, that none might plead exemption from it. And it is observable, that though the present business is only concerning the worship of God, yet he makes a kind of excursion to repeat a former law of providing for the poor, to shew that our devotion to God is little esteemed by him if it be not accompanied with acts of charity to men.
