Brigette Weier

Thanks John, Very helpful! Great point about the shovel versus the winnowing fork. Brigette

John Petty

Thanks to both of you for your comments. Much appreciated!

Bill Schlesinger

Winnowing Fork or shovel as I've understood was shoveling both up from the floor and tossing in the air in an open sided area; wheat falls and chaff blows to the side. It's an old process of separation, which fits the usage in the verse.

John Petty

If the chaff had blown away though, there would have been none to burn up!

Thanks for your visit, Bill.
