Winnowing Fork

WINNOWING FORK (Heb. mizreh). A fork with two or more prongs used to throw grain into the air after it had been threshed, so that the chaff might be blown away. The work was done toward evening and at night when a wind came in from the sea and carried away the light chaff. Sometimes a shovel was used for the same purpose. A winnowing fork is referred to in Jer.15.7; Matt.3.12; Luke.3.17.
