Job 21:18 (a) As chaff has no value to the farmer, so the wicked have no value to GOD. Because they are worthless and are not stable, nor useful in GOD's program of life, they must be sent to the fire.

Psalm 1:4 (b) Here we have a type of certain kinds of people who have no value to GOD because of their wickedness. As chaff contains no chemicals that can be used by the farmer in any way, so the wicked are lacking in any value to GOD, and so are shut out from GOD's presence because of their worthlessness (See Matthew 3:12).

Isaiah 33:11 (a) By this term the Lord reveals to us how worthless to Him are the ideas, schemes, and programs of the religious movements of this world.

Jeremiah 23:28 (a) This is a symbol of the worthlessness of men's dreams and their idle reasonings. GOD makes foolish the wisdom of this world (See also1Co 3:19).
