A step in the processing of grain whereby the grain is separated from the inedible parts. The stalks are thrown into the air, and the wind blows away the chaff and the straw, letting the heavier pure grain fall back to the ground (Isaiah 30:24 ). John the Baptist used winnowing as an analogy of God's judgment, when the Lord would separate the sinful from the righteous (Matthew 3:12 ).
