International Standard Bible Encyclopediafan´ẽr
: The word "fan" occurs 3 times only in the American Standard Revised Version (Jeremiah 15:7
; Matthew 3:12
; Luke 3:17
). In Isaiah 30:24 mizreh
is translated "fork," which is a much better translation if the instrument referred to was shaped like the winnowing fork used by the Syrian farmer today and still so called. In Isaiah 41:16
; Jeremiah 4:11
; Jeremiah 15:7
, the verb zārāh
is rendered "winnow" in the American Standard Revised Version. In Jeremiah 51:2
, the Revised Version (British and American) substitutes "strangers" for "fanners.»
