Fan; Fanner

Resource Toolbox
fan´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.»
