It is probable that the winnowing of grain was effected by
taking up a portion of the corn in a sieve, and letting it
down slowly in the wind; thus the grain would, by its own
weight, fall in one place, while the chaff, etc., would be
carried a distance by the wind. It is said here that this was
done at night; probably what was threshed out in the day was
winnowed in the evening, when the sea breeze set in, which was
common in Palestine.
