Separate the wheat from the chaff (馬太福音3:12)

圖片說明: Wheat
圖片版權: V.

聖經經文

“His winnowing fork is in his hand, and he will clear his threshing floor, gathering his wheat into the barn and burning up the chaff with unquenchable fire.” “他手裡拿著簸箕,要揚淨他的場,把麥子收在倉裡;把糠用不滅的火燒盡了。” (馬太福音3:12)

意思

Separate the wheat from the chaff的意思是把高端的東西與低劣的分開。

來源及應用

糠(chaff)是農夫簸箕后剩下的殘余物,是沒有價值的東西。在聖經里,糠被喻作假教義。Separate the wheat from the chaff意旨把真理從錯誤的教義分別出來。 糠的另一含義是不值一錢的東西。

例句

Every year we pick our suppliers at the trade fair so that we can separate the wheat from the chaff. 我們須到交易會選擇供應商,屆時它們的品質便會高下立見。
