The light waste material after winnowing grain (where the threshed grain was tossed up into the air so that the husks and straw could be blown away). Often used as a symbol in the Bible of things that will not last and are ultimately unimportant - the schemes of wicked people (Psalms 1:4-5), enemies (Isaiah 29:5), those opposed to God (Matthew 3:12).
