(24) Stubble.--Our English word means the "stalks of the corn left in the field by the reaper" (Johnson). The Hebrew word is applied to the broken straw left on the threshing-floor after the oxen had been driven over the corn, which was liable to be carried away by the first gale (Isaiah 40:24; Isaiah 41:2).

The wind of the wilderness.--i.e., the simoom blowing from the Arabian desert (Jeremiah 4:11; Job 1:19).
