St. Thomas Aquinas—On Prayer and The Contemplative Life
Are they driven before the wind like straw? Are they carried away by the storm like chaff? Not at all!
I ground them as fine as dust in the wind. I swept them into the gutter like dirt.
Blow them away like chaff in the wind--a wind sent by the angel of the LORD.
But though they thunder like breakers on a beach, God will silence them, and they will run away. They will flee like chaff scattered by the wind, like a tumbleweed whirling before a storm.
They hardly get started, barely taking root, when he blows on them and they wither. The wind carries them off like chaff.
"I will scatter you like chaff that is blown away by the desert winds.
