Winnowing Out Evil

When a king sits on his throne to judge, he winnows out all evil with his eyes. Proverbs 20:8

For a king to “winnow out all evil” he must have discernment. He must be able to look out over his people and know what’s in the hearts of men. He would be able to do this because he himself is one of them. He could look into their eyes and know.

Fortunately for us, we have a just Judge ruling on the throne. There will be no impartiality whatsoever. And of course, there will be no hiding.

Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account. Hebrews 4:13
