Genesis 7:1 Yahweh said to Noah, "Come with all of your household into the ship, for I have seen your righteousness before me in this generation.


In the King James Version not less than 13 words are rendered "flood," though in the Revised Version (British and American) we find in some passages "river," "stream," "tempest," etc. The word is used for: the deluge of Noah, mabbul (Genesis 6:17); kataklusmos (Matthew 24:38, 39 Luke 17:27); the waters of the Red Sea, nazal (Exodus 15:8); the Euphrates, nahar, "Your fathers dwelt of old time on the other side of the flood". (the Revised Version (British and American) "beyond the River" Joshua 24:2): the Nile, ye'or, "the flood (the Revised Version (British and American) "River") of Egypt" (Amos 8:8); the Jordan, nahar, "They went through the flood (the Revised Version (British and American) "river") on foot" (Psalm 66:6); torrent, zerem, "as a flood (the Revised Version (British and American) "tempest") of mighty waters" (Isaiah 28:2); potamos, "The rain descended and the floods came" (Matthew 7:25); plemmura, "When a flood arose, the stream brake against that house" (Luke 6:48).

Figurative: nachal, "The floods of ungodly men (the Revised Version (British and American) "ungodliness," the Revised Version, margin "Hebrew Belial") made me afraid" (2 Samuel 22:5 Psalm 18:4); also 'or (Amos 8:8 (the King James Version)); shibboleth (Psalm 69:2); sheTeph (Daniel 11:22 (the King James Version)); sheTeph (Psalm 32:6 (the King James Version)); potamophoretos (Revelation 12:15 (the King James Version)).
