Matthew Henry Commentary
7:17-20 The flood was increasing forty days. The waters rose so high, that the tops of the highest mountains were overflowed more than twenty feet. There is no place on earth so high as to set men out of the reach of God's judgments. God's hand will find out all his enemies, Ps 21:8.

That which to unbelievers betokens death unto death, to the faithful betokens life unto life.
