wo'-ter-fol (tsinnor; only in the American Standard Revised Version (Psalm 42:7)):

"Deep calleth unto deep at the

noise of thy waterfalls;

All thy waves and thy billows

are gone over me."

The King James Version and the English Revised Version have "waterspouts," the English Revised Version margin "cataracts." The etymology of the word is uncertain. It occurs also in 2 Samuel 5:8, translated "watercourse," the King James Version "gutter." Compare (tsanteroth), "spouts" (Zechariah 4:12).
