2 Peter 3:6 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

The world that then was (ὁ τότε κόσμος)

Lit., the then world. The word for world is literally order, and denotes the perfect system of the material universe.

Being overflowed (κατακλυσθεὶς)

Only here in New Testament. Cataclysm is derived from it.
