Genesis 7:11 Parallel
CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
7:11 The six hundredth year of Noah's life, was 1656 years from the creation. In the second month, the seventeenth day of the month - Which is reckoned to be about the beginning of November; so that Noah had had a harvest just before, from which to victual his ark. The same day the fountains of the great deep were broken up - There needed no new creation of waters; God has laid up the deep in store - houses, Ps 33:7, and now he broke up those stores.

The rain, which ordinarily descends in drops, then came down in streams. We read, Job 26:8. That God binds up the waters in his thick clouds, and the cloud is not rent under them; but now the bond was loosed, the cloud was rent, and such rains descended as were never known before or since.

2 Peter 3:6
Then he used the water to destroy the ancient world with a mighty flood.
Noah was 600 years old when the flood covered the earth.
The underground waters stopped flowing, and the torrential rains from the sky were stopped.
2 Kings 7:2
The officer assisting the king said to the man of God, "That couldn't happen even if the LORD opened the windows of heaven!" But Elisha replied, "You will see it happen with your own eyes, but you won't be able to eat any of it!"
If he holds back the rain, the earth becomes a desert. If he releases the waters, they flood the earth.
"Have you explored the springs from which the seas come? Have you explored their depths?
But he commanded the skies to open; he opened the doors of heaven.
