KJV Usage: flood.
Brown-Driver-Briggs' Hebrew Definitions
1. flood, deluge. a. Noah's flood that submerged the entire planet earth under water for about a year ++++ Some think Noah's flood was only local. However the description of it found in Gen. 6 through 8 makes this patently absurd. If it was local, Noah had 120 years to migrate out of the area to safe ground! Why waste all that effort building a ship? With the possible exception of Ps. 29:10, this word always refers to Noah's flood.
