Where the world comes to study the Bible

2 Peter 3:6

Overvlowed

The word “overflowed” translates the mighty Greek word katakluzo, from which we get our word cataclysm. In the Greek N.T. this word is only used to refer to Noah’s Flood (cf. Matt. 24:38,39; Luke 17:27; II Peter 2:5) for other words were used for other, lesser, local floods (cf. Luke 6:48, Rev 12:15).
