The Waters Prevailed

Genesis 7:17-20
And the flood was forty days upon the earth; and the waters increased, and bare up the ark, and it was lift up above the earth.

And the waters prevailed, and were increased greatly upon the earth; and the ark went upon the face of the waters.

And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and all the high hills, that were under the whole heaven, were covered.

Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered.

Five times does it say the waters prevailed!

Actually, it says the waters multiplied and became strong, and then reiterates both of those by saying they happened exceedingly, or a lot!

Today we would say exponentially!

It wasn't just a lot of water. It was now the sea with whole new characteristics as they had never seen before.
