Where did the water go? This question is sometimes asked by those who don’t believe there was a worldwide flood. They think such a flood is impossible because there would be no place for the water to go after the flood was over. But there is a simple answer to this question. The water didn’t go anywhere; the flood ended when parts of the earth’s surface rose up to form the continents and islands that exist today.
You covered it with the deep as with a garment;
the waters stood above the mountains.
At your rebuke they fled;
at the sound of your thunder they took to flight.
The mountains rose, the valleys sank down
to the place that you appointed for them.
You set a boundary that they may not pass,
so that they might not again cover the earth.
