(tehom; abussos, Lk 8:31 the King James Version; Rom 10:7 the King James Version; bathos, Lk 5:4; buthos, 2 Cor 11:25): The Hebrew word ("water in commotion") is used (1) of the primeval watery waste (Gen 1:2), where some suggest a connection with Babylonian Tiamat in the creation-epic; (2) of the sea (Isa 51:10 and commonly); (3) of the subterranean reservoir of water (Gen 7:11; 8:2; 49:25; Dt 33:13; Ezek 31:4, etc.). In the Revised Version (British and American) the Greek word first noted is rendered, literally, "abyss."
See ABYSS; also ASTRONOMY, sec. III, 7.
