11 In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.
12 And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights.
From this short verse we learn the the flood waters came from three sources.
- fountains of the great deep were broken up (or burst open, see cross reference)
- windows of heaven were opened
- rain upon the earth for forty days and forty nights.
