Waterfalls: צִנּוֹרֶ֑יךָ – tsinnuwr

Deep calls to deep at the roar of your waterfalls; all your breakers and your waves have gone over me.

(Psalms 42:7) ESV

This word is rendered in the KJV as waterspouts which can be confusing in the context of the original Earth hydrological cycle but which is accurate in the context of david’s challenge duringe of Jerusalem.

The ESV very helpfully translates it in a way which is congruent with it’s context.

And David said on that day, “Whoever would strike the Jebusites, let him get up the water shaft to attack ‘the lame and the blind,’ who are hated by David’s soul.” Therefore it is said, “The blind and the lame shall not come into the house.”
