Wikipedia Meaning and Definition on 'Deeps'


The Deeps is the English term for the Hebrew Tehom (תהוֹם), found in the opening verses of the Book of Genesis. It is believed by Biblical scholars to come from the Sumerian word Tiamat, the name given to the Salt Water, and means "The Mother of All Life", (from Sumerian "Ti" = Life, "Ama" = Mother), a title similar to one that, in the Bible, was later given to Eve. ("And the man called his wife's name Eve, because she was the mother of all living" – (Genesis 3:20).
