    "..we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord.." When Noah and his family and all the animals were safely shut in by the LORD with him inside the ark; there was no more reason to restrain the windows of heaven and the fountains of the great deep; and the cataclysm of waters overthrew the whole earth. When Lot and his wife and daughters were safely out of Sodom; the LORD rained fire.
