The meaning of Deep in the Bible
(From International Standard Bible Encyclopedia)

(tehom; abussos, Luke 8:31 the King James Version; Romans 10:7 the King James Version; bathos, Luke 5:4; buthos, II Corinthians 11:25): The Hebrew word ("water in commotion") is used (1) of the primeval watery waste (Genesis 1:2), where some suggest a connection with Babylonian Tiamat in the creation-epic; (2) of the sea (Isaiah 51:10 and commonly); (3) of the subterranean reservoir of water (Genesis 7:11; Genesis 8:2; Genesis 49:25; Deuteronomy 33:13; Ezekiel 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.
