swallowed up the flood
12:16 swallowed up the flood. The means of destruction is apparently a sudden great fissure opening up in the earth, swallowing up the troops and artillery, and even the planes, if any. The earth’s global upheavals during the first 3½ years, with many earthquakes, will have left the great Rift Valley of the region extremely unstable, so such an event could easily be triggered at God’s Word (compare Numbers 16:32-33).
