'Decreased' in the Bible
The water steadily receded from the earth, and by the end of 150 days the waters had decreased significantly.
And the waters decreased continually until the tenth month: in the tenth month, on the first day of the month, were the tops of the mountains seen.
Then he sent forth a dove to see if the waters had decreased from the surface of the ground.
The dove returned to him in the evening, but in its beak there was an olive leaf that it had plucked! So Noah knew that the flood waters had decreased on the land.
Wilt thou show wonders to the dead? Shall they that are decreased arise and praise thee? Selah
As for their enemies, they decreased in number and were beaten down, because of painful distress and suffering.
And out of them shall proceed thanksgiving and the voice of people that live in joy: and I will multiply them, and they shall not be decreased; I will multiply them, and they shall not be cut down.
