'Abated' in the Bible
He sent forth a dove from him, to see if the waters were abated from the surface of the ground,
The dove came back to him at evening, and, behold, in her mouth was an olive leaf plucked off. So Noah knew that the waters were abated from the earth.
The people cried to Moses; and Moses prayed to Yahweh, and the fire abated.
Moses was one hundred twenty years old when he died: his eye was not dim, nor his natural force abated.
