DISCUSSION:  The water cycle in the scriptures

All the rivers run into the sea,  yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again. Ecclesiastes 1:7
If the clouds be full of rain, they empty themselves upon the earth: Ecclesiastes 11:3a
He causes the vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth; he makes lightnings for the rain; he brings the wind out of his treasuries. Psalm 135:7
He that calls for the waters of the sea, and pours them out upon the face of the earth: The LORD is his name. Amos 9:6b
When he utters his voice, there is a multitude of waters in the heavens, and he causes the vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth; he makes lightnings with rain, and brings forth the wind out of his treasures. Jeremiah 10:13
