843. Verse 2 And the fountains of the deep and the floodgates of heaven were stopped up, and the rain from heaven was restrained means that temptation came to an end. 'The fountains of the deep' are evils present in the will, 'the floodgates of heaven' falsities present in the understanding, 'rain' temptation itself in general.
