The fateful Tsunami Sunday was at the start of the weekly Prophets portion, read in Jewish synagogues, containing Chapter 28 from Isaiah. Anyone reading the admonitions and implorations of the great prophet had to have noticed the following hair-raising verses.

The end of verse 2:
“as a flow of mighty waters overflowing”

in verse 15:
“the overflowing scourge shall pass through”

in verse 17:
“and the waters shall overflow the hiding place”

echoed in length by verse 18:
“And your covenant with death shall be annulled, and your agreement with Netherworld shall not stand, when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then you shall be trodden down by it.”

Jews say that God created world according to Tora, i. e. to the hidden meaning of letters, words, word combinations and plain expressions. Many had been carried out,(as promised, Jews have been punished, some nations have disappeared, USA is one of the few countries in history that were privileged to destroy a regime in Mesopotamia) but the structure of the promises, curses and prohibitions remains in effect, to be carried out later on at His will.

I don't think passages from Bible necessarily dictate the events, but they underscore the promises.

That's my speculative opinion - I am no divinity student, rabbi or a born-again soapbox thumper. Just read the passage and my hair got electrified.
