What are the ramifications of the Pasuk telling us that "the water was turbulent... for (until) a hundred and fifty days"?


Seforno: From the time the Flood began (on the seventeenth of the second month) until the seventeenth of the seventh month (a hundred and fifty days, 1 ) the turbulence of the water caused the Ark to rise, 2 until it was higher than the tallest mountain, when it began to move. On that day, the turbulence ceased and the Ark rested on Mount Ararat.


Rashi counts these 150 days differently; refer to 8:3:2:1.


Refer to 7:18:1:3*.
