Waterfalls in Israel?

Deep calls to deep
    in the roar of your waterfalls;
all your waves and breakers
    have swept over me.
Psalm 42:7

This scripture was read in church the other day and I loved the poetry used by the Psalmist...
"deep calls to deep."
It describes the times we have trouble after trouble in never-ending succession.  You know the time(s); you've lived through them and have come out from beneath the pressure of the flow.  Instead of cursing God you may have offered yourself encouragement such as this Psalmist did so many years ago:

Why, my soul, are you downcast?
 Why so disturbed within me?
Put your hope in God,
for I will yet praise him,
my Savior and my God.

Psalm 42:11
