: : I need to know how the phrase "when the waters parted" is used in the English language. What are some of the modern day examples of how you would use this phrase? What might it refer to?
: Moses parting the Nile - a really great achievment. Thus the phrase can be used to indicate this type of event. Not common in the UK.
Not common in the US, either.
