35 And the fenced cities are Ziddim, Zer, and [? chammath pronounced kham-math' (warm, hot) springs; Chammath, a place in Palestine: - Hammath. The hot baths of Tiberias were at Hammath a fortified city which was about one mile from Tiberias. The four Hammam send up hot sulphureous water at a temperature of 144 degrees farenheit at the extremity, of the ruins of the ancient city, about a mile from the new town of Tubariyeh.] Hammath, and Rakkath, and Chinnereth, Joshua 19:35

The earth drinks rain.
7 For the earth which drinketh in the rain that cometh oft upon it, and bringeth forth herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed, receiveth blessing from God: Hebrews 6:7

Hot springs occur in volcanic areas of the earth. Hot springs are heated by volcanic rocks, which are themselves, heated by fiery, flaming burning hot magma that is within the earth. Job 28:5

The water that the earth drinks soaks down into the soil and seeps into cracks within rocks that are heated by the magma. Warm water bubbles up out of the earth and forms a hot spring. Clouds of steam rise from hot springs, and as the water evaporates (dries up), terraces (rock formations) are formed from the minerals contained within the waters of the spring.

Mud pots.
Sulphuric acid comes from rain that has dripped down through volcanic rocks. The acid eats away at the rocky ground and produces clay which when mixed with water becomes mud. The mud is heated by geothermal energy, and the mud begins to boil, and it produces bubbles, and it begins to burp foul smelling sulphur.

Iceland is a volcanic area. Icelanders use the water from their hot springs as a power source in homes and factories. Energy that is used from within the interior of the earth is called geothermal energy. The Icelanders feed the hot water through turbines to produce electricity. They also use their hot springs for swimming and for bathing.

Japan is also a volcanic country, there are thousands of hot springs in Japan.
