Regarding the various possible glosses for BAPTIZW:

I find it somewhat interesting that English has the word 'awash' to signify
being flooded.

There appears to be some correlation between 'floodedness', 'washing', and
'cleansing' in people's minds.

Perhaps BAPTIZW has the attributes of all three?

Perhaps the one true and correct method of Baptism would be under a waterfall?
