Jonah’s DisobedienceThe word of the Lord came to a Jonah the son of Amittai saying, 2 “Arise, go to b Nineveh the great city and c cry against it, for their d wickedness has come up before Me.” 3 But Jonah rose up to flee to e Tarshish f from the presence of the Lord. So he went down to g Joppa, found a ship which was going to Tarshish, paid the fare and went down into it to go with them to Tarshish from the presence of the Lord. 4 The h Lord hurled a great wind on the sea and there was a great storm on the sea so that the ship was about to ▼
▼ Lit be brokenbreak up. 5 Then the sailors became afraid and every man cried to j his god, and they k threw the ▼
▼ Lit vesselscargo which was in the ship into the sea to lighten it ▼
▼ Lit from upon themfor them. But Jonah had gone below into the hold of the ship, lain down and fallen sound asleep. 6 So the captain approached him and said, “How is it that you are sleeping? Get up, n call on your god. Perhaps your o god will be concerned about us so that we will not perish.” 7 Each man said to his mate, “Come, let us p cast lots so we may ▼
▼ Lit knowlearn on whose account this calamity has struck us.” So they cast lots and the r lot fell on Jonah. 8 Then they said to him, s “Tell us, now! On whose account has this calamity struck us? What is your t occupation? And where do you come from? What is your country? From what people are you?” 9 He said to them, “I am a u Hebrew, and I v fear the Lord w God of heaven who x made the sea and the dry land.” 10 Then the men became extremely frightened and they said to him, ▼
▼ Lit What is this you have done“How could you do this?” For the men knew that he was z fleeing from the presence of the Lord, because he had told them. 11 So they said to him, “What should we do to you that the sea may become calm ▼
▼ Lit from upon usfor us?”—for the sea was becoming increasingly stormy. 12 He said to them, “Pick me up and throw me into the sea. Then the sea will become calm ▼
▼ Lit from upon youfor you, for I know that ac on account of me this great storm has come upon you.” 13 However, the men ▼
▼ Lit dug their oars into the waterrowed desperately to return to land but they could not, for the sea was becoming even stormier against them. 14 Then they called on the ae Lord and said, “We earnestly pray, O Lord, do not let us perish on account of this man’s life and do not put innocent blood on us; for af You, O Lord, have done as You have pleased.” 15 So they picked up Jonah, threw him into the sea, and the sea ag stopped its raging. 16 Then the men feared the Lord greatly, and they offered a sacrifice to the Lord and made ah vows. 17 ▼
▼ Ch 2:1 in HebAnd the Lord appointed a great fish to swallow Jonah, and Jonah was in the aj stomach of the fish three days and three nights.
