1 Jonah flees to Tarshish
2 Arise, go to Nineveh, that Gen. 10:11great city, and cry against it; for Gen. 18:20their wickedness is come up before me.
3 But Jonah rose up to flee unto Tarshish from the presence of the Lord, and went down to Josh. 19:46Joppa; and he found a ship going to Tarshish: so he paid the fare thereof, and went down into it, to go with them unto Tarshish Gen. 4:16from the presence of the Lord.
5 Then the mariners were afraid, and cried every man unto his god, and cast forth the wares that were in the ship into the sea, to lighten it of them. But Jonah was gone down 1 Sam. 24:3into the sides of the ship; and he lay, and was fast asleep.
6 So the shipmaster came to him, and said unto him, What meanest thou, O sleeper? arise, Ps. 107:28call upon thy God, Joel 2:14if so be that God will think upon us, that we perish not.
7 And they said every one to his fellow, Come, and let us Josh. 7:14;1 Sam. 14:41cast lots, that we may know for whose cause this evil is upon us. So they cast lots, and the lot fell upon Jonah.
8 Then said they unto him, Josh. 7:19Tell us, we pray thee, for whose cause this evil is upon us; What is thine occupation? and whence comest thou? what is thy country? and of what people art thou?
12 And he said unto them, John 11:50Take me up, and cast me forth into the sea; so shall the sea be calm unto you: for I know that for my sake this great tempest is upon you.
14 Wherefore they cried unto the Lord, and said, We beseech thee, O Lord, we beseech thee, let us not perish for this man's life, and Deut. 21:8lay not upon us innocent blood: for thou, O Lord, Ps. 115:3hast done as it pleased thee.
