Jonah 1

1:1 Now the word of the LORD came to Jonah the son of Amittai,
1:2 Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry against it;
 for their wickedness is come up before me.
1:3 But Jonah arose to flee to Tarshish from the presence of the
 LORD, and went down to Joppa; and he found a ship going to
 Tarshish: so he paid the fare of it, and went down into it, to
 go with them to Tarshish from the presence of the LORD.
1:4 But the LORD sent out a great wind into the sea, and there
 was a mighty tempest in the sea, so that the ship was in danger
 of being broken.
1:5 Then the mariners were afraid, and cried every man to his
 god, and cast the wares that [were] in the ship into the sea,
 to lighten [it] of them. But Jonah had gone down into the sides
 of the ship; and he lay, and was fast asleep.
1:6 So the ship-master came to him, and said to him, What
 meanest thou, O sleeper? arise, call upon thy God, it may be
 that God will think upon us, that we perish not.
1:7 And they said every one to his fellow, Come, and let us cast
 lots, that we may know for whose cause this evil [is] upon us.
 So they cast lots, and the lot fell upon Jonah.
1:8 Then said they to him, Tell us, we pray thee, for whose
 cause this evil [is] upon us; What [is] thy occupation? and
 whence comest thou? what [is] thy country? and of what people

1:9 And he said to them, I [am] a Hebrew; and I fear the LORD,
 the God of heaven, who hath made the sea and the dry [land].
1:10 Then were the men exceedingly afraid, and said to him, Why
 hast thou done this? For the men knew that he fled from the
 presence of the LORD, because he had told them.
1:11 Then said they to him, What shall we do to thee, that the
 sea may be calm to us? for the sea wrought, and was
1:12 And he said to them, Take me, and cast me into the sea; so
 shall the sea be calm to you: for I know that for my sake this
 great tempest [is] upon you.
1:13 Nevertheless the men rowed hard to bring [it] to the land;
 but they could not: for the sea wrought, and was tempestuous
 against them.
1:14 Wherefore they cried to the LORD, and said, We beseech
 thee, O LORD, we beseech thee, let us not perish for this man's
 life, and lay not upon us innocent blood: for thou, O LORD,
 hast done as it pleased thee.
1:15 So they took Jonah, and cast him into the sea: and the sea
 ceased from her raging.
1:16 Then the men feared the LORD exceedingly, and offered a
 sacrifice to the LORD, and made vows.
1:17 Now the LORD had prepared a great fish to swallow up Jonah.
 And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three
