Jonah 1

Now the word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>
came unto Jonah
<03124>
the son
<01121>
of Amittai
<0573>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
{Jonah: Gr. Jonas}
Arise
<06965> (8798)_,
go
<03212> (8798)
to Nineveh
<05210>_,
that great
<01419>
city
<05892>_,
and cry
<07121> (8798)
against it; for their wickedness
<07451>
is come up
<05927> (8804)
before
<06440>
me.
But Jonah
<03124>
rose up
<06965> (8799)
to flee
<01272> (8800)
unto Tarshish
<08659>
from the presence
<06440>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
and went down
<03381> (8799)
to Joppa
<03305>_;
and he found
<04672> (8799)
a ship
<0591>
going
<0935> (8802)
to Tarshish
<08659>_:
so he paid
<05414> (8799)
the fare
<07939>
thereof, and went down
<03381> (8799)
into it, to go
<0935> (8800)
with them unto Tarshish
<08659>
from the presence
<06440>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
But the LORD
<03068>
sent out
<02904> (8689)
a great
<01419>
wind
<07307>
into the sea
<03220>_,
and there was a mighty
<01419>
tempest
<05591>
in the sea
<03220>_,
so that the ship
<0591>
was like
<02803> (8765)
to be broken
<07665> (8736)_.
{sent out: Heb. cast forth} {was like...: Heb. thought to be broken}
Then the mariners
<04419>
were afraid
<03372> (8799)_,
and cried
<02199> (8799)
every man
<0376>
unto his god
<0430>_,
and cast forth
<02904> (8686)
the wares
<03627>
that [were] in the ship
<0591>
into the sea
<03220>_,
to lighten
<07043> (8687)
[it] of them. But Jonah
<03124>
was gone down
<03381> (8804)
into the sides
<03411>
of the ship
<05600>_;
and he lay
<07901> (8799)_,
and was fast asleep
<07290> (8735)_.
So the shipmaster
<07227> <02259>
came
<07126> (8799)
to him, and said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, What meanest thou, O sleeper
<07290> (8737)_?
arise
<06965> (8798)_,
call
<07121> (8798)
upon thy God
<0430>_,
if so be that God
<0430>
will think
<06245> (8691)
upon us, that we perish
<06> (8799)
not.
And they said
<0559> (8799)
every one
<0376>
to his fellow
<07453>_,
Come
<03212> (8798)_,
and let us cast
<05307> (8686)
lots
<01486>_,
that we may know
<03045> (8799)
for whose cause
<07945>
this evil
<07451>
[is] upon us. So they cast
<05307> (8686)
lots
<01486>_,
and the lot
<01486>
fell
<05307> (8799)
upon Jonah
<03124>_.
Then said
<0559> (8799)
they unto him, Tell
<05046> (8685)
us, we pray thee, for whose cause this evil
<07451>
[is] upon us; What [is] thine occupation
<04399>_?
and whence
<0370>
comest
<0935> (8799)
thou? what [is] thy country
<0776>_?
and of what people
<05971>
[art] thou?
And he said
<0559> (8799)
unto them, I [am] an Hebrew
<05680>_;
and I fear
<03373>
the LORD
<03068>_,
the God
<0430>
of heaven
<08064>_,
which hath made
<06213> (8804)
the sea
<03220>
and the dry
<03004>
[land]. {the LORD: or, JEHOVAH}
Then were the men
<0582>
exceedingly
<01419> <03374>
afraid
<03372> (8799)_,
and said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Why hast thou done
<06213> (8804)
this? For the men
<0582>
knew
<03045> (8804)
that he fled
<01272> (8802)
from the presence
<06440>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
because he had told
<05046> (8689)
them. {exceedingly...: Heb. with great fear}
Then said
<0559> (8799)
they unto him, What shall we do
<06213> (8799)
unto thee, that the sea
<03220>
may be calm
<08367> (8799)
unto us? for the sea
<03220>
wrought
<01980> (8802)_,
and was tempestuous
<05590> (8802)_.
{may...: Heb. may be silent from us} {wrought...: or, grew more and more tempestuous: Heb. went}
And he said
<0559> (8799)
unto them, Take me up
<05375> (8798)_,
and cast me forth
<02904> (8685)
into the sea
<03220>_;
so shall the sea
<03220>
be calm
<08367> (8799)
unto you: for I know
<03045> (8802)
that for my sake
<07945>
this great
<01419>
tempest
<05591>
[is] upon you.
Nevertheless the men
<0582>
rowed hard
<02864> (8799)
to bring
<07725> (8687)
[it] to the land
<03004>_;
but they could
<03201> (8804)
not: for the sea
<03220>
wrought
<01980> (8802)_,
and was tempestuous
<05590> (8802)
against them. {rowed: Heb. digged} {wrought...: or, grew more and more tempestuous: Heb. went}
Wherefore they cried
<07121> (8799)
unto the LORD
<03068>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
We beseech thee
<0577>_,
O LORD
<03068>_,
we beseech thee, let us not perish
<06> (8799)
for this man's
<0376>
life
<05315>_,
and lay
<05414> (8799)
not upon us innocent
<05355> (8675) <05355>
blood
<01818>_:
for thou, O LORD
<03068>_,
hast done
<06213> (8804)
as it pleased
<02654> (8804)
thee.
So they took up
<05375> (8799)
Jonah
<03124>_,
and cast him forth
<02904> (8686)
into the sea
<03220>_:
and the sea
<03220>
ceased
<05975> (8799)
from her raging
<02197>_.
{ceased: Heb. stood}
Then the men
<0582>
feared
<03372> (8799)
the LORD
<03068>
exceedingly
<01419> <03374>_,
and offered
<02076> (8799)
a sacrifice
<02077>
unto the LORD
<03068>_,
and made
<05087> (8799)
vows
<05088>_.
{offered...: Heb. sacrifice unto the LORD, and vowed vows}
Now the LORD
<03068>
had prepared
<04487> (8762)
a great
<01419>
fish
<01709>
to swallow up
<01104> (8800)
Jonah
<03124>_.
And Jonah
<03124>
was in the belly
<04578>
of the fish
<01709>
three
<07969>
days
<03117>
and three
<07969>
nights
<03915>_.
{belly: Heb. bowels}
