Jonah 1:12-15

BBE(i) 12 And he said to them, Take me up and put me into the sea, and the sea will become calm for you: for I am certain that because of me this great storm has come on you. 13 And the men were working hard to get back to the land, but they were not able to do so: for the sea got rougher and rougher against them. 14 So, crying to the Lord, they said, Give ear to our prayer, O Lord, give ear, and do not let destruction overtake us because of this man's life; do not put on us the sin of taking life without cause: for you, O Lord, have done what seemed good to you. 15 So they took Jonah up and put him into the sea: and the sea was no longer angry.
