1 H1697 Now the word H3068 of the Lord H3124 came unto Jonah H1121 the son H573 of Amittai, H559 saying,
2 H6965 Arise, H3212 go H5210 to Nineveh, H1419 that great H5892 city, H7121 and cry H7451 against it; for their wickedness H5927 is come up H6440 before me.
3 H3124 But Jonah H6965 rose up H1272 to flee H8659 unto Tarshish H6440 from the presence H3068 of the Lord, H3381 and went down H3305 to Joppa; H4672 and he found H591 a boat H935 going H8659 to Tarshish: H5414 so he paid H7939 the fare H3381 there, and went down H935 into it, to go H8659 with them unto Tarshish H6440 from the presence H3068 of the Lord.
4 H3068 But the Lord H2904 sent out H1419 a great H7307 wind H3220 into the sea, H1419 and there was a mighty H5591 storm H3220 in the sea, H591 so that the boat H2803 was likely H7665 to be broken.
5 H4419 Then the mariners H3372 were afraid, H2199 and cried H376 every man H430 unto his god, H2904 and cast forth H3627 the wares H591 that were in the boat H3220 into the sea, H7043 to lighten H3124 it of them. But Jonah H3381 was gone down H3411 into the sides H5600 of the boat; H7901 and he lay, H7290 and was fast asleep.
6 H7227 So the shipmaster H7126 came H559 to him, and said H7290 unto him, What mean you, O sleeper? H6965 arise, H7121 call H430 upon your God, H430 if so be that God H6245 will think H6 upon us, that we perish not.
7 H559 And they said H376 every one H7453 to his fellow, H3212 Come, H5307 and let us cast H1486 lots, H3045 that we may know H7945 for whose cause H7451 this evil H5307 is upon us. So they cast H1486 lots, H1486 and the lot H5307 fell H3124 upon Jonah.
8 H559 Then said H5046 they unto him, Tell H7451 us, we pray you, for whose cause this evil H4399 is upon us; What is your occupation? H370 and from where H935 come H776 you? what is your country? H5971 and of what people are you?
9 H559 And he said H5680 unto them, I am a Hebrew; H3373 and I fear H3068 the Lord, H430 the God H8064 of heaven, H6213 which has made H3220 the sea H3004 and the dry land.
10 H582 Then were the men H1419 exceedingly H3372 afraid, H559 and said H6213 unto him, Why have you done H582 this? For the men H3045 knew H1272 that he fled H6440 from the presence H3068 of the Lord, H5046 because he had told them.
11 H559 Then said H6213 they unto him, What shall we do H3220 unto you, that the sea H8367 may be calm H3220 unto us? for the sea H1980 done, H5590 and was tempestuous.
12 H559 And he said H5375 unto them, Take me up, H2904 and cast me forth H3220 into the sea; H3220 so shall the sea H8367 be calm H3045 unto you: for I know H7945 that for my sake H1419 this great H5591 storm is upon you.
13 H582 Nevertheless the men H2864 rowed hard H7725 to bring H3004 it to the land; H3201 but they could H3220 not: for the sea H1980 done, H5590 and was tempestuous against them.
14 H7121 Therefore they cried H3068 unto the Lord, H559 and said, H577 We beg you, H3068 O Lord, H6 we beg you, let us not perish H376 for this man's H5315 life, H5414 and lay H5355 not upon us innocent H1818 blood: H3068 for you, O Lord, H6213 have done H2654 as it pleased you.
15 H5375 So they took up H3124 Jonah, H2904 and cast him forth H3220 into the sea: H3220 and the sea H5975 ceased H2197 from her raging.
16 H582 Then the men H3372 feared H3068 the Lord H1419 exceedingly, H2076 and offered H2077 a sacrifice H3068 unto the Lord, H5087 and made H5088 vows.
