CLV(i) 12 And Jonah is saying to them, Lift me up and cast me forth into the sea, and the sea will be calm for you, for I am knowing that it is on my account that this great tempest is coming on you." 13 Yet the men are tugging hard to turn back to the dry land, yet they cannot, for the sea is running and tempestuous against them." 14 Then they are calling to Yahweh and saying, Oh Yahweh, pray, we must not perish for the soul of this man. And You must not lay on us innocent blood, for You, Yahweh, just as You incline, You do." 15 And they are lifting Jonah and casting him forth into the sea. And the sea is standing still from its turbulence.
