Jonah 1:12-15

Darby(i) 12 And he said unto them, Take me up, and cast me forth into the sea; so shall the sea be calm unto you: for I know that because of me this great tempest is upon you. 13 But the men rowed hard to regain the land; but they could not; for the sea grew more and more tempestuous against them. 14 And they cried unto Jehovah and said, Ah, Jehovah, we beseech thee, let us not perish for this man`s life, and lay not upon us innocent blood: for thou, Jehovah, hast done as it pleased thee. 15 And they took up Jonah, and cast him forth into the sea: and the sea ceased from its raging.
