Jonah 1 ©
Jonah, sent by God to Nineveh, fleeth to Tarshish: he is overtaken by a storm, and discovered; thrown into the sea, and swallowed by a fish.
But Jonah erose up to fflee unto gTarshish from the hpresence of the LORD, and went down to iJoppa; and he found a ship going to jTarshish: so he paid the fare thereof, and went down into it, to go with them unto Tarshish from the presence of the LORD.
Then the mariners were afraid, and lcried every man unto his god, and mcast forth the wares that were in the ship into the sea, to lighten it of them. But Jonah was gone down into the sides of the ship; and he lay, and nwas fast asleep.
Wherefore they fcried unto the LORD, and said, We beseech thee, O LORD, we beseech thee, glet us not perish for this man's life, and lay not upon us innocent blood: for thou, hO LORD, hast done as it pleased thee.
