NASB — Jonah 1 — KJV

Jonah’s Disobedience

1 The word of the LORD came to aJonah the son of Amittai saying, 2 “Arise, go to aNineveh the great city and bcry against it, for their cwickedness has come up before Me.” 3 But Jonah rose up to flee to aTarshish bfrom the presence of the LORD. So he went down to cJoppa, found a ship which was going to Tarshish, paid the fare and went down into it to go with them to Tarshish from the presence of the LORD.

4 ¶ The aLORD hurled a great wind on the sea and there was a great storm on the sea so that the ship was about to Ibreak up. 5 Then the sailors became afraid and every man cried to ahis god, and they bthrew the Icargo which was in the ship into the sea to lighten [it] IIfor them. But Jonah had gone below into the hold of the ship, lain down and fallen sound asleep. 6 So the captain approached him and said, “How is it that you are sleeping? Get up, acall on your god. Perhaps [your] bgod will be concerned about us so that we will not perish.”

7 ¶ Each man said to his mate, “Come, let us acast lots so we may Ilearn on whose account this calamity [has struck] us.” So they cast lots and the blot fell on Jonah. 8 Then they said to him, “aTell us, now! On whose account [has] this calamity [struck] us? What is your boccupation? And where do you come from? What is your country? From what people are you?” 9 He said to them, “I am a aHebrew, and I bfear the LORD cGod of heaven who dmade the sea and the dry land.”

10 ¶ Then the men became extremely frightened and they said to him, “IHow could you do this?” For the men knew that he was afleeing from the presence of the LORD, because he had told them. 11 So they said to him, “What should we do to you that the sea may become calm Ifor us?”—for the sea was becoming increasingly stormy. 12 He said to them, “Pick me up and throw me into the sea. Then the sea will become calm Ifor you, for I know that aon account of me this great storm [has come] upon you.” 13 However, the men Irowed [desperately] to return to land but they could not, for the sea was becoming [even] stormier against them. 14 Then they called on the aLORD and said, “We earnestly pray, O LORD, do not let us perish on account of this man’s life and do not put innocent blood on us; for bYou, O LORD, have done as You have pleased.”

Jonah is sent to Nineveh, fleeth to Tarshish.

1 ¶ Now the word of the LORD came unto Jonah the son of Amittai, saying, 2 Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry against it; for their wickedness is come up before me. 3 But Jonah rose up to flee unto Tarshish from the presence of the LORD, and went down to Joppa; and he found a ship going to Tarshish: so he paid the fare thereof, and went down into it, to go with them unto Tarshish from the presence of the LORD.

He is bewrayed by a tempest,

4 ¶ But the LORD sent out a great wind into the sea, and there was a mighty tempest in the sea, so that the ship was like to be broken. 5 Then the mariners were afraid, and cried every man unto his god, and cast 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 was fast asleep. 6 So the shipmaster came to him, and said unto him, What meanest thou, O sleeper? arise, call upon thy God, if so be that God will think upon us, that we perish not. 7 And they said every one to his fellow, Come, and let us cast lots, that we may know for whose cause this evil [is] upon us. So they cast lots, and the lot fell upon Jonah. 8 Then said they unto him, Tell us, we pray thee, for whose cause this evil [is] upon us; What [is] thine occupation? and whence comest thou? what [is] thy country? and of what people [art] thou? 9 And he said unto them, I [am] an Hebrew; and I fear the LORD, the God of heaven, which hath made the sea and the dry [land]. 10 Then were the men exceedingly afraid, and said unto him, Why hast thou done this? For the men knew that he fled from the presence of the LORD, because he had told them.

thrown into the sea,

11 ¶ Then said they unto him, What shall we do unto thee, that the sea may be calm unto us? for the sea wrought, and was tempestuous. 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 for my sake this great tempest [is] upon you. 13 Nevertheless the men rowed hard to bring [it] to the land; but they could not: for the sea wrought, and was tempestuous against them. 14 Wherefore they cried unto the LORD, and said, We beseech thee, O LORD, we beseech thee, let us not perish for this man's life, and lay not upon us innocent blood: for thou, O LORD, hast done as it pleased thee. 15 So they took up Jonah, and cast him forth into the sea: and the sea ceased from her raging. 16 Then the men feared the LORD exceedingly, and offered a sacrifice unto the LORD, and made vows.
