But 1the LORD hurled a great wind upon the sea, and there was a mighty tempest on the sea, so that the ship threatened 2to break up.
Then the mariners were afraid, and 3each cried out to his god. And 4they hurled the cargo that was in the ship into the sea to lighten it for them. But Jonah had gone down into the inner part of the ship and had lain down and was fast asleep.
So the captain came and said to him, "What do you mean, you sleeper? Arise, 5call out to your god! 6Perhaps the god will give a thought to us, that we may not perish."
