The LORD hurled a great wind on the sea and there was a great storm on the sea so that the ship was about to break up.
Then the men became extremely frightened and they said to him, "How could you do this?" For the men knew that he was fleeing from the presence of the LORD , because he had told them.
He said to them, "Pick me up and throw me into the sea. Then the sea will become calm for you, for I know that on account of me this great storm has come upon you."
Then the men feared the LORD greatly, and they offered a sacrifice to the LORD and made vows.
