Jonah 1

CJB 1 The word of ADONAI came to Yonah the son of Amitai: NIV 1 The word of the LORD came to Jonah son of Amittai: CJB 2 "Set out for the great city of Ninveh, and proclaim to it that their wickedness has come to my attention." NIV 2 “Go to the great city of Nineveh and preach against it, because its wickedness has come up before me.” CJB 3 But Yonah, in order to get away from ADONAI, prepared to escape to Tarshish. He went down to Yafo, found a ship headed for Tarshish, paid the fare and went aboard, intending to travel with them to Tarshish and get away from ADONAI. NIV 3 But Jonah ran away from the LORD and headed for Tarshish. He went down to Joppa, where he found a ship bound for that port. After paying the fare, he went aboard and sailed for Tarshish to flee from the LORD. CJB 4 However, ADONAI let loose over the sea a violent wind, which created such stormy conditions that the ship threatened to break to pieces. NIV 4 Then the LORD sent a great wind on the sea, and such a violent storm arose that the ship threatened to break up. CJB 5 The sailors were frightened, and each cried out to his god. They threw the cargo overboard to make the ship easier for them to control. Meanwhile, Yonah had gone down below into the hold, where he lay, fast asleep. NIV 5 All the sailors were afraid and each cried out to his own god. And they threw the cargo into the sea to lighten the ship. But Jonah had gone below deck, where he lay down and fell into a deep sleep. CJB 6 The ship's captain found him and said to him, "What do you mean by sleeping? Get up! Call on your god! Maybe the god will remember us, and we won't die." NIV 6 The captain went to him and said, “How can you sleep? Get up and call on your god! Maybe he will take notice of us so that we will not perish.” CJB 7 Then they said to each other, "Come, let's draw lots to find out who is to blame for this calamity." They drew lots, and Yonah was singled out. NIV 7 Then the sailors said to each other, “Come, let us cast lots to find out who is responsible for this calamity.” They cast lots and the lot fell on Jonah. CJB 8 They said to him, "Tell us now, why has this calamity come upon us? What work do you do? Where are you from? What is your country? Which is your people?" NIV 8 So they asked him, “Tell us, who is responsible for making all this trouble for us? What kind of work do you do? Where do you come from? What is your country? From what people are you?” CJB 9 He answered them, "I am a Hebrew; and I fear ADONAI, the God of heaven, who made both the sea and the dry land." NIV 9 He answered, “I am a Hebrew and I worship the LORD, the God of heaven, who made the sea and the dry land.” CJB 10 At this the men grew very afraid and said to him, "What is this that you have done?" For the men knew he was trying to get away from ADONAI, since he had told them. NIV 10 This terrified them and they asked, “What have you done?” (They knew he was running away from the LORD, because he had already told them so.) CJB 11 They asked him, "What should we do to you, so that the sea will be calm for us?" - for the sea was getting rougher all the time. NIV 11 The sea was getting rougher and rougher. So they asked him, “What should we do to you to make the sea calm down for us?” CJB 12 "Pick me up," he told them, "and throw me into the sea. Then the sea will be calm for you; because I know it's my fault that this terrible storm has come over you." NIV 12 “Pick me up and throw me into the sea,” he replied, “and it will become calm. I know that it is my fault that this great storm has come upon you.” CJB 13 Nevertheless, the men rowed hard, trying to reach the shore. But they couldn't, because the sea kept growing wilder against them. NIV 13 Instead, the men did their best to row back to land. But they could not, for the sea grew even wilder than before. CJB 14 Finally they cried to ADONAI, "Please, ADONAI, please! Don't let us perish for causing the death of this man, and don't hold us to account for shedding innocent blood; because you, ADONAI, have done what you saw fit." NIV 14 Then they cried out to the LORD, “Please, LORD, do not let us die for taking this man’s life. Do not hold us accountable for killing an innocent man, for you, LORD, have done as you pleased.” CJB 15 Then they picked up Yonah and threw him into the sea, and the sea stopped raging. NIV 15 Then they took Jonah and threw him overboard, and the raging sea grew calm. CJB 16 Seized with great fear of ADONAI, they offered a sacrifice to ADONAI and made vows. NIV 16 At this the men greatly feared the LORD, and they offered a sacrifice to the LORD and made vows to him. CJB 17 ADONAI prepared a huge fish to swallow Yonah; and Yonah was in the belly of the fish for three days and three nights. NIV 17 Now the LORD provided a huge fish to swallow Jonah, and Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights.
