“So they tooke vp Ionah, and cast him foorth into the sea, and the sea ceased from her raging.”
King James Version (KJV)
12. And he said vnto them, Take me vp, and cast mee foorth into the sea; so shall the sea be calme vnto you: for I know that for my sake this great tempest is vpon you. 13. Neuerthelesse 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 vnto the Lord, and said, We beseech thee, O Lord, We beseech thee, let vs not perish for this mans life, and lay not vpon vs, innocent blood: for thou, O Lord, hast done as it pleased thee. 15. So they tooke vp Ionah, and cast him foorth into the sea, and the sea ceased from her raging. 16. Then the men feared the Lord exceedingly, and offered a sacrifice vnto the Lord, and made vowes. 17. ¶ Now the Lord had prepared a great fish to swallow vp Ionah, and Ionah was in the belly of the fish three dayes, and three nights.
