(this is a scan from the exact, authentic, original 1611 'HE' King James Bible)

1 Now the word of the Lord came vnto Ionah the sonne of Amittai, saying,

2 Arise, goe to Nineueh that great citie, and cry against it: for their wickednes is come vp before me.

3 But Ionah rose vp to flee vnto Tarshish, from the presence of the Lord, and went downe to Ioppa, and he found a ship going to Tarshish: so he payed the fare thereof, and went downe into it, to goe with them vnto Tarshish from the presence of the Lord.

4 But the Lord sent out a great winde into the sea, and there was a mightie tempest in the sea, so that the ship was like to be broken.

5 Then the Mariners were afraid, and cried euery man vnto his god, and cast foorth the wares that were in the ship, into the sea, to lighten it of them: but Ionah was gone downe into the sides of the ship, and hee lay, and was fast asleepe.

6 So the shipmaster came to him, and said vnto him; What meanest thou, O sleeper? Arise, call vpon thy God, if so be that God wil thinke vpon vs, that we perish not.

7 And they said euery one to his fellow; Come, and let vs cast lots, that we may know for whose cause this euil is vpon vs. So they cast lots, and the lot fell vpon Ionah.

8 Then said they vnto him, Tel vs, we pray thee, for whose cause this euill is vpon vs: What is thine occupation? and whence commest thou? What is thy countrey? and of what people art thou?

9 And hee said vnto them, I am an Hebrew, and I feare the Lord the God of heauen, which hath made the sea, and the dry land.

10 Then were the men exceedingly afraid, and saide vnto him; Why hast thou done this? (for the men knew that he fled from the presence of the Lord, because he had told them.)

11 Then said they vnto him, What shall we doe vnto thee, that the sea may be calme vnto vs? (for the sea wrought and was tempestuous.)

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.

This helped me a lot- thank you God for saving.

 


Leon Katz's Jonah Chapter 1 comment on 6/02/2014, 5:00am...

Gladwin Jonah was from Gath Hepher, Gath Hepher was three miles north of Nazareth in lower Galilee, therefore Jonah was a Galilean. During this time of Jonah, the nation of Isreal enjoyed such prosperity that they developed selfish nationalistic attitudes. Even Jonah was affected by this narrow minded spirit. Prompting God to having teach His chosen servant a series of important life lessons.. God is of no respect of person when it comes to mercy and the forgiveness of sin.

Where did Jonah come from when God sent him?

 


Jean's Jonah Chapter 1 comment about verse 17 on 5/02/2014, 7:23pm...

Jonah chapter 1 17. This is were the word prepared comes in. God foreseen Jonah 's disobedience and made sure that the digestive system of the whale would not consumed him.

 


Jackie Garcia's Jonah Chapter 1 comment on 2/23/2014, 10:23am...

God sends the storm because he loves you

 


Josephine's Jonah Chapter 1 comment on 2/14/2014, 7:31am...

From the start God called Jonah to go to the city of Nineveh to preach to the people about their sins He disobeyed God and went his disobedient way God sent a big fish to gulp him up I think this was an eye opener for Jonah to give him a chance to understand that we cannot hide from God

 


Roger N. Frey's Jonah Chapter 1 comment about verse 5 on 2/05/2014, 11:44am...

"each man cried to his own god." This sounds like the common 'foxhole conversion' syndrome. These men were just common sailors so often known and caricatured as blasphemers profane to excess, but here they were reduced to religious expression, no longer a unit in coarse talking. Each one became as an individual expressing his extreme fear and calling to his own God, whether a rabbits foot or
lucky medallion, an image of some animal carried in their sea bag. They each had their idea of a god to call on BUT they had n real confidence it it. They had an immediate impression in the presence of Jonah that he had the real thing and he wasn't calling, he was running even before they were in any trouble.

Abel D. Guah's Jonah Chapter 1 comment on 2/04/2014, 7:06am...

Just how Jonah suffered the consequence of his disobedience in the belly of the fish, so, there coming a day when sinners will suffer the consequence of their sins in the belly of the Lake of Fire forever.
