Wesley's Notes for Jonah 1:16

1:16 Feared the Lord - Perhaps as Jonah's casting over - board was a type of Christ's death, so the effect it had upon the mariners might be a type of the conversion of the Heathen from idols unto God. Made vows - Probably they vowed, they would ever worship him whom Jonah preached, the Creator of heaven and earth.

Men, gentiles sacrificed Jonah, throwing him out of the boat. Jonah feared the LORD and started praying, even the gentiles that were in the boat started praying the God of Jonah, after they threw him out of the boat. So the mariners witnessed the storm has ceased, so they vowed and started praying.
