Jonah 1
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1And the word of LORD JEHOVAH was upon Yonan, son of Matti, saying: 2”Arise, go to Nineva the great city and proclaim against it, because their evil has come up before me” 3And Yonan stood to flee to Tarshish from before LORD JEHOVAH and came down to Yoppa, and he found a ship that went into Tarshish, and he gave payment and came down to it to enter with them to Tarshish to flee from before LORD JEHOVAH

4And LORD JEHOVAH cast a great wind into the sea, and there was a great storm in the sea, and the ship being turned was to be broken to pieces 5And the sailors were afraid and they cried out, each man to his god, and they cast away the vessels of the ship into the sea that they would be clear of them, but Yonan had gone down by himself to the bottom of the ship and fell asleep 6And the High Sailor came to him and said to him: ’why are you sleeping? Arise, call to your God! Perhaps God will save us and we will not be destroyed!’

7And they said, each man to companion, ’come, we will cast lots and we will know because of whom this evil has come upon us, and they cast lots and the lot of Yonan came up 8And they said to him: ’Show us why this evil has come upon us! What is your work and from where are you, and what is your land and from which people are you?’ 9Yonan said to them: ‘I am a Hebrew and I worship LORD JEHOVAH, the God of Heaven who made the sea and the dry land’

10And those men were afraid with great fear and they said to him: ’what have you done?’, because those men knew that he fled from before LORD JEHOVAH

11And when he showed them, they were saying to him: ‘what shall we do to you and the sea will be still for us, because, behold, the sea is moving and disturbed against us?’ 12Yonan said to them: ‘pick me up and throw me into the sea, and the sea will be still for you, for I know that this great storm was upon you because of me!’ 13And those men fought to return to dry land, and they were not able, because the sea was moving and was violent against them 14And they called to LORD JEHOVAH and they said: ’Oh, LORD JEHOVAH, we will not be destroyed with the life of this man, and do not account innocent blood against us, because you are LORD JEHOVAH, and as you please you do!’

15And they picked up Yonan and they threw him into the sea, and the sea was calmed from its storms 16And those men feared with great fear before LORD JEHOVAH and they sacrificed sacrifices to LORD JEHOVAH and they vowed vows

17And LORD JEHOVAH prepared a great fish and it swallowed Yonan, and Yonan was in the intestines of the fish for three days and three nights
