24 Jonah 1 – 4 God of Compassion

25 Scripture Reading 1 The word of the LORD came to Jonah son of Amittai: 2 Go to the great city of Nineveh and preach against it, because its wickedness has come up before me. 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. Jonah 1:1-9

26 Scripture Reading 4 Then the LORD sent a great wind on the sea, and such a violent storm arose that the ship threatened to break up. 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. Jonah 1:1-9

27 Scripture Reading But Jonah had gone below deck, where he lay down and fell into a deep sleep. 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, and we will not perish. Jonah 1:1-9

28 Scripture Reading 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. 8 So they asked him, Tell us, who is responsible for making all this trouble for us? What do you do? Where do you come from? What is your country? From what people are you? Jonah 1:1-9

29 Scripture Reading 9 He answered, I am a Hebrew and I worship the LORD, the God of heaven, who made the sea and the land. Jonah 1:1-9

30 14 Then they cried to the LORD, O LORD, please do not let us die for taking this mans life. Do not hold us accountable for killing an innocent man, for you, O LORD, have done as you pleased. Jonah 1:14

31 To the roots of the mountains I sank down; the earth beneath barred me in forever. But you brought my life up from the pit, O LORD my God. Jonah 2:6

32 But I, with a song of thanksgiving, will sacrifice to you. What I have vowed I will make good. Salvation comes from the LORD. Jonah 2:9
