    2Sa 24:17 Joh 11:50

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:12

    El les respondió: Tomadme, y echadme al mar, y el mar se os aquietará; porque yo sé que por mí ha venido esta gran tempestad sobre vosotros.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Jonah 1:12

    Verse 12. I know that for my
    sake] I am not worthy to live; throw me overboard. God will not quiet the storm till I am cast out of the ship. Here was deep compunction; and honest avowal of sin; and a justification of the displeasure which God had now manifested.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 12. And he said unto them, take me up, and cast me forth into the
    sea , etc.] This he said not as choosing rather to die than to go to Nineveh; or as having overheard the men say that they would cast him into the sea, as Aben Ezra suggests, greatly to the prejudice of the prophet’s character; but as being truly sensible of his sin, and that he righteously deserved to die such a death; and in love to the lives of innocent men, that they might be saved, and not perish, through his default; and as a prophet, knowing this to be the mind and will of God, he cheerfully and in faith submits to it, with a presence of mind and courage suitable to his character. It was not fit he should leap into the sea and destroy himself; but that he should die by the hand of justice, of which the shipmaster and the ship’s crew were the proper executioners: so shall the sea be calm unto you ; or “silent”, as before; it will cease from its roaring, and do no further hurt and damage: for I know that for my sake this great tempest [is] upon you ; for the sin he had committed in fleeing from God, this storm was raised and continued; nor could it go off till they had done what he had directed them to; there was no other way of being clear of it. In this Jonah was a type of Christ, who willingly gave himself to suffer and die, that he might appease divine wrath, satisfy justice, and save men; only with this difference, Jonah suffered for his own sins, Christ for the sins of others; Jonah to endured a storm he himself had raised by his sins, Christ to endure a storm others had raised by their sins.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 8-12 - Jonah gave an account of his
    religion, for that was his business. We may hope that he told with sorrow and shame, justifying God, condemnin himself, and explaining to the mariners what a great God Jehovah is They said to him, Why hast thou done this? If thou fearest the God tha made the sea and the dry land, why wast thou such a fool as to thin thou couldst flee from his presence? If the professors of religion d wrong, they will hear it from those who make no such profession. When sin has raised a storm, and laid us under the tokens of God' displeasure, we must consider what is to be done to the sin that raise the storm. Jonah uses the language of true penitents, who desire tha none but themselves may fare the worse for their sins and follies Jonah sees this to be the punishment of his iniquity, he accepts it and justifies God in it. When conscience is awakened, and a stor raised, nothing will turn it into a calm but parting with the sin tha caused the disturbance. Parting with our money will not pacify the conscience, the Jonah must be thrown overboard.
