    King James Bible - Jonah 1:13

    Nevertheless the men rowed hard to bring it to the land; but they could not: for the sea wrought, and was tempestuous against them.

    World English Bible

    Nevertheless the
    men rowed hard to get them back to the land; but they could not, for the sea grew more and more stormy against them.

    Douay-Rheims - Jonah 1:13

    And the
    men rowed hard to return to land, but they were not able: because the sea tossed and swelled upon them.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    Nevertheless the
    men rowed hard to bring it to the land; but they could not: for the sea wrought, and was tempestuous against them.

    Original Hebrew

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:13

    Y aquellos hombres trabajaron por tornar la nave a tierra; mas no pudieron, porque el mar iba a más , y se embravecía sobre ellos.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Jonah 1:13

    Verse 13. The
    men rowed hard] Were very unwilling to proceed to this extremity, and thought they would risk every thing rather than cast this disobedient prophet into the great deep.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 13. Nevertheless, the
    men rowed hard to bring [it] to the land , but they could not , etc.] Or, “they digged” f35 ; that is, the waters of the sea with their oars; not by casting anchor, as Abendana; they used all their skill and exerted all their strength; they laboured with all their might and main, as a man digs in a pit; they ploughed the ocean, and furrowed the sea, as the Latins speak, but all in vain; they rowed against wind and tide; God, his purposes and providence, were against them; and it was not possible for them to make land, and get the ship ashore, which they were desirous of, to save the life of Jonah, as well as their own; for, seeing him penitent, they had compassion on him; his character and profession as a prophet, the gravity of the man, the sedateness of his countenance, his openness of mind, and his willingness to die, wrought greatly upon the men, that they would fain have saved him if they could; and perhaps being Heathens, and not knowing thoroughly the nature of his offence, might think he did not deserve to die; but all their endeavours to save him were to no purpose: for the sea wrought, and was tempestuous against them ; it grew more and more so; the storm beat right against them, and drove them back faster than they came; so that it was impossible to stand against it.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 13-17 - The mariners rowed against
    wind and tide, the wind of God' displeasure, the tide of his counsel; but it is in vain to think of saving ourselves any other way than by destroying our sins. Eve natural conscience cannot but dread blood-guiltiness. And when we ar led by Providence God does what he pleases, and we ought to be satisfied, though it may not please us. Throwing Jonah into the sea pu an end to the storm. God will not afflict for ever, He will onl contend till we submit and turn from our sins. Surely these heathe mariners will rise up in judgment against many called Christians, wh neither offer prayers when in distress, nor thanksgiving for signa deliverances. The Lord commands all creatures, and can make any of the serve his designs of mercy to his people. Let us see this salvation of the Lord, and admire his power, that he could thus save a drowning man and his pity, that he would thus save one who was running from him, an had offended him. It was of the Lord's mercies that Jonah was no consumed. Jonah was alive in the fish three days and nights: to natur this was impossible, but to the God of nature all things are possible Jonah, by this miraculous preservation, was made a type of Christ; a our blessed Lord himself declared, Mt 12:40 __________________________________________________________________
