But Jonah had gone down into the innermost parts of the ship, and he was laying down, and was fast asleep.
So the ship master came to him, and said to him, “What do you mean, sleeper? Arise, call on your God!
Maybe your God will notice us, so that we won’t perish.”
They all said to each other, “Come! Let’s cast lots, that we may know who is responsible for this evil that is on us.”
So they cast lots, and the lot fell on Jonah.
Then they asked him, “Tell us, please, for whose cause this evil is on us. What is your occupation?
Where do you come from? What is your country? Of what people are you?”
