The Prophete Ionas With An Introduccion by William Tyndale

The first Chapter.

The worde of the lorde came vn to the prophete Ionas [the] sonne of Amithai sayenge: ryse & gett the to Niniue that greate citie & preach vn to them/ how that theyr wekednesse is come vpp before me.

¶ And Ionas made him ready to fle to Tharsis from the presens of [the] lorde/ & gatt hym downe to Ioppe/ and founde there a sheppe ready to goo to Tharsis/ & payed his fare/ & went aborde/ to goo with them to Tharsis from the presens of the lorde.

¶ But [the] lorde hurled a greate winde in to [the] se/ so that there was a myghtie tempest in the se: in so moch [that] the shepp was lyke to goo in peces. And the mariners were afrayed & cried euery man vn to his god/ & cast out [the] goodes [that] were in [the] sheppe in to [the] se/ to lighten it of them. But Ionas gatt him vnder the hatches & layed him downe and slombrede. And [the] master of the sheppe came to him & sayd vn to him/ why slomberest thou? vpp! & call vn to thy god/ that God maye thinke on vs/ that we perish not.

¶ And they sayde one to a nother/ come & lett vs cast lottes/ to know for whose cause we are thus troublede. And they cast lottes. And [the] lott fell vppon Ionas.

¶ Then they said vnto him/ tel vs for whose cause we are thus trowbled: what is thine occupacion/ whence comest thou/ how is thy contre called/ & of what nacion art thou?

¶ And he answered them/ I am an Ebrue: & the lord God of heuen which made both se and drie land/ I feare. Then were the men exceadingly afrayd & sayd vn to him/ why diddest thou so? For they knew that he was fled from the presens of the lorde/ because he had told them.

¶ Then they sayd vn to hym/ what shall we doo vnto the/ that the se maye cease from trowblinge vs? For the se wrought & was trowblous. And he answered them/ take me and cast me in to the se/ & so shall it lett you be in reste: for I wotte/ is is for my sake/ that this greate tempest is come oppon you. Neuerthelesse the men assayed wyth rowenge to bringe the sheppe to lande: but it wold not be/ because the se so wrought & was so trowblous agenst them. Wherefore they cried vn to the lorde & sayd: O lorde latt vs not perih for this mans deeth/ nether laye innocent bloud vn to oure charge: for thou lorde even as thy pleasure was/ so thou hast done.

¶ And then they toke Ionas/ & cast him in to [the] se/ & the se left ragynge. And [the] men feared the lorde excedingly: & sacrificed sacrififice vn to the lorde: and vowed vowes.
