约拿书 1:1-17

约拿违背耶和华

1耶和华对亚米太的儿子约拿说: 2“你起来前往尼尼微大城,大声警告那里的居民,因为他们的罪恶滔天,已经达到我面前。” 3可是,约拿却起身逃往他施,想躲避耶和华。他到了约帕港,看见一艘要开往他施的船,就付了船费,上了船,想和众人一起去他施,好躲避耶和华。

4然而,耶和华使海面起了狂风,滔天巨浪几乎把船打成碎片。 5水手们非常害怕,纷纷呼求自己的神,又把船上的货物全都抛进海里,以减轻重量。这时候,约拿已下到底舱,躺在那里呼呼大睡。 6船长来到约拿身边对他说:“你这个人,怎么这时候还在睡觉!快起来祈求你的神吧,也许你的神会怜悯我们,饶我们一命。”

7后来,船上的人彼此商量说:“来,我们抽签,看看这场灾难是谁惹来的。”于是他们就抽签,结果抽中了约拿8众人问他:“请告诉我们,这场灾难是谁惹来的?你是做什么的?从哪里来?是哪一国、哪一族的人?” 9约拿回答说:“我是希伯来人,我敬畏耶和华,祂是创造海洋陆地、掌管诸天的上帝。” 10之后,他就把怎样逃避耶和华的事告诉他们。众人知道后,万分恐惧,问他:“你怎么做出这种事?”

11那时,风浪越来越大,他们便对约拿说:“我们要怎样处置你,才能使风浪平静呢?” 12约拿对他们说:“我知道这场风暴是因我而起的,你们把我抬起来抛进海里,风浪自然会平静。” 13然而船上的人还是拚命划船,希望把船划向岸边,可是没有成功,因为风浪实在太大了。 14他们只好呼求耶和华,说:“耶和华啊,求你不要因这个人的性命而毁灭我们,不要因我们杀害无辜的人而怪罪我们,因为你耶和华按自己的旨意行事。” 15然后他们把约拿抬起来抛进海里,狂风巨浪立刻平静了。 16众人都极其敬畏耶和华,向祂献祭,并且许愿。

17耶和华安排了一条大鱼,把约拿吞下,他在鱼腹里度过三天三夜。

31:3 Thab 139:7; Josh 19:46; Thaam 4:13No Jona agĩũkĩra nĩguo orĩre Jehova, akĩerekera Tarishishi. Agĩikũrũka nginya Jopa na agĩkorerera marikabu yathiiaga Tarishishi. Aarĩkia kũrĩha thogora wa rũgendo, akĩingĩra marikabu nĩguo athiĩ Tarishishi, orĩre Jehova.

41:4 Thab 107:23-26; Atũm 27:18-19No rĩrĩ, Jehova akĩrehe rũhuho rũnene kũu iria-inĩ, gũkĩgĩa kĩhuhũkanio kĩnene mũno, hakuhĩ marikabu ĩyo yunĩkange. 5Atwari ayo othe makĩmaka na o mũndũ agĩkaĩra ngai yake; magĩcooka magĩikia mĩrigo iria-inĩ, nĩgeetha marikabu ĩhũthe.

No Jona nĩaikũrũkĩte kũu marikabu thĩinĩ, na agakoma toro mũnene. 61:6 Jon 3:8; Thab 107:28Tondũ ũcio mũnene wa marikabu agĩthiĩ harĩ we, akĩmũũria atĩrĩ, “Wee ũngĩhota gũkoma atĩa? Ũkĩra ũkaĩre ngai yaku! No gũkorwo yahota gũtũigua twage gũthira.”

10Ũndũ ũcio ũkĩmeekĩra guoya, makĩmũũria atĩrĩ, “Nĩ atĩa wĩkĩte?” (Nĩmamenyete atĩ nĩ kũũra ooragĩra Jehova, tondũ nĩameerĩte ũguo.)

13No andũ acio makĩĩrutanĩria mũno gũcookia marikabu yao hũgũrũrũ-inĩ cia iria. No makĩremwo, nĩgũkorwo iria nĩrĩakĩrĩrĩirie kũhuhũkania makĩria ma ũrĩa rĩarĩ mbere. 141:14 Gũcook 21:8; Dan 4:35Nao magĩkaĩra Jehova makiuga atĩrĩ, “Twagũthaitha Wee Jehova, ndũkareke tũkue nĩ ũndũ wa muoyo wa mũndũ ũyũ. Ndũgatũcookererie mahĩtia ma kũũraga mũndũ ũtehĩtie, nĩgũkorwo Wee Jehova, wĩkĩte ũrĩa wonete arĩ wega.” 151:15 Luk 8:24Makĩoya Jona makĩmũikia iria-inĩ, narĩo iria rĩu rĩahurutanaga rĩkĩhoorera. 16Mona ũguo andũ acio magĩĩtigĩra Jehova mũno; na makĩrutĩra Jehova igongona, na makĩĩhĩta mĩĩhĩtwa mbere yake.
