1 Joonalle, Amittain pojalle, tuli tämä Herran sana:

2 "Nouse, mene Niiniveen, siihen suureen kaupunkiin, ja saarnaa sitä vastaan; sillä heidän pahuutensa on noussut minun kasvojeni eteen".

3 Mutta Joona nousi paetaksensa Tarsiiseen Herran kasvojen edestä ja meni alas Jaafoon ja löysi laivan, joka oli lähtevä Tarsiiseen. Ja hän suoritti laivamaksun ja astui siihen mennäkseen heidän kanssansa Tarsiiseen, pois Herran kasvojen edestä.

4 Mutta Herra heitti suuren tuulen merelle, niin että merellä nousi suuri myrsky ja laiva oli särkymäisillään.

5 Niin merimiehet pelkäsivät ja huusivat avuksi itsekukin jumalaansa. Ja he heittivät mereen tavarat, mitä laivassa oli, keventääkseen sitä. Mutta Joona oli mennyt alas laivan pohjalle ja pannut maata, ja hän nukkui raskaasti.

6 Niin laivuri tuli hänen luoksensa ja sanoi hänelle: "Mitäs nukut? Nouse ja huuda jumalaasi. Ehkäpä se jumala muistaa meitä, niin ettemme huku."

7 Ja he sanoivat toisillensa: "Tulkaa, heittäkäämme arpaa, saadaksemme tietää, kenen tähden tämä onnettomuus on meille tullut". Mutta kun he heittivät arpaa, lankesi arpa Joonalle.

8 Niin he sanoivat hänelle: "Ilmoita meille, kenen tähden tämä onnettomuus on meille tullut. Mikä on toimesi ja mistä tulet? Mikä on sinun maasi ja mistä kansasta olet?"

9 Hän vastasi heille: "Minä olen hebrealainen, ja minä pelkään Herraa, taivaan Jumalaa, joka on tehnyt meren ja kuivan maan".

10 Niin miehet peljästyivät suuresti ja sanoivat hänelle: "Miksi olet tehnyt näin?" Sillä miehet tiesivät, että hän oli pakenemassa Herran kasvojen edestä; hän oli näet ilmaissut sen heille.

11 He sanoivat hänelle: "Mitä on meidän tehtävä sinulle, että meri tulisi meille tyveneksi?" Sillä meri myrskysi myrskyämistänsä.

12 Hän vastasi heille: "Ottakaa minut ja heittäkää minut mereen, niin meri teille tyventyy. Sillä minä tiedän, että tämä suuri myrsky on tullut teille minun tähteni."

13 Miehet soutivat päästäkseen jälleen kuivalle maalle, mutta eivät voineet, sillä meri myrskysi vastaan myrskyämistänsä.

14 Ja he huusivat Herraa ja sanoivat: "Voi, Herra, älä anna meidän hukkua tämän miehen hengen tähden äläkä lue syyksemme viatonta verta, sillä sinä, Herra, teet, niinkuin sinulle otollista on".

15 Sitten he ottivat Joonan ja heittivät hänet mereen, ja meri asettui raivostansa.

16 Ja miehet pelkäsivät suuresti Herraa, uhrasivat Herralle teurasuhrin ja tekivät lupauksia.

17 (H2:1) Mutta Herra toimitti suuren kalan nielaisemaan Joonan. Ja Joona oli kalan sisässä kolme päivää ja kolme yötä.


Exploring the Meaning of Jonah 1      

Napsal(a) Helen Kennedy

Billy Graham once said that the whole of Jesus' ministry could be summed up in two words; Come and Go.

COME to me, all who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. (Matthew 11:28)

GO and make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:19)

In the beginning of the Book of Jonah, chapter 1, we have a story about what happens when you do the first step, but not the second. Jonah was supposed to go preach the gospel -- the monotheistic worship of Jehovah -- to the people of Ninevah. Swedenborg tells us that the verses in Jonah 1:1-2 are about the people of Israel, who had received the Word - but wouldn't go out and share it amongst the nations.

In Jonah 1:4-6, peoples' spiritual knowledge declines, and begins to perish. It happens both in the land of Israel, and in the wider world.

Here are some key symbolic elements in this account:

- A ship represents the knowledge of good and truth useful for life (a church). (Apocalypse Revealed 406)

- A sea, storm and wind represents Hell and its influence. (Apocalypse Revealed 343[4])

- To be asleep means to be deluded by our own glory. (Arcana Coelestia 147)

In Jonah 1:7-9, the people who lived outside the land of Israel had some perception that their own spiritual knowledge was lacking, and they it had led to a collapse of their spiritual state. As Swedenborg puts it, "the state of the church was perverted among themselves".

When they perceived this, they also came to understand that they needed to reject falsified truths that they were getting from the Jewish church at that time, and pray to the Lord for salvation, to try to restore real worship, real spiritual love and wisdom.

Drawing lots, or playing a game of chance, represents pulling truths apart. (Arcana Coelestia 9942.13)

In Jonah 1:10-13, throwing Jonah into the sea represents the rejection of that hollowed-out church, to make way for a new church. Then, in Jonah 1:14-16, when the people in the boat pray unto the Lord for salvation -- it works! They are saved from foundering and drowning.

What's the takeaway for us? If we're getting false ideas from our neighbors, we need to perceive it, and stop. We need to identify our false beliefs, and reject them -- throw them into the sea. Then, we need to pray for salvation -- and then a new "church" can start in us, too, personally, with renewed spiritual life. And, when we come to the Lord, and experience spiritual "rest", then we can also go share our new true ideas and good loves with our neighbors -- coming, and going.

Here's a link to an interesting (audio) sermon on this chapter, by Rev. Todd Beiswenger.

Finally, here's a link to Rev. McCurdy's Study Guide for the Book of Jonah, which is available for free as a .pdf, for your use.
