1 És lõn az Úrnak szava Jónáshoz, az Amittai fiához, mondván:

2 Kelj fel, menj Ninivébe, a nagy városba, és kiálts ellene, mert gonoszságuk felhatolt elémbe!

3 És felkele Jónás, hogy Tarsisba szaladna az Úr elõl. Leméne azért Jáfóba, és talála ott egy hajót, a mely méne Tarsisba, és megadván a hajóbért, beszálla abba, hogy Tarsisba menne velök az Úr színe elõl.

4 Az Úr pedig nagy szelet bocsáta a tengerre, és nagy vihar lõn a tengeren, és a hajó már-már töredezik vala.

5 Megfélemlének azért a hajósok és kiáltának, kiki az õ istenéhez, és a hajóban lévõ holmit a tengerbe hányák, hogy könnyítsenek magukon. Jónás pedig leméne a hajó aljába, és lefeküdt és elaludt.

6 De hozzáméne a kormányos mester, és mondá néki: Mi lelt, te nagy alvó? Kelj fel, kiálts a te Istenedhez; hát ha gondol velünk az Isten, és nem veszünk el!

7 Egymásnak pedig ezt mondák: Jertek, vessünk sorsot, hogy megtudhassuk: mi miatt van rajtunk e veszedelem? És sorsot vetének, és a sors Jónásra esék.

8 Mondák azért néki: Kérünk, beszéld el nékünk: mi miatt van rajtunk e veszedelem? Mi a te foglalkozásod és honnan jösz? Melyik a te hazád és miféle népbõl való vagy te?

9 És monda nékik: Héber vagyok én, és az Urat, az egek Istenét félem én, a ki a tengert és a szárazt teremtette.

10 És megfélemlének az emberek nagy félelemmel, és mondák néki: Mit cselekedtél? Mert megtudták azok az emberek, hogy az Úr színe elõl fut, mivelhogy elbeszélé nékik.

11 Mondák azután néki: Mit cselekedjünk veled, hogy a tenger megcsendesedjék ellenünk? Mert a tenger háborgása növekedék.

12 Õ pedig monda nékik: Fogjatok meg és vessetek engem a tengerbe, és megcsendesedik a tenger ellenetek; mert tudom én, hogy miattam van ez a nagy vihar rajtatok.

13 És erõlködtek azok az emberek, hogy visszajussanak a szárazra; de nem tudtak, mert a tenger háborgása növekedék ellenök.

14 Kiáltának azért az Úrhoz, és mondák: Kérünk Uram, kérünk, ne veszszünk el ez ember lelkéért, és ne háríts reánk ártatlan vért; mert te, Uram, úgy cselekedtél, a mint akartad!

15 És felragadák Jónást és beveték õt a tengerbe, és megszûnék a tenger az õ háborgásától.

16 Azok az emberek pedig nagy félelemmel félék az Urat, és áldozattal áldozának az Úrnak, és fogadásokat fogadának.


Exploring the Meaning of Jónás 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.
