1 Y vino palabra del SEÑOR a Jonás, hijo de Amitai, diciendo:

2 Levántate, y ve a Nínive, ciudad grande, y pregona contra ella; porque su maldad ha subido delante de mí.

3 Y Jonás se levantó para huir de la presencia del SEÑOR a Tarsis, y descendió a Jope; y halló un navío que partía para Tarsis; y pagándole su pasaje entró en él, para irse con ellos a Tarsis huyendo de la presencia del SEÑOR.

4 Mas el SEÑOR hizo levantar un gran viento en el mar, y se hizo una gran tempestad en el mar, que la nave pensó ser quebrada.

5 Y los marineros tuvieron temor, y cada uno llamaba a su dios; y echaron al mar los vasos que llevaban en la nave, para descargarla de ellos. Jonás, sin embargo, había descendido a los costados de la nave, y se había echado a dormir.

6 Y el maestre de la nave se llegó a él, y le dijo: ¿Qué tienes, dormilón? Levántate, y clama a tu Dios; por ventura él tendrá compasión de nosotros, y no pereceremos.

7 Y dijeron cada uno a su compañero: Venid, y echemos suertes, para saber por quién nos ha venido este mal. Y echaron suertes, y la suerte cayó sobre Jonás.

8 Entonces le dijeron ellos: Decláranos ahora por qué nos ha venido este mal. ¿Qué oficio tienes, y de dónde vienes? ¿Cuál es tu tierra, y de qué pueblo eres?

9 Y él les respondió: Hebreo soy, y temo al SEÑOR, Dios de los cielos, que hizo el mar y la tierra seca.

10 Y aquellos hombres temieron sobremanera, y le dijeron: ¿Por qué has hecho esto? Porque ellos entendieron que huía de delante del SEÑOR, porque él se lo había declarado.

11 Y le dijeron: ¿Qué te haremos, para que el mar se nos aquiete? Porque el mar iba a más , y se embravecía.

12 El les respondió: Tomadme, y echadme al mar, y el mar se os aquietará; porque yo sé que por mí ha venido esta gran tempestad sobre vosotros.

13 Y aquellos hombres trabajaron por tornar la nave a tierra; mas no pudieron, porque el mar iba a más , y se embravecía sobre ellos.

14 Y clamaron al SEÑOR, y dijeron: Te rogamos ahora, SEÑOR, que no perezcamos nosotros por el alma de este hombre, ni pongas sobre nosotros la sangre inocente; porque tú, SEÑOR, has hecho como has querido.

15 Y tomaron a Jonás, y lo echaron al mar; y el mar se aquietó de su furia.

16 Y temieron aquellos hombres al SEÑOR con gran temor; y ofrecieron sacrificio al SEÑOR, y prometieron votos.

17 Mas el SEÑOR había aparejado un gran pez que tragase a Jonás; y estuvo Jonás en el vientre del pez tres días y tres noches.



Exploring the Meaning of Jonás 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.
