1 Ang salita nga ng Panginoon ay dumating kay Jonas na anak ni Amittai, na nagsasabi,

2 Bumangon ka, pumaroon ka sa Ninive, sa malaking bayang yaon, at humiyaw ka laban doon; sapagka't ang kanilang kasamaan ay umabot sa harap ko.

3 Nguni't si Jonas ay bumangon upang tumakas na patungo sa Tarsis mula sa harapan ng Panginoon; at siya'y lumusong sa Joppe, at nakasumpong ng sasakyan na patungo sa Tarsis: sa gayo'y nagbayad siya ng upa niyaon, at siya'y lumulan, upang yumaong kasama nila sa Tarsis mula sa harapan ng Panginoon.

4 Nguni't ang Panginoon ay nagpasapit ng malakas na hangin sa dagat, at nagkaroon ng malakas na unos sa dagat, na anopa't ang sasakyan ay halos masira.

5 Nang magkagayo'y nangatakot ang mga taong dagat at dumaing ang bawa't tao sa kanikaniyang dios; at kanilang inihagis sa dagat ang mga daladalahang nangasa sasakyan upang makapagpagaan sa kanila. Nguni't si Jonas ay bumaba sa pinakaloob na bahagi ng sasakyan; at siya'y nahiga at nakatulog ng mahimbing.

6 Sa gayo'y lumapit sa kaniya ang puno ng sasakyan, at sinabi sa kaniya, Ano ang inaakala mo, O matutulugin? bumangon ka, tumawag ka sa iyong Dios, baka sakaling alalahanin ng Dios tayo, upang huwag tayong mangamatay.

7 At sinabi ng bawa't isa sa kanila sa kaniyang kasama, Magsiparito kayo at tayo'y mangagsapalaran, upang ating maalaman kung dahil kanino dumating ang kasamaang ito sa atin. Sa gayo'y nangagsapalaran sila, at ang palad ay nahulog kay Jonas.

8 Nang magkagayo'y sinabi nila sa kaniya, Isinasamo namin sa iyo na iyong saysayin sa amin, kung dahil kanino dumating ang kasamaang ito sa atin; ano ang iyong hanap-buhay? at saan ka nanggaling? ano ang iyong lupain? at taga saang bayan ka?

9 At kaniyang sinabi sa kanila, Ako'y isang Hebreo; at ako'y natatakot sa Panginoon, sa Dios ng langit, na siyang gumawa ng dagat at ng tuyong lupain.

10 Nang magkagayo'y nangatakot na mainam ang mga tao, at sinabi sa kaniya, Ano itong iyong ginawa? Sapagka't talastas ng mga tao na siya'y tumatakas mula sa harapan ng Panginoon, sapagka't isinaysay niya sa kanila,

11 Nang magkagayo'y sinabi nila sa kaniya, Anong gagawin namin sa iyo, upang ang dagat ay tumahimik sa atin? sapagka't ang dagat ay lalo't lalong umuunos.

12 At sinabi niya sa kanila, Ako'y inyong buhatin, at ihagis ninyo ako sa dagat; sa gayo'y ang dagat ay tatahimik sa inyo: sapagka't talastas ko na dahil sa akin dumating ang malaking unos na ito sa inyo.

13 Gayon ma'y ang mga lalake ay nagsisigaod na mainam upang bumalik sa lupa; nguni't hindi nila magawa; sapagka't ang dagat ay lalo't lalong umuunos laban sa kanila.

14 Kaya't sila'y nagsidaing sa Panginoon, at nangagsabi, Ipinamamanhik namin sa iyo, Oh Panginoon, ipinamamanhik namin sa iyo, huwag mo kaming ipahamak dahil sa buhay ng lalaking ito, at huwag mong ihulog sa amin ang walang salang dugo; sapagka't ikaw, Oh Panginoon, iyong ginawa ang nakalulugod sa iyo.

15 Sa gayo'y kanilang binuhat si Jonas, at inihagis sa dagat; at ang dagat ay tumigil sa kaniyang poot.

16 Nang magkagayo'y nangatakot na mainam ang mga tao sa Panginoon; at sila'y nangaghandog ng isang hain sa Panginoon, at nagsipanata.

17 At inihanda ng Panginoon ang isang malaking isda upang lamunin si Jonas; at si Jonas ay napasa tiyan ng isda na tatlong araw at tatlong gabi.


Exploring the Meaning of Jonas 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.
