Jonah 1:11-16 - This is a transitional segment shifts from the ship into the belly of the fish; and Jonah's time of reflection and his prayer of forgiveness. This Text is unusual as is the whole book; because Jonah asks to be thrown into the sea during the raging storm. Also, we see pagans pray to The One True God, while God's prophet simply says: "hurl me in . . ." No one knows for certain what was going through Jonah's mind when he said that; but he must have expected to die.
