|"And God prepared a great fish to swallow up Jonah....[W]ith this sin of disobedience in him, Jonah still further flouts at God, by seeking to flee from Him. He thinks a ship made by men, will carry him into countries where God does not reign......'I fear the Lord the God of Heaven who hath made the sea and the dry land!' And now behold Jonah, taken up as an anchor and dropped into the sea....[H]e goes down in the whirling heart of such a masterless commotion that he scarce heeds the moment when he drops seething into the yawning jaws awaiting him; and the whale shoots-to, all his ivory teeth, like so many white bolts, upon his prison. Yet even then beyond the reach of any plummet - 'out of the belly of hell' - when the whale grounded upon the ocean's utmost bones, even then, God heard the engulfed, repenting prophet when he cried. Then God spake unto the fish; and from the shuddering cold and blackness of the sea, the whale came breeching up towards the warm and pleasant sun, and all the delights of air and earth; and vomited out Jonah on the dry land."
