By His power He stirred the sea,
and by His understanding He crushed Rahab.
You silence the roar of the seas,
the roar of their waves,
and the tumult of the nations.
You rule the raging sea;
when its waves surge, You still them.
He stilled the storm to a murmur,
and the waves of the sea were hushed.
But He said to them, “Why are you fearful, you of little faith?” Then He got up and rebuked the winds and the sea. And there was a great calm.
He got up, rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Silence! Be still!” The wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
They came and woke Him up, saying, “Master, Master, we’re going to die!” Then He got up and rebuked the wind and the raging waves. So they ceased, and there was a calm.
So they said to him, “What should we do to you to calm this sea that’s against us?” For the sea was getting worse and worse.
He answered them, “Pick me up and throw me into the sea so it may quiet down for you, for I know that I’m to blame for this violent storm that is against you.”
Then they picked up Jonah and threw him into the sea, and the sea stopped its raging.
Instead, I have calmed and quieted myself
like a little weaned child with its mother;
I am like a little child.
