Jonah was sleeping (Jon 1:5-1:6)

“Jonah,

Meanwhile,

Had gone down

Into the hold

Of the ship.

He had lain down.

He was fast asleep.

The captain came.

He said to him.

‘What are you doing

Sound asleep?

Get up!

Call on your God!

Perhaps your God

Will spare us

A thought,

So that we do not perish.’”

However, Jonah was oblivious to all that was going on with the storm, since he was sleeping below the deck.  Then the captain of the ship came to Jonah.  He told him to wake up and pray to his god.  Maybe the god of Jonah would help them not to die at sea.
