They throw Jonah overboard (Jon 1:15-1:15)They throw Jonah overboard (Jon 1:15-1:15)

“So,

The sailors picked up

Jonah.

They threw him

Into the sea.

The sea

Ceased

From its raging.”

In a proactive move, the sailors of the ship did what Jonah had requested.  They picked Jonah up and threw him into the sea.  Almost immediately after he fell into the sea, the sea itself ceased its stormy raging behavior.  The problem of the storm was solved.
