The response of Jonah (Jon 1:9-1:9)

Jonah said to them.

‘I am a Hebrew.

I worship Yahweh,

The God of heaven,

Who made the sea.

He also made

The dry land.’”

Jonah responded to them that he was a Hebrew.  He did not call himself an Israelite or a Judean.  He worshiped Yahweh, the God of heaven and the creator of the sea and the land.
