Jonah 1:7-9 (timeless)

Jonah 1:7-9
1:7 -  Each man said to his mate, “Come, let us cast lots so we may learn on whose account this calamity has struck us.” So they cast lots and the lot fell on Jonah.
God controls the lot.

1:8 - Then they said to him, “Tell us, now! On whose account has this calamity struck us? What is your occupation? And where do you come from? What is your country? From what people are you?”
God uses many men to confront man.

1:9 - He said to them, “I am a Hebrew, and I fear the Lord God of heaven who made the sea and the dry land.”
God is the Lord God of heaven.
God created the sea and dry land.
The truth will eventually be known.

Paragraph summary
God controls the lot.
God brings out the truth of the matter.
