Jonah in the Ship of Tarshish — referring to Jonah 1 ff., the story of Jonah who tried to avoid God’s command by sailing to Tarshish. During a storm he was thrown overboard, to be then miraculously saved by being swallowed by a large fish which afterwards spat him out on the shore, in the land of Nineveh where the Lord had wished him to speak in the first place.
