  7. 7. 3 But Jonah rose to flee to Tarshish from the presence of the Lord. He went down to Joppa and found a ship going to Tarshish. So, he paid the fare and went down into it, to go with them to Tarshish, away from the presence of the Lord. - Jonah 1:3 ESV -

But Jonah had gone down into the inner par t of the ship and had lain down and was fast asleep. - Jonah 1:4 -5 ESV -
