Jonah 1:1-3

  1. The word of YHWH came (3ms Qal wayiqqtol + b hence “came to” not “was to”) to Jonah, son of Ammitay (apposition), saying (Qal infin cons + l).
  2. Arise, go (2x 2ms Qal imptv, asyndeton) to Nineveh, the great city (apposition), and call out (2ms Qal imptv) against it (lit. her) because (or “that”) its wickedness has come up before me.”
  3. And Jonah arose (3ms Qal wayiqqtol) to flee (Qal infin cons + l) to Tarshish from the presense of YHWH, and he went down (3ms Qal wayiqqtol) (to) Joppa and he found (3ms Qal wayiqqtol) a ship going (fs Qal act pcpl) to Tarshish, and he paid (3ms Qal wayiqqtol) the fair and he went down (3ms Qal wayiqqtol) onto it to go (Qal infin cons + l) with them to Tarshish.
