(15) Raging.--Comp. maris ira, Ovid. Met. i. 330; iratum mare, Hor. Epod. ii.57.

"At whose burden

The angered ocean foams."

SHAKESPEARE: Ant. and Cleop.

Verse 15. - They took up, with a certain reverence. Ceased from her raging; literally, stood from its anger; Septuagint, ἔστη ἐκ τοῦ σάλου αὐτῆς, "stood from its tossing." The sudden cessation of the storm showed that it had been sent on Jonah's account, and that the crew had not sinned by executing the sentence upon him. Usually it takes some time for the swell to cease after the wind has sunk: here there was suddenly a great calm (Matthew 8:26).
