God made it pretty clear how He felt about Jonah's action of getting on a boat going the opposite direction he was supposed to go! This image of Jonah being tossed from a sail boat is not far off from what happened that day. They cast their lots and Jonah's was the one! It's interesting that they trusted the casting of lots to give them an answer of such consequence. A quick concordance check found me 14 verses that illustrated to use of the casting of lots. That is something worthy of consideration.
