[They cast lots, and it falleth on Jonah]
1st Sailor: Tell us what happened now, we pray, and why
upon thee fell the lot.
2nd Sailor: What fault of signs
or portents did precipitate thy try,
that we may know the reasons and designs
behind whose cause this evil doth impart
3rd Sailor: What thy occupation?
1st Sailor: Whence
2nd Sailor: What nation from, what people art
3rd Sailor: What seekest thou, in going thence?
1st Sailor: Didst thou some rank impiety commit?
2nd Sailor: Didst sin or hold some evil in thine heart?
3rd Sailor: Did impropriety make thee unfit?
