I think they were saved, just like Naaman the Syrian. They were confronted with God and submitted. Fearing the Lord is usually a reference to godly fear, a trademark of God's people.Originally posted by cih1355
Were the sailors in Jonah chapter 1 saved? Jonah 1:16 says that they feared the Lord, offered a sacrifice, and made vows.
Why does Jonah 3:5 use the term, "God", instead of the "Lord"?
Did the Ninevites have a true conversion?
