Michael Ben Zehabe quote #297 from a commentary on Jonah

Just as ceremonial fasting was a legitimate means for getting Gods attention Mt 616-18 Ac 132-3 1423 the casting of lots was a legitimate means for inviting God to intercede on a matter. Pr 1818 It was not expected that God should intervene every time 1Sam 286 but the ceremonial casting of lots was an invitation for God to participate in the final decision. page 21
