Yonah, Iyyov and Eliyahu


This one is a bit of a riddle: What is the common denominator between the three stories mentioned here?

"Three winds went forth without being weighed, and could have destroyed the world: One in the days of Yonah [threatening his ship], one in the days of Iyyov [demolishing his home], and one in the days of Eliyahu [manifesting Divine power to him in response to his challenge]…"

(Midrash, Bereishit Rabbah 24:4)

Have a great day,
