Nineveh Repents1 Now the word of the Lord came to Jonah the second time, saying, 2 “Arise, go to a Nineveh the great city and b proclaim to it the proclamation which I am going to tell you.” 3 So Jonah arose and went to Nineveh according to the word of the Lord. Now Nineveh was ▼
▼ Lit a great city to Godan d exceedingly great city, a three days’ walk. 4 Then Jonah began to go through the city one day’s walk; and he e cried out and said, “Yet forty days and Nineveh will be overthrown.” 5 Then the people of Nineveh believed in God; and they called a f fast and put on sackcloth from the greatest to the least of them. 6 When the word reached the king of Nineveh, he arose from his throne, laid aside his robe from him, g covered himself with sackcloth and sat on the ▼
▼ Or dustashes. 7 He issued a i proclamation and it said, “In Nineveh by the decree of the king and his nobles: Do not let man, beast, herd, or flock taste a thing. Do not let them eat or drink water. 8 “But both man and beast must be covered with sackcloth; and let ▼
▼ Lit themmen k call on God earnestly that each may l turn from his wicked way and from the violence which is in ▼
▼ Lit theirhis hands. 9 n “Who knows, God may turn and relent and withdraw His burning anger so that we will not perish.” 10 When God saw their deeds, that they o turned from their wicked way, then p God relented concerning the calamity which He had declared He would ▼
▼ Lit dobring upon them. And He did not do it.
