And the word of the LORD came unto Jonah the second time,
Arise, go unto Nineveh, that great city, and preach unto it
preaching that I bid thee.
So Jonah arose, and went unto Nineveh, according to the word
the LORD. Now Nineveh was an exceeding great city of three days'
And Jonah began to enter into the city a day's journey, and
cried, and said, Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown.
So the people of Nineveh believed God, and proclaimed a
put on sackcloth, from the greatest of them even to the least of them.
For word came unto the king of Nineveh, and he arose from
throne, and he laid his robe from him, and covered him with sackcloth,
and sat in ashes.
And he caused it to be proclaimed and published through
by the decree of the king and his nobles, saying, Let neither man nor
beast, herd nor flock, taste any thing: let them not feed, nor drink
But let man and beast be covered with sackcloth, and cry
unto God: yea, let them turn every one from his evil way, and from the
violence that is in their hands.
Who can tell if God will turn and repent, and turn away from
fierce anger, that we perish not?
And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil
and God repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto
them; and he did it not.
