Then the LORD spoke to Jonah a second time:
"Get up and go to the great city of Nineveh, and deliver the message of judgment I have given you."
This time Jonah obeyed the LORD's command and went to Nineveh, a city so large that it took three days to see it all.
On the day Jonah entered the city, he shouted to the crowds: "Forty days from now Nineveh will be destroyed!"
