Nineveh hears God’s word

1 The LORD's word came to Jonah a second time:
2 "Get up and go to Nineveh, that great city, and declare against it the proclamation that I am commanding you."
3 And Jonah got up and went to Nineveh, according to the LORD's word. (Now Nineveh was indeed an enormous city, a three days' walk across.)
4 Jonah started into the city, walking one day, and he cried out, "Just forty days more and Nineveh will be overthrown!"
