Jonah 3:5-9 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
5 The Ninevites believed God. They declared a fast, and all of them, from the greatest to the least, put on sackcloth.1 6 When the news reached the king of Nineveh, he rose from his throne, took off his royal robes, covered himself with sackcloth and sat down in the dust.2 7 Then he issued a proclamation in Nineveh: "By the decree of the king and his nobles: Do not let any man or beast, herd or flock, taste anything; do not let them eat or drink.3 8 But let man and beast be covered with sackcloth. Let everyone call4 urgently on God. Let them give up5 their evil ways6 and their violence.7 9 Who knows?8 God may yet relent9 and with compassion turn10 from his fierce anger11 so that we will not perish."
