Nineveh Repents

1 Now the word of the LORD came to Jonah the second time, saying, 2 "Arise, go to 1Nineveh the great city and 2proclaim 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 aan 3exceedingly great city, a three days' walk. 4 Then Jonah began to go through the city one day's walk; and he 4cried out and said, "Yet forty days and Nineveh will be overthrown." 5 Then the people of Nineveh believed in God; and they called a 5fast 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, 6covered himself with sackcloth and sat on the bashes. 7 He issued a 7proclamation 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 cmen 8call on God earnestly that each may 9turn from his wicked way and from the violence which is in dhis hands. 9 "10Who knows, God may turn and relent and withdraw His burning anger so that we will not perish."
