Jonah's Disobedience

1 The word of the LORD came to 1Jonah the son of Amittai saying,
2 "Arise, go to 2Nineveh the great city and 3cry against it, for their 4wickedness has come up before Me."
3 But Jonah rose up to flee to 5Tarshish 6from the presence of the LORD. So he went down to 7Joppa, found a ship which was going to Tarshish, paid the fare and went down into it to go with them to Tarshish from the presence of the LORD.
