The word of the LORD came to 1Jonah the son of Amittai saying,
"Arise, go to 2Nineveh the great city and 3cry against it, for their 4wickedness has come up before Me."
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.
