Now the word of the LORD came to Jonah the second time, saying,
"Arise, go to 1Nineveh the great city and 2proclaim to it the proclamation which I am going to tell you."
So Jonah arose and went to Nineveh according to the word of the LORD. Now Nineveh was an 3exceedingly great city, a three days' walk.
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."
