Jonah 1:2-3; Jonah 1:6; Jonah 3:2-3; Jonah 3:6
"Arise, go to Nineveh the great city and cry against it, for their wickedness has come up before Me."
But Jonah rose up to flee to Tarshish from the presence of the LORD . So he went down to Joppa, 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 .
So the captain approached him and said, "How is it that you are sleeping? Get up, call on your god. Perhaps your god will be concerned about us so that we will not perish."
"Arise, go to Nineveh the great city and proclaim 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 exceedingly great city, a three days' walk.
When the word reached the king of Nineveh, he arose from his throne, laid aside his robe from him, covered himself with sackcloth and sat on the ashes.
