A message came to Jonah from the LORD a second time. He said,
"Go to the great city of Nineveh. Announce to its people the message I give you."
Jonah obeyed the Lord. He went to Nineveh. It was a very important city. In fact, it took about three days to see all of it.
On the first day, Jonah started into the city. He announced, "In 40 days Nineveh will be destroyed."
