Jonah 1:1-3 NRS

1 Now the word of the Lord came to Jonah son of Amittai, saying,
2 "Go at once to Nineveh, that great city, and cry out against it; for their wickedness has come up before me."
3 But Jonah set out to flee to Tarshish from the presence of the Lord. He went down to Joppa and found a ship going to Tarshish; so he paid his fare and went on board, to go with them to Tarshish, away from the presence of the Lord.
