Common English Bible w/ Apocrypha (CEBA) New International Version (NIV)
1 The LORD's word came to Jonah, Amittai's son: 1 The word of the LORD came to Jonah son of Amittai:
2 "Get up and go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry out against it, for their evil has come to my attention." 2 "Go to the great city of Nineveh and preach against it, because its wickedness has come up before me."
3 So Jonah got up—to flee to Tarshish from the LORD! He went down to Joppa and found a ship headed for Tarshish. He paid the fare and went aboard to go with them to Tarshish, away from the LORD. 3 But Jonah ran away from the LORD and headed for Tarshish. He went down to Joppa, where he found a ship bound for that port. After paying the fare, he went aboard and sailed for Tarshish to flee from the LORD.
