The Darby Translation (DBY) New International Version (NIV)
1 And the word of Jehovah came unto Jonah the son of Amittai, saying, 1 The word of the LORD came to Jonah son of Amittai:
2 Arise, go to Nineveh, the great city, and cry against it; for their wickedness is come up before me. 2 "Go to the great city of Nineveh and preach against it, because its wickedness has come up before me."
3 But Jonah rose up to flee unto Tarshish from the presence of Jehovah; and he went down to Joppa, and found a ship going to Tarshish; so he paid the fare thereof, and went down into it, to go with them unto Tarshish, from the presence of Jehovah. 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.
