Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Now the word of the LORD came to Jonah the son of Amit'tai, saying, 1 The word of the LORD came to Jonah son of Amittai:
2 "Arise, go to Nin'eveh, that great city, and cry against it; for their wickedness has 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 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 the fare, and went on board, to go with them to Tarshish, away from the presence of 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.
