New Revised Standard (NRS) New International Version (NIV)
1 The word of the Lord came to Jonah a second time, saying, 1 Then the word of the LORD came to Jonah a second time:
2 "Get up, go to Nineveh, that great city, and proclaim to it the message that I tell you." 2 "Go to the great city of Nineveh and proclaim to it the message I give you."
3 So Jonah set out and went to Nineveh, according to the word of the Lord. Now Nineveh was an exceedingly large city, a three days' walk across. 3 Jonah obeyed the word of the LORD and went to Nineveh. Now Nineveh was a very important city--a visit required three days.
4 Jonah began to go into the city, going a day's walk. And he cried out, "Forty days more, and Nineveh shall be overthrown!" 4 On the first day, Jonah started into the city. He proclaimed: "Forty more days and Nineveh will be overturned."
