Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Then the word of the LORD came to Jonah the second time, saying, 1 Then the word of the LORD came to Jonah a second time:
2 "Arise, go to Nin'eveh, 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 arose and went to Nin'eveh, according to the word of the LORD. Now Nin'eveh was an exceedingly great city, three days' journey in breadth. 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 journey. And he cried, "Yet forty days, and Nin'eveh shall be overthrown!" 4 On the first day, Jonah started into the city. He proclaimed: "Forty more days and Nineveh will be overturned."
