||New International Version (NIV)
5 The people of Nineveh believed God. They announced that they would stop eating for a while, and they put on rough cloth to show their sadness. All the people in the city did this, from the most important to the least important.
5 The Ninevites believed God. They declared a fast, and all of them, from the greatest to the least, put on sackcloth.
