\\INTRODUCTION TO JONAH 4\\

This chapter gives us an account of Jonah's displeasure at the
repentance of the Ninevites, and at the Lord's showing mercy unto them,
\\#Jon 4:1\\; the angry prayer of Jonah upon it, \\#Jon 4:2,3\\; the Lord's
gentle reproof of him for it, \\#Jon 4:4\\; his conduct upon that,
\\#Jon 4:5\\; the gourd prepared for him; its rise, usefulness, and
destruction, which raised different passions in Jonah, \\#Jon 4:6-8\\; the
improvement the Lord made of this to rebuke Jonah, for his displicency
at the mercy he showed to the Ninevites, and to convict him of his
folly, \\#Jon 4:9-11\\.
