Jonah's Flight

1 The word of the Lord came to Jonah son of Amittai:a
2 "Get up! Go to the great city of Nineveh and preach against it, because their wickedness has confronted Me."
3 However, Jonah got up to flee to Tarshish from the Lord's presence. He went downb to Joppa and found a ship going to Tarshish. He paid the fare and went down into it to go with them to Tarshish, from the Lord's presence.
