Next, God spoke to Jonah a second time:
"Up on your feet and on your way to the big city of Nineveh! Preach to them. They're in a bad way and I can't ignore it any longer."
This time Jonah started off straight for Nineveh, obeying God's orders to the letter.
Jonah entered the city, went one day's walk and preached, "In forty days Nineveh will be smashed."
