Jonah 1:1-3

ESV 1 Now the word of the LORD came to Jonah the son of Amittai, saying, MSG 1 One day long ago, God's Word came to Jonah, Amittai's son: ESV 2 "Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and call out against it, for their evil has come up before me." MSG 2 "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." ESV 3 But Jonah rose to flee to Tarshish from the presence of the LORD. He went down to Joppa and found a ship going to Tarshish. So he paid the fare and went on board, to go with them to Tarshish, away from the presence of the LORD. MSG 3 But Jonah got up and went the other direction to Tarshish, running away from God. He went down to the port of Joppa and found a ship headed for Tarshish. He paid the fare and went on board, joining those going to Tarshish - as far away from God as he could get.
