Jonah: 3

Jonah obeys the LORD.  Jon.3.1-10

1The word of the LORD came to Jonah a second time: 2'Go to the great city of Nineveh, go now and denounce it in the words I give you.' 3 [3-4] Jonah obeyed at once and went to Nineveh. He began by going a day's journey into the city, a vast city, three days' journey across, and then proclaimed: 'In forty days Nineveh shall be overthrown!' 4 5The people of Nineveh believed God's word. They ordered a public fast and put on sackcloth, high and low alike. 6When the news reached the king of Nineveh he rose from his throne, stripped off his robes of state, put on sackcloth and sat in ashes. 7Then he had a proclamation made in Nineveh: 'This is a decree of the king and his nobles. No man or beast, herd or flock, is to taste food, to graze or to drink water. 8They are to clothe themselves in sackcloth and call on God with all their might. Let every man abandon his wicked ways and his habitual violence. 9It may be that God will repent and turn away from his anger: and so we shall not perish.' 10God saw what they did, and how they abandoned their wicked ways, and he repented and did not bring upon them the disaster he had threatened.
