Chapter 3. Now the word of the Lord came to Jonah The second time saying arise go to Nineveh that great City and preach to it The message that I tell you So Jonah arose and went to Nineveh According to the word of the Lord Now Nineveh was an exceedingly great City a three-day journey in extent And Jonah began to enter the city on the First day's walk Then he cried out and said Yet 40 days and Nineveh shall be Overthrown So the people of Nineveh believed God Proclaimed a fast and put on sackcloth From the greatest to the least of them Then word came to the king of Nineveh And he arose from his throne and laid Aside his robe covered himself with Sackcloth and sat in ashes And he caused it to be proclaimed and Published throughout Nineveh by the Decree of the king and his Nobles saying Let neither man nor Beast heard nor Flock taste anything Do not let them eat or drink water But let man and Beast be covered with Sackcloth and cry mightily to God Yes let everyone turn from his evil way And from the violence that is in his Hands Who can tell if God will turn and relent And turn away from his Fierce anger so

That we may not perish Then God saw their works that they Turned from their evil way And God relented from the disaster that He had said he would bring upon them And he did not do it
