1 Jonah preaches at Nineveh
1 And the word of the Lord came unto Jonah the second time, saying,
2 Arise, go unto Nineveh, that great city, and preach unto it the preaching that I bid thee.
4 And Jonah began to enter into the city a day's journey, and Deut. 18:22he cried, and said, Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown.
5 So the people of Nineveh Mat. 12:41;Luke 11:32believed God, and proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth, from the greatest of them even to the least of them.
6 For word came unto the king of Nineveh, and he arose from his throne, and he laid his robe from him, and covered him with sackcloth, Job 2:8and sat in ashes.
7 2 Chr. 20:3;Joel 2:15And he caused it to be proclaimed and [b]published through Nineveh by the decree of the king and his [c]nobles, saying, Let neither man nor beast, herd nor flock, taste any thing: let them not feed, nor drink water:
8 But let man and beast be covered with sackcloth, and cry mightily unto God: yea, Is. 58:6let them turn every one from his evil way, and from Is. 59:6the violence that is in their hands.
9 2 Sam. 12:22;Joel 2:14Who can tell if God will turn and repent, and turn away from his fierce anger, that we perish not?
10 Jer. 18:8;Amos 7:3,6And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them; and he did it not.
