3 The LORD repented for this: It shall not be, saith the LORD.

4 Thus hath the Lord GOD shewed unto me: and, behold, the Lord GOD called to contend by fire, and it devoured the great deep, and did eat up a part. 5 Then said I, O Lord GOD, cease, I beseech thee: 1by whom shall Jacob arise? for he is small.

6 The LORD repented for this: This also shall not be, saith the Lord GOD. 7TdThus he shewed me: and, behold, the Lord stood upon a wall made by a plumbline, with a plumbline in his hand.

11 Then said they unto him, What shall we do unto thee, that the sea 3may be calm unto us? for the sea 4wrought, and was tempestuous.

12 And he said unto them, Take me up, and cast me forth into the sea; so shall the sea be calm unto you: for I know that for my sake this great tempest is upon you.

13 Nevertheless the men 6rowed hard to bring it to the land; but they could not for the sea 4 wrought, and was tempestuous against them.

14 Wherefore they cried unto the LORD, and said, We beseech thee, O LORD, we beseech thee, let us not perish for this man's life, and lay not upon us innocent blood: for thou, O LORD, hast done as it pleased thee.

15 So they took up Jonah, and cast him forth into the sea: and the sea ceased from her raging.

16 Then the men feared the LORD exceedingly, and 9offered a sacrifice unto the LORD, and made vows.

CHAPTER 4

BUT it displeased Jonah exceedingly, 2 And he prayed unto the LORD, and said, I pray thee, O LORD, was not this my saying, when I was yet in my country? Therefore I fled before unto Tarshish: for I knew that thou art la gracious God, and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repentest thee of the evil.

and he was very angry.

3 Therefore now, O LORD, take, I beseech thee, my life from me, for it is better for me to die than to live.

4 Then said the LORD, 5 Doest thou well to be angry?

5 So Jonah went out of the city, and sat on the east side of the city, and there made him a booth, and sat under it in the shadow, till he might see what would become of the city.

6 And the LORD God prepared a gourd, and made it to come up over Jonah, that it might be a shadow over his head, to deliver him from his grief. So Jonah 7 was exceeding glad of the gourd.

7 But God prepared a worm when the Heb. of God. morning rose the next day, and it smote the gourd that it withered.

said, Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall

5 So the people of Nineveh believed 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, and sat in ashes.

7 And he caused it to be proclaimed and 14 published through Nineveh by the decree of the king and his 15 nobles, saying, Let neither man nor beast, herd nor flock, taste any thing: let them not feed, nor drink water:

9 And God said to Jonah, 10 Doest thou well to be angry for the gourd? And he said, I do well to be angry, even unto death.

10 Then said the LORD, Thou hast 12 had pity on the gourd, for the which thou hast not laboured, neither madest it grow; which 13came up in a night, and perished in a night:

11 And should not I spare Nineveh, that great city, wherein are more than sixscore thousand persons that cannot discern between their right hand and their left hand; and also much cattle?
