Book 32        Jonah

32:001:001 Now the word of the LORD came unto Jonah the son of Amittai,
           saying,

32:001:002 Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry against it; for
           their wickedness is come up before me.

32:001:003 But Jonah rose up to flee unto Tarshish from the presence of
           the LORD, and went down to Joppa; and he found a ship going to
           Tarshish: so he paid the fare thereof, and went down into it,
           to go with them unto Tarshish from the presence of the LORD.

32:001:004 But the LORD sent out a great wind into the sea, and there was
           a mighty tempest in the sea, so that the ship was like to be
           broken.

32:001:005 Then the mariners were afraid, and cried every man unto his
           god, and cast forth the wares that were in the ship into the
           sea, to lighten it of them. But Jonah was gone down into the
           sides of the ship; and he lay, and was fast asleep.

32:001:006 So the shipmaster came to him, and said unto him, What meanest
           thou, O sleeper? arise, call upon thy God, if so be that God
           will think upon us, that we perish not.

32:001:007 And they said every one to his fellow, Come, and let us cast
           lots, that we may know for whose cause this evil is upon us.
           So they cast lots, and the lot fell upon Jonah.

32:001:008 Then said they unto him, Tell us, we pray thee, for whose
           cause this evil is upon us; What is thine occupation? and
           whence comest thou? what is thy country? and of what people
           art thou?

32:001:009 And he said unto them, I am an Hebrew; and I fear the LORD,
           the God of heaven, which hath made the sea and the dry land.

32:001:010 Then were the men exceedingly afraid, and said unto him. Why
           hast thou done this? For the men knew that he fled from the
           presence of the LORD, because he had told them.

32:001:011 Then said they unto him, What shall we do unto thee, that the
           sea may be calm unto us? for the sea wrought, and was
           tempestuous.

32:001:012 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.

32:001:013 Nevertheless the men rowed hard to bring it to the land; but
           they could not: for the sea wrought, and was tempestuous
           against them.

32:001:014 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.

32:001:015 So they took up Jonah, and cast him forth into the sea: and
           the sea ceased from her raging.

32:001:016 Then the men feared the LORD exceedingly, and offered a
           sacrifice unto the LORD, and made vows.

32:001:017 Now the LORD had prepared a great fish to swallow up Jonah.
           And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three
           nights.

32:002:001 Then Jonah prayed unto the LORD his God out of the fish's
           belly,

32:002:002 And said, I cried by reason of mine affliction unto the LORD,
           and he heard me; out of the belly of hell cried I, and thou
           heardest my voice.

32:002:003 For thou hadst cast me into the deep, in the midst of the
           seas; and the floods compassed me about: all thy billows and
           thy waves passed over me.

32:002:004 Then I said, I am cast out of thy sight; yet I will look again
           toward thy holy temple.

32:002:005 The waters compassed me about, even to the soul: the depth
           closed me round about, the weeds were wrapped about my head.

32:002:006 I went down to the bottoms of the mountains; the earth with
           her bars was about me for ever: yet hast thou brought up my
           life from corruption, O LORD my God.

32:002:007 When my soul fainted within me I remembered the LORD: and my
           prayer came in unto thee, into thine holy temple.

32:002:008 They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy.

32:002:009 But I will sacrifice unto thee with the voice of thanksgiving;
           I will pay that that I have vowed. Salvation is of the LORD.

32:002:010 And the LORD spake unto the fish, and it vomited out Jonah
           upon the dry land.

32:003:001 And the word of the LORD came unto Jonah the second time,
           saying,

32:003:002 Arise, go unto Nineveh, that great city, and preach unto it
           the preaching that I bid thee.

32:003:003 So Jonah arose, and went unto Nineveh, according to the word
           of the LORD. Now Nineveh was an exceeding great city of three
           days' journey.

32:003:004 And Jonah began to enter into the city a day's journey, and he
           cried, and said, Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be
           overthrown.

32:003:005 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.

32:003:006 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.

32:003:007 And he caused it to be proclaimed and published through
           Nineveh by the decree of the king and his nobles, saying, Let
           neither man nor beast, herd nor flock, taste any thing: let
           them not feed, nor drink water:

32:003:008 But let man and beast be covered with sackcloth, and cry
           mightily unto God: yea, let them turn every one from his evil
           way, and from the violence that is in their hands.

32:003:009 Who can tell if God will turn and repent, and turn away from
           his fierce anger, that we perish not?

32:003:010 And 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.

32:004:001 But it displeased Jonah exceedingly, and he was very angry.

32:004:002 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 a gracious God, and merciful, slow to anger, and of great
           kindness, and repentest thee of the evil.

32:004:003 Therefore now, O LORD, take, I beseech thee, my life from me;
           for it is better for me to die than to live.

32:004:004 Then said the LORD, Doest thou well to be angry?

32:004:005 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.

32:004:006 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 was exceeding glad of the gourd.

32:004:007 But God prepared a worm when the morning rose the next day,
           and it smote the gourd that it withered.

32:004:008 And it came to pass, when the sun did arise, that God prepared
           a vehement east wind; and the sun beat upon the head of Jonah,
           that he fainted, and wished in himself to die, and said, It is
           better for me to die than to live.

32:004:009 And God said to Jonah, Doest thou well to be angry for the
           gourd? And he said, I do well to be angry, even unto death.

32:004:010 Then said the LORD, Thou hast had pity on the gourd, for the
           which thou hast not laboured, neither madest it grow; which
           came up in a night, and perished in a night:

32:004:011 And should not I spare Nineveh, that great city, wherein are
           more then sixscore thousand persons that cannot discern
           between their right hand and their left hand; and also much
           cattle?
