1The word of Yahweh was addressed to Jonah a second time. 2'Up!' he said, 'Go to Nineveh, the great city, and preach to it as I shal tel you.' 3Jonah set out and went to Nineveh in obedience to the word of Yahweh. Now Nineveh was a city greatbeyond compare; to cross it took three days. 4Jonah began by going a day's journey into the city and then proclaimed, 'Only forty days more andNineveh will be overthrown.' 5And the people of Nineveh believed in God; they proclaimed a fast and put on sackcloth, from thegreatest to the least. 6When the news reached the king of Nineveh, he rose from his throne, took off his robe, put on sackclothand sat down in ashes. 7He then had it proclaimed throughout Nineveh, by decree of the king and his nobles, as fol ows: 'Noperson or animal, herd or flock, may eat anything; they may not graze, they may not drink any water. 8All must put on sackcloth and cal on God with al their might; and let everyone renounce his evil waysand violent behaviour. 9Who knows? Perhaps God wil change his mind and relent and renounce his burning wrath, so that weshall not perish.' 10God saw their efforts to renounce their evil ways. And God relented about the disaster which he hadthreatened to bring on them, and did not bring it.
