1 Now the word of the LORD came to Jonah the second time, saying, 2 "Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and preach to it the message that I tell you." 3 So Jonah arose and went to Nineveh, according to the word of the LORD. Now Nineveh was an exceedingly great city, 1 a three-day journey 1 in extent. 4 And Jonah began to enter the city on the first day's walk. Then a he cried out and said, "Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown!" 5 So the b people of Nineveh believed God, proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth, from the greatest to the least of them.New King James Version (NKJV) Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson, Inc.
