1 The word of Yahweh was addressed to Jonah a second time.
Jonah 1:1  John 21:15-17 

2 'Up!' he said, 'Go to Nineveh, the great city, and preach to it as I shall tell you.'
Ezek 2:7  Jer 1:17  Jonah 1:2  Ezek 3:17  Jer 15:19-21  John 5:14  Jonah 3:3 

3 Jonah set out and went to Nineveh in obedience to the word of Yahweh. Now Nineveh was a city great beyond compare; to cross it took three days.
Gen 22:3  Gen 30:8  Matt 21:28-29  Ps 36:6  Ps 80:10  2Tim 4:11 

4 Jonah began by going a day's journey into the city and then proclaimed, 'Only forty days more and Nineveh will be overthrown.'
Deut 18:22  Jer 18:7-10  2Kgs 20:1  2Kgs 20:6  Jonah 3:10 

5 And the people of Nineveh believed in God; they proclaimed a fast and put on sackcloth, from the greatest to the least.
Luke 11:32  Matt 12:41  Joel 1:14  Joel 2:12-17  2Chr 20:3  Dan 9:3  Acts 8:10 

6 When the news reached the king of Nineveh, he rose from his throne, took off his robe, put on sackcloth and sat down in ashes.
Esth 4:1-4  Ezek 27:30-31  Jas 4:6-10  Job 2:8  Dan 9:3  Jas 1:9-10  Jer 6:26 

7 He then had it proclaimed throughout Nineveh, by decree of the king and his nobles, as follows: 'No person or animal, herd or flock, may eat anything; they may not graze, they may not drink any water.
2Chr 20:3  Joel 1:18  Ezra 8:21  Joel 2:15-16  Jonah 3:5  Rom 8:20-22 

8 All must put on sackcloth and call on God with all their might; and let everyone renounce his evil ways and violent behaviour.
Isa 55:6-7  Isa 1:16-19  Isa 59:6  Jonah 1:6  Jonah 1:14  Acts 3:19  Acts 26:20 

9 Who knows? Perhaps God will change his mind and relent and renounce his burning wrath, so that we shall not perish.'
2Sam 12:22  Amos 5:15  Joel 2:13-14  Jonah 1:6  Luke 15:18-20  Ps 106:45 

10 God saw their efforts to renounce their evil ways. And God relented about the disaster which he had threatened to bring on them, and did not bring it.
Jer 18:8  Amos 7:6  Exod 32:14  1Kgs 21:27-29  Amos 7:3  Jer 31:18-20  Job 33:27-28
