Jonah 1:3 - But Jonah rose up to flee to Tarshish from the presence of Adonai. So he went down to Joppa, found a ship which was going to Tarshish, paid the fare and went down into it to go with them to Tarshish from the presence of Adonai. Jonah 2:3 - You hurled me into the depths, into the very heart of the seas, and the currents swirled about me; all your waves and breakers swept over me. Jonah 3:4 - Jonah began by going a day’s journey into the city, proclaiming, “Forty more days and Nineveh will be overthrown.” Jonah 3:6 - When Jonah’s warning reached the king of Nineveh, he rose from his throne, took off his royal robes, covered himself with sackcloth and sat down in the dust. Jonah 3:10 - When Adonai saw what they did and how they turned from their evil ways, Adonai relented and did not bring on them the destruction Adonai had threatened.
