Previous      Home      NextBook 32 Jonah32:001:001 Now the word of the LORD came unto Jonahthe son of Amittai,           saying,32:001:002 Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and cryagainst it; for           their wickedness is come up before me.32:001:003 But Jonah rose up to flee unto Tarshish fromthe presence of           the LORD, and went down to Joppa; and he founda ship going to           Tarshish: so he paid the fare thereof, and wentdown into it,           to go with them unto Tarshish from the presence ofthe LORD.32:001:004 But the LORD sent out a great wind into thesea, and there was           a mighty tempest in the sea, so that the ship waslike to be           broken.32:001:005 Then the mariners were afraid, and criedevery man unto his           god, and cast forth the wares that were in the shipinto the           sea, to lighten it of them. But Jonah was gonedown into the           sides of the ship; and he lay, and was fast asleep.32:001:006 So the shipmaster came to him, and said untohim, What meanest           thou, O sleeper? arise, call upon thy God, if so bethat 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 isupon us.           So they cast lots, and the lot fell upon Jonah.32:001:008 Then said they unto him, Tell us, we praythee, for whose           cause this evil is upon us; What is thineoccupation? and           whence comest thou? what is thy country? and ofwhat people           art thou?32:001:009 And he said unto them, I am an Hebrew; and Ifear the LORD,           the God of heaven, which hath made the sea andthe dry land.32:001:010 Then were the men exceedingly afraid, andsaid unto him. Why           hast thou done this? For the men knew that he fledfrom the           presence of the LORD, because he had told them.32:001:011 Then said they unto him, What shall we dounto 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 castme forth into the           sea; so shall the sea be calm unto you: for I knowthat for my           sake this great tempest is upon you.32:001:013 Nevertheless the men rowed hard to bring itto the land; but           they could not: for the sea wrought, and wastempestuous           against them.
32:001:014 Wherefore they cried unto the LORD, andsaid, We beseech thee,           O LORD, we beseech thee, let us not perish forthis 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 intothe 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 toswallow up Jonah.           And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three daysand three           nights.32:002:001 Then Jonah prayed unto the LORD his Godout of the fish's           belly,32:002:002 And said, I cried by reason of mine afflictionunto 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 themidst of the           seas; and the floods compassed me about: all thybillows and           thy waves passed over me.32:002:004 Then I said, I am cast out of thy sight; yet Iwill 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 wrappedabout 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 thoubrought up my           life from corruption, O LORD my God.32:002:007 When my soul fainted within me Iremembered the LORD: and my           prayer came in unto thee, into thine holy temple.32:002:008 They that observe lying vanities forsake theirown mercy.32:002:009 But I will sacrifice unto thee with the voice ofthanksgiving;           I will pay that that I have vowed. Salvation is of the.DROL32:002:010 And the LORD spake unto the fish, and itvomited out Jonah           upon the dry land.32:003:001 And the word of the LORD came unto Jonahthe second time,           saying,32:003:002 Arise, go unto Nineveh, that great city, andpreach 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 exceedinggreat city of three           days' journey.32:003:004 And Jonah began to enter into the city a day'sjourney, and he           cried, and said, Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall
eb           overthrown.32:003:005 So the people of Nineveh believed God, andproclaimed a fast,           and put on sackcloth, from the greatest of themeven to the           least of them.32:003:006 For word came unto the king of Nineveh, andhe arose from his           throne, and he laid his robe from him, and coveredhim with           sackcloth, and sat in ashes.32:003:007 And he caused it to be proclaimed andpublished through           Nineveh by the decree of the king and his nobles,saying, Let           neither man nor beast, herd nor flock, taste anything: let           them not feed, nor drink water:32:003:008 But let man and beast be covered withsackcloth, and cry           mightily unto God: yea, let them turn every onefrom his evil           way, and from the violence that is in their hands.32:003:009 Who can tell if God will turn and repent, andturn away from           his fierce anger, that we perish not?32:003:010 And God saw their works, that they turnedfrom their evil way;           and God repented of the evil, that he had said thathe would           do unto them; and he did it not.32:004:001 But it displeased Jonah exceedingly, and hewas 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 mycountry?           Therefore I fled before unto Tarshish: for I knewthat 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 beseechthee, 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 beangry?32:004:005 So Jonah went out of the city, and sat on theeast side of the           city, and there made him a booth, and sat under itin the           shadow, till he might see what would become ofthe city.32:004:006 And the LORD God prepared a gourd, andmade it to come up over           Jonah, that it might be a shadow over his head, todeliver him           from his grief. So Jonah was exceeding glad of thegourd.32:004:007 But God prepared a worm when the morningrose 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 thehead of Jonah,           that he fainted, and wished in himself to die, andsaid, 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, evenunto death.32:004:010 Then said the LORD, Thou hast had pity onthe gourd, for the           which thou hast not laboured, neither madest itgrow; which           came up in a night, and perished in a night:32:004:011 And should not I spare Nineveh, that greatcity, wherein are           more then sixscore thousand persons that cannotdiscern           between their right hand and their left hand; andalso much           cattle?Previous      Home      Next*** END OF THE PROJECT GUTENBERG EBOOK THE BIBLE, KING JAMES, B32 ********* This file should be named bib3210h.htm or *******Corrected EDITIONS of our eBooks get a new NUMBER, bib3211h.htmVERSIONS based on separate sources get new LETTER, bib3210ah.htmThis eBook was produced by David WidgerAdditional credits are noted in the header.Project Gutenberg eBooks are often created from several printededitions, all of which are confirmed as Public Domain in the USunless a copyright notice is included.
