Jonah 4

Previous chapter Index
1 Jonah was very upset by this and was annoyed.
2 And he prayed to the Lord and said: O Lord! Wasn't that what I said when I was still in my country? That’s why I ran to Tarshish, for I knew that You are a good and merciful God, long-suffering and multi-merciful, and you regret the calamity.
3 And now, Lord, take my soul from me, for it is better for me to die than to live.
4 And the Lord said: Is this really upsetting you so much?

5 And Jonah went out of the city, and sat on the east side of the city, and made himself a shovel there, and sat under it in the shade to see what would happen to the city.
6 And the Lord God sprouted a plant, and it rose above Jonah, so that there would be a shadow over his head and to deliver him from his grief; Jonah was very happy with this plant.
7 And God made it so that the next day, when the dawn appeared, the worm undermined the plant, and it withered.
eight When the sun rose, God brought a sultry east wind, and the sun began to burn Jonah's head, so that he was exhausted and asked himself to die, and said: it is better for me to die than to live.
nine And God said to Jonah, are you really so upset for the plant? He said: very upset, even to death.
ten Then the Lord said: you regret the plant on which you did not work and which you did not grow, which grew in one night and disappeared in one night:
eleven Should I pity Nineveh, a great city in which there are more than one hundred and twenty thousand people who do not know how to distinguish the right hand from the left, and many cattle?
