But it displeased4 Jonah exceedingly, 7451 and he was very angry.4
And he prayed101 unto the LORD, and said,4 I pray thee, O LORD, [was] not this my saying, when I was yet in my country? Therefore I fled2 before14 unto Tarshish: for I knew1 that thou [art] a gracious God, and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repentest12 thee of the evil.
Therefore now, O LORD, take,3 I beseech thee, my life from me; for [it is] better for me to die than to live.
Then said4 the LORD, Doest thou well53 to be angry?1
So Jonah went out4 of the city, and sat4 on the east side of the city, and there made4 him a booth, and sat4 under it in the shadow, till he might see4 what would become of the city.
And the LORD God prepared17 a gourd, and made [it] to come up4 over Jonah, that it might be a shadow over his head, to deliver53 him from his grief. So Jonah was exceeding 8057 glad4 of the gourd.
But God prepared17 a worm when the morning rose2 the next day, and it smote55 the gourd that it withered.4
And it came to pass, when the sun did arise,2 that God prepared17 a vehement east wind; and the sun beat55 upon the head of Jonah, that he fainted,101 and wished4 in himself to die,2 and said,4 [It is] better for me to die than to live.
And God said4 to Jonah, Doest thou well53 to be angry1 for the gourd? And he said,4 I do well53 to be angry,1 [even] unto death.
Then said4 the LORD, Thou hast had pity1 on the gourd, for the which thou hast not laboured,1 neither madest it grow;14 which came up in a night, 3915 and perished1 in a night: 3915
And should not I spare4 Nineveh, that great city, wherein are more53 than sixscore 6240 thousand persons that cannot discern1 between their right hand and their left hand; and [also] much cattle?
