← 約拿書 2   約拿書 4 →

1 約拿遵命耶和華的話再次臨到約拿,說:

2 “起來!到尼尼微大城去,向其中的居民宣告我所吩咐你的話。”

3 約拿就動身,照耶和華的話往尼尼微去了,這尼尼微是一座極大的城(“是一座極大的城”或譯:“在 神面前是一座大城”),要三天才能走完。

4 尼尼微人悔改得救約拿進城,走了一天,就宣告說:“再過四十天,尼尼微就要毀滅了。”

5 尼尼微人信了(“信了”或譯:“信服”) 神,就宣告禁食,從大到小,都穿上麻衣。

6 這事傳到尼尼微王那裡,他就起來,離開寶座,脫去王袍,披上麻衣,坐在爐灰中。

7 他又傳諭全尼尼微,說:“王和大臣有令:‘人、畜、牛、羊,都不准嘗甚麼,不准吃,也不准喝。

8 不論人畜,都要披上麻衣;各人要懇切呼求 神,悔改,離開惡行,摒棄手中的強暴。

9 或者 神回心轉意,不發烈怒,使我們不致滅亡。’”

10  神看見他們所作的,就是悔改離開惡行, 神就轉意,不把所說的災禍降在他們身上了。
