← Jona 2   Jona 4 →

1 Riječ Jahvina dođe Joni drugi put:

2 "Ustani," reče mu, "idi u Ninivu, grad veliki, propovijedaj u njemu što ću ti reći."

3 Jona ustade i ode u Ninivu, kako mu Jahve zapovjedi. Niniva bijaše grad velik do Boga - tri dana hoda.

4 Jona prođe gradom dan hoda, propovijedajući: "Još četrdeset dana i Niniva će biti razorena."

5 Ninivljani povjerovaše Bogu; oglasiše post i obukoše se u kostrijet, svi od najvećega do najmanjega.

6 Glas doprije do kralja ninivskoga: on ustade s prijestolja, skide plašt sa sebe, odjenu se u kostrijet i sjede u pepeo.

7 Tada se po odredbi kralja i njegovih velikaša oglasi i objavi u Ninivi: "Ljudi i stoka, goveda i ovce da ne okuse ništa, ni da pasu, ni da vodu piju.

8 Nego i ljudi i stoka da se pokriju kostrijeću, da glasno Boga zazivlju i da se obrati svatko sa svojega zlog puta i nepravde koju je činio.

9 Tko zna, možda će se povratiti Bog, smilovati se i odustati od ljutoga svog gnjeva da ne izginemo?"

10 Bog vidje što su činili: da se obratiše od svojega zlog puta. I sažali se Bog zbog nesreće kojom im bijaše zaprijetio i ne učini.
