4 But ait displeased Jonah exceedingly, and bhe was very angry. 2 And he prayed unto the Lord, and said, I pray thee, O Lord, was not this my saying, when I was yet in my country? Therefore cI fled before unto Tarshish: for I knew that thou art da gracious God, and demerciful, dslow to anger, and of great kindness, dand repentest thee of the evil. 3 Therefore now, fO Lord, take, I beseech thee, my life from me; for git is better for me to die than to live. 4 Then said the Lord, ||Doest thou well to be angry? 5 So Jonah went out of the city, and sat on the east side of the city, and there made him ha booth, and sat under it in the shadow, till he might see what would become of the city. 6 And the iLord God jprepared a ||†gourd, and made it to come up over Jonah, that it might be a shadow over his head, to deliver him from his agrief. So Jonah †was exceeding glad of the gourd. 7 But God jprepared a worm when the morning rose the next day, and it smote the gourd that it withered. 8 And it came to pass, when the sun did arise, that God jprepared a ||vehement keast wind; and the sun lbeat upon the head of Jonah, that mhe fainted, and wished in himself to die, and said, gIt is better for me to die than to live. 9 And God said to Jonah, ||Doest thou well to be angry for the gourd? And he said, ||I do well to be angry, neven unto death. 10 Then said the Lord, Thou hast ||had pity on the gourd, for the which thou hast not laboured, neither madest it grow; which †came up in a night, and perished in a night: 11 And should not I spare oNineveh, that great city, wherein are more than sixscore thousand persons pthat cannot discern between their right hand and their left hand; qand also much cattle?
