World English Bible
Previous Chapter Previous Verse Full Chapter Next Verse Next Chapter
1 But it displeased Jonah exceedingly, and he was angry.
2 He prayed to Yahweh, and said, "Please, Yahweh, wasn`t this what I said when I was still in my own country? Therefore I hurried to flee to Tarshish, for I knew that you are a gracious God, and merciful, slow to anger, and abundant in lovingkindness, and you repent of the evil.
3 Therefore now, Yahweh, take, I beg you, my life from me; for it is better for me to die than to live."
4 Yahweh said, "Is it right for you to be angry?"
5 Then Jonah went out of the city, and sat on the east side of the city, and there made himself a booth, and sat under it in the shade, until he might see what would become of the city.
6 Yahweh God prepared a vine, and made it to come up over Jonah, that it might be a shade over his head, to deliver him from his discomfort. So Jonah was exceedingly glad because of the gourd.
7 But God prepared a worm at dawn the next day, and it chewed on vine, so that it withered.
