Bible: Jonah 1:1-3

Jonah Tries to Run from the Lord

1:1 The Lord said 1  to Jonah son of Amittai, 2  1:2 Go immediately 3  to Nineveh, 4  that 5  large capital 6  city, 7  and announce judgment against 8  its people 9  because their wickedness 10  has come to my attention.” 11  1:3 Instead, Jonah immediately 12  headed off to Tarshish 13  to escape 14  from the commission of the Lord. 15  He traveled 16  to Joppa 17  and found a merchant ship heading 18  to Tarshish. 19  So he paid the fare 20  and went aboard 21  it to go with them 22  to Tarshish 23  far away from the Lord. 24
