Jonah Responds to God’s Kindness

4:1 This displeased Jonah terribly 6  and he became very angry. 7  4:2 He prayed to the Lord and said, “Oh, Lord, this is just what I thought 8  would happen 9  when I was in my own country. 10  This is what I tried to prevent 11  by attempting to escape to Tarshish! 12  – because I knew 13  that you are gracious and compassionate, slow to anger 14  and abounding 15  in mercy, and one who relents concerning threatened judgment. 16
