Bible: Jonah 3:7-9

3:7 He issued a proclamation and said, 1  “In Nineveh, by the decree of the king and his nobles: No human or animal, cattle or sheep, is to taste anything; they must not eat and they must not drink water. 3:8 Every person and animal must put on sackcloth and must cry earnestly 2  to God, and everyone 3  must turn from their 4  evil way of living 5  and from the violence that they do. 6  3:9 Who knows? 7  Perhaps God might be willing to change his mind and relent 8  and turn from his fierce anger 9  so that we might not die.” 10
