Bible: Jonah 4:1-3

Jonah Responds to God’s Kindness

4:1 This displeased Jonah terribly 1  and he became very angry. 2  4:2 He prayed to the Lord and said, “Oh, Lord, this is just what I thought 3  would happen 4  when I was in my own country. 5  This is what I tried to prevent 6  by attempting to escape to Tarshish! 7  – because I knew 8  that you are gracious and compassionate, slow to anger 9  and abounding 10  in mercy, and one who relents concerning threatened judgment. 11  4:3 So now, Lord, kill me instead, 12  because I would rather die than live! 13
