Jonah goes to Nineveh
(from Jonah chapter 3)




God spoke to Jonah again.

He said,  “Go to Nineveh. 

Tell the people there all that I told you to say.”

Then Jonah obeyed God.  He went to Nineveh.


Nineveh was a big city.

When Jonah got there, he said to the people,

“God says that he will destroy Nineveh in 40 days.”


The people of Nineveh heard this.  They believed God.

They were very sorry for the bad things they had done.

They said sorry to God.

The king of Nineveh was sorry too.

He told everyone to pray to God to save Nineveh.


God saw how sorry the people of Nineveh were.

He was pleased.

He did not destroy Nineveh.
