1 But Jonah was greatly displeased and became angry.
2 He prayed to the Lord, “O Lord, is this not what I said
when I was still at home? That is why I was so
quick to flee to Tarshish. I knew that you are
a gracious and compassionate God, slow to anger
and abounding in love, a God who
relents from sending calamity.
3 Now, O Lord, take away my life, for it is
better for me to die than to live.”
4 But the Lord replied, “Have you any
right to be angry?”
