Jonah 3:4-6 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

Jonah went to the center of the city and began speaking to the people. He said, “After 40 days, Nineveh will be destroyed!”

The people of Nineveh believed God. They decided to stop eating for a time to think about their sins. They put on special clothes to show they were sorry. All the people in the city did this, from the most important to the least important.

When the king of Nineveh heard about this, he left his throne, removed his robe, put on special clothes to show that he was sorry, and sat in ashes.[a]
