Jonah 4:1-11

But it displeased
<03415> (8799)
Jonah
<03124>
exceedingly
<01419> <07451>_,
and he was very angry
<02734> (8799)_.
And he prayed
<06419> (8691)
unto the LORD
<03068>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
I pray
<0577>
thee, O LORD
<03068>_,
[was] not this my saying
<01697>_,
when I was yet in my country
<0127>_?
Therefore I fled
<01272> (8800)
before
<06923> (8765)
unto Tarshish
<08659>_:
for I knew
<03045> (8804)
that thou [art] a gracious
<02587>
God
<0410>_,
and merciful
<07349>_,
slow
<0750>
to anger
<0639>_,
and of great
<07227>
kindness
<02617>_,
and repentest
<05162> (8737)
thee of the evil
<07451>_.
Therefore now, O LORD
<03068>_,
take
<03947> (8798)_,
I beseech thee, my life
<05315>
from me; for [it is] better
<02896>
for me to die
<04194>
than to live
<02416>_.
Then said
<0559> (8799)
the LORD
<03068>_,
Doest thou well
<03190> (8687)
to be angry
<02734> (8804)_?
{Doest...: or, Art thou greatly angry?}
So Jonah
<03124>
went out
<03318> (8799)
of the city
<05892>_,
and sat
<03427> (8799)
on the east side
<06924>
of the city
<05892>_,
and there made
<06213> (8799)
him a booth
<05521>_,
and sat
<03427> (8799)
under it in the shadow
<06738>_,
till he might see
<07200> (8799)
what would become of the city
<05892>_.
And the LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
prepared
<04487> (8762)
a gourd
<07021>_,
and made [it] to come up
<05927> (8799)
over Jonah
<03124>_,
that it might be a shadow
<06738>
over his head
<07218>_,
to deliver
<05337> (8687)
him from his grief
<07451>_.
So Jonah
<03124>
was exceeding
<01419> <08057>
glad
<08055> (8799)
of the gourd
<07021>_.
{gourd: or, palmcrist: Heb. Kikajon} {was...: Heb. rejoiced with great joy}
But God
<0430>
prepared
<04487> (8762)
a worm
<08438>
when the morning
<07837>
rose
<05927> (8800)
the next day
<04283>_,
and it smote
<05221> (8686)
the gourd
<07021>
that it withered
<03001> (8799)_.
And it came to pass, when the sun
<08121>
did arise
<02224> (8800)_,
that God
<0430>
prepared
<04487> (8762)
a vehement
<02759>
east
<06921>
wind
<07307>_;
and the sun
<08121>
beat
<05221> (8686)
upon the head
<07218>
of Jonah
<03124>_,
that he fainted
<05968> (8691)_,
and wished
<07592> (8799)
in himself
<05315>
to die
<04191> (8800)_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
[It is] better
<02896>
for me to die
<04194>
than to live
<02416>_.
{vehement: or, silent}
And God
<0430>
said
<0559> (8799)
to Jonah
<03124>_,
Doest thou well
<03190> (8687)
to be angry
<02734> (8804)
for the gourd
<07021>_?
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
I do well
<03190> (8687)
to be angry
<02734> (8804)_,
[even] unto death
<04194>_.
{Doest...: or, Art thou greatly angry?} {I do well...: or, I am greatly angry}
Then said
<0559> (8799)
the LORD
<03068>_,
Thou hast had pity
<02347> (8804)
on the gourd
<07021>_,
for the which thou hast not laboured
<05998> (8804)_,
neither madest it grow
<01431> (8765)_;
which came up in a night
<01121> <03915>_,
and perished
<06> (8804)
in a night
<01121> <03915>_:
{had pity: or, spared} {came...: Heb. was the son of the night}
And should not I spare
<02347> (8799)
Nineveh
<05210>_,
that great
<01419>
city
<05892>_,
wherein are
<03426>
more
<07235> (8687)
than sixscore
<08147> <06240>
thousand
<07239>
persons
<0120>
that cannot discern
<03045> (8804)
between their right hand
<03225>
and their left hand
<08040>_;
and [also] much
<07227>
cattle
<0929>_?
