Jonah 1:1-3 New International Version

Jonah Flees from the LORD

1 1  The word of the Lord came to Jonah son of Amittai: 2  "Go to the great city of Nineveh and preach against it, because its wickedness has come up before me." 3  But Jonah ran away from the Lord and headed for Tarshish. He went down to Joppa, where he found a ship bound for that port. After paying the fare, he went aboard and sailed for Tarshish to flee from the Lord.
