Jonah 4:1-3 New International Version

Jonah's Displeasure

4 1  But to Jonah this seemed very wrong, and he became angry. 2  He prayed to the Lord, "Isn't this what I said, Lord, when I was still at home? That is what I tried to forestall by fleeing 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, Lord, take away my life, for it is better for me to die than to live."
