Jonah 4


4:1 But it displeased Jonah exceedingly, and he was very angry.
4:2 And he prayed to the LORD, and said, I pray thee, O LORD
 [was] not this my saying, when I was yet in my country?
 Therefore I fled before to Tarshish: for I knew that thou [art]
 a gracious God, and merciful, slow to anger, and of great
 kindness, and repentest of the evil.
4:3 Therefore now, O LORD, take, I beseech thee, my life from
 me; for [it is] better for me to die than to live.
4:4 Then said the LORD, Doest thou well to be angry?
4:5 So Jonah went out of the city, and sat on the east side of
 the city, and there made him a booth, and sat under it in the
 shade, till he might see what would become of the city.
4:6 And the LORD God prepared a gourd, and made [it] to come up
 over Jonah, that it might be a shade over his head, to deliver
 him from his grief. So Jonah was exceeding glad of the gourd.
4:7 But God prepared a worm when the morning rose the next day,
 and it smote the gourd that it withered.
4:8 And it came to pass, when the sun rose that God prepared a
 vehement east wind; and the sun beat upon the head of Jonah,
 that he fainted, and wished in himself to die, and said, [It
 is] better for me to die than to live.
4:9 And God said to Jonah, Doest thou well to be angry for the
 gourd? And he said, I do well to be angry, [even] to death.
4:10 Then said the LORD, Thou hast had pity on the gourd, for
 which thou hast not labored, neither made it grow; which came
 up in a night, and perished in a night:
4:11 And should not I spare Nineveh, that great city, in which
 are more than a hundred and twenty thousand persons that cannot
 discern between their right hand and their left hand, and
 [also] many cattle?
