The King James Version Bible

Jonah 4:2-4

  1. And he prayed unto 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 unto Tarshish: for I knew that thou art a gracious God, and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repentest thee of the evil.

  2. Therefore now, O LORD, take, I beseech thee, my life from me; for it is better for me to die than to live.

  3. Then said the LORD, Doest thou well to be angry?
