New King James Version
10 (A)Then God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God relented from the disaster that He had said He would bring upon them, and He did not do it.
Jonah’s Anger and God’s Kindness
4 But it displeased Jonah exceedingly, and he became angry. 2 So he prayed to the Lord, and said, “Ah, Lord, was not this what I said when I was still in my country? Therefore I (B)fled previously to Tarshish; for I know that You are a (C)gracious and merciful God, slow to anger and abundant in lovingkindness, One who relents from doing harm. 3 (D)Therefore now, O Lord, please take my life from me, for (E)it is better for me to die than to live!”
4 Then the Lord said, “Is it right for you to be angry?”
