New King James Version
The People of Nineveh Believe
5 So the (A)people of Nineveh believed God, proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth, from the greatest to the least of them. 6 Then word came to the king of Nineveh; and he arose from his throne and laid aside his robe, covered himself with sackcloth (B)and sat in ashes. 7 (C)And he caused it to be proclaimed and published throughout Nineveh by the decree of the king and his [a]nobles, saying,
Let neither man nor beast, herd nor flock, taste anything; do not let them eat, or drink water.
- Jonah 3:7 Lit. great ones
