New King James Version
6 Then word came to the king of Nineveh; and he arose from his throne and laid aside his robe, covered himself with sackcloth (A)and sat in ashes. 7 (B)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. 8 But let man and beast be covered with sackcloth, and cry mightily to God; yes, (C)let every one turn from his evil way and from (D)the violence that is in his hands. 9 (E)Who can tell if God will turn and relent, and turn away from His fierce anger, so that we may not perish?
