The People of Nineveh Repent

The word reached[a] the king of Nineveh, and (A)he arose from his throne, removed his robe, covered himself with sackcloth, (B)and sat in ashes. And he issued a proclamation and published through Nineveh, (C)“By the decree of the king and his nobles: Let neither man nor (D)beast, herd nor flock, taste anything. Let them not feed or drink water, but let man and (E)beast be covered with sackcloth, and let them call out mightily to God. (F)Let everyone turn from his evil way and from (G)the violence that is in his hands. (H)Who knows? God may turn and relent (I)and turn from his fierce anger, so that we may not perish.”
