Jonah 4 Text (WEB)
  1. But it displeased Jonah exceedingly, and he was angry.
  2. He prayed to Yahweh, and said, "Please, Yahweh, wasn't this what I said when I was still in my own country? Therefore I hurried to flee to Tarshish, for I knew that you are a gracious God, and merciful, slow to anger, and abundant in loving kindness, and you relent of doing harm.
  3. Therefore now, Yahweh, take, I beg you, my life from me; for it is better for me to die than to live."
  4. Yahweh said, "Is it right for you to be angry?"
  5. Then Jonah went out of the city, and sat on the east side of the city, and there made himself a booth, and sat under it in the shade, until he might see what would become of the city.
  6. Yahweh God prepared a vine, and made it to come up over Jonah, that it might be a shade over his head, to deliver him from his discomfort. So Jonah was exceedingly glad because of the vine.
  7. But God prepared a worm at dawn the next day, and it chewed on the vine, so that it withered.
  8. It happened, when the sun arose, that God prepared a sultry east wind; and the sun beat on Jonah's head, so that he fainted, and requested for himself that he might die, and said, "It is better for me to die than to live."
  9. God said to Jonah, "Is it right for you to be angry about the vine?" He said, "I am right to be angry, even to death."
  10. Yahweh said, "You have been concerned for the vine, for which you have not labored, neither made it grow; which came up in a night, and perished in a night.
  11. Shouldn't I be concerned for Nineveh, that great city, in which are more than one hundred twenty thousand persons who can't discern between their right hand and their left hand; and also much livestock?"
Jonah 4 Text (Hebrew)
  1. וירע אל־יונה רעה גדולה ויחר לו׃
  2. ויתפלל אל־יהוה ויאמר אנה יהוה הלוא־זה דברי עד־היותי על־אדמתי על־כן קדמתי לברח תרשישה כי ידעתי כי אתה אל־חנון ורחום ארך אפים ורב־חסד ונחם על־הרעה׃
  3. ועתה יהוה קח־נא את־נפשי ממני כי טוב מותי מחיי׃ ס
  4. ויאמר יהוה ההיטב חרה לך׃
  5. ויצא יונה מן־העיר וישב מקדם לעיר ויעש לו שם סכה וישב תחתיה בצל עד אשר יראה מה־יהיה בעיר׃
  6. וימן יהוה־אלהים קיקיון ויעל מעל ליונה להיות צל על־ראשו להציל לו מרעתו וישמח יונה על־הקיקיון שמחה גדולה׃
  7. וימן האלהים תולעת בעלות השחר למחרת ותך את־הקיקיון וייבש׃
  8. ויהי כזרח השמש וימן אלהים רוח קדים חרישית ותך השמש על־ראש יונה ויתעלף וישאל את־נפשו למות ויאמר טוב מותי מחיי׃
  9. ויאמר אלהים אל־יונה ההיטב חרה־לך על־הקיקיון ויאמר היטב חרה־לי עד־מות׃
  10. ויאמר יהוה אתה חסת על־הקיקיון אשר לא־עמלת בו ולא גדלתו שבן־לילה היה ובן־לילה אבד׃
  11. ואני לא אחוס על־נינוה העיר הגדולה אשר יש־בה הרבה משתים־עשרה רבו אדם אשר לא־ידע בין־ימינו לשמאלו ובהמה רבה׃
Jonah 4 Text (Greek)
  1. και ελυπηθη ιωνας λυπην μεγαλην και
  2. και προσευξατο προς κυριον και ειπεν ω κυριε ουχ ουτοι οι λογοι μου ετι οντος μου εν τη γη μου δια τουτο προεφθασα του φυγειν εις θαρσις διοτι εγνων οτι συ ελεημων και οικτιρμων μακροθυμος και πολυελεος και μετανοων επι ταις
  3. και νυν δεσποτα κυριε λαβε την ψυχην μου απ' εμου οτι καλον το αποθανειν με η ζην
  4. και ειπεν κυριος προς ιωναν ει σφοδρα λελυπησαι
  5. και εξηλθεν ιωνας εκ της πολεως και εκαθισεν απεναντι της πολεως και εποιησεν εαυτω εκει σκηνην και εκαθητο υποκατω αυτης εν σκια εως ου απιδη τι εσται τη
  6. και προσεταξεν κυριος ο θεος κολοκυνθη και ανεβη υπερ κεφαλης του ιωνα του ειναι σκιαν υπερανω της κεφαλης αυτου του σκιαζειν αυτω απο των κακων αυτου και εχαρη ιωνας επι τη κολοκυνθη χαραν
  7. και προσεταξεν ο θεος σκωληκι εωθινη τη επαυριον και επαταξεν την κολοκυνθαν και
  8. και εγενετο αμα τω ανατειλαι τον ηλιον και προσεταξεν ο θεος πνευματι καυσωνος συγκαιοντι και επαταξεν ο ηλιος επι την κεφαλην ιωνα και ωλιγοψυχησεν και απελεγετο την ψυχην αυτου και ειπεν καλον μοι αποθανειν με η
  9. και ειπεν ο θεος προς ιωναν ει σφοδρα λελυπησαι συ επι τη κολοκυνθη και ειπεν σφοδρα λελυπημαι εγω εως
  10. και ειπεν κυριος συ εφεισω υπερ της κολοκυνθης υπερ ης ουκ εκακοπαθησας επ' αυτην και ουκ εξεθρεψας αυτην η εγενηθη υπο νυκτα και υπο νυκτα
  11. εγω δε ου φεισομαι υπερ νινευη της πολεως της μεγαλης εν η κατοικουσιν πλειους η δωδεκα μυριαδες ανθρωπων οιτινες ουκ εγνωσαν δεξιαν αυτων η αριστεραν αυτων και κτηνη
Jonah 4 Text (Latin)
  1. Et afflictus est Jonas afflictione magna, et iratus est :
  2. et oravit ad Dominum, et dixit : Obsecro, Domine, numquid non hoc est verbum meum cum adhuc essem in terra mea ? propter hoc præoccupavi ut fugerem in Tharsis : scio enim quia tu Deus clemens et misericors es, patiens et multæ miserationis, et ignoscens super malitia.
  3. Et nunc, Domine, tolle, quæso, animam meam a me, quia melior est mihi mors quam vita.
  4. Et dixit Dominus : Putasne bene irasceris tu ?
  5. Et egressus est Jonas de civitate, et sedit contra orientem civitatis : et fecit sibimet umbraculum ibi, et sedebat subter illud in umbra, donec videret quid accideret civitati.
  6. Et præparavit Dominus Deus hederam, et ascendit super caput Jonæ, ut esset umbra super caput ejus, et protegeret eum (laboraverat enim) : et lætatus est Jonas super hedera lætitia magna.
  7. Et paravit Deus vermen ascensu diluculi in crastinum : et percussit hederam, et exaruit.
  8. Et cum ortus fuisset sol, præcepit Dominus vento calido et urenti : et percussit sol super caput Jonæ, et æstuabat : et petivit animæ suæ ut moreretur, et dixit : Melius est mihi mori quam vivere.
  9. Et dixit Dominus ad Jonam : Putasne bene irasceris tu super hedera ? Et dixit : Bene irascor ego usque ad mortem.
  10. Et dixit Dominus : Tu doles super hederam in qua non laborasti, neque fecisti ut cresceret ; quæ sub una nocte nata est, et sub una nocte periit :
  11. et ego non parcam Ninive, civitati magnæ, in qua sunt plus quam centum viginti millia hominum qui nesciunt quid sit inter dexteram et sinistram suam, et jumenta multa ?
Jonah 4 Text (KJV)
  1. But it displeased Jonah exceedingly, and he was very angry.
  2. 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.
  3. Therefore now, O LORD, take, I beseech thee, my life from me; for it is better for me to die than to live.
  4. Then said the LORD, Doest thou well to be angry?
  5. So Jonah went out of the city, and sat on the east side of the city, and there made him a booth, and sat under it in the shadow, till he might see what would become of the city.
  6. And the LORD God prepared a gourd, and made it to come up over Jonah, that it might be a shadow over his head, to deliver him from his grief. So Jonah was exceeding glad of the gourd.
  7. But God prepared a worm when the morning rose the next day, and it smote the gourd that it withered.
  8. And it came to pass, when the sun did arise, that God prepared a vehement east wind; and the sun beat upon the head of Jonah, that he fainted, and wished in himself to die, and said, It is better for me to die than to live.
  9. And God said to Jonah, Doest thou well to be angry for the gourd? And he said, I do well to be angry, even unto death.
  10. Then said the LORD, Thou hast had pity on the gourd, for the which thou hast not laboured, neither madest it grow; which came up in a night, and perished in a night:
  11. And should not I spare Nineveh, that great city, wherein are more than sixscore thousand persons that cannot discern between their right hand and their left hand; and also much cattle?
