Nineveh was the place, God wanted me to go. But I ran and told God no. For Nineveh, was a wicked city. Very sinful, and not pretty. I saw a ship, and I climbed aboard. I was a man on the run, running from the Lord. The ship was caught in a storm. It was my fault, I did inform. It was because I ran from the Lord. I told the crew to cast me overboard. Then, I was swallowed by a whale. Now that right there is a true fish tale. Three days in the whale’s belly, I did stay. I, Jonah, began to pray. I told God, that if He would get me out. I would go to Nineveh, without a second doubt. The whale got sick and spewed me out. Then I headed to the Nineveh route. I, Jonah, the man, that God sent was astonished as I saw, each one began to repent.
