About Jehovah has patience with Jonah
Jonah refused to go to Nineveh on behalf of Jehovah to tell the inhabitants to stop doing bad things. Instead he walked the other way and boarded a boat. On the way it started to storm. Jonah's guilt, he should have listened to Jehovah. He let himself be thrown overboard and the storm stopped. In the sea Jonah was swallowed up by a big fish. Jonah promised to always obey Jehovah. Then the fish spat Jonah on the beach. Later Jonah still went to Nineveh, reminded the people to behave and thus saved the city from desolation by Jehovah.
