4:1 But it displeased [H3415] Jonah [H3124] exceedingly [H1419] [H7451] , and he was very angry [H2734] .

4:2 And he prayed [H6419] unto the LORD [H3068] , and said [H559] , I pray [H577] thee, O LORD [H3068] , [was] not this my saying [H1697] , when I was yet in my country [H127] ? Therefore I fled [H1272] before [H6923] unto Tarshish [H8659] : for I knew [H3045] that thou [art] a gracious [H2587] God [H410] , and merciful [H7349] , slow [H750] to anger [H639] , and of great [H7227] kindness [H2617] , and repentest [H5162] thee of the evil [H7451] .

4:3 Therefore now, O LORD [H3068] , take [H3947] , I beseech thee, my life [H5315] from me; for [it is] better [H2896] for me to die [H4194] than to live [H2416] .

4:4 Then said [H559] the LORD [H3068] , Doest thou well [H3190] to be angry [H2734] ?(Doest: or, Art thou greatly angry?)

4:5 So Jonah [H3124] went out [H3318] of the city [H5892] , and sat [H3427] on the east side [H6924] of the city [H5892] , and there made [H6213] him a booth [H5521] , and sat [H3427] under it in the shadow [H6738] , till he might see [H7200] what would become of the city [H5892] .

4:6 And the LORD [H3068] God [H430] prepared [H4487] a gourd [H7021] , and made [it] to come up [H5927] over Jonah [H3124] , that it might be a shadow [H6738] over his head [H7218] , to deliver [H5337] him from his grief [H7451] . So Jonah [H3124] was exceeding [H1419] [H8057] glad [H8055] of the gourd [H7021] .(gourd: or, palmcrist: Heb. Kikajon)(was: Heb. rejoiced with great joy)

4:7 But God [H430] prepared [H4487] a worm [H8438] when the morning [H7837] rose [H5927] the next day [H4283] , and it smote [H5221] the gourd [H7021] that it withered [H3001] .

4:8 And it came to pass, when the sun [H8121] did arise [H2224] , that God [H430] prepared [H4487] a vehement [H2759] east [H6921] wind [H7307] ; and the sun [H8121] beat [H5221] upon the head [H7218] of Jonah [H3124] , that he fainted [H5968] , and wished [H7592] in himself [H5315] to die [H4191] , and said [H559] , [It is] better [H2896] for me to die [H4194] than to live [H2416] .(vehement: or, silent)

4:9 And God [H430] said [H559] to Jonah [H3124] , Doest thou well [H3190] to be angry [H2734] for the gourd [H7021] ? And he said [H559] , I do well [H3190] to be angry [H2734] , [even] unto death [H4194] .(Doest: or, Art thou greatly angry?)(I do well: or, I am greatly angry)

4:10 Then said [H559] the LORD [H3068] , Thou hast had pity [H2347] on the gourd [H7021] , for the which thou hast not laboured [H5998] , neither madest it grow [H1431] ; which came up in a night [H1121] [H3915] , and perished [H6] in a night [H1121] [H3915] :(had pity: or, spared)(came: Heb. was the son of the night)

4:11 And should not I spare [H2347] Nineveh [H5210] , that great [H1419] city [H5892] , wherein are [H3426] more [H7235] than sixscore [H8147] [H6240] thousand [H7239] persons [H120] that cannot discern [H3045] between their right hand [H3225] and their left hand [H8040] ; and [also] much [H7227] cattle [H929] ?
