But Jonah got up and went in the opposite direction to get away from the LORD. He went down to the port of Joppa, where he found a ship leaving for Tarshish. He bought a ticket and went on board, hoping to escape from the LORD by sailing to Tarshish.
(Jonah 1:3 NLT)
Then Jonah prayed to the LORD his God from inside the fish. Then the LORD ordered the fish to spit Jonah out onto the beach.
(Jonah 2:1,10 NLT)

This time Jonah obeyed the LORD’s command and went to Nineveh, a city so large that it took three days to see it all .
