JonahThe Compassion of God

The Book of Jonah

NinevehJoppa JerusalemJonah 4:1-2But it greatly displeased Jonah, and he became angry. 2 And he prayed to the LORD and said, Please LORD, was not this what I said while I was still in my own country? Therefore, in order to forestall this I fled to Tarshish, for I knew that Thou art a gracious and compassionate God, slow to anger and abundant in lovingkindness, and one who relents concerning calamity.Jonah 4:10-11Then the LORD said, You had compassion on the plant for which you did not work, and which you did not cause to grow, which came up overnight and perished overnight. 11 And should I not have compassion on Nineveh, the great city in which there are more than 120,000 persons who do not know the difference between their right and left hand, as well as many animals? MicahWho is like Yahweh?

Micah 6:6-76 With what shall I come to the LORDAnd bow myself before the God on high?Shall I come to Him with burnt offerings,With yearling calves?7 Does the LORD take delight in thousands of rams,In ten thousand rivers of oil?Shall I present my first-born for my rebellious acts,The fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?

Micah 6:8He has told you, O man, what is good;And what does the LORD require of youBut to do justice, to love kindness,And to walk humbly with your God? Micah 7:18Who is a God like Thee, who pardons iniquityAnd passes over the rebellious act of the remnant of His possession?He does not retain His anger forever,Because He delights in unchanging love.Micah 7:19-2019 He will again have compassion on us;He will tread our iniquities under foot.Yes, Thou wilt cast all their sins Into the depths of the sea.20 Thou wilt give truth to JacobAnd unchanging love to Abraham,Which Thou didst swear to our forefathersFrom the days of old. NAHUMThe Prophet of Ninevehs DestructionNahum and JonahBoth Nahum and Jonah focus upon Assyria and their capital city of Nineveh.Both Nahum and Jonah contain prophecies of Nineveh's destruction.Both Nahum and Jonah close their books with a question.
