1 And the word of the LORD came unto Jonah the second time, saying, 2 Arise, go unto Nineveh, that great city, and preach unto it the preaching that I bid thee. 3 So Jonah arose, and went unto Nineveh, according to the word of the LORD. Now Nineveh was an exceeding great city of three days' journey. 4 And Jonah began to enter into the city a day's journey, and he cried, and said, Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown. 5 So the people of Nineveh believed God, and proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth, from the greatest of them even to the least of them. 6 For word came unto the king of Nineveh, and he arose from his throne, and he laid his robe from him, and covered him with sackcloth, and sat in ashes. 7 And he caused it to be proclaimed and published through Nineveh by the decree of the king and his nobles, saying, Let neither man nor beast, herd nor flock, taste any thing: let them not feed, nor drink water: 8 But let man and beast be covered with sackcloth, and cry mightily unto God: yea, let them turn every one from his evil way, and from the violence that is in their hands. 9 Who can tell if God will turn and repent, and turn away from his fierce anger, that we perish not? 10 And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them; and he did it not.

1 angela h = "Jonah is now ready to be obedient. He goes to Nineveh and tells them to repent or God will destroy them in 40 days."
2 angela h = "Much to Jonah's surprise, all of the people repented. This is the biggest revival recorded in history. We are not told the exact number saved here but in Jonah 4:11 we are told there are 120,000 children.  The king decrees for the people and their animals to fast and repent.Repent means to turn around and start going the other way. Not just stop what you are doing but to begin to do the opposite. "
3 angela h = "It is not God's intention that any should perish. He wants everyone to get saved. (2 Peter 3:9) Romans 5:8 says But god commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.God knew beforehand how bad we would be, and He still has compassion on us by offering us His Son, Jesus.So, when we repent, God gladly accepts us."
