這事約拿大大不悅，且甚發怒，【NIV】But to Jonah this seemed very wrong, and he became angry.
2 就禱告耶和華說：「耶和華啊，我在本國的時候豈不是這樣說嗎？我知道你是有恩典、有憐憫的神，不輕易發怒，有豐盛的慈愛，並且後悔不降所說的災，所以我急速逃往他施去。【NIV】He prayed to the Lord, "Isn't this what I said, Lord, when I was still at home? That is what I tried to forestall by fleeing to Tarshish. I knew that you are a gracious and compassionate God, slow to anger and abounding in love, a God who relents from sending calamity.
3 耶和華啊，現在求你取我的命吧！因為我死了比活著還好。」【NIV】Now, Lord, take away my life, for it is better for me to die than to live."
4 耶和華說：「你這樣發怒合乎理嗎？【NIV】But the Lord replied, "Is it right for you to be angry?"
